Are these rules still available? The link on page one no longer works.

Scavenge skirmish survive or Pulp Alley?

Very clever idea to use that set! Painting works well and you have done a lot of stuff.

Well not everyone in the wasteland is a gun-toting adventurer...well, not yet anyway. More stuff is on its way!

Wow those look great. I went straight to buy that set after seeing it here. Luckily for me it was out of stock thus sawing me from myself - for a bit..

Hmm, I'd better not tell you about their 28mm Chaos range then...oh wait, don't read that! Delete! Delete!

That tyre boy and pre-war junk seller are amazing! What a set for Post Apocalyptia!  8)  8)  8)

Grab the nuka-cola, get your pre-war Raybands and watch the atomic sunset.  8)

I wonder how much damage a tire does in SSS?  lol

I actually think your painted skin looks rather good!

Thanks! I'll be trying it out more now that I've got some more browns to play with.

What he said.



What's this? A penguin? With a balloon? In the desert? Yeah, okay.

[/url]

When the zookeepers didn't show up one day, an enterprising penguin tied an errant balloon to himself and succeeded in something that no other penguin had managed-he floated just high enough to leave his enclosure and search for more tasty fish.



What will he find on his quest? Adventure? Glory? Tasty, tasty fish? Only time will tell...



Model was a sample sent out with my order from eureka miniatures. It was fun to paint, except for the part where I dropped it on the floor and nearly went mad reattaching the balloon.

lol - deligtful painting.

I just picked up one myself - he/she is full of character in such a simple miniature.

A tyre could certainly KO in SSS.

A penguin?!? What in Post-Apocalyptia is that?!? It's brilliant is what. Hahaha, I am eager to hear 3 Dawg to sing tales of his adventures across the wastes.

Agreed! I still can't believe I got it for free.

Look! Up in the sky! It's Bhudda! It's Jesus! It's...a gently floating penguin?

Cute.

Is he called Feathers McGraw?

What? No! Absolutely not!

...Well, it wasn't before.



One thing that probably isn't cute in the same way as Feathers up there is this...kid? Kids? Anyway, here's James and Tom. James is the blondie and Tom is the darker haired fellow. They bicker now and again, but they always make up in time. It's not like they can go separate ways, after all.



Brother-James?

What is it now, my deeply-jawed brother?



I'm bored, brother-James. Can we play a game?

Ooh, a game. I like this idea. What one should we play?



How about shoot and scream?

That is an uncharacteristically good idea, brother. Now, where did we leave the ray gun?

Miniature is The Flapper Twins from Eureka Miniatures. They're not bad kids, they just never had anyone to tell them that pointing a loaded and moderately unstable ray gun isn't everyone's idea of a good time. The base was probably from a warhammer mini that I took off. All I know is that it was all cracked and lumpy when I found it in my bits box, which suited the boys perfectly.

One arm's for slappin', one arm's for sassin'  :D



Well, it took me WAY too long to paint these guys. Not because of any particular difficulty, I was just flooded with assignments and life and blah.

Some people might wonder why I paint so many kids for such a seemingly hopeless world as post-apocalypse Australia, but to them I say:

1) Shut up, I'll paint what I want.

2) Why bother risking your neck in an irradiated wasteland if humanity is going to die in a few years?



It would've taken forever to take every shot of every kid (and then upload them) so I've just included a few highlights.



Hailing from a vault whose number has been lost due to poor data management and shoddy vault suit construction, these kids make the most of the hand-me-downs they receive.



Some get more hand-me-downs than others.



That's about it...for now.

Watch out, I think we've been spotted!



This is Tom Cooper, aka Juvie. He's another one of the guys I sort of knew back when City of Heroes was still a thing and by sort of knew, we met one time. Kind unfortunate, since he was one of our group's founders.



As for this particular Juvie, he grew up as part of a bandit gang. Despite never knowing his parents, he knew that banditry wasn't right. One night, he tried to escape, but was captured. In his panic, he reached for a stick, hoping to use it as a weapon. Imagine his surprise when a metal blade flew out of each end!



After dispatching his former comrades (or at least making them run off) Juvie wondered without a sense of purpose. Eventually, he found some teenagers trying to hunt down a mole rat, but they weren't having much luck. With his experience, they soon had a mighty (if slightly bullet riddled) feast.

Realizing that some people didn't have the same 'luck' that he did as a kid, Juvie found an old police station and began setting up The Artful Dodgers, the skeeviest bunch of scavvers, smart-mouths and shooters that the wasteland had ever seen. Also, there's robots.

The model is reaper's Harrix Fireblood. I mistook the hand crossbow on his back for a gun, so he ended up a post-apoc scavver instead of a magic user. About the worst part of the model is the giant lump of metal under the feet - I had to get a new set of bases so that it wouldn't stick over the edge too much!

I'm back with a new model!



This is DX-TR. If he was ever human, there's little evidence of it now. What remains of his skin is grey and tight over his bones and the only time he leaves his bunker is to collect scrap for science.



Even travelling with his lightning spear, there are dangers to be found in the wastes, resulting in a slightly bent spear head.



Some say that he is being stalked by a robot named D33-D33, who constantly interferes with his experiments, but is otherwise harmless. He blames it for his disconnection from other members of the Cult of Mars.



I got this model from Constable Bertrand. I'm not sure where it's from, but I immediately decided it should be a tech priest.

I have so little left, yet I must paint!



This little fella is N1N3, a fully modular service droid.



Buy your N1N3 now, before they walk out the door! Possessing the fine wood paneling, sturdy metal and flexible rubber, putting together your household companion is as simple as can be!



Need a maid? No problem! Someone to help take care of the kids without complaining? No worries! Need someone to keep you company on those lonely nights? Look elsewhere, creep.



In the event of global nuclear war, these fine units will revert to their scavenge-skirmish-survive protocol, guarding you and yours from the rapid deterioration of society. After all, why should you rebuild your neighborhood when you can destroy everyone around you who won't bow to your superiority and foresight! Don't delay, prepare for society's downfall today!

Well, who's this friendly fellow?



It's R4x, outfitted with the finest scavenged armour and cybernetics!



Which parts are armour? Which parts are cybernetics? Who knows? All that matters is he's a good, good boy by wasteland standards.



I got this little fella from Constable Betrand for my birthday. No idea where he's from, but he was pretty fun to paint!

That'll be it from me until moab rolls around...in this thread, at least.
