It’s interesting how the Big Mob is always the unit people dread to paint. Maybe it is because the sheer numbers, or maybe it’s because Ork players, both then and now, are spoiled with character rich miniatures so the basic troops is a drag to paint. In any case, I have finally gotten around to complete my Big Mob include their mighty clan boss leader. That means I have a Painboy and Runtherd and a visiting unit of Snakebite Cyboar Boys left to paint to complete my 1,000 point Rogue Trader Ork army. The Big Mob in all it’s glory…

My 8 year-old nephew, soon to be 9 year-old nephew (HEJ DANIEL) recently got some Tyranid Termagants, but ofcourse a bit disappointed they came unpainted. Having never painted Tyranids myself I search “How to speed paint Tyranids” on YouTube and much to my surprise this amazing video called “How to Paint a Tyranid Hormagaunt” showed up and it is one fantastic video of how to speed paint Tyranids… so I decided to give it a go! I should also mention I’ve hacked a small Tyranid band together using the Shadow War: Armageddon rules creating custom rules for my nephew’s Termagants lead by…

Not much to say. I wanted the Warlord of my Bad Moon warband to look filthy rich so on top of all his wealth (teef) hanging on display, I painted the rims of his armour in gold! The Warlord and his trusted (sort of trusted) mob of Nobz. The Warlord’s retinue of oddboys. Double the Weirdboyz but still missing the Painboy and the Runtherd (to come). the Warlord and his so far completed waaaagh… main lacking feature is the Big Mob.

At the end of the day I think my two all time favourite Ork models from the Rogue Trader era (or any WH40K era for that matter) are the Super Cyboar and the Shokk Attack Gun. The Shokk Attack Gun not only is a magnificent model with the most outthere gun ever seen, the rules are equally crazy and the impediment of Orkish culture: You open a warp hole, another warp hole opens up roughly where your enemy is, you send through innocent Snotlings and they get insane traveling through warp so by the time they arrive at the exit…

When I first played Rogue Trader, I was still living in Denmark and I had to choose armies based on what I could get hold of. This Weirdboy is one I always wanted, but it never materialised in my local hobby shop. Now decades later I finally got a chance to paint him and as with all the orks from this era, the miniature is full of fun little details, like the hand grenade ear ring and the annoyed look on the weirdboy’s face. He clear just want to be left at home safe with his copper staff. Both Weirdboys…

I’ve just conducted a full audit of my miniatures and put a huge pile of them on on eBay for charity. However, looking through all the minis, I found one I’ve forgotten I’ve painted. One of my all time favourite miniatures: The Ork Weirdboy from the Rogue Trader era. So I thought I’d upload some photos of him and his minderz.

Back to the Grim Darkness of a Far, Far Future… Re-discovering Rogue Trader – A trip back in time. The last couple of months I have had this idea about bringing my old Realm of Chaos books to London and make some warbands and see if I could find anybody who would be interested in basically taking a 10 year step back in the Games Workshop time line. So far it has stayed as a though, untill I ran into this thread where this bloke was trying to find if anybody still played the good old Warhammer 40.000 Rogue Trader rules (first edition of…
