Copplestone Castings Road Warrior

Finished my last member of my cast for Saturday's Post Apocalypse 7TV day. I have several versions of the infamous Road Warrior but I think this one has to be my favourite of them all. Deciding to switch from a single Star to two Co-Stars it made senses to include the Hardy version of Max to go with my Furiousa from Hasslfree miniatures. Lovely model to paint I do love the sculpting style of Copplestone.






All the infantry for my Cast.

I tweaked Angels of Justice Profiles for Max and Furiosa. Swapping some effects for new ones. Spy for Repair on them both. Dodge for Leader 1 on Furiousa and Dodge for Gadget on Max. I switched a point of Spirit for Mind on Max as well

Both lost there pistols for a Self loading rifle and Sawnoff Shotgun as per models.

The 3 armed Vuvalini got Soldier profiles with the close combat armed Vuvalini getting technician profiles.

  7. Damn fine painting, on a corking mini, Simon. I thoroughly enjoyed painting mine and you would seem to have done so too - my fave version of Mad Max :-)

    1. Cheers Simon, I love them all tbh even the Thunderdome version who I may have to have a bash at making at some point thinking about it.

      But yeah this my favourite model of the warrior of the wasteland.

    1. Thanks Terry. Max did particularly well on the day. Unlike poor Furiosa who got brutally gunned down in the first game!

    1. Thank you. I have tried to paint them individually but tie them together with common colours.

  18. Got to love a character who wields a bin lid and an axe. Mark Copplestone's sculpts are excellent :-)
