Raider 'Ironbar' and KS package arrives :)

Another Raider finished and off the paint table this week. A Copplestone Grenadier sculpt now sold by EM4. I really can't understand why its took me so long to get hold of some of these figures as they are absolutely bad ass sculpts. I have 7 of the Savages including this one in total to paint up but one is a duplicate which I've converted. I am going to the Barrage show in Stafford on the 12th July and Forlorn Hope will be there and they also carry the line :D so I'll pick up those missing Savages and get the Scavengers and perhaps the bikers.

This Raider obviously has a strong Mad Max vibe to it and is very reminiscent of Iron Bar though not exactly alike. This guy is relatively unmodified all I've done is trimmed down his shotgun into a sawn off making him seem more menacing I feel.




 Love the scars down his cheek looks like a proper rough neck.

 A pick of the three raider types so far. The Outrider with rifle will probably join a different group when I've received my trade package of Wreck-Age figures and there will be more figures of the same type.

His Face is awesome really tricky to get a shot of it.

In other news the bulk of Studio Miniatures Z Clipz Kickstarter package arrived yesterday. Theres a couple of minis being sent on later when there back in stock. (The Bandit and the Celebrity Zombie) 

I'm very pleased there awesome sculpts I've already cleaned up and stuck the 'Hobo' on a base its such a fun model and will get put in with my post apoc figures. Theres some pics of the survivors below and some size pics in case people were wondering about the size of them. I have the zombie versions of most of these as well. I'll do a separate post of these as there are some classics in amongst it. Zomtober is going to be ace this year :)

 Some king of rocket/bomb arrow.
 The Hobo rear he has a spare arrow and plunger :D

 The Lover's (him), The Boss, The Sister, The Brother and The Father.
The Loner, The Biker, The Kid, The Detective, The Leader and The Lover's (Her)

Some size shots Hasslefree, Nexus, Crooked Dice.



The Lover (male)  He's a little taller due to some flash across the bottom of his tab it needs snipping off nothing that won't take to long lol but was excited to take pics yesterday :)
 The Brother he has a hand in a fist to be attached. I have a carbine waiting in my bits box to strap to his back for this guy.
The Sister. Again am going to try and recreate the sniper/assault rifle she carries. Not quite found the right bits yet.

  1. Great posting Simon. Stonkingly good painting on that 'Mad Max' raider and those new arrivals look rather nice too. Clearly you've got a bit of a lead mountain to wade through over the next few weeks ;-)

    2. Why am I not surprised you invested in it as well, Bryan. ;-)

      It certainly looks like it was a cracking KS though - not sure why I missed it. Hopefully both of you will be doing plenty of postings?

  11. Yep, I love those EM-4 "wasteland raider" miniatures as well :-) .

    I had forgotten about this Studio Miniatures KS, though now I'm seeing it pop up in several blogs. It'll be good to see what peopole do with the new figures.

  13. That Raider is very much Mad Max and the shortened gun-barrel really does make him look more "business". Well done.

    1. Thanks Dai. Yeah I agree looks far more menacing with it shortened. Ironically when you look at Iron bar there is not a lot in common.But yet still fits the bill perfectly.

  14. Great job on Iron Bar, Simon. Sawing off the shotgun was the right call.

    I really like the Hobo sculpt.
