Wasteland Raiders and Mutant.

With having the 7TV Apocalypse Kickstarter arriving and the Burrows and Badgers ones I felt I needed to tackle some of the backlog before adding even more to the paint queue. So feeling all Apocalyptic after having my kickstarter arrive I had a rummage and found a bunch of Raiders that had been started (mostly just a bit of flesh or trousers done) and dug out my Mutant Brute (I had this from when Westfalia owned the figure but it now belongs to Crooked Dice) who was just sitting primed.

I got the first three were finished earlier in the week hence a different background on those  in the pics below these had the most work done so were quicker to finish off. I had noticed my phone was struggling to focus without a closer background so I have experimented a bit with the backgrounds. I think I need to get some sort of nice backdrop but not sure what to get or how to go about it.


 These are all EM4/Moonraker miniatures with the first one being a conversion of the Savage with flamethrower. I think the head is from a metal Chaos Marine set and I got him second hand and he came with it. Rather than have a second flame thrower I went with converting it into a pneumatic speargun or something but it could also pass for a cutting tool I suppose. I made the spears from flattening and filing some paper clips into shape. I used some left over putty to make a crude pouch.



The Flamethrower guy is the original of the one above untouched again from EM4/Moonraker. The guy on the right was a gift from my good friend Tony Yates and was a giveaway figure from a BOYL event at Wargames Foundry and he very kindly sent it me to go with my raiders. So big thanks to him its a very lovely miniatures and fits in perfectly.



 My Mutant Brute (resin) and the final figure from the Wasteland Kickstarter that Westfalia ran a few years back. Crooked Dice now own the range and he will be up for release on their webite as Karl gets around to adding all the kickstarter items to the store. 



All my Raiders/Savages together a mixture of EM4, Moonraker, Crooked Dice, Foundry, Prince August, Hyacinth Games and Brother Vinni.

  16. Not sure that Mo hawks are practical in a post apoc setting but you make them work for you. All the figures look good and they all look like they belong together!
