Rogue Traders and Mercenaries

3 posts in this topic

Been reading up on Rogue Traders recently and have been wondering what an army would look like with one at its core. I have a ton of ideas as to what it would like but I am wondering what others think?

Well, from what I recall, Rogue Traders were authorized by the Imperium to go out and make business with xenos in order to settle new worlds, and are one of the few in the Imperium allowed to do so. As such, Rogue Trader forces are usually small bands, rather than armies, made from a mix of individuals whom share the Rogue Trader's goals. 1st edition 40k was called "Rogue Trader", and there was nothing to stop you from having Eldar or Hrud or Zoats in your force alongside Space Marines and Guardsmen if you wished.
