Mongoose 2000AD: Rogue Trooper

Earlier this year when I attended Salute, I picked up a three-miniature blister for Mongoose Publishing's upcoming "Rogue Trooper" miniatures game. 

I'm a big fan of Mongoose's Judge Dredd game, and have always dabbled in 2000AD's proto-Cold War classic - Rogue is an iconic character: one man (albeit genetically superior) ranged against a cold and uncaring world, driven by the need for vengeance...

Anyway, here's the Rogue Trooper himself...


As with most Mongoose figures, this model has a classic charm. He's very Rogue Trader, with older-style sculpting. This approach felt especially pronounced with this model, and some detail left a little to be desired (like the very blobby grenade on the harness; I had to repaint detail onto that).


All in all, a very nice model and good fun to paint - next up will be a nefarious Nort trooper...
