    Rogue Trader : Battle at the Farm - Additionnal OrkTroops part 1

    It's time to add some new troops to these poor Orks! Let me show you 3 Nobz of the Drop Legion, these posers come from a special unit named : The (Motha) Fokker Squadron! Leaded by a big fella nicknamed "The Red Nob" or sometimes "Manfrag Uruk Richthofen".
    Ok so, you probably recoganized some of the best Ork sculpted by Kev Adams during the RT era. Bulky and full of nice details, they are very cool to paint. I continu to use some WW1 references to paint my Orks, here I use the Legendary Red Baron Manfred Von Richthofen and his Red Fokker Dr.I. The black and white highlight perfectly the red color. I added some yellow to clearly show the Bionik arms and the Kustom weaponz... Hey posers Nobz !!

    Manfrag  is a mix of the Renegade Ork and a Nob with power armour.
    I added some stuff to feel the gaps of the conversion and I renforced his skinny calves in the same style of the other Nobz. Like on the Crimson fist I increase the details on the armours with reinforcing plates or air vents on the shoulder pads. The picture below show the conversion process, befor I scratched the ChaosStar and swap it by the IronCross.

    The big question ! How the Nobz store their back banner? To answer to this existential question, I created some Orkish inventions in green stuff!
    Answer : Low ranked Nobz store their back banner manually in a small backpack provided for this purpose (pretty boring!). Or for high ranked Nobz, Fokker Squadron first of course! They use a banner mounted on a telescopik tube controlled by a automatik Ork device on their back. Painted in Yellow... Hey, posers Nobz !
    Low ranked Nobz!
    High ranked Nobz!

    Make your own banners! Here I share the banners I created for my Drop Legion, enjoy :)

    2. These are glorious. You've pulled off a predominantly red colour scheme that's not Evil Sunz cos your iconography is so strong. Really grounds these lads in Rogue Trader territory rather than the later look of the Orks from the later hardback trilogy era. Seriously impressive.

      1. Oy Curis! You right, Red colour is too much associated to the EvilSunz clan... I try to do something "Fresh" with these models and I'm glad you enjoy the result!
        Thank you Curis!

    3. Your skills never cease to amaze me Nico. Love the conversion! It took me a little bit to figure out what bits you'd used to create him. Excellent :)

    6. Comme Jaekel qui s'y connaît en matière de bon goût! Que ce soit rajouter des éléments sur du Jes Goodwin ou du Kev Adams, y'a pas à tortiller, tu donnes méchamment le change :D

    9. Such beautiful work! The WW1 German theme is a splendid choice for the Rogue Trader Orks, perfect compliment to the Stahlhelms and stick grenades found on so many of those early models. As always I am jealous of your talent.

    11. C'est un peu un oxymore, mais quelle classe ces orks ! J'aime bien le coup de la bannière télescopique, un film d'animation là-dessus serait terrible à voir, ça coincerait bien sûr et un gretchin serait obligé de venir décoincer l'ork qui serait la risée de ses compères :)

      1. Yep la technologie Ork a ses défauts 😄 Mais comme tu le soulignes si bien... Heureusement les Gretchins sont là 😄
