RT601 - Adventurers - Stocktake

Hi Folks, 
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
Like the Rogue Trader rulebook and other RT adverts Metal/Thrash music and other pop culture influenced quotes featured in the advert,


"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

Space Pirate, Punk, Halfling Cook, Bandit, Imperial Official

Whoops, I almost forgot this guy who is on my painting desk being prepped.

Navigator


Here is what am I missing, only two miniatures remain to complete set.


Eldar Trader


Astropath Korm
If you have either of these miniatures and want to trade for any of my RT601 - Adventurers doubles feel free to contact me.


Hope you enjoy

  1. Nice collection indeed!

    I'm sure I got a spare Astropath Korm in an ebay lot I bought a while back. However, I think he may be in one of my Dettol stripping jars. I may be able to investigate at the weekend if you haven't had any other offers by then...

  3. I'm impressed you have got so many of them! I have been after the Eldar Merchant in the past as well but I have only ever seen it on eBay once but it had the helmet plume missing so I didn't bid on it. I'm not really after it any more (my unpainted miniature backlog is getting too large!) so if I ever come accross it at any swap meets I'll let you know.

    1. Thanks dude, most are original purchases from the day they came out, I had to pick up a few hard to come buy ones from EBay, I think I may have seen that trader and it looked like i had a green stuff helmet added or something, I didn't want to chance it. Be vigilant I have swaps waiting.
      cheers

  4. I was hoping no-one would notice! I was having problems with the posts on my blog having the ends cut off so I set the posts to hidden while I restored them using drafts from my hard drive. Well at least I thought I did, it turns out that I set the whole blog to limited access. I finished sorting it out on Monday, but there are still a few weird errors, like some of my posts show up as having over 26,000 g+1's! Go have a look!
