My first Rogue Trader force is going to be a band of orks, primarily built from the classic Space Ork Raiders boxed set. Two of them were seen in a previous post, and I've painted an additional four. The goal is to have roughly 30 of them, organized in squads of 5, with a smattering of command and heavy weapons figures to season. I've also got a "Killer"-class dreadnought (still on the lookout for a "Super-Attack Onslaughter" model, though).
After the orks are ready, I've got some space marines and mercs/adventurers on the agenda.
|Sweet, sweet beakies.|
|A truly motley crew.|
As my reward for finishing my fifth ork, I painted a Reaper Bones Great Worm. I went for a "sandworm" look; I drybrushed several layers of Citadel and P3 paints (Charadon Granite, Gun Corps Brown, Rucksack Tan, Hammerfall Khaki, and Bleached Bone) culminating in a Devlan Mud wash. I don't know how much the end result benefits from all those layers, but it was a fun figure to paint. This beast will serve as a burrowing GM-controlled creature.

|Luckily, reinforcements arrive for the boyz!|
I still need to paint the bases on my new orks and worm, but I'm going to wait until I have a few more models painted so that I can do it en masse. Time to paint some more orks! 'Ere we go!
