Rogue Trader Bonus Content!

Just wanted to add some bonus content to Greg's excellent RT battle report.  Above is a group portrait of my "Red Star" Ork army, prominently featuring the Red Barun, of course ;-)

Here are Greg's very well done Guardsmen.  I particularly like the conversion to "new style" lasguns.  The old flashlights never did it for me but the new ones look fantastic.

Here's a manky old wreck of a Predator I picked up on the weekend from a local shop.  I had some plans to incorporate it into my Ork army as a "looted vehicle".

And after an evening's work... the corrugated stuff is some textured plasticard I had laying around from a previous project.

And lastly... a video walk-around of the table from last week's game, filmed from a conveniently placed flying servitor skull of the Adeptus Mechanicus...

Love the looted vehicle - particularly the "trophy pole" accessory - perfect for Ork leaders...

I see I managed to get the Keystone beer can in the vid as well... :-)

The use of corrugated iron as added armour is a nice touch on the looted tank. Apparently the Canadian Grenadier Guards used some of that on their Sherman tanks during WW2 as well. The links below show some photos.

I knew it! Canadians are Orks! ;-)

Looking at your Orks Dallas, I think I need to dig mine out. I have a whack of them that Kevin Holland painted back in the day. Both armies look great. Cheers.

Hey Dallas. I was speaking with Dave V. tonight and he mentioned that you might be looking for some more Rogue Trader era Orks. I have a fair bit, some painted but most are only primed. If your interested, drop me a line at nocturnus@shaw.ca

Sounds great Mike, email sent... if I accumulate enough of the little blighters I might even be able to field a 5th edition 40K Ork army ;-)

I have a huge collection of circa 1980's Citadel figures including over 100 old Guard metal and plastic figures. But unfortunately that are still painted from the 1980's. :) I would love to strip my figures and follow your lead! Great job!
