2014 - a review.

I have seen this idea on a couple of blogs and I thought I would shamelessly steal it. Hey I am a wastelander....don't leave things for me to loot!! 

So what did I achieve in 2014? First thing to note is that all my 2013 gaming and modelling plans fell apart when Post Apoc Santa left me lots of new wargaming toys to play with. 

I will have a look at the highlights as it will take too long to post all the pictures from the last 12 months. However this post will still be quite picture heavy but relax, open a Rad Beer and enjoy the eye candy. 

I started looking for a Warlord for the Wasteocrates (Republic of Dan) Vs Great Lakes setting. I decided on this guy. 
I also knocked together some random guys for the Wasteocrates
Brummie know as Bummie in various places on the web. 

Then there was the Great Lakes military

I got a couple of Dreadball teams painted. I have not had a chance to play it yet. 

I would like more Dreadball teams one day but it's wiser to hang fire until I have actually played the game. 

Then there was my salute to the Red Dwarf Crew. 

There was also some new Flora & Fauna for my Wastelands...

A horrific new cult rampaged across the Wastelands - The Cult of the Mattblackgod

The Mags of Utopia City got a new Grav Tank...

My mate Jay made me a gang - The Souljackers Crew

Then there was the 15mm Sci Fi for my Wild Galaxy setting. 

Then there was the gangs of modern Post Apoc Liverpool that features in my After the End setting. Many of these gangs where recycled from my collection. I did paint a few new figures: 

I also got some terrain built too. 

In short it has been quite a productive year. It is shocking to look back over the last 12 months and to realize just how much I have managed to get done. On top of this I have learnt a lot and sharpened some of my skills. 

So what's in line for 2015? 

My Squat and Vermen forces will be getting some reinforcements. I got some Space Wolves for Xmas so I will be adding them to the Frozen Wastes as a Bunker type force.Speaking of the frozen wastes I will be attempting to make some snow boards. The Urban boards will be getting a make over too. I am not happy with the road markings I put on them.

I got a deadzone terrain set for xmas too so I plan some Necromunda type terrain. 

On Mattblackgod's world there will be a new mutant town I want to make. I will put it on the edge of Rosstralia, the continent where Utopia city is based. It may also be fun to make a gang of explorers who go out into the Wastes from Utopia to travel around the world getting into trouble. 

15mm is also another project. I have got the Hammers Slammers starter so I will be using  those cool models for the Wild Galaxy Blue Devils Mercenary force. There is another force for another colony type space nation to build too. Plus there is a few 15mm critters from to paint. I blagged a cheap Dinky Space 1999 Eagle which I plan to repaint. 

Over in the Liverpool wastes I have some Cultists and New Albion figures to strip and repaint. 

On top of this there is a couple of 1/24 scale cars I have which I plan to post apoc up just for fun. 

So another busy year next year. Oh yeah I should get some more games in too. I think I had 5 games all year in 2014. 


  1. Great work, loads of output, well done. Year reviews are great things, you cant argue with the data :)

  2. Great work but I have to shed a tear for that 222
