More Rogue Trader

A few more shots from the Rogue Trader game I umpired many moons back. Focusing mainly on the Eldar Renegades all set to do mischief to the hapless Imperial scratch forces thrown against them.

Looking for trouble.

Tip toe through the lichen...

Heavy weapons ready. Me doing something weird with my hands in the background.

Squats racing to the front/their death.

Eldar figures and photography all by the wonderfully talented Tears of Envy.

Communism in spaaaace

Stumbled across an article on io9.com featuring Soviet visions for life in space. Some nice terrain ideas in there!

The sun or exterminatus?

A bit of Rogue Trader

I am kicking off the blog with a few shots of  a Rogue Trader game I played last year, featuring Imperial and Eldar forces clashing over an abandoned outpost.

Please note the copious amounts of lichen in use as is de rigueur for all Rogue Trader games.

Imperial forces advance.

The Eldar Warlord takes aim.

The game ended up being very one sided with the Eldar force's multiple Shuriken Catapults and Multi Lasers cutting swathes through the unfortunate humans.  The Imperial Walker was shot down early so we let another come on in its place.  This too was brought down in no short order.

I was in the Umpire role for the game to make sure it went at a good speed and not to get bogged down in the nitty gritty of the rules.  The system was still very playable though I dreaded any close combat happening. Thankfully it never did!
