Rogue Trader: More Space Ork Motorboys!!
I told myself that I was finished with Der Afrikorkorps and wasn't going to do any more troops for it but....
I had so much fun doing the first batch of biker boys that it turned out to be hard to stay away, especially after I realized that I had not included Sleazy Rider in the group! That simply had to change. So Der Afrikorkorps has grown by 5 more biker boys. Here they are.
I had forgotten all about the existence of Sleazy Rider, but while lying in bed one night thumbing through an ancient copy of White Dwarf (from 1988 or thereabouts), I noticed him occupying the bottom of an advertisement for some special limited edition releases.
Grrr!!! How could I have put together a whole squad of RT biker boy conversions without recalling this fellow? He was a perfect fit for Der Afrikorkorps! It took a while but I tracked a casting down. The muzzle of the gun on the casting I bought was broken so I converted his weapon into a double barreled shotgun by adding two lengths of wire. I actually like it better than the original weapon.
