Wow that swamp board has delicious details, you have paid so much attention to it, :-* and it shows!!

I was really impressed by knights of dice at MOAB, I very nearly picked up some, I think I will some of those ac units

I'll be looking forward to how this progresses.

Cheers
Matt

Thanks for the swamp pictures, very inspiring.  My one challenge is that everything will have to be movable on bases, so no actual sunken areas.  I think I can pull it off, it just prevents the deep water resin that makes your table pop!

Fantastic boards! The devil is in the details and these are superb because you are aware of that. Can't wait to see more!

Made a lil progress on the board. Basic colour layed down and I got a bit excited about the toxic pools so I went and did the now lol. I also picked up some in scale caravans for my Girlfriends caravaners and we packed them big piles of goods on top and post-apoc bits and pieces. I'll chuck some pics up later tonight.

Finished off and primed some literal caravans for my girlfriends caravaners, as well as a nice wasteland ride (not very fallout-ey, but I figure this project could use a healthy mix of mad max in there too)

















Girlfriend worked up this version, not bad for her first ever model!

Would love to see some pics of the building out in the wild if you have any!

Unfortunately the lighting in my mate's shed is awful - so no pics.

Those caravans are amazing, loving all the crap on top. Are they going to be pulled by something other than a car?

They're the K-Mart one's right, that come with a car?

Thought they looked a little large in the shop, but you have proved me wrong.

The car is ace too!  :-*

They are the Kmart ones, scale really nicely I think.

There is a piece of artwork in the TnT rulebook that has a large elk or moose pulling a cart, I think I'll try to find a suitabe toy to use as a mutant beast

I found them lying around at K-Mart here in Melbourne:

The car that it comes with is too small but the caravans are about right

Started colouring in.  Tried the salt technique for the first time on the car. It looks okay i guess. I want to use it on the caravans too anyone have any tips on getting the best results?

I *think* the car is done.  Might want more weathering on the bottom

 :o very cool!  8)

No way is that caravan 1:64 as advertised.. funny the discovery it comes with is. ??? ???

What heavy laden caravans, keep her on the road and off the dunes mate, wouldn't want them getting bogged. I'd wager you may need some spare log axles (Bush mechanics style) for when those snap under the weight ;) )

The camaro came out a treat. 1:43 model car? I'd put more dirt on the back/wheel arches and in some crevases where it's settled from dust clouds while driving.

My rust painting technicue is to paint the faded colour first, get that perfect then add snakebite leather washes, and then neat beastial Brown stippling inside those areas then stipple 50black 50 beastial Brown.

For the caravans will you do the salt method again? With off white? Perhaps some colour stripes to differentiate them?

Cheers
Matt

The camero was billed as 1:32 also but it looks only slighty larger than 1:43 to me. Whatever it works haha. Yeah the caravans are going to be off white with turquoise sections. As for the axels, a psychic did it  :D
