Will these Wasteland Warriors make their way to a US distributer?

I expect Brigade Games USA will be stocking them.

Any pics of them next to the old Dark Future (or any other 20mm range) out there?

I can do a picture in a couple of hours, when I brought the baby into her bed. IMHO they are a perfect fit...at least the not-Mad Max I already have fits perfectly with DF.

Copplestone Castings 20mm Gaslands vs Dark Future
« Reply #49 on: January 08, 2020, 09:40:35 PM »
As promised, here is a couple of rather poorly lit shots comparing GW‘s legendary (and insanely good!) Dark Future line, done by the Perrys iIrc, in comparison to the not-Mad Max of the amazing Mr. Copplestone.

A perfect match imho. I can’t wait for Mark to make more models and for Nick to release them!

Copplestone Castings 20mm Gaslands vs. other 20mm

And to make things even better...they do work with other producers, too.

Here is the Roadwarrior compared to an Elhiem model and a painted plastic army men soldier I still had from my childhood.

Copplestone Castings 20mm Gaslands vs. 1/72 plastics
« Reply #51 on: January 08, 2020, 09:44:49 PM »
Last but not least, the Copplestone ex-cop in comparison to 1/72 plastics. Here the very useful not-Stalker set from iirc Dark Alliance.

The release of this series is the best thing since Mr. Copplestone started his 15mm Barbarians!

Thanks for these comparison photos. I agree, the venerable 30+ year old Dark Future line is still the gold standard at this scale. But I’m excited to collect these new sets from copplestone. I’ve long wanted to get some of his models and this scale and setting is my current jam. It’s awesome to see the two lines mesh perfectly.

Not only you...
I have some spares, which I’ll sell soon here over the forum, since I’ll never manage to paint them all, now that we have a third family member.

My advice: look for „lots“ „Konvolute“ and so on as they usually are too expensive when sold as a single.

I’m looking for a few of the Dark Future hooded cultists. See the following post:

So let me know if you have some for sale.

Quick note - just received my wasteland warriors and the scale is absolutely perfect. They’re a touch shorter than the mad max hero chap, which puts them perfectly in line with the Dark Future range. Top work.

Plans for any more Nick?

Yes, Mr Copplestone is working on them now. I'm 'hoping' for:
Highway Patrol
Punks
Hill Billies
City Slickers.

Here's Kev's work on the Wasteland Warriors

Well that’s very exciting!

Those look fantastic. I really like 20mm as a scale.
