New additions to the Wastelands.

Hello and Welcome Back to my blog.

Finally I have got some miniatures finished. Hopefully my groove is coming back.

Out on the Western edge of the ruins of Matt Black City Vault 22 has opened. The dwellers have chosen to remain in the vault but now send scouting parties out in the ruins of the mega city looking for anything the vault can use.

Meanwhile on the other side of the ruins a Technomancer goes to work in his workshop in Wastetopia. Found any old tech you need to trade or fix then this is the guy for you. He is a bit stingy on trades though.

Wanderers are common in the in post apocalyptic wastelands of Matt Black God's world. Many are insane or running from their past. This Wanderer, Max suffers from both. Still he is a handy gun to hire and is a skilled driver. This means he is popular with those who need a dirty job doing.


Here is Immortan Trump, the leader of New Sodom City (NSC). Since arriving in the ruins of MBC the Immortan has restarted his war against Liberty City. NSC has started raiding Liberty City supply & trade convoys. He is also raising suspicions about Utiopa's presence in the ruins.

Out in the wastelands don't trust anyone, not even little girls.

This little girl is probably a cannibal. The figure is a OOP Hetzerdog Babylons Burning Ghoul miniature. I was digging through a old box of zombies and found her. She had her base tidied up. 

Thanks for looking. Stay Safe Out There.

Wasteland Wondering -still alive.

Welcome back Wasteland Wanderers, 

Long time, no post. I am still alive and kicking. Mini painting has been going slow and not just because of the cats. We had a raiding run into the Lake District last weekend. 

It is one of the most beautiful parts of the UK and every time I visit it blows me away. 

My paint queue has been growing exponentially with various kickstarters dropping goodies on my door mat. Then I got some Blots Industrial walls for the Nu Necromunda boards. 70 of them.What have I done? *sob* As they are not too gothic looking they will also be useful for post apocalyptic games as walls and what have you. 

I have gotten a few figures painted. Some Vault Dwellers and characters for the wastelands. They are just waiting for me to finish the bases. Pictures will follow as soon as I get them finished. The Nu Necromuda Eshers are primed ready for paint. 

The Goliaths have gone in another direction. These guys are huge and remind me of the various bosses you come across in the Mad Max video game. 

So my twisted mind started off developing a post apocalyptic feudal army with each of the Goilaths as a Warlord with his own turf, serving under a Overlord. As such I am doing some Post Apocalyptic conversions on them. Each warlord will have a themed gang of warriors too. At least that is the plan until I get distracted.

As for the Overlord, I wanted something even more intimidating looking than a Nu Necromuda Goliath. I started converting a plastic GW Ogre but I wasn't too happy with how it looked. The pose on the figure is limited plus the muscle is more like an old school wrestler rather than a iron pumping chemed up meat head. For now I am looking at converting a Heresy Boris figure for the Overlord.

I have been looking at the Nu Necromuda Orlocks that GW has just released. They have a certain post apocalyptic warrior look. I am thinking of using them as road guards for merchant convoys crossing the wastelands. 

The Ten figures have arrived from Hysterical Games, so as soon as I get organised I will set up a sales thread over on the Post Apocalyptic Wargames Forum. Watch this space.

My Bunker/Star/Space Bastards are nearly assembled. Just some odds and ends to do before I get them painted. No idea what colours I should choose. I like rust. Does old power armour rust?  There is a request the vehicle for the gang. Something open topped. I believe last year's Bring Your Own Lead Helsreach table/game had some issues with gangs riding around in tanks. If I don't get time to build one I am sure my collection will have something suitable for my force. 

Not too sure on how the painting will progress. My good Lady is off for to hospital tomorrow for a operation, so I may have a busy week or two. 

Thanks for reading.

Take Care out there.

New terrain for the Wastelands.

Hello and Welcome back,

January saw me slowly crawling forward working on various terrain items including the Nu Necromunda stuff. Finally I have gotten around to finishing it and getting pictures.  

First up a block house. It could be a home or part of a defensive line.

The block house is a resin model from Ramshackle Games.

My wife got me these resin barricades for Xmas. There was no manufacturer on the packaging. 

They are a little more Sci Fi than my PA stuff but forces like Utopia could field them. They where relatively easy to paint. A blast with black primer and a dusting of white primer. It was just picking out the details. 

Now some Nu Necromunda walls and doors....

These could be easily used in the wastelands. I have been playing Mad Max and there is a lot of rusting ships bulkheads in the wastelands.

Door barricades. All these could be used in the wastelands.  

Ammo and weapon crates. The lids are not glued on and they are double sided. Some have frag, gas and plasma traps in them.
Some data screens and a shrine. 
Finally something nasty lurks in the tunnels. Handy mutant beasty for the wastes as well as Necromunda. I went for a maggot colour. I figured that something that lurks in the dark would probably be pale in colour. 

That's all for now. Thanks for looking and stay safe out there.
