Nice idea and use of E4m/Copplestone minis. The beauty of those older casts is that they hold up against the more modern sculpts and are dirt cheap.

Looking at the pics again there's a Humvee and another armoured car with a roof mounted weapons system, can you remember where you got the latter from?

Cheers

I think in the UK they were sold by Maisto, they used to be sold in the WWelcome break service stations for £3 a pop also nice diecast humvees

Floral foam does seem a bit strange. I used it as flock back in my beginner days, rasped up it made quite effective greenery.

Here in the states, we can get it in sheets. It deosn't want to shed and crumble like the blocks. I have not found anything else that it could be. and when you break it, the cell structure and color looks and feels like floral foam.

Its exceptionally light as well. I really like how easily it takes deconstruction, bullet holes, etc.

Mine are then mounted on 1/8" MDF for rigidity once I start laying on the plaster and detailing.

It could just as easily be done with foam core, gator board, blue/pink foam, or even mdf or cork.

I finished another dozen scavengers last night. I will take a bunch of pics over the weekend and get them up. Count is about 40+ scavengers now. I will probably make a couple of technicals from some Ork Wartruks I have laying around.

Some new stuff. Some of this is more in line with Fallout and Gamma World, but it still fits.

First up is a Forester Automaton. Of course its programming has failed and now its a big problem.




And patrolling that abandoned installation or cache of goods, The Violator class Protector Bot. And of course his programming is messed up as well...




And, as promised, a few shots of the back of one of the buildings with newly finished scavengers patrolling the heap.





Again, the interiors are left pretty stark to ease figure placement, and to allow cache tokens and rubble to be added per scenario. And its just easier to move the figs this way. It is for gaming after all. Enjoy.

That Forester robot thing is wonderful.  I love the bowed-forward pose.

All of thanks guys. I love the Copplestone stuff. Ths stuff and most of my other posts on this board are all apart of my Post Apoc project.

The forestry robot is one of my favorite things. Its a random event, and if it is drawn from the deck, we roll the GW scatter dice to determine distance and direction. Because of its ratted out AI, it still wanders the wastelands felling, well anything that is vertical and could be a tree. It has long since lost its accessory loading truck, but no matter, it will grasp and then cut down with its lasers anything that is vertical. Sign posts, street lights, trees, players. Its deadly. And fun.

Some really nicely done miniatures. I keep meaning to pickup some of the Copplestone Scavengers they would make Zombie survivors/hunters

Styx,

I am using our own rules. They are a mod of Jaye Wiley's Fistful of Lead rules for Western Gunfights. The rules are called Fistful of Lead: Wasteland Warriors. We are going to self publish in the next 6-months to year.

Here is a thorough write up I did on the blog last week: http://leadaddict.blogspot.com/2012/09/fistful-of-lead-wasteland-warriors.html

Simple, fun.
