The power of 40k artwork shall never be underestimated! On many occassions flipping through various 40K codices, one gravitates towards the dark gothic 40K artwork that abound and sometimes one thinks: "Wouldn't that make a great model to create, paint and play on a 40k table?".
Prior to investing in a Coteaz-wing army, I had experimented with including a Terminator-armour clad Inquisitor Lord in my army list, armed with Psycannon / Daemonhammer combo, with varying degrees of success.
Guess wot? I’ve started a new army for this new 2013. After almost
2 years playing an all-Grey Knight army in various guises (Mordrak Bomb,
Draigowing, Thawnwing, etc) I’ve opted to bolster my collection by playing the
Inquisitorial Daemonhunters faction, a.k.a Coteaz-wing. By taking Coteaz as HQ,
this unlocks Inquisitorial options as troops.

Pretty spry for a pensioner! In fact, the poster made me think of an old entry from that arcane curiousity, the Codex: Catachan Jungle Fighters (4th ed., still available as a PDF download from the GW website here). Take a look at a sample of the old codex interior art if you don't believe me:
Coincidence? Despite a 10-year difference, I think not! GW better get their act together, I sense lawsuit! :)
