Rogue Trader: Dutchy of Kalitzfornia Part 2


So here we are with our third Rogue Trader inspired update showcasing two more conversions. We have on our left, the Kalitzfornian sniper and to the right there is a renegade techpriest.

Both are quite big conversions on some more Wargames Foundry miniatures. 

So the techpriest was made from a Foundry peasant kind of nobleman guy. I used a multitude of parts, from a Mantic Games power fist, some chains (mechandrites) from Brettonian peasants, bits and bobs from Warlord Games Germans, GW chaos cultist and finally, a spring from my fencing epee... which most likely shouldn't have been removed... but... y'know... ;D

He was a bit of a menace to do... but he'll do as some sort of non high-level member of the Adeptus Mechanicus, or the Kalitzfornian copy-cat version of that most esteemed institution.

The sniper was an easier conversion, but still not easy. You see, this model was originally a halberdiers-man. So amongst everything else I had to kind of remove his halberd and switch it for a GW Kroot rifle minus stupid spiky bits. The original thought for this model was that he was going to be a heavy weapons specialist, but seeing that the Dutchy of Kalitzfornia is rather broke, he ended up with a lame anti-tank rifle and not much else. I am happier with him as a sniper, although I am still keeping to my original idea of him not having anything better to use other than an anti-tank rifle. So he is an anti-tank sniper guy...? Anyways, we can at least be sure that if he manages to hit something with his big baby, they are going to be pulp.

The ammo on his chest is at least as long as my forearm. High velocity forearms clad in metal impacting onto your chest cant be pleasant!

I gave him a satchel from some WG (hehehehe, I just noticed that WG (Warlord Games) is backwards GW... maybe these companies set out with the direct goal of confusing us!). Anyway, from a WG (haha, cant stop laughing) German paratrooper.

And of course the classic shield thingy shoulder pad (impeccable English if I may add).

That's all for now. More updates are incoming!

  1. I might be inclined to make some models of this kind... We shall have to arrange a discussion form that allows us to converse visavi said topic.

    You might have noticed the Curunir Steam Tank which is as far as I have gone when it comes to OtT-models, but I am open for new experiences :D I should not stray too far and too long though, but a couple of 40K-models would probably not make me fall into the dark side...
