I've decided I want to collect all of the 1st edition "Rogue Trader" Space Marine models and turn them into a playable modern 40k army. I'm already well on my way, with just a few holes to fill. I just put a big dent in my missing minis list winning an auction of not just 1st edition mini's, but pre-1st edition minis. I have two of these guys already, so now i'll be able to field a full squad of 10. YESSSSS!!!!
This is the eBay photo. I'll be stripping them and painting them Ultramarine.
I can't wait until they arrive. I've never been happier about winning an auction, ever!
