We played a game of sixth edition 40K using 1500 point Imperial Guard and Ork armies – with a definite Rogue Trader flavour!

Report is here: link

Thanks for looking!

Excellent BatRep. The imperial Guard figures were quite notable. I've never seen the RT Guard with updated weapons. They look quite good and I think I prefer them to the original loadouts.

I've got a 6th edition mini-rulebook on the way that I purchased just to keep current, but now I've got am itch to actually play it. What do you think of the new rules?

Very cool.
I'm curious for thoughts on the new rules as well. We never progressed beyond 2nd edition… and I prefer the smaller battles of Rogue Trader… but rumors suggest 6th has brought back some of that flavor.

Very cool. Love the old school Rogue Trader miniatures!

Thanks guys!

@ordinarybass – I really like 6th edition. We hadn't played it for a month or two so we were a bit rusty without our resident 40K guru (Dave V.) on the scene, but we muddled through. I'm thinking that the mini-rulebook would be a worthwhile pickup as the giant hardback is a bit unwieldy.

Just updated the blog post with some more Imperial propaganda images :-)

Looks incredible. Love the big bus. What was the airplane converted from?

What was the airplane converted from?

Polikarpov I-16, maybe?

Love the retro Guard, and the bus, and…heck, all of it. grin

Thanks guys!

The ork plane started out as a 1/48 GeeBee Racer, an inexpensive model from Testors, orked up with GW bitz.
