bloody pirate!) from the original set of Rogue Trader figures.
He's a cool looking dude but appears to have a bucket for a head. The bucket may or may not have a little face on it, I'm still trying to decipher it little lumps and bumps. I'm not going to bother trying to collect all these figs as it'd likely drive me potty!
The second figure that came out of the goop is this one from the Adventurers range which I did a big post about not so along ago. It says on her tab that she is a citizen but the Adventurers ad describes her as a Psyker. With a pose like that I think we all know that she's a Psyker, the gaming possibilities alone demand this to be the case!
Although this character isn't new I did have him in the soup in order to take his white undercoat off
( I use black myself). It was then that I noticed a similarity between his gun and the ones that one of the foundry fish men are armed with. The above figure is a Perp from the 2000ad range but doesn't scale well with them at all and I've always suspected he may have originally been meant for something else.
Here you can see the two guns side by side, both have cylindrical bodies with a mechanism on top in a cross shape. The bodies have a chamfered cap with what look like boly holes either side of the barrel. The barrels are again cylindrical with gubbins attached. The whole gun has look of a bottle with added bits. I wonder which came first? Bryan Ansell mentioned the fishmen on the facebook group the othet night and said that either he or Rick (Priestly) had converted them for either playing laserburn or playtesting Rogue Trader so I can only assume that the Perp was from around about the same time. Any mad theories out there?
