Rogue was a Genetic Infantryman on the world of Nu-Earth where the Southers fight the Norts in a dirty battle of chemical and biological warfare that has made the atmosphere lethal. The genetic infantry were designed to survive and breath this toxic atmosphere but were almost completely wiped out in the Quartz Zone Massacre. They were betrayed by someone on their own side and the sole surviving GI, Rogue, has dedicated his life to hunting down the traitor.
The Boardgame takes a few liberties with the storyline allowing all six players to play a different GI, all searching for the traitor. (Picture from Boardgamegeek.com). The game used a hex game board representing different areas of Nu Earth and several packs of cards for equipment, encounters and enemies.
Games workshops even produces a metal Rogue Trooper model which I bought and painted to accompany the game. Unfortunately I don't know what happened to my model - I presume it went with the game when I gave it to a friend. I've recently seen a couple of near mint copies up for sale on EBay but they always seem to fetch a very high value at the end of the auction, certainly beyond my limited means. Now I look back and curse myself for parting with both items because I remember it being a great game.
