Abdul Goldberg, the most infamous Rogue Trader.

He's done!


As usual a few good things and a few bad things but I'm very pleased with getting him done.


The majority of the figure is Eureka's Voltaire figure. I'm more of a Rousseau guy, but I don't think anyone makes a figure for him. The weapons and servo skull are from the Cadian trooper boxed set, as well as the respirator mask. The backpack and extra tube for the respirator are from Dragon Forge.


In addition to being happy with how he turned out I am really happy at how the photos turned out. I used all of my gear and knowledge from the photography course I took and processed the images in Lightroom. I'm really proud of them.

Here is the back story and stats for him that I'm posting in the Album in The Emporium of Rogue Dreams. Be sure to check out the others and see whose Rick Priestly picks as the ultimate Rogue Trader.

Abdul Goldberg! The name conjures up fear and loathing. No one knows the true origin of this Rogue Trader, he has been seen in many systems, never with the same crew. There are many stories about Abdul, this is one.

Before arriving at the fringe of the Empire, Abdul was a very zealous inquisitor. He enforced the Emperor's will with a vengeance but carried a dark secret, he was a psyker. At first he was able to hide his budding power. His power was revealed as he unleashed powerful wind blasts against the heretics who had killed his beloved acolyte, Brother Yorick. Abdul now travels with his loyal companion forever at his side as a servo skull.

Although Abdul is equipped with a full compliment of weapons, he is most often seen with his trusty bolt pistol “Fatima” and his Chain Sword “Te Absolvo”.

    1. Thanks JB, I can crank out single figures when I have to. Still not a 1 hour paint job. The main problem for me is when I block out all else to work on the figure. I felt like I kept a reasonable balance with this one.

    1. Thanks dGG. As with most things I do, there's some glimmers of the sublime but somehow always some things that could have used just a touch more work.

    1. Thanks Simon, that's what I was going for. I feel all space pirates need to be decked out in sartorial splendor.

    1. Thanks Phil, I like to do a whole mess of color and metals on all my figures. I also thought that it wouldn't be Rogue Trader without warning stripes. I balked at my original plan of writing the swords name across the stripes. By the time I got to that I was tired and didn't think I could control the brush that small.

    2. Seriously -- I've been feeling a little itch to do a small RT or similar sci-fi (or sci-fi-ish) project for a little while now, but keep talking myself out of it. I think seeing this figure may have pushed me over the edge!
