Rogue Trader Imperial Army and 'Bring Out Your Lead' Olivia

As many of you probably know there has been a steady 'Oldhammer' movement (probably beginning the day 4th edition Warhammer Fantasy Battle released). The special event miniature for the 2017 'Bring Out Your Lead' event was a miniature based off an iconic image from the Rogue Trader book. Although I couldn't attend I put up a 'figure wanted' post on Facebook and quite unexpectedly some people arranged to get one to me!





I couldn't let 'Olivia' languish in the queue for long, and I decided to paint up a bunch of other old Rogue Trader 40K era figures at the same time, in a matching scheme. I seriously doubt I would have ever painted the majority of these guys. Most were acquired in random lots and I really wasn't all that interested... but I ended up enjoying them. Regulation kit is not their priority but they look like a hard-bitten group of bad asses.

    1. Thanks! Years of collecting and building... I'm running out of space (if I haven't already).

  2. Brilliant group of figures, very nicely painted. I'm very jealous as I would quite like one of those Olivia figures!

    1. Thanks! That figure is from Wargames Foundry, appeared in the RT book but was never released by Citadel.

    2. Interesting - I've got a couple of those old guardsmen, but he's new to me. I like your buildings, too.
