Wickid kool man. Loving him.
What did you do with the item you cut out of his right hand?

Grimm

Oh, the bundle of logs went in the bits box.

Ooh, lovely! Do the lights pulse, or are they at the same brightness all the time? They're amazing either way.

Solid - no pulse.  Unfortunately, they seem to draw enough power from a nine volt, that it overheats in about an hour.   :?

It feels good  to slap a little paint on post-apo stuff - it will always be one of the 2 constants in my minis gaming: Pirates & post-apoc.

:o It's not supposed to do that, I'm guessing?

No, in theory, a nine volt should power them for about 20 hours.  I suspect I may have caused a short when I buried them in liquid resin.  (shrug) Oh well.

Awesome scenery and minis, there must be some major time put into making all that lot. Brilliant idea on the glowing waste pit! 'Boy' looks amazing too, his expression is perfect for a dogsbody to a survivor.

Well, I have been doing Fallout inspired conversions and paintjobs since 2010 with Fallout 3, so, yeah...

Awesome thread. Love the glow in the dark pool.

That Pack Mutant is awesome.  I also like the use of the Satuesque mini as Vaulties as well. Great idea!

Thanks.  I am in the middle of finishing some medievals and WW2 Italians, some Batman minatures, and then I will be back to my lovely post-apoc!

Holy....well, it isn't as long as it looks, because I accidentally added my last update to my second thread.

So, as I am also on another fine post-apoc forum, they head gentleman there runs what he calls the Warlord's Challenge, wherein we have a theme and we drop a build into it, showing off what we did, and hopefully provoking others to get creative.

2018 is the year of the comestibles/beverages vendor, and I decided to go for a Fallout-styled booze vendor.  We started with:



And after some rum inspired research, started a still.



And then we added the rest of the still inside, with a nice place to sit.



Gave it a place to do business - decided he would block up the door and leave the broken window for access.




And then added lockers, sacks of grain, and a bed to the inside.



And then started adding little bits of flair.




And then started adding color to it.





And this became what my lovely wife refers to as my "infamous one day builds", as I have a tendency to follow an idea until it is done, come hell or high water.






And now we have a booze vendor.  Now to go paint up Mick.  And I think I will trim the translucent base back a bit.

Lovely work as always! I love how many extra gubbins you put into everything, it really makes it feel lived in.

Thanks - I don't put in as many as some people ( we're looking at you, clanmac, quit trying to duck), but I like to have some interest.

I can definitely put down a full sized town now, with one hell of a bazaar.  I keep trying to justify how a town would have that much going on, and the only thing I can come up with is either clean water sources or majorly protected farmlands/pastures/etc.
