RT601 - Adventurers - Bandit, Tech-Priest Schlan and Psyker


Hi Folks, 
I am still on my Rogue Trader Adventurers project (although I am struggling with the temptation to get back to my Chaos Beastmen and the latest miniatures I have completed is a lovely trio Bandit, Tech-Priest Schlan and Psyker from the RT601 - Adventurers range published in White Dwarf 99 back in March 1988.

First we have Bandit in my mind he is none other than George Peppard in Battle Beyond the Stars, the space cowboy in this much watch Stars Wars clone, every time it is on I watch and love this movie with my childhood eyes. I have painted this miniature several times over the years but this time I thought I would have a go at a glow effect on his Eldar Lasgun, I still haven't got the technique down yet but I'll keep trying.

Second up we have Tech-Priest Schlan of the Adeptus Mechanicus who sports a staff adorned with a imperial wing symbol from way before the current cog and skull emblem, I didn't really enjoy painting this miniature as there was lots of swallow details which even the thinnest of paint seem to obscure.

Lastly we have Psyker, another rare Rogue Trader female sculpt in a great dynamic pose, she wouldn't be out of place in Inquisitor Eisenhorn's retinue, banishing Daemonhosts or maybe as a Pariah.

hope you enjoyed this post, please get following all you lurkers :D

Two more Adventurers on the paint station, stay tuned.
