Still kickin’ it Rogue Trader-style today. I’ve got three of the Rogue Trader Orks that I started painting before, alognside and after the recent RTB02 Ork troopers. Allowing myself to finish this trio was my “reward” for wading through the troopers.
As you can plainly see here, I’m still leaning pretty hard into the general Desert Camo/scavenged gear theme. I mean, given the shape of that shoulder pauldron, what choice did I have really than to paint it as one that had been scavenged and cut to be fit for a new purpose. Useful stuff, that Ceramite! At one point I was going to go into the DAK theme, given the sculpts on some of these early Orks, but it’s a bit on the nose for me in 2019. There might still be a palm tree with an Orky Skull underneath at some stage, but I don’t feel a need to emulate the uniforms – even when the models are basically wearing them, like Flamer (Burna?) Boy here. I’ve got a couple more RTB02 troopers finished, and a couple more to try and finish tonight to post alongside before we tick over into November. Wish me luck!
