Looks very good! This is dabbling in aspects away from warzones in 40k, in effect the best part of it all. Splendid Rogue Trader crew from what can be seen.

(Some picture please in future news sharing, if easily available. Happy )

The models are great. It seems like GW has a Nurgle fetish - they are their only mutants at the moment that look really mutanty, the other Chaos gods seem really restrained right now.


There's a lot more in the wiki than you think, check out the wiki contents

Love the new direction, getting away from the war zones and into the other great interesting theaters in 41st millennium is great.

I concur with the Nurgle yawn - I'm a huge Chaos fan boy but Rouge Traders would be better represented battling Xeno and/or Pirates then Chaos forces (My Rouge Trader crew will usually cash out and skip system as soon as they think there's any significant Chaos involvement - and rightly so even the exstreamly powerful and influential in the imperium are absolutely forbidden from even knowing "Chaos" capital C even exists as a real supernatural force. I suppose that might have changed after the fall of Cadia and the galaxy tore in half though).

Hopefully this is the first choices out of the box, purposefully chosen so the Dark Imperium fanboys jump on board and throw some money at it so they start to add some of the other groups in that would more familiar to the reminiscers - they do need to make money at the day and if a load of youngsters buying starter sets gets us things like squats and plastic sisters of battle them I'm all for it Happy
