Rogue Trooper: Genetic Infantrymen

The first white metal models from the Mongoose Rogue Trooper Kickstarter arrived the other day and haven fallen woefully behind on other Kickstarters I have resolved to keep on top of this one, painting stuff up as it arrives.

The three GI's have been sculpted by Gary Morely and, as you can see above, fit nicely in with the one that was released in the Judge Dredd range. In deed, the models are better sculpted and have details such as the biochip on the las-rifle sculpted on (I had to paint it on the original).

I used the same base paint, dip, highlight approach I did earlier this year and it works well enough for wargames figures (the blown up pictures show the roughness of the technique but they look fine in real size).

Mongoose have shared pictures of half the Nort infantry squad on the Kickstarter so hopefully not too much longer before we get another fix of Nu-Earth goodness...

Painting Target: 459/1000


  1. Great work Steve - big fan of Rogue Trooper - nice one.

  2. Nice work. The sculpts don't look to bad. I'll be interested to see what the rest look like.
