So yeah, I might be bad at sticking to purely PA models here...



This is The Storyteller. Some say he's a genius, some say he's the guy who runs that shop that everyone's geiger counter is in...



The truth is, he's just a wonderer who shares his skills in exchange for stories. Or caps.



The model is GW's eldar warlock with witch blade. Between you and me, I just wanted to paint something with a big heck-off sword. The fact I found it in a small shop near work was just icing on the cake. It's not super overloaded with details, but there's plenty of bits and bobs that kept me entertained without feeling overwhelmed. As an added bonus, the model has a nice heft to it.

Cheers! It's been a while since I had something to post here, but I appreciate your words.



Looks like something's shimmering on the horizon - aliens!



With humanity on the back foot after...well, all of this, this intrepid band have come to see how to take advantage of the situation.



Despite their intelligence, I'm not sure even they could make much use of what's left.



Okay, they're heading off. Maybe they're going to leave us alone?



...dang it.



Looks like the aliens came backing some heavy artillery!



Well you can't blame them for being ill-prepared!



The weapon doesn't seem to have done much good for the local plant life.

The aliens come from Slave2Gaming. There were a few hiccups along the way, but nothing I couldn't handle. Overall, they were pretty fun to paint.

OOh Pete, those winged Eldar are amazing the colours and gems are spectacular! They look very equipped to the task.

I better avoid the field completely if they play!

Cheers! I try, but credit goes to the sculptors as well. I just put pretty colours on 'em.

Given how long I've been wanting to paint 'em, you'd better believe I went hard on the paint.

Speaking of going hard...



This is Rob the Ripper, the meanest, bloodiest merc in the wastes...by his own definition.



Some people call him Bobby the Barbarian...



...they don't do that (or anything else that requires breathing) for long after calling him that, though.



Rob, as you might have guessed, is a 40k Jackhal. A pretty fun model to paint, although the skull was a pain in the buns to paint, what with those chains and all. I painted him up as part of a 28 min speed-painting contest. Here's what he looked like before:





I didn't quite win, but I think I did a decent job, considering the time limit and having way more paints available to me than I usually have. It was a great chance to try out dark skin again. More practice is needed, obviously, but I think I'm getting better.

All those latest figures look suitably dangerous.  Well done!

Cheers! The wastelands are a pretty dangerous place, so its inhabitants should be equally so!



Speaking of dangerous, it's a ruddy deathclaw!



At least it's going away...



Yeah, it's definitely going away...

[/url]

OR IS IT?

As you might have guessed, it's a deathclaw. This one in particular comes from the Fallout Wasteland Warfare board game. I do have one other post-apocalyptic project to tackle before I handle the survivors and such, but for a quick basecoat, wash and a couple of drybrushes, it came out alright. I probably put more time into the base itself (which is quite nicely detailed) than the deathclaw itself. Overall, I reckon it came out pretty well.

A ruddy death claw?! Caw blimey, I might stay inside.  :o

But my survivors are hungry, perhaps we can eat it?

He's just coming up for a really intense hug, that's all!

Deathclaws do have a lot of meat on 'em, just sayin'...

Know who else has a lot of meat on him?



Rev's Raiders! The best scavengers in Silverton.



Along with his lieutentants, Ollie and Ahab, Rev seeks out cashes of loot to make Silverton a slightly less rubbish place to live.



With that many eyes in the gang, they tend to find something useful.



Well, when they don't get lost in the scrap fields, that is.

Gotta be kitted up to go against your lot, they do!

And speaking of being kitted up...



I've finally started on the Fallout: Wasteland Warfare minis!



Overall, not a bad little crew.



Now that I've got the survivors done...



I can finally start trying out the rules! Still got a couple of other crews to do after these, but they can wait.

Nice paint on there pete, gives them a little more depth, they seem to be a little 2dimemsional than ideal, but.. they have the fallout look exactly so all is forgiven.

Power armour looks perfect! They came out great.

Cheers! I did my best with what I had...granted, my best didn't include the eyes, but they do look pretty.



These guys? Not so much.



Hey, it can't be a Fallout game without some super mutants now, can it?



They look better in person, but that's not saying much.



Oh no, are they coming back?

As above, the models are from Fallout: Wasteland Warfare. The super mutant with the hammer was a pain in the apiary (needed to use some extra support to make his hammer not bendy) but they turned out okay. The hounds turned out better than expected and the bushes do seem to help a bit, so that's nice.
