Rogue Stars


Rogue Stars Models

I have managed to finish off a few random models this week, in a vain attempt to make way for new stuff, but there is still more to clear yet. This batch are for Rogue Stars and any other miscellaneous sci-fi games I get into. The first two are Aberrant Games models, both law keepers and so destined for a Space Cops crew, really nice models. A blast from the past is this old Imperial Psyker, I had a bit of trouble getting some old paint off of it, but after a quick paintjob, he will join the Star Cops crew. I thought these two Spartan Games models would make interesting armoured SWAT type models. As I was undecided what colour to go for, and they had been undercoatd in white, I opted for a Stormtrooper paint scheme, then again, that is just lazy. A spare Karman model got a repaint, not sure what for yet, but he came up quite nice. Finally, a Westwind armoured chap, originally for the Japanese Weird War II force, but using a Space Marine head, he is now a general hero type dude.

Airbrushing The Quinjet

Ages ago, I did a quick bit of modelling on a plastic Avengers Quinjet, nothing fancy, I just added some wheels. This was mainly to be some scenery at a space port or something. I put off painting it for ages as I decided to wait until I got a new airbrush and use it as another test piece. The top was okay, in fact I was quite pleasd with the cammo effect I managed, but I did get some nasty splatter on the underneath. I also decided I did not like the blue very much. I can fix that…

Ark Conversion

This is the Transformers model that I bought for next to nothing on eBay. I have removed all the internal crap and glued plastic over all the openings I could see from the inside, of which there were lots. It actually did not take long and in the greater scheme of things, this was one of the quickest conversions I have done, it only took three episodes of Game Of Thrones (I’m watching series 2 again). Now for undercoating with my new compressor, in white this time…

The Four Towers

For a tight games of Kill Team anf Rogue Stars, four towers makes for an interesting game. With the Kill Team obscured rule being nice and simple, a target is eitehr -1 to hit or not. This setup is three Pringle Towers and one self supporting Crosswalk Tower. I have also made a slightly higher ground tile for some variation. Just wait until you see what is next!

Elucidian Starstriders

They took a while but I am pleased with them. Lots of detail but fortunately only a few models so I wanted to spend a bit of time on each one. These are the Elucidian Starstriders, a small band of Rogue Traders under the command of Elucia Vhane. Although she does not look that dangerous, Elucia Vhane packs a hefty close combat punch and is remarkably durable. Larsen van der Grauss has an area effect protective field, but in a game like Kill Team, the models get spread out quite quickly. Equipped with some Krugeresque claws, Sanistasia Minst is the team medic, quite a lot of points for a medic who has to be 1″ from an injured model to have an effect, but I will have to see how she fares. Any good Rogue Trader team needs an Assassin and Knosso Prond is it. For some heavy firepower the Voidsman Gunner can lay down some suppressing fire while the rest more forward, at least that is the plan. Voidmaster Nitsch and the hound, Aximillion. Nitsch has short range weapons but in the confines of densly pack
