Hey all, this thread will be for all the 40k, Necromunda and all other manner of things I paint for my ever growing collection of 40k models.

The First set of figures I have made is a Rogue Trader crew. This Crew is actually one of the more legit Imperial crews I'll be making. I plan to make alot of small crews that are more diverse and out on the fringes of the Imperium with all manner of Xenos and other Scumbags filling there ranks.

 I'll be using the Rogue stars rule set for these guys for small RPGish battles set in the background of the Imperium.

First the Rouge Traders semi-legal henchmen... both dangerous Xenos of course.


The guy on the left is a reaper space Henchman figure and the guy on the right is made of chaos Marauders and Cadian bits.

Now for The Rogue Trader and his right hand Wolfman...


The Rogue Trader is a Privateer Press Rutger Shaw model and the wolfman is made from a privateer press Argus head and Ork nob Bitz with a Green Stuff fur back and hands and Space wolf tail. I was trying for a 40k version of Han Solo and Chewbacca with these two guys.

And a Group shot of them all.


I've got alot more 40k, Necromunda and other 40k projects on the go so I'll be back soon with more.   :)

Good start to your crew.
"Peace" is that brief, glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading.

Nice conversions and painting, definitely see the Solo/Chewbacca in the pair.

Thanks alot guys  :)
Next up is a pair of Mercenaries scumming it up outside a wine sink looking for any work they can find... for the Imperium or otherwise.



They are made from reaper dreadmere mercenaries with gw gubbins on them.

Next up is Plague Father Vernan and his crew.
Plague Father Vernan was a noble of the Imperium untill he found a Death Guard artifact from the days of the Heresy. It was a Gauntlet from a traitor captain who's name is lost to time, the gauntlet possessed Vernan and "blessed" his body, mind and soul.
Now he leads his devoted from world to world striking from the darkest corners looking for others to follow in Papa Nurgle's light.

 



They are a mix of GW cultists, possessed and Goblin town Goblins from GWs hobbit range.

I like the mercenaries. Nice way to bring a fantasy miniature into technofantasy :D. The figures look like they could converted to civilians as well.

Excellent stuff, especially the Han Solo/Chewbacca tribute. What a great idea!

Thanks alot for the comments!  :)

Like alot of people it seems, I have been working on the new Necromunda boxed game, I do like the what they've done with it... but i think when more gangs are out is when i'll get more into it.

First up is the start to my Goliath gang,



And next is the first (hopefully of many) hired guns for Necromunda Gor Half-Horn and i must say he was a pleasure to paint as the first Forgeworld model I have ever bought.

Thanks alot  :).

Next up is the start of my Orlock gang the Iron Reapers.



I went with abit more of a classic Orlock colour scheme from the old days.

Next up is a Necromundan bounty hunter with power sword and autogun.



She's a Hasslefree Andreah mini with a GW base repurposed to be a former House Escher Turned hired gun.

And lastly is Lord Deadalus of House Volkner of Galvia. He's going to be the pilot for my imperial knight when I finish it... which will be forever away at this rate:(.



He's a Reaper pathfinder Aric of Halvon mini with painted bionic eye and hand to give him that 40k vibe.

That nobleman looks great! I really like the subtle changes to 40k him up. The colour scheme looks good too.

 Cool, how tall are those Orlocks compared to say the Cadin/Marauder fig.
