RT601 - Adventurers - Squat Miner

Hello Friends,
I finally got around to finishing the Squat Miner from the RT601 - Adventurers range advertised in White Dwarf issue 99 back in March 1988, I didn't get much enjoyment painting this miniature  and felt it a bit of a chore, my reasons why are the lack of detail and poor sculpting as I think the arm positioning is not right, the details are shallow and I just found it horrible miniature, my paint station is littered with a variety of gorgeous classic chaos beastmen miniatures who deserved attention first but if I am to ever complete this project even the poor miniatures in this range must be painted. 

Progress on my project can be seen here

My RT601 collection is now complete as I finally got my hands on a reasonably priced Astropath Korm thanks to Steve Casey, in superb condition too.

I just have to decide who to paint next.

thanks for visiting and get following :)

RT601 - Adventurers - Squat Engineer

Hi Friends, 
Today's miniature is the Squat Engineer from the RT601 - Adventurers range published in White Dwarf 99 back in March 1988, an interesting miniature for a Squat as he seems to be dressed in a spacesuit and using a pair of binoculars while looking into the distance, another nice detail and typical of the humour at the time is that his belly is spilling out of his spacesuit. I imagine he has landed on some distant planet surveying for ore or Promethium.  I painted his spacesuit in a mix of Vallejo bright orange and deep orange with various washes inspired by Russian Cosmonaut's in their orange spacesuits.  I have been painting the Squat Miner too but he is far from finished.

Progress on my project can be seen here

On The Workbench - October 2014

Hi Folks,
Apologies for my lack of posts, here are few photos of what is happening on the workbench at the moment to tide you over until I finally finish the miniatures (hopefully soon), as many of you will know fitting miniature painting in when you have a seven month year old baby in the house it is quite tough but the odd half hour sessions I manage to fit in are starting to bear fruit.  I probably started too many miniatures at once.

This is all work in progress.

Here are C27 Beastman 'Shearmone', C38 Beastmen 'Crab man', 'Camel man', 'Owl man' and an old Warrior Maiden 'Mace lady' from the Citadel collectors series.  All they need is basing.

Next we have Chaos Wizards from the Citdael collectors series and a couple of Chaos Familiars 'Daemonet' and 'Lune', these miniatures still need plenty of work.

Next we have miniatures that are still being prepared, two cats given to me by Cheetor over at Sho3box (thank you mate) and two Squats from the RT601 Adventurers range, 'Squat Miner' and 'Squat Engineer'.

I hope to have these painted and up on the blog soon,

Thanks for visiting and get following.

Quick post today, I was looking for some reading material and came across this really cool Rogue Trader advertisement 'The European Range', can you name the publication this image was scanned from?

I just had to share it :)
