While in conversation with WH39.9K, I mentioned that I might have a few of those very, very old CSM lying around from the Rogue Trader era. The plan was to find one suitable for our purposes and run a test paintjob on him (which was my failed gambit to spare OOP CSM#4 from the vat).
I should confess that I had absolutely no notion that it was called the Rogue Trader era at the time. In fact, I wouldn’t have even been able to tell you what Rogue Trader was; I was much more interested in spears and magic helmets, you see. Still, I enjoyed painting and was intrigued by a game called “Space Marine,” which was an entirely different scale (Epic) but had something to do with, well, mayhem and carnage in space. From that, I knew all things Chaos should be multicolored... and that they are.
Our stroll down Memory Lane continues on Wednesday when I unleash the Loyalists. You've been warned.
