40K Adventurers - Ex-Tech - Hive Worlder - Hero - Bandit - Archaeologist

Having got behind on my 40K Adventurers project, I made up for it a bit this month and knocked out four more of the range.

The first group is the three most down-and-out of the set- the Hive Worlder, Hero, and Ex-Tech. All look like they have been through the ringer. I imagine them as stranded spacefarers or perhaps crew that resisted a mutiny and were marooned.

I also painted the 'Bandit' from the Adventurer's range. Followers of the project have probably noticed that the Talisman Timescape range usually has a very close match to a figure from the Adventurers range. To me anyway, the Bandit bears a resemblance to the Archaeologist, so I painted him up at the same time. 'Bandit' on the right.

Seven left!!!

Orktober 2020 Space Ork Renegade

Every year, the community painting project 'Orctober' (Orktober for we 40k players :) ) passes me by. This year I decided to make sure I sneaked one in, and since I no longer have any unpainted vintage orks I went with an oldhammer inspired Ork Renegade from Knightmare Miniatures.

Rogue Trader Inquisitor

The latest entry on my back-and-forth Inquisition project (painting the oldest, then the most recent, working toward the center) is a Rogue Trader era generic Inquisitor. He came in a pack of three. I was not a huge fan of this guy back in the olden days, but he grew on me as I was painting him.

He is pictured in front of some Penitent cages (MDF kits from Kromlech).

Next up, Solomon Lok and retinue from ForgeWorld.

Hydra Miniatures - Azeemah, Imperial Princess - Empire of Marduk

Hydra sent me an advance resin copy of "Azeemah, Imperial Princess" to paint for them a couple of months ago. I've been waiting for them to reveal the miniature so that I could post it. She was fun to paint, lots of little details. 

The Empire of Marduk forces so far:

40k Adventurers - Squat Miner - Engineer - Mole Mortars - Shorty

I'm about two months behind on my 40K Adventurers project, but still chipping away. Up for perusal is the Squat Miner and Engineer from the Adventurers range, along with a couple mole mortars they use for surveying, a ratling security guard ('Shorty', from the Mercenaries range) and a Squat crewman.

I had a hard time coming up with a color scheme for them, which was why it took me so long to get around to committing. I ended up using an old Rogue Trader illustration, along with the box art from the 1970's TV show 'Electric Company'.
