Painting wise this week I've very much been in a Post Apocalyptic mood again. Perusing various Lead Adventure Forum posts about Fallout and other things of that flavour I felt I need to paint up a Vault Dweller. The Model Is Ekaterina by Hasslefree miniatures. I originally picked this up for another project then changed my mind. Cracking sculpt paint in standard vault colours packing some pistols and some leather armour :)
I am thinking of creating a Fallout themed gang for Across the Dead Earth there will be no power armour or laser/plasma weapons just a nod to some of the games.
But I also ended up having a play with some plastic kits and assembled 6 Ghouls :) made from the Male Wargames Factory Surivors and WW2 Us Infantry sprues. Heads are Mantic zombies I had spare and the smalled Ghoul has a Male WGF Zombie head. They need the bases doing and some of the necks need filling a littl as the Mantic heads and bodies lack necks. Round bits of sprue were attached in place to get the positions.
All this Fallout flavoursomeness has had me looking into what sort of rulesets there are that can accommodate homages to Fallout one thats caught my eye is This Is not A Test click the name to view there site. Heres a bit about the game from there website
"This Is Not a Test, or TNT for short, is a skirmish warband game set after the nuclear apocalypse. Using these rules players choose a faction, such as tribals, raiders, mutants, etc., and fight other warbands, gaining power, equipment, and prestige through each victory and defeat. Each battle is hard won though as players not only have to deal with their opponents, but also the challenges of the wasteland, through hazards and radioactive monstrosities."
They also have there own miniatures some awesome multi part Peace Keepers, Funky looking armed mutants as well as suitably enlarged critters such as large snakes, rats and roaches! I also love Gas Mask Girl such an awesome mini!
