Rogue Trader - Space Minotaur

Hi, today we have another of Diego Serrate's Space Raiders miniatures the Space Minotaur from the original Kickstarter campaign, heavily influenced by the original Rogue Trader Minotaur's from the 1989 Easter Sale Flyer.  I found this miniature a lot more difficult to paint and get into than the Piscean Warrior although I do love his gun as it reminds of the Manglore's guns (Zorg ZF-1 Pod Weapon) in the Fifth Element movie.



This is the second miniature I have painted from this range my first was the Piscean Warrior which can be seen here: painted Piscean Warrior.
Unlike the Piscean Warrior I have not seen many painted examples of this miniature except these two great blog post from JB over on Leadplague and Roebeast.

The Kickstarter campaign can be followed here: Space Raiders and for those of you who really loved Citadel's Realm of Chaos miniatures checkout Diego's The Pantheon of Chaos.

Here is a selection of miniatures from the Space Raiders campaign.



As you can see there is quite a selection of miniatures, space Zoats, an Ambull, renegade Orks and there's still more in development.


Still on the topic of non citadel miniatures I would recommend you go over to http://blindbeggarminiatures.blogspot.co.uk/ and check out all of Paul's lovely Pulp, Steampunk, Cthulhu type miniature sculpts, Paul sent me a gift of this native Amerian indian looking fellow brandishing what looks like a Vicker's gun I think he would not look out of place in the Cursed Earth or on Rogue Trader's Helsreach.



Thanks for visiting

Citadel Judge Dredd Perps Part 4


Borag Thungg Earthlet,

Here's this months 1985 citadel Judge Dredd miniatures I have been working on in my spare time.

These miniatures are again all from the JD3 Perps and Muties range.



First up is 'Mutie with Bazooka' although it looks more like a Lazooka from Rogue Trooper to me, again another member of the mutant band the 'Mutie Brotherhood' lead by Morgar and appeared in the Cursed Earth saga progs 65-66 plus the superb star pinups below by Brian Bolland where he is sitting in a shopping trolley eating pizza. He sports a Fez which reminds of 'the Turk' character from Kelly's Heroes.

Next another Mutie Brotherhood member 'Brother Jobee' you can see him eating Heinz beans in the pin-up below, armed with a double barrel shotgun and wearing riding boots dressed in jodhpurs, this mutie has style.

Brother Jobee is standing right of Morgar looming over Judge Dredd.

Next up we have 'Monkey Face' another Mutie armed with Spit carbine, I chose an orange jump suit as it reminded me of the old Planet of the Apes movies, I am surprised no company ever made a licensed Planet of the Apes wargame back in the day as there are loads of cool ideas for miniatures in the movies.

Check out the orange jump suits

Next we have a perp named 'Kelv armed with two pistols and sporting some sort of mechanical or armoured trousers, I don't remember this character in any of the stories if you do let me know, I am guessing the name is wrong. His face has real character and reminds me of the leader of the gasoline refinery in Mad Max 2.

Lastly we have two 'Citi-Def' miniatures, 'Citi-Def with Machine Gun' and 'Citi-Def', I did these in  the same colour scheme as the last months Citi-Def attacking miniature I blogged about, still undecided on which Citi-Bloc they are going to represent.
These two miniatures have also been sold by FASA as Temporal Marauders for their 1986 Dr Who range and are actually still available on various online shops like this one. I have read somewhere that these were incorporated in the Judge Dredd range in 1986 after the FASA Dr Who range but my Judge Dredd versions have 1985 on the slotta tags and on my FASA versions you can clearly see on bottom of the metal base the outlines of the slotta tags before the metal disc was molded around the tags or that's what the evidence suggests, not that it matters though.

Morgar's now prepped and on the painting table along with some wreckers so keep a eye on my twitter feed for work in progress images.

I hope you are following this blog as there is so many more to come, Florix Grabundae
