Hello all! No sooner was I back at the paint station working on a few Nurgle pieces then Diego (Pantheon of Chaos mastermind) dropped me a line about another one of his projects. 80s style Rogue Trader style orks from Kev Adams and others!
The greens you have seen above made my jaw drop and smile at the same time. They are both crisp and modern but seem to step out of an 80s issue of White Dwarf.
But what else would you expect considering the names involved?
The sharp eyed among you may recall a similar project put out by Diego a while back. In fact the painted models you can see above were part of that project if my memory serves me correctly. Those were excellent but these new sculpts surpass them in many ways.
Just look at the design and sculpting prowess in this green below!
Incredible eh? As I said, Kev's new space orks step right out of the glory years of Rogue Trader and beg you to paint their armour red and scrawl 'kil 'kil kil' across it!
Here is a closer inspection of some of the characters available.
Diego explained to me that many of the models you see here have interchangeable parts and so many different combinations are possible. Take a look here for an example.
Then there is the important issue of scale. As you can see from this side by side the measurements are bang on classic 80s Rogue Trader!
There is also a Rogue Trader style Grom the Paunch!
Of course, this being Diego there are plenty of future plans too. I will leave you with a quick glimpse of these before I go.
