Copplestone Scavengers Part 2


All the Scavengers done to date so far. Unsure about the remaining two. Part of me wants to finish them for completion sake but I don't really need 3 rocket launcher weapons....


The Full set of Scout's Finished


This is another one of my favourites from the set I really like the style of the rifles I think.


Tried to make the helmet appear worn and old. Just did various washes over the basecoat and I think it looks ok.


Tried to go for a denim jacket with this one not so sure it worked tbh. 





My Favourite tank buster I tried to make the bottle part of the molotov look as it was partially full of liquid 


 More group shots for the sake of it :)

No idea what I'm going to start on next. I'm torn with playing with the ruins I received or painting one of my Hasslefree figures. I shall see where the week takes me!

    1. Thanks very much Michael. They are a really useful set. I may get some Terminator vs Resistance games going on at some point with these.

  5. Amazing work, they came out really well.
    As for the other two you have to paint - if you're going to pain them to the same standard, I'm pretty sure everyone would love to see them - rocket launchers or not!

  8. These have come out wonderfully well and mix well with one another, though I'm with you with the "rocket launchers", it looks really out of place in a scout unit.

    1. Thanks Joe, I think they'll get done eventually they're just going to slip down the priority list a bit I think.

  9. Nice.

    Reminds me a little of that tv show "Falling Skies" that's was on free-to-air tv the other month. Nice selection of figures again! And the mixed colours within the unit, as a whole, work really well.

    Top Job!

    1. Thanks mate yes they would. These will be either to fill additional gang slots or be part of a traders entourage or something. Plus of course gangers or other sorts.

  18. Excellent additions. I am not sure, but I think I like the second lot here even more than the first 5. They are all great though and keep up the brilliant work mate. :)

    1. Thanks very much mate. Which 5 though? The previous post?

    2. I love both, but the 5 in this post just edge those in the previous Scavengers post (the March Scavengers post) for me. :)

      They are all great though. :)

      Added to the mid week post there is lot of PA and Survivor goodness there. :)
