Hardcore Miniatures Rogue Trader Characters: Unboxing

rogue trader characters 2It’s always cool to see smaller companies growing and branching out. Especially with the way certain companies are pricing their minis lately. Hardcore Miniatures has really stepped up their game and greatly expanded their line. We’re going to talk about the Rogue Trader Crew, but they have so much more on there! 

Just to note, when you’re looking for new releases, when they put things on pre-order, they always put them on sale so that is a good time to pick them up.

rogue trader characters 3For models, this awesome and handcrafted, the price really is great (the minis we’re looking at today are around $15), and compared to something like GW, they are way cheaper and have tons of options in every kit. They have so many parts, that all you need is another torso and you can make a bunch. 

The Bits!

rogue trader characters 4The bits come wrapped in little baggies and we’ve never had issues with anything really breaking. Sometimes they come off, but we’ve never had any damage. There are usually a few weapons and head variants with them and are all just super high quality.

Built Minis

So Many Options

rogue trader characters 12As we said, each model just comes with so many options and you can really make them into a ton of different Grimdark-styled minis. This is a perfect example of “Inspired by”. They don’t do 1-to-1 copies, but take something we love and make it Grimdark!
