I alluded to this model the other day – it was another one that Marouda chose for me to paint that had been sitting primed on my desk since …well, not too long after the Rogue Trader box was released two years ago. A nice, but extremely tiny model, I was able to get Axi done from start to finished over the course of about 24 hours, which is always nice. Of course, it still leaves the rest of the Rogue Trader Crew – and their opponents to paint, but you can’t have everything in a day.
Personally, I’d love to see more of this sort of thing in miniatures, especially in 40k. We could use more doggoes and kitties.
As a little bonus, here’s the third of the models(? pieces? sculpts?) that Marouda chose for me to finish out of that first batch – along with the Slaaneshi champion, the Cultist – and before Aximillion. Basically, I repainted the two kitties on it to resemble Leonard (who is one of this blog’s mascots, and unfortunately much more of a Naughty Boy than a Good Boy with his predecessor and spiritual sister, Siousxie – better known to us over the years as “Little Girl” or “Lil’ Grill”.
I’m not sure which of the two would be smarter, but she was definitely a lot tougher. So she gets the upper spot here. Lil’ Grill’s fur looks a fair bit more dirty here than it does in hand. Damn contrast “white” – but the more important thing is that it looks good in hand.
