I thought it was about time I did a stock take on what RT601 Adventurers I own, what are painted and what are still to complete, what I missing and looking to trade. Painting my Adventurers collection is coming on slow but steady as most of my efforts have been diverted into my miniatures for the Oldhammer Event and I have to admit, I am really enjoying the wild variety of miniatures on offer while painting Chaos thugs and Beastmen especially to someone who wrecked them all first time round and most ended up on EBay.
These guy's remind me of many of the characters I have discovered in various space operas while painting and listening to Sci-fi audio books, like Foundation, Dune, Hyperion Cantos, the list goes on. They were created during Games Workshops/ Citadel miniatures most creative era and you will never see this sort of variety again, designed by Trish and Aly Morrison, Bob Naismith and Mark Copplestone.
The full original range can be seen here.
|Original Advert from White Dwarf 99, March 1988|
"Death sells... and you're buying" Attributed to Pirate Mustaine. A homage to the song 'Peace Sells' on the 'Peace Sells.... But Who's Buying?' Album by Megdeth.
"Can you hear the sound of an enormous door slamming in the depths of hell" Attributed to Calvin Morris. A homage to Thrash Punk band 'Discharge' from the song 'The possibility of life's destruction' on the 'Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing' Album.
The later extended range can be seen here and here.
Now here is what I have painted so far.
|Halfling Cook, Pilot Lorgar, Astropath Yerl, Female Warrior Jayne, Female Warrior Gabs|
|Space Amazon, Hero, Extech, Mad Punk, Pirate Captain|
|Testbred Slave, Cyborg, Ventolin Pirate, Imperial Official|
Here is what I have left to paint, hopefully by years end at a push.
|Squat Engineer, Imperial Scout, Psyker, Imperial Assassin, Tech Priest Schlan|
|Scum, Scum, Squat Miner, Pilot Rav, Tech Priest Zon|
|Hive Worlder, Hive Worlder, Old Pirate, Old Pirate, Ships Officer|

Whoops, I almost forgot this guy who is on my painting desk being prepped.
Here is what am I missing, only two miniatures remain to complete set.
Hope you enjoy
