I find the misadventures of Rogue Traders (aka Space Pirates) very interesting, as well as any fluff about their ships and crew. I enjoyed reading about Lucian Gerrit in the Rogue Trader book series by Andy Hoare, though i suspect that the third book in the trilogy will never be written. The Blackstone fortress novel was also an interesting read, featuring disgraced rogue trader Janus Draik. But i digress…
When Kill team: rogue trader was released, i was instantly drawn to the enemy forces. Crew mates infected with Gellerpox who sabotage a ship’s geller field seemed very grimdark.
i though it a fairly simple conversion to turn nightmare hulks into Vox Shamblers (but without the Gellercaust masks as i am not a fan [Ed: i.e couldn’t be bothered]). The hulks are a little small out of the box, so i built them up slightly with greenstuff (thankfully kitbashing nurgle minis is very forgiving for a newbie green-sculptor like me).
I soon wanted to create other bits from the rogue trader set. I had two Chthonian Larvae (from the Rackham confrontation range) in the bitz box and they would look perfect as sludge-grubs.
All i need now is to find a suitably large mini to make a nightmare hulk!
