From 'Dave the Wizard from Bromley' back to the pages of 2000AD, Lee brings us the grim blu-skinned Rogue Trooper!
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 a joy to paint.
I have tried to stick to the colour scheme from the original comics but as with most of these characters some of the colours changed over time and with different illustrators. I have gone with a slightly darker interpretation of the blue skinned 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 remains is for Rogue to scour Nu-Earth for the Traitor General and avenge the Quartz Zone Massacre!
Awesome entry Lee! As a teenager I spent many a toxin-fueled evening reading 2000AD and thoroughly enjoying the adventures of Rogue and his biochipped equipment: Helm, Bagman and Gunnar. From these photos Rogue's skin tone looks quite vibrant, which seems a good fit for this scale. Nice!
Rogue will give Lee 7 points - well done!
