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 :)

  4. Some paint jobs are a chore and even when finished I tend to only see the errors in some figures. In this case I agree with the lads above, that guy looks like a fun miniature, well painted to me :)
