Something New

It's "Talk Like a Pirate Day"! My secret pirate is done and emailed off to Exodus Road so in 1 week maybe I will win me some BOOTY!

Imperial Hot Water Heater Repairman

I'm starting one of the minis received from tidoco2222 in the Mini Exchange. I'm not sure what exactly he's supposed to be, or what that huge thing he's carrying really is. So he's now a member of the Adeptus Thermaquaticus, cyborg monks responsible for maintaining the hot water heaters in Imperial buildings and spacecraft. An important duty, as a Space Marine who has had a cold shower in the morning is a dangerous creature.

(This is a resin mini, converted a little by me. Green bits are putty, and the protruding "faucet" is a bent plastic rod)

Received from Tidoco2222 for Miniature Exchange #9:

Confrontation "Metatron" and GW "Dark Elf of some sort".

GW "power-armoured Orc" and Scibor Miniatures' "robed cyborg".

I'll probably paint the cyborg guy first, he looks intriguing. Personal issues have stalled my painting lately but my Mystery Pirate is about 2/3 done...
