Rogue Trader - Official Pics!

Wowsers! What a surprise!!

This looks like an amazing release, I really hope it has some RPG elements!

Here is a better look at some of the models:

Unfortunately it has been penned in for a ‘Late 2018’ release! 

I will be waiting with much anticipation for this one!

What do you all think? Will you be doing a Rogue Trader and if so, what would you call them and what is their story?? Please comment below!

Stay fluffy



  1. This is a really awesome set. I hope they use this and similar games as an opportunity to flesh out the Inquisition line.

  2. Can’t wait to get hold of it! The terrain looks great too!

  3. Wow! These look cool. Looks like a Rogue Trader retinue with Arch Militant, house troops, some sort of either shipmaster or techpriest... some sort of assassin and maybe a navigator?

    I worked on both the old Dark Heresy RPG and the Rogue Trader RPG, and managed to write my PC into the 40k canon: page 95 of Battlefleet Koronus. He was the nephew of the governor of the Calixian paradise world, Reth, was exiled at 18 due to a scandal where he killed a Calixian nobleman in a duel, then spent some time as a junior Inquisitorial acolyte.

    After 15 years of service, his master vanished under suspicious circumstances, and he was sponsored by a shadowy faction within the Tyrantine Cabal to pitch a legal claim on a defunct ancient Warrant of Trade to which he had a theoretical entitlement as a lineal descendant of the missing warrant holder, several generations on. To the surprise of all concerned he suceeded in his claim and ended up a newly minted Rogue Trader, albeit one tied by force and blackmail to increasingly unstable Inquisitorial control.

    He managed to acquire a mothballed Claymore class Corvette (I also invented that class, page 27 Battlefleet Koronus) and set off into the Koronus Expanse with a collection of exiles, oddbods and killers.

    The only thing that now grates about him is his name: Jabez Caul. Sadly, the name "Caul" was then adopted by GW for Belisarius Caul, so I find the name a bit annoying now. Oh well. I have actually been working on a Rogue Trader retinue & army for years, so this will boxed set wil be a must for me!
