Rogue trader Mad punk
A lot of work in progress at the moment, most of which being for the upcoming Oldhammer week-end in Newmark. This means a grey sensei, a space adventurers gang and on a totally unrelated note the 2nd edition eldar avatar (WIP pics to come to get your thoughts on the process).
The model I have to show today is the Mad punk form the rogue trader adventurers range.
It is a lovely model with some very pretty parts and some more bizarre ones (just look at the size of those gloves) but I found it very pleasant to paint. I am very glad to have a feminine member in the crew at last. She also adds a little more etnic diversity with a middle-eastern scout friend and the halfling which shows in the grim darkness of a dark future there may be only war but not only WASPs fighting it.
The colours used on the model are echoing those you can find on the other members to keep a sense of unity in the gang. The pink crest was not intended at first but my 3 years old daughter climbed on my knees while I was painting the model and she requested that I should add some pink somewhere.
Being a "yeah alright" kind of dad, I complied with her demand and justified this by the fact Jason Fulford aka RT adventurers master had already done that before :
I used the exact same set up to photograph this model as for the others but for some reason the nuances in the black skin don't really show here wich is a pity.
So now the warband has 5 members which is starting to be a good size. I have another 2 members to add but the 2 more members left won't be rogue trader models I'm afraid. I've found 2 lovely figures from the colonel Shaeffer's crew (I know, that's awfully 3rd ed) wich I like a lot and which I think could tie very well amongst the others with the proper paintjob.
