Vuvalini Fighter Raging Annie

Painting at the moment is all a bit random. I am mainly painting what I feel like doing at the moment so prepare for some randomness in the next few posts. Anyway another figure has been finished my ongoing Post Apocalypse collection and this one joins my Vuvalini or Many Mothers warband. I love Kev Whites sculpt and own many that he sells through his own business Hasslefree miniatures but I also love picking up the sculpts he does elsewhere for other people.

This is one of those miniatures sculpted for another range. Raging Annie is from Bad Squiddo Games and is a sculpture of the owner Annie geared up war fighting alongside her Ghosts of Gaia miniature range. The Ghosts though very nice are to sci fi looking for my tastes though I am tempted by a couple that I could convert perhaps. Raging Annie has more modern day looking equipment so fit in well with a lot Crooked and Hasslefree miniatures.

I love the little Squiddo backpack she carries. I painted it like the one on her website. I quite like the idea that really it is a sentient mutant or some such that warns her of danger. Protect her from being attacked from behind.

Armed with an Assault rifle, a machete and carrying a largish looking  hand gun she armed pretty well and has armour and lots of padded armour to protect her in the wasteland.







The band of fighters is growing nicely I have two more to add at some point but they are at the basing 'stage' in my prep amongst some other figures

  4. Lovely addition, Simon, you seem to be really enthused with both this genre and your painting, and its great to see. I hadn’t noticed the Bad Squiddo backpack before - lovely addition to a really eye-catching mini.

  7. Lovely job on "Annie" Simon, and the Vuvalini warband is looking superb!
    Your choice of minis followed by your brushwork has created a Band Of Sisters that might have been made for each other :-)

  8. What a great sculpt, very dynamic and done with your usual panache; the splash of colour, hair and skirt, rally makes this model stand out from the crowd.

  12. Brilliant miniature and paintjob Simon. I like the heroic pose on her, reminds me very much of these older 40k miniatures.

  14. So wonderful. I love her! Charming!!

  15. Looks great. It’s an interesting pose in how she’s holding the rifle, not the usual simultaneous shooting and stabbing concept a lot of sculpts go for.
