I've been busy converting some more models, with 13 'finished' so far (I'm always finding new things to add to models), and I've started painting some of them too, though I don't have pics of the painting process yet - I haven't done much as the paints I've been storing have mostly dried over 3-4 years of non-use (despite storing them upside down in a cool dark room, so need to restock.
Here are pics of each model with a bit of info on each:
the Rogue Trader
the First Mate
A companion/side-kick to the rogue trader, sporting similar clothing. equipped with a bolt pistol and carapace armour. The eldar head adds a freshness and a young look that won't be seen elsewhere in these models, making him unique.
One of the main warriors in the rogue trader's retinue, this hip-shooting, fast-drawing gunslinger is equipped with an autopistol and bolt pistol, and sundry equipment. It took me ages to get the arms positioned the way I wanted them though I'm really pleased with the way this guy turned out.
the first model I made in this project, with what few parts I had available, this guy is equipped with a chainsword and an autopistol.
These four models comprise the Rogue Trader expedition, though I intend on adding more models to this soon. Here they are together:
a flamer-toting fanatic forming part of a pilgrim faction.
made from a ghoul, this guy is a relatively weak member of the pilgrims group.
two of the guards in the pilgrim's group, one armed with a shotgun, the other an archaic lasgun.
two members of the pilgrimage, though it's difficult to know their true purpose. Both are armed with a huge club and a pistol.
These make up the 2nd warband, composed of pilgrims. None of the character models have been created yet.
What follows are the one-offs (at least for now)
this is my interpretation of one of the old Confrontation gangs, known as brats (precursors to spyrers I guess). I'm not sure I pulled off the brat look that well, other than the crazy hair. I''m thinking of ordering some harlequins to use as the basis for such a gang, mohawks and crazy colours and all. we'll see. I have enough ideas in my head as it is!
possibly part of an ad-mech party or a member of an inquisitorial retinue, I'm not sure at this point. He could easily be an NPC or hired gun.
I love the way this model tuurned out - that round thing between his hands could be anything from a ball of energy (psyker!) to a levitating piece of archeotech or xenotech, not sure yet.
So that's what I have so far.
I'm already working on a huge ogryn (based on a skaven stormfiend, though there's little there to show yet. I'm also waiting for LOADS of bitz and kits to arrive so I can get started on some more models.
I'm dying to make an inquisitor (or at least an inquisitorial retinue member) in huge power armour, based on a space marine centurion, that will take up loads of converting.
