Finished... finally

After a long hiatus from posting, or indeed painting much at all:

Imperial Hot Water Heater Repairman
(Adeptus Thermaquaticus)

Well he's finally done (and just in time, a new mini exchange is underway!) I'm pleased with how this guy turned out, even if my output rate was terrible. He's very grungy, corroded and downtrodden, which is exactly how I imagined him.

Mini Exchange 10!

Sent to "toxc" in Germany:

1. Reaper “Anhurian Cavalryman” (regifted...)
2. Morgan Keith Studios' “Tallah the Warmaid”.
3. Mega Miniatures' Vampire and Priest.
4. Eureka Miniatures' “Stargate Warrior" (not shown, now really rare due to licensing issues, namely not being licensed at all!)

Received from "treide" in Arizona:


Jabba the Hutt (late-80's-vintage rare), Boba Fett (also rare) and an old "Aliens" mini of "colonist attacked by facehugger" (again, rare). Also a yummy-looking bottle of jalapeno jelly and postcards from AZ! I think I will start the painting with Fett, he's just too cool.


  1. Man those SW minis are awesome. The rusty pipeing on that repairman is pretty nice too. I can just imagine how he lost his arm. One of those horrible days for the brethren when the emperor wanted to take a long hot bath with his numerous slave girls and the water heaters just refused to work. I can see this dedicated servant rushing into the boiler room heedless of the scalding steam and ripperjacks to valiantly open a crusted valve and tighten a leaky joint.

  2. Finally !! I like a lot how white and purple work in this figure, specially giving it a touch of Catolic Church feel.

    Nice beuties from the mini xchange, specially for the stargate (OOP due to IP issues) and the leading edge one (OOP just cause is way too old :)

    Just in case u are accepting requests, start with Pizza the Hutt (I'd love to see your color choices for his skin) and then go for the star gay fellas.


  3. Great Work Allison, he definitely has a royal slave image to him. The metal grating base goes well with all the silver piping on his back - very industrial feeling.
