Another entry to the Winter Painting Challenge and again I have taken inspiration from the pages of the British Comic 2000AD.
I bought this excellent figure of Rogue Trooper from Foundry a few weeks ago along with the Judge Dredd model I have already entered into the Challenge. As with Dredd it stands 32mm foot to eye and 36mm overall so its quite a large model. The casting was excellent with virtually no mould lines or flash needing to be removed and all the details were crisp and finely sculpted, all of which made it easier to paint.
I have tried to stick to the colour scheme from the origional comics but as with most of these long runnning characters some of the colours changed over time and with different illustrators. I have gone with a slightly darker interpretation of the blue skined genetic warrior.
This was a fun model to paint and will join Dredd in my modest (ie far too small) display cabinet. So all that remians is for Rogue to scour Nu-earth for the Traitor General and avenge the Quartz Zone Massacre!
Very nice work Lee the skin tones and helmet camo are great touchesReplyDelete
Another excellent 2000AD character. Well done.ReplyDelete
I plan to paint a Rogue for the challenge as well. I am glad you went first though as it gives me a benchmark to aim for. Nicely done Lee.ReplyDelete
I wonder when the movie will be made. Great hero figure. Looks good.ReplyDelete
Ready to find some Norts.
Great painting LeeReplyDelete
Looks great! I've got a Rogue Trooper that's been hanging around for some time but doesn't look like this one, now I'll have to figure it out.ReplyDelete
He looks dangerous … and blue! Never a good combination. Well done Lee. A merry Christmas to you and yours,ReplyDelete
