Lockdown 2.0 Project Log Day 95: Warband Progression


I've been working on clearing out my mancave today with all manner of junk going to the bin but I've stumbled across my old collection of Rogue Trader gubbins.

Some have been damaged in storage (I'm looking at you Talos unit!) and they all need a bit of work to dust off, touch up and get them into current standards of basing and NMM style paint scheme but it will give me 3-4 new warbands to introduce to the mix which should be fun!

Looking through the forces, I have the following:

Captain Santiago's PDF 

Dutch's Catachan Jungle Fighters

Assault Androsynth Class Combat Droid

Grod Gutshoota's Blood Axe Brigade

Midas Blackstar's Pirate Brethren 

It's going to take me a while to get them all fixed up properly but I'm hoping to have at least one done in time for the next battle report so watch this space!

I'm also hoping to finish stripping the paint off a selection of gubbins that I've had for a while now which should give me a better idea of what I've all got to work with but even then, I'm realising that I need to make some more odds and ends to add interest in games in different environments as I'd love to play a game with Vash, Glitterberry and the badly wounded Master Lee having to hold out against a bunch of Genestealers or Kryomek drones until Inquisitor Fisher turns up to save them but just don't have the figures at the moment!

As I've mentioned before, the more I've painted during this lockdown, the more I've played and the more I'm finding myself inspired to plan new games or plan new forces and as I'm keeping it to small warbands of a half dozen or so figures, it's fairly easy to keep the momentum going so who knows what other denizens of Farpoint will make an appearance in the coming weeks and months but in the meantime, All the best!


  1. I love the mix of figures here tied together with paint. One day soon I'll have a bunch of skirmish squads like this!

    1. Many thanks!

      I look forward to seeing your forces arrive!
