I've been wanting to start a Fallout project for quite some time and finally decided to take the plunge. I'm a huge fan of the computer game series and am quite excited to see how it transfers to tabletop gaming.

So I ordered a number of old Kryomek Nexus SWAT figures off ebay to create an Enclave Patrol team, however 3 weeks later and they are still not here. :(

Next I ordered Viridian assault marines to be Brotherhood of Steel, but after a two week delay they have only just been posted. :rolleyes:

Step into the breach Troll Forged Miniatures, who incredibly speedily sent me 5 of their Trenchers who will form the basis for my New California Republic patrol force.

This is what I have so far, just a couple of coats of Devlan Mud and Gryphonne Sepia. I am ordering some M16s to go with these guys as their 'service rifles'. I gave up on trying to paint the 2 headed bear on their chestplates, much too difficult! But I really like these guys, the goggles and face wraps are just perfect for NCR.

The attachment is my first attempt at creating Nuka-Cola bottlecaps as loot counters/objectives/random encounters

So what is next for this project? Well I have a giant radscorpion model and Eschers for raiders.

However I plan to put together the following

NCR 1st Recon sniper, NCR Veteran Ranger & NCR Ranger
A conturbernium of Caesar's Legion
Super Mutants
Ghouls
New Vegas Securitrons
Protectrons
Vault Dwellers
Wastelanders

Finally I'm off to the toy shop this weekend to look for an American school bus and plastic cows (for Brahmin conversions)

I hope this plog will be of some interest to other Fallout fans here on Warseer

Nice! I sculpted those things in 2008, this is the first I've seen anyone actually use them for something.

I was pretty inspired by Fallout too, my site has the references for the master sculpts for the mutants if you need to see them.

That would be really cool, I think I'll need to add that to my scenery to-do list.
Speaking of which it didn't get off to a good start this weekend. Could not find an american school bus in any toy or model shop, may need to try online. Also no luck with plastic toy cows! :eek:

Still awaiting many things in the post. The Enclave models I ordered off ebay never showed, neither did a figure I intended for BOS.

But what I did get were Veteran legionaries from Warlord and a para sniper.

So here's my NCR troops (so far) in a group shot

Officer with the flag of the NCR

First Recon marksman with scoped hunting rifle
http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m295/emperorpenguin77/DSC03844.jpg

A conturbernium of Caesar's Legion. Tricky to build these guys, but I've managed to give a few of them SMGs and hunting rifles. The pila are throwing spears. Going to be difficult to paint the Golden Bull on the Vexillarius' standard, I may cheat!

I had intended making the small horns for their helmets ala Fallout 3 but couldn't find my green stuff anywhere.

These guys will be Hellfire troopers/heavy weapons

http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m295/emperorpenguin77/DSC03862.jpg

And lastly every Enclave squad needs an officer in command

Thanks Velsharoon, I look forward to seeing yours too, anything Fallout or Post-Apocalyptic grabs my attention

I'd love to see Fallout minis too, there's a few "Not-Fallout" minis such as the Monobot in this thread I used as a securitron and Khurasan make 15mm Super Mutants/Mirelurks etc

Have you seen this before? http://www.nma-fallout.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=50841&sid=d6a2cb158f1917575aca74aa00a3c706

Thanks deathskullork. I ordered some zombie models yesterday so should have ghouls up next week. I just need a couple of zombie heads to put onto "normal" bodies next so I can do non-feral ghouls too.

Onto my latest efforts.

I'd love to see those guys. I considered both them and Ogryns as options, there are very few models suitable for Super Mutants out there.

I do indeed want to do Brahmin but thanks to Ireland's now extinct Celtic Tiger, the old cheap toy shops are gone replaced by huge stores selling plastic cows which are several sizes too big and as heavy as a metal dreadnought, so no hope of cutting their heads off.
I found one guy's brahmin idea using Pegasus Hobbies plastic cows, so I'll order a box of those soon.

I myself have no greater interest in the west coast.
My first Fallout game was Fallout 3.
And may I say that it's the best of them. The west coast is a bit too civilized for my taste, with laws, taxation and NCR.
I therefore have mostly East Coast based forces, pretty much random raiders, Muties, ghouls and soon BoS :D
I could post a pic of my so far only started mutie, if that would be of any interest?
Cheers, Hrokka.

emperorpenguin
23-06-2011, 21:41
Absolutely! I'd love to see it :)

Fallout 3 was my entry to the series too and my favourite. But the NCR are pretty cool with some great uniforms. Not as keen on Caesar's Legion, which is why I've yet to start them, much prefered the Enclave as a foe.

This is all great stuff. I am going to pick up an ainsty flameblade compound once my Marx cars arrive and get painted. I have decided to buy all my terrain premade as I hate making it and would rather spend the time painting.

After they are painted I will be picking up raiders from a variety of different sources. I am aiming to do the west coast and for NCR I am thinking about pig iron with trench coats and using a dremel on various cowboy models to make them more scifi. That veteran ranger you have is awesome tho.

Its a real pity the Taban thing didnt develop but what can you do.

I definitely want to do Great Khans but I'm finding it hard to find biker models which aren't fat and hirsute :eyebrows:
Powder gangs will come along at some point I'm sure.
Slavers will be covered by the wastelander & merc models I'll be doing. No plans for Point Lookout yet but I have seen some great models suitable for them.
I'm writing up a homebrew set of Fallout rules (based around SPECIAL of course) and factions thus far are BOS, Enclave, NCR, Caesar's legion, Vault Dwellers, Super Mutants, Raiders, Wastelanders, Mercenaries, Mr House

Looks promising, I'd like to see the face. If it requires green stuffing to look like a super mutant then I'll not be able to make it work for myself.

Speaking of which. Received some models today. One is a Mirelurk King/Lakelurk. Got a few figures for a Vault team but had a hell of a time green-stuffing Pipboys. Also greenstuffed horns and a tail onto a deathclaw stand in.
Today's discovery was I completely lack patience and discipline for green-stuff use......(oh and talent of course!) :p

Rubbish picture, even worse paintjob;) The only greenstuffing I've made is two simple straps across the models torso and the fastening of a plasticard shoulderpad.

The heads just a regular ogre head with its mustach cut of - didn't have any beardless faces left.

I'm longing to see raiders, since my is currently very wip, and could need some inspiration.

I'd suggest removing or smashing all windows. Boarding some of them up. Remove the garage and bus doors. And probably dent the vehicle up a fair bit. Remove some roof tiles, some of the shutters of the house (if you can). See if you can't "half collapse" the veranda and Texaco sign.

Then LOTS of Devlan Mud.

Oh and graffiti. With curse words that I count write here. "Hail Ceasar!"; "**** off NCR!"; "No Entry"; "I'm watching you"; that sort of thing.

I hadn't thought of graffitti, nice idea DarthSte! :) It will need to be graffitti suitable for both West and East coast Fallout though, so references to Caesar or NCR wouldn't work. I'll look at the in-game scrawls for inspiration.

I actually tried breaking the bus windows as soon as I got it but they're really tough plastic. I had an idea of using my wife's kitchen blowtorch thingy to burn/melt out the plastic but I'm not sure which side of the genius/moronically stupid line that would be. Probably the latter and I'd burn down my apartment :shifty:

DarthSte
11-07-2011, 23:07
I remember my history teacher making bullet holes in a model jeep by heating a pin with a soldering iron and forcing it through the plastic. It looked good. Just be VERY careful or you'll burn off your finger prints.

If you don't want Legion or NCR graffiti. The Brotherhood seem everywhere. You've got some raiders - easy enough to come up with a gang name. Then there are the generic ones like No Mutants/No Ghouls/No Smoothskins/No Whatever... Danger: Deathclaws/Mirelurks that fantastic Nuclear symbol that I really should know the name of..?

bert n ernie
12-07-2011, 10:11
Something sharp and strong (not a knife). Heavy duty scissors or a thin phillips screwdriver. Then hammer it in. It should work, as I've used it on something similar, but it depends...
Is that plastic/glass all one piece on the inside of the bus, or is it separate pieces?
If it's all one piece this won't work.

Also the log is great.
The brotherhood early on, and the vault dwellers are the best. Where did you get the brotherhood figures?

There's some really great resources in general here already. I've been looking through it for modelling buildings.

12-07-2011, 10:38
It's all one piece but I'll try unscrewing the vehicle to remove it. Should have thought of that sooner :o

The Brotherhood figures are Viridian Assault Marines from Scotia Grendel. They're actually my least favourite as I've only dry-brushed them, I couldn't figure out how to get the colour you see in-game.

Ah that one. The gas stations in Fallout 3 and NV are very different in style, so I'm not copying either! :p I'll just stick with my generic 40's style, change the signs to say Poseidon Energy and dirty it up.

Thanks Joe, yes that thread is my go-to for everything on my Fallout project :)


I made one change to my plans and that is regarding caesar's legion. I wasn't really happy with the scale of the figures, which are noticeably smaller than my others. Plus they do just look like Romans with guns in their hands (which is exactly what they are after all!)
So looking at the imagery again I noted that the major theme in their look was American football helmets and armour. So I ordered a few models from Neomic (human fantasy footballers) and weapon'd them up and they look much better. hopefully will get some initial pics up later.

I'm in the process of changing the Texaco signs on the gas station to say Poseidon Energy. Once that's done I'll dirty it up and scrawl graffitti over it :)

Here's my Caesar's Legion troops so far. I much prefer these guys to the Warlord plastics & guns I tried earlier, plus they are the right size. Bear in mind these guys are not finished but i'm liking how they are turning out.

Good call on the ceasers legion, consider that idea stolen. I have about 25 minis from EM4 and 8 cars in a box, once I have finished with my Force on Force stuff will be getting scenery from EM4 to. Just gonna get it all together before starting on it. You decided on a ruleset?

25mm? Great, thank you!
I for one would appreciate your takeon on Fallout vehicles(brahmin chariots, etc:D), as they're seen in Fallout Tactics, which probably is the most wargame like Fallout game;)

Keep up the Good fight(And make sure to make an armored vault suit for a lone wanderer;))

This looks really great. I've been figuring out a way to use my mountain of misc figures. If you have any requirements for specific figures translating to fallout be sure to head over to the "future-war" section of lead-adventures.com. They have a stickies post on their forums that is dedicated to fallout. Keep up the inspirational work.

Great log, a big thumbs up from me. :yes:

I need to finish my raiders so I can use them in Necromunda... And a Storm Raven looks like it might be convertable into a Vertibird... Then I'd need some Enclave troops to ride in it... Gah! So many project ideas... :cries:

If you are doing a similar plog I'd love to see it! I was thinking of the Heresy and Pardulon scorpions myself but went with the money saving option of raiding my spares, but those are better scorpions no doubt about it

No plans for anything beyond Fallout 3 and New Vegas so far (I've not even finished FO/FO2/FOT yet). I would really like to do an NCR Ghoul soldier/Ranger though

Yes I've played the game and read the book. I've considered how cool a plog and mini-game of that could be. These models would be ideal http://www.lead-adventure.com/index.php?cPath=1

I am loving this plog. Who doesn't love fallout?
Some great miniatures, very well painted.
I especially like the vault-tec billboard, it looks realisticly damaged/set aflame, and isn't over the top.

Hoping to see some more soon. Maybe they'll be a Cain from the brotherhood of steel ps2 game? :D
Was a fairly pants game, compared to the others, but he was awesome.

I'm loathe to paste the same links in 2 threads, but there's a Russian guy called Brother Vinni doing some cool Fallout style sculpts. Can't vouch for the company, though he has a presence on Dakka:

Not-wastelander (http://www.brother-vinni.com/gallery/28mm/m28foll03.htm)

Well I placed an order a few days ago for the Brotherhood of Steel figures (5 of them) which brother-vinni is selling. I also ordered his scribe and ranger models.
So once those guys arrive I'll get them up on here. In the meantime most of my time has gone into my Fallout rules rather than painting.

That said I am awaiting Vallejo flourescent yellow in the post and when it arrives I'll get some Glowing Ones onto the plog :)

Oh and I'm off work for a week from tuesday. It's very hard to paint when I don't get home until 7.30 so with a week off I'll definitely try to kickstart this again! :D

Keep up the great work.

It's very difficult to get the glow effect any brighter. Vallejo paint is very thin and just runs off the highlighting I tried. I guess a better painter than me could do it.
Anyway I tried a different tack, seeing as it is so thin, I figured grayscaling as I do with GW washes might work. Here is the result.

http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m295/emperorpenguin77/DSC04141.jpg

The two on the left and right are the ones you've already seen, with a black wash to pick out detail and highlighted. The one in the middle hasn't had a wash over the flourescent yellow.
Which looks better?


Does he REALLY glow in the dark or is just a really bright paint? :)

Just a bright paint :p I switched off the light just to double check though!

And a few more regular Ghouls

http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m295/emperorpenguin77/DSC04142.jpg

Some more Raiders

http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m295/emperorpenguin77/DSC04146.jpg

More Wastelanders

http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m295/emperorpenguin77/DSC04147.jpg

bert n ernie
06-11-2011, 23:26
Personally if they are supposed to glow then I think you should go for the middle one, as long as the photos are representing how they look in real life fairly accurately.

He looks quite cool, and the paint style being different from the other types of ghouls really suits too.

Great work.

Although the last wastelander on the left looks like he has had a few too many black ink washes. Perhaps it's just the photo. I dunno.

emperorpenguin
06-11-2011, 23:42
Well the flash lit up the Glowing One's face a bit much, but he is quite a stand-out on the tabletop.

The Wastelander on the left? Hmm. I don't think it's too much badab black, I think it's the devlan mud and gryphonne sepia colours. He looks a bit dull and dark, especially with his black skin. Maybe some colour?

bert n ernie
07-11-2011, 09:42
Yeah, I think a dab of colour would be it. Perhaps that little bit of blue on the mini next to him is what is breaking up his colours and making him look great.

They're both very well painted by the way. It has nothing to do with that.

I would definitely go with the central Ghoul if they're all meant to be Glowing Ones. They really are very bright in the game, so there's no harm with having really over the top brightness on the model in my opinion.

I really like that band of Raiders. They look suitably shifty, and the colour choice is spot on.

The regular Ghouls are simply excellent. You've got the skin colours just right for them in my opinion.

Oh! This ROCKS! Fallout is such an awesome universe.

You should do some old-school Fallout 2 NCR Rangers. With the green body armor and brown pants, armed with Bozars. Waaaay back I painted some Cadians in that style (they have since been repainted, though).

Thanks Darth Ste

I was confused by his wrist device at first, wondering if it was a Pipboy. Turns out it's a Displacer Glove. Nice little touch.

I'm much happier with the Paladins now too. I wasn't enamoured with the metallic Void models I'd painted earlier.

I really like the T-45d power armour. There's something about the Brotherhood (not the 1 dimensional goody-two-shoes from F3) that I find pretty cool.

Just a few questions about the power armour model/s:

1) How do they measure up to GW models, particularly marines? Do things like arms seem like a plausible swap?

2) Do the models come in just the one pose, or can you work with the poses? The photo you've displayed suggests the former.

3) If the parts are not compatible with GW bits, and the model is only the one pose, how easy is the material they're made of to work with?

Depending on your answers, I could end up getting a few or a few dozen of these things.

With regards,
Dan.

They measure up nicely to marines. At work now but I'll take a comparison pic later.
The arms could easily be swapped for some variety as, yes, they are one pose.
The models are resin.

Apparently there are conversion bits including new heads, weapons and more coming soon. Another model is due for release before the end of the month followed by a supermutant in December

:) Thanks, Irisado! It's just a light drybrushing of Astronomicon grey over a badab washed white
I wish they had better poses, but considering a few months ago I was bemoaning these figures existing but not being able to buy them, I'm ecstatic! :D

I still haven't finished Fallout 1 myself, and am determined to play them in order.

My problem is that the computer I owned before this one refused to play the game.

However I'm a good bit into the game now, and slowly realising how vast even that first game was.

I should say that my starting playing this past month had nothing to do with the plog, as I've been following this thing for some time. It really is enjoyable to see mini versions of things I've been stumbling into.

Part-way through my Enclave troopers from Brother Vinni

They are fantastic models, though a bit harder to pose than the BOS model, they really capture the sinister look of the Enclave power armour

Really looking forward to the Super Mutant and conversion bits

Got the Super Mutants in the post. Boy are they big figures, bigger than most of the in-game supers it seems. Not as keen on this figure as I am the others in the Nuclear Sandlot collection by Brother Vinni. My main gripe with this guy would be that trying to drill a hole into his hands for the hammer is horrible.

http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m295/emperorpenguin77/DSC04212.jpg

As a consequence, and for variety, the second one will get a gun of some description instead.

Here he is next to the BOS and Enclave figures for scale.

The Enclave models are superb, and you've painted them superbly too. A tesla armoured Enclave trooper would be the icing on the cake, but I don't know if any of those exist.

The Super Mutant looks really imposing as well, I just wonder if the green needed to be a bit stronger, but that may just be the effect of the light. It still looks good regardless.

There are no tesla armoured Enclave troopers yet, I'm hoping for one and a hellfire trooper.

I've fudged the Super Mutant colour slightly as the Mariposa ones are a dull green but the Vault 87s are a yellow green. Seeing as I want mine to double for both types I've gone sepia-thraka for colour

Just looked through the entire log, really nice stuff! If you still want advice on making stuff really weathered I recently had the same problem. Found that just googling what you're looking for (e.g "old rusty car") generates some really good pictures, and then it's just a matter of painting the model to look like that. Bestial brown, scorched brown and blazing orange are your friends....

Keep it up,

@BeatTheBeat, cheers, I've been trying that mix of colours along with some tin bitz and devlan mud on the cars and bus in the plog.

@TSS, Not soft at all really, I'm not sure what to compare it to but I guess it's about the same as the only Finecast model I have (a War Hydra) and certainly stronger than Mongoose's resin

Yeah I did think about altering that but Super Duper Mart was pretty big in-game and this is much smaller, more like your Spar or Londis type shop (claims to be a supermarket but is really a rip-off convenience store)

So this is more like the little Supermarkets you find in-game, like the cool one in FO3 with the domino-rally booby trap

You've not played Fallout 3?

There's a tiny reference to Chinese Crimson Dragoons in New Vegas (two captured suits in Hoover Dam) but Fallout 3 has lots of Chinese.

You've got Operation Anchorage - full of Chinese enemies.
Tranquility Lane - Optional Chinese invasion shutdown.
A dead Chinese Commando with a repeating radio beacon.
Dead Chinese spies in a sewer.
Point Lookout has an entire Chinese spy quest, involving a concentration camp and a submarine.
But these guys are found at Mama Dolce's food processing plant outside Arlington cemetery. There's a factory full of them including snipers and heavy weapons, plus they have a propaganda radio station!

Ninja'd by Catferret and I put in a spoiler because I had revealed what he hid!

There's some great work in here. Have to love the Fallout series. Played the originals through at least two or three times. Still prefer the first, to be honest, but they are all great. It's even more amusing, because I finally got around to playing New Vegas (I've owned it for a long time, lol) and that's what's keeping me from working on my own project log.

Played a three player game today for the first time and it was a blast. My opponents were two of my brothers, one a regular opponent, the other playing my Fallout rules for the first time.

We played on a 36" x 36" set-up with the forces being

Caesar's Legion:
Decanus with pistol & machete
Legionary with throwing spears
Legionary with assault rifle
Legionary with ripper & hunting rifle
Legionary with machete & hunting rifle
Legionary with hunting rifle & bladed gauntlet



New California Republic
Officer with assault rifle
Trooper with assault rifle
Trooper with assault rifle
1st Recon sniper with scoped hunting rifle
Ranger with scoped hunting rifle
Heavy Trooper with lmg



Super Mutants - My faction
Brute with minigun
Mutant with Super Sledge
Nightkin with Super Sledge
Centaur


So we set up with each side choosing one table edge to set up. First fire went to the NCR as the 1st Recon sniper badly wounded the Centaur which waddled off looking for cover. A legionary opened up on a Super Mutant wounding it. First kill went to the NCR as the LMG of the Heavy Trooper ripped through the spear armed legionary.
In the second turn the Legion got revenge as the ripper armed legionary carved open the salvaged power armour of the heavy trooper. The NCR was badly deployed and found itself fighting hand to hand and losing to the Legion. Meanwhile the Nightkin under cover of its stealthboy ambushed the 1st Recon sniper killing him with a powerful blow from its super sledge. The NCR were reeling from this attack on two flanks.
Next turn saw the centaur shot dead by the Legion, but the Brute shredded a Legionary with a burst of accurate minigun fire. The NCR managed to stabilise their line, shooting dead the ripper-armed legionary, while the Ranger survived a missed swing from the Nightkin, only to snap his knife on the mutant's tough hide.
Then the other Super mutant fought a legionary in the centre of the table but lost! Followed by the NCR finally killing the nightkin, it appeared that the Super mutants were out of it and the NCR might just prevail.
However the Legion renewed its attacks and the NCR's luck ran out as its surviving troops died, leaving a Decanus and legionary to fight the Brute. The Brute managed to kill the Decanus with more minigun fire but the other legionary drew his machete and charged the mutant which needed to roll a 3 or less save to survive, it came up 3!
Turning its depleted minigun (down to ROF 2) one last time on the legionary it scored the necessary hit to win, just!

All in all, a very bloody but very exciting game which swung in favour of each side and hinged on one dice roll! We even had one car explode with the force of a mini-nuke when the Ranger was killed.

The updates are all looking very good.

I think that it's fair enough not to cut up those buildings, as there are plenty of intact buildings in both Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas. They just look a little worse for wear in terms of the peeling paint work, and that sort of thing.

emperorpenguin

Very true. Though recently I noticed that the Supermarket model had a growing crack above the door in addition to the break at the bottom, so I hacked it apart along that fault line. I'll get a pic but that is now one partially ruined Not-so-Super-Duper-Mart

Finished a few Mercs. Painted these guys up in the Talon Co/Rivet City colours. These are a mix of Copplestone and EM4 models, so basically all Mark Copplestone. One merc has a laser rifle and another a missile launcher, a great equaliser when facing Power Armour!

I gathered that, but I hadn't realized how well that stacked up next to each other before. It doesn't help that the pics on the em4 website are dreadful.

I really like the Feral Ghouls. You've captured their different skin tones very well.

The Talon Company mercenaries are also impressive. They are very reminiscent of a Necromunda gang.

Thanks Irisado, I think they'd make good Van Sars

Got a few models from Armourcast. I've yet to do the Bloatflies but these guys are nearly finished.

First of all

What are moo looking at?

http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m295/emperorpenguin77/DSC04976.jpg

Armourcast never included the pack it was supposed to come with, so waiting on them to correct that, I'll be using this gal as the objective in Caravan raid scenarios.

Here's a shot of it next to a Supermutant and a Paladin

Well the first choice I faced was whether to go 28mm or 15mm, Khurasan do some great Fallout-y 15mm figures.
Are you looking to just paint or game?

nedius
03-09-2012, 23:06
Game, same scale as you. 28mm. Am thinking about doing something dungeon crawl-ish.

Insidentally, what rule set are you using? Fallout Warfare?

Read it, will comment there! There are some definate similarities with my rules!

Anyway, which miniatures are your favourites? I'm planning on starting with ghouls, scorpians, radroaches, molerats... the critter selection, really. I'll move onto raiders after that.

emperorpenguin
04-09-2012, 20:49
I'd love to see Radroaches! They and Giant Ants are ridiculously hard to find.

My favourites? Tough question. I really like the varied NCR models. Also like my Legion models, turned out much better than I thought. But I'm very fond of my Chinese Remnants.

Irisado
04-09-2012, 20:54
That centaur looks really impressive. I really like how you've painted that.

The pose of the Yao Guai is spot on. That's pretty close to how they like to strike in the game.

nedius

Thanks Irisado. Yes I agree the pose is great, the sculptor intends to do another Yao Guai, I'd love to see one on all fours. One thing I'd like though is for him to emphasise the rotting, ghoulified nature of the beast more, this has a bit too much fur really

Wow they are pricy! You could get the 3 pack, you'll not need too many? The idea of a dungeoncrawl is great, set in an abandoned Vault presumably?

Quick question for you. I have been looking into getting some of those Plasticville buildings myself for skirmish terrain. I was looking at the different scales of the buildings and wondering which scale you found. Was it 'O scale or 'S' scale?

Co-operative, at least to begin with. If I were to go more wargame style, I'd probably either just use Fallout Warfare, or your rules. Mine will probably work comparitively to Warhammer Quest, or Super Dungeon Explore... that 'style' of thing, just with Fallout inspired rules.

Anyway, have enjoyed this log for ages and will keep watching. If I find any good miniature ideas will pass them on!

Was looking at the savage orc big boss the other day and was thinking it might make a good mutie with rebar club or some such. So many ideas, so little time...

There was a menber of Warseer (and The Underhive before we shut it down) that had some very Fallouty stuff that may inspire you. He's one of the high ups on The Post Apoc Wargames Forum (http://s1.zetaboards.com/Post_Apoc_Wargames/index/). Hunt for stuff by Ross. He's converted loads of civilians, traders and tribals over the years. Can't direct you to anything specific right now sadly.

Dear emperorpenguin,

this is my first post and because of you i joined this forum.

I just want to thank you for this great project.

I love the Fallout world and i love skirmish games like Mordheim. So a Fallout skirmish games is what i am missing.

Also thanks for the link to the Viniie brothers. I will buy some models of them.

I also found your rule thread and will post some comments there too.

BIG THANK YOU!

Yes I have seen Wreck Age and nearly chipped in for their Kickstarter but funds were tight. They'll be releasing some great Merchant models which I want for my Brahmin caravan.

Great find Dan, damn it I'll need to order one even though I have two similar models already!

He is releasing 3 Vault Dwellers and a "Vault Armour" suit soon. The Vault Armour looks odd though, not similar enough to T51b or Hellfire to be either


The Japanese zombies in one of his other ranges would make great Chinese Remnants. Uniforms would look close enough.

I'm not sure, those tropical Japanese uniforms look too light to me, also the bullet-holed torsos would be wrong (though they can be green-stuffed)

Nedius, did you get those models from Brother Vinni?

Finally got around to doing a few more models. Found a good figure to represent a Chinese captain with classic Chinese pistol and sword.
The second figure is my travelling merchant to go with the Pack Brahmin in caravan escort scenarios

That Legion Centurion is really impressive. I think that you've painted the flame effect particularly well, and strikes a suitably arrogant pose as well.

Great work on the jacket too. That must have been quite tricky. You have a much steadier hand than I could ever hope to.

emperorpenguin
31-12-2012, 11:55
Thanks Irisado. I only washed it with casandora yellow! I did try painting a proper layered flame effect but frankly, I am not good enough. So whitewashed and took the easy option for the second attempt!

I do quite like the jacket, just need to neaten up the main star. I've actually not got a steady hand at all! So if I can do it, I'm sure you can.
And the arrogant centurion is also huge! He's a full head taller than most of my figures, makes for a suitably Lanius-esque look!

nedius
31-12-2012, 13:29
Hey - yes I did. They are amazing models. Got the eye bots and protectrons. They are a little delicate, one turned up already damaged - but only slightly, which I didn't mind given the delicate nature of them and how far they travelled! Got a Golden Deamon level painter and modeller friend (he KNOWS good miniatures) and he loved them.

Getting the game written up, printed out and miniatures painted up are my new years resolution! Good to see a new post from you - always inspiring!

I've been working on my Fallout rules too, did quite a fair few playtests over december. Hoping to post the updated version very soon.

I want to order the Protectron from BV but not ordering that alone. Still not convinved by the Vault-Tec power armour model and wondering when he'll make the Vault Dweller trio he was sculpting available?

It's really quite easy, I have maybe 1% skill and I managed it! I'm not completely happy because flame should be darker at the top, but with washing you just can't achieve that effect.

Yes I am verry happy if anyone plays Fallout after reading my plog :D

I restarted New Vegas myself, going to try to get the NCR to ally with the BOS this time. Already played it through 3 times! Still need to finish play no4 and side with Yes Man.

I have also been replaying Fallout 3 and was astonished to discover a building with Talon Mercs which I hadn't ever found before in 4 years and 4 playthroughs of the game!

Now if Wayland would just hurry up with my order I'll be adding the White Legs and other models to this plog :p

Oh the talon merc comp base? Always found that one, right after they started sending kill teams after me :D still have to do a neutral and evil playthrough for normal fallout 3 but im still playing my first new vegas playthrough. I always hoard as much items as possible and then see what nifty stuff I can make from it :) first playthrough is on hardcore so I got food, drinks and sleep to worry about as well :)
