Wasteland Wondering - moving forward.

Hello and welcome back to another Wasteland Wondering.

So after the Photobucket ransom demands debacle I decided that either copying html codes from images I will upload to blogger or to use to post images to forums. Thank you for your suggestions for alternative sites and ways to get around the problem. 

As I had downloaded 4000 images of hobby related stuff from Photobucket  (a few lost in time now as various computers died, so it is good to have them back) it is highly unlikely I will get to fix all my older blog and forum posts. It would simply take too long and in some cases the context of the picture can be lost. As for Photobucket, they can take a run and jump. Strangely the 3gb of images photobucket claim I had seems to be just over 500mb on my computer. 

Some of you have asked about maps of Mattblackgod's world. So here you go.

This map is for 28mm stuff. My 15mm figures are in a new setting and the world map will grow with time. Drop City has a local map but it is WIP. It will follow....One day....promise....honest. 

Now speaking of maps this leads me cleanly to the next hobby direction of Mattblackgod's world located here: 

The planet's captial city.....Matt Black City. A huge ruined mega city hundreds of miles across located in a highly contaminated wasteland known as a Hellzone. Nothing but highly mutated creatures can survive here. But things are changing. Keep watching this blog for the background and minis. I have drafted a few fluff posts and finished some new figures to support this background. There may even be a map. 

One of the things you run into (and away from) in the wastelands of Mattblackgod's world is Trogs. Basically they are my favourite 40K aliens, the Orks written into my world. They where my first army back in the dawning days of 40K and I have never been able to get rid of them. Recently I have been working on more Trogz/Orks and having a lot of fun, in between periods of extreme feline interference from my furry freinds. This seems to be going in two directions. One I am hunting mainly classic RT era Orks to expand the army I have. Two I am creating Gorkamorka style gangs and wasteland characters from more recent Ork models. So expect a few pictures of Orks in the coming weeks. Maybe I should do a blog post series called Funwithorks!

That is all for now. Thanks for reading, take care out there!


  1. Sounds great. Always had a soft spot for those RT era Orks. Have a look at Macrocosm miniatures you might find some useful bits.

  2. hi,i asked for the map few times ago...! thanks a lot!! ew
