I've never painted a .... before - The Rogue Trader 100 club

Well, if Whiskey Priest could nab the idea from the Lead Adventure Forum, I can nab the idea from him! :ugeek:

A recap of how these things work:

You pick a miniature.
You paint it, but don't show any WIP images.
You post it here before anywhere else.
You number your post and the challenge stops when we reach 100.
You can participate as many times as you like, but only once per day.

The theme behind this Rogue Trader flavoured challenge is 'I've never painted a.....before'.

Pick a race/troop type/figure that would fit in the Rogue Trader universe that you've never painted before and get at it. The mini's can be from anywhere, anywhen and any manufacturer.
The only proviso is that you it is a newly painted mini and not one you've had sitting around for ages. If you are entering please post your figure in this thread first but you can link back to here from where ever you like once that's done.

Now crack on!

Well, I figured that there'd be folk breaking new painting ground for the space pirate crew, and I finished a figure last night (I'll post him in a bit when I've cropped the photo) that I realised was the first of that sort I'd ever done but was sci-fi not fantasy. Basically, I wanted a badge for my signature and setting this up seemed the only way to do it :roll:

And with absolutely no shame at double posting, here's my opener for this challenge:

001: Imperial Guardsman
Range: Metal Magic "Spacelords" - S.E.C.S. trooper C3061-3067

When the weather warms a little I'll hit him with a matt varnish to take away the ink shine, but otherwise he meets my criteria for tabletop standard; bring on the dice!

Thanks Mattias. He ended up being a little rushed because I wanted to finish him last night, but you're right, they are enjoyable to paint. Now, what are you going to paint for this project? ;)

I've also come up with a badge that could go in the signature of participants (using a page edge logo from the RT rulebook), if they so chose, by placing the code below in their signature:

Looks great, I like how he flows together but still stays sharpe. The flesh is good without being too orange and clashing with his clothes.

Working on 2 entries now myself and both have been waiting since last BOYL for some paint heh

Considering the fact that I have never painted a single actual Rogue Trader era Citadel model I've got a lot to choose from. :D

Newt, the latest addition to my Necromunda Gang. Basing not finished yet and a bit of work to do on the hair but she's nearly there. A lot of fun to paint this one.
