The truly frightening part is about 3 years ago I went on a three month binge ordering nothing but parts lots of plasticville buildings of ebay.  After about 3 months, I had spent about $150, and ended up with 27 different 'complete' buildings, and a big bag of leftovers.  I had to mix and match some of them, but so what?

And I have only painted maybe 6-7 of them.  I still have another cafe, several rail-related building, a park pond...all sorts of stuff.  And I had forgotten they were in the garage until I was looking for a building for this project.

And with the 4th being a day off, we spent the morning doing yard work and the afternoon doing, well, this.

Here are some tables and chairs, mounted on clear basing, so I can use them anywhere.



I felt Mick's needed a Mick, and here he is.

With his trained crow (or is it a raven), he runs the place.  He claims his name is actually Nick, but the painter screwed up.



His wife insists he was the one who painted it, and he just can't spell in American runes.



They have two daughters, a redhead and a raven.





Family photo!



I also painted some little beasties, that I am going to claim are reborn genetically modified t-rexes, because, why not?  And Mick can send them after you with a wave of his hand.




And because I have an idea for a game lurking inside my skull, I also went looking for captive models for the group.  I found the two girls, and not been successful for the parents yet.

So I have a couple of resin truck a friend gave me, that were his "test casts", and I just cut the back off one and made me another brahmin wagon.






I think with the amount of 'merchanty' terrain I have, a few wagons would be good scatter, both empty and full.

Brilliant stuff. Liking Mick (or is it Nick?) and his family. Great brahmin wagon too, nothing says fallout like a brahmin caravan.

What a plethora of inventiveness!!!  :o I have just come back to the forum after a long time away from the hobby and seeing this. Absolutely fantastically and creatively executed ideas, I wish I had a morsel of your eye for detail.

Keep up the good job  :)

Why, thank you sir.  I am just trying to keep up with clanmac, Anpu, and DELTADOG.  They keep putting out stuff I wish I had thought of, so I have to keep trying to come up with new and cooler stuff too.

 :D lol

I have gone through some of your older posts to get some inspiration for my own upcoming Fallout Wasteland Warfare project. Much has been found, especially loved your little batrep with the Supermutants, the Ghouls, Talon Company and the Villagers :). Ghouls have always been my favourites in the game  :D.

I do love me some Fallout - I am somewhat of a creeper for Fallout related materials.  I have even been known to craft my own cooking recipes based off the game's description of the food item.

I think we all inspire each other. :)

You're probably right, but isn't that grand?  I will get back to some more post-apoc stuff as soon as I finish painting the mighty Nagash.
