Third Set of Heroes for Blackstone Fortress:


 Hi All,

As promised, here are two additional heroes for Blackstone Fortress, Neyam Shai Murad, a Rogue Trader and her Crusader colleague, Godfret de Montbard.

These two come from the Ascension expansion which is well worth its cost as it has a huge amount of excellent content for the game.

Neyam is essentially a badass gunslinger, who sports a brace of enormous 'Negotiator Pistols'. Yup, a bit mental. She's my primary go-to character when I'm not playing the Bad Guys - great fun. 


The model has such wonderful character. I particularly like her bladed peg-leg and the two floating servo-skulls (one helping to spot targets and the other to reload her pistol).


Godfret is our main 'tank' in the game. He's basically designed to taunt enemies and take the resulting punishment. A true meat-shield. Peter's been having a load of fun with him, holding chokepoints while the party scampers around, trying to achieve the missions' objectives. 

After the astonishing battering he took during his first few games I decided to paint the oath marker on his shield with 'Nope' as it pretty much sums up the result of most incoming attacks.


Next up: A Hobby Studio Update!

  1. Glad to hear you’re having fun with them- I had some soberingly bad dice rolls and they’re both dead in my universe!

    1. Well, I'm not surprised, we came within an ace of loosing Godfret a couple times already. He's such a magnet for pain. We've been startling lucky these past few missions with poor reinforcements for the villains. I'm sure that will change soon enough...

  5. Excellent paint jobs my friend! Too bad I find the story of the book rather dull otherwise I actually might be tempted to give this game a go.

    1. No, it was just waiting moderation. :) I get so much spam that I find its the only way to control the stream of garbage.

  8. Very nice indeed! I particularly like the flamboyant colours on the rogue trader. I didn’t keep my copy of BF long enough to move onto all of the expansions and I’m now slightly regretting it.... have you picked up the Zoat? So awesome that it nearly made me buy it all again so I’d have an excuse!

    1. Hello Jamie! Thanks for the comment. Yes, we've really been enjoying the game and its expansions (though I have been playing fast and loose with how I integrate them). The Zoat and the Ambull are coming up!
