Square dealer

Valter the Vendabot
15 mm


A retail droid who surpassed his programming, Valter can be found wheeling and dealing on the streets of Dropfall City.  His sales pitches for everything from children's travel holos to illegal stim packs can be quite persuasive.  In return for the occasional tip, law enforcement fail to inform his former owners of his whereabouts.


One of The Ion Age's monthly freebies from last year.  Paintjob inspired by the 2000 AD/Judge Dredd character "Walter the Wobot" as painted by sho3box.  Paper terrain from World Works Games (and Google image search).

  1. Humorous witty creative and painted very nicely. It's tough to up your sales in a nite time windy cold rain storm on an empty street. Valter has gumption or a lot of bills to pay. Great character, Mr. M.

    1. Thanks. I had a hard time with that and had to redo it quite a bit. I'm still not convinced it's what I wanted, but I'm glad someone else thinks it looks all right :)

  3. Love the whole lot! My perfect cyberpunk terrain setup still eludes me, but your papercraft stuff looks really great. I was disappointed Walter didn't make a cameo in the Dredd 2013 movie.

  4. So much excellence here. Love the vignette. Also top marks for the basing and the 'light on metal' effects on walters 'torso'.

  6. The NMM on the model works really well and the shot on the Worldworks terrain is lovely. The basework is particularly nice.

    Funnily enough I bought a few of that sculpt last year as I figured that it would work well as some sort of vending robot in 28mm too.

    1. Oh it totally would. Maybe not "full size soda machine" size, more like "cigarette machine" size (for those of us who remember cigarette machines...) Glad you like Valter!
