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
