Warhammer 40K Colossus Class Imperial Robot

A few months ago, a fan revision of the old Rogue Trader era 'Colossus class' robot showed up for pre-order on one of the Oldhammer groups on Facebook. Not really having any immediate use for it I decided to buy one anyway and have recently finished it. It is a seriously heavy chuck of metal!

As you can see here, I went with a Chapter Approved paint scheme that was in an old issue of White Dwarf. I decided to use the Imperial scheme since I thought it captured the bizarre aesthetic of Rogue Trader pretty well. I used a few decals on this one to speed up the process.

Oldhammer Fantasy Fighters

Over a year ago a friend alerted me that there were some old 80s Citadel and Marauder miniatures at a nearby flea market in rural Kansas- for a good price too, about $2 a figure. After buying a bunch of them I had to hunt down some proper shields (thanks to Blue in VT from Oldhammer in the New World and Svennn on Lead Adventure Forum). Rangers of Shadow Deep has re-invigorated my love of Fantasy again, so I have been chipping away on the Oldhammer lead to use as rangers and companions.  

Here's a group of fighters from Marauder, a Citadel sister company as I understand it. Not sure which range the crossbow fellow is from.

More on the way!
