I could obviously pick from the several bands I've painted over the years but you know how it goes, one needs something a little fresh and fancy !
With that in mind, I knew pretty much from the start (actually from before even getting the rulebook) I would want to make a band out of the most classic sculpts from the Rogue Trader era. There's a little modern intruder of course but he really seemed to be made for that band.
|That's the sort of stuff I'm talking about !|
My first idea was to give him the imperial assassin as a first mate, the master/apprentice bond is obvious between the two. Some of my friends even suggested the Rogue Trader might be an oversculpt of the assassin and although I'm not 100 certain it is, I can definitely see why anyone would believe that. Anyway, here you have Garth Nestor Poirot.
The hacker is a former IT technician whose greatest achievement resides in successfully making people turning their device off and on again and 90% of his hacking feats come from the fact most people use 1234 or 0000 as passwords...
I'm really chuffed to have these done for many reasons, first I felt guilty of still not having any band painted for the game and also I was getting frustrated with the sculpts and their flaws, combined with paintjobs started in summer with all that means in terms of chalky finish and rough blends.
Aaaanyway, I'm pretty motivated and with work back on a routine that should help me get a few more things done soon enough. I have many villains/critters in line and two bands of a different style in mind so definitely getting warmed up for more Stargrave !
Happy hobby you all !
