Mutants, beasts and scatter - Oh My!

Hello wastelanders, welcome back to my hobby blog,

It has been a couple of weeks since my last hobby update due to a couple of busy week ends. I have been hobbying away in the background. 

Out in the Blasted ruins lies the township of TrashFord. It is controlled by the bandit Max Blubber. With his gang Blubber runs Trashford. Here we have Impedance Jones, one of Max Blubber’s gang. 

The figure is Impetigo Jones from Warlord Games’ 2000AD Strontium Dogs line.

The Blubber gang have sent Brittannia away with a flea in their ear. Luckily the Brittannia’s currently do not have enough man power to take over the Blasted ruins. Blubber’s boys have a ace up their sleeve when the day comes that the Red Coats try their luck with Trashford. They are in possession of a number of high tech plasma rifles looted from an old military bunker within the Blasted Ruins. 

Out in the wastelands there is many hazards. Some of the hazards are vicious mutant animals who see you as a passing meal. 

The Panda is a Bear by Ramshackle Games. I painted it as a Panda due to an idea from the JJ Shurte novel, Days too dark. 


Of course there are other critters out there to the RAD PANDA!

 The Rad Panda is a Bear by Ramshackle Games. I thought I would paint it a little differently. I really enjoyed painting these bears. They are fun to paint.

Many wasteland communities in the wastelands of mattblackgod’s world use bio vats. They contain microbes that convert biological material into plastics, rubber, oil, booze and fuel. These microbes are a standard for many frontier or remote worlds. Here is my take on it.

This vat idea came from some fluff in the Nuclear Renaissance rule book (by Ramshackle Games). I plan to use it as scatter scenery. This was part of a unmarked set of SF barrels and containers my Wife got me last Christmas. I have no idea who the manufacturer is.

The Mayor of Rubbleborg loves his mushroom tea. So it seemed fitting to make a consignment for the table.

I plan to use this as scatter scenery or as a objective. Again this was part of the same unmarked set of SF barrels and containers my Wife got me last Christmas (she is a real keeper). 

So how am I doing for my 100 minis  challenge? The totals so far are 22 painted and 78 to go. Yes I am including the barrels and boxes.

I have the rest of the Strontium Dogs figures to paint, a small pile of Ramshackle bits to work on, three vehicles, some reinforcements for the Warriors and Fatal Floozies gangs  and that is before I start work on the great terrain refresh I am planning. 

That’s all for this week. Thanks for looking. Take care out there.


  1. Don't mess with Impedance Jones, because he looks badass!

  2. I like the signs. They make the terrain look more real. The rad panda is so cute. I want to hug it with a laser gatlin.
