Hyacinth Games has just come out with a new edition of <a href="https://wreck-age.net">Wreck Age</a>.
I figured that makes it a good time to show off some of the Wreck Age stuff that I've gotten to paint. Here are a few.
With a lot of minis, a clean style is preferable, but with these, it is really important to emphasize the wear and tear- the rust and damage.
And this last one is actually a Freeblades mini that my client had me convert into a Wreck Age character. I think she came out quite nicely.

A friend of mine gave me #77380, "Khanjira, World-Breaker" as a gift over the holidays, and challenged me to work it into our ongoing Iron Kingdoms RPG campaign.
The thing is, I think it looks rather like an oversized deathclaw, so I might like to use it for some of my Fallout-themed convention games. Hence, I wanted to try to make it do double-duty in both roles.
Also, I wanted it to be able to stand up, rather than falling over due to its own dynamic pose and considerable weight when someone bumped the table.
So, here's where it is right now. Yeah, I know, I could've taken a bunch of pictures of all the steps to get this far. That would have been the sensible thing. But this is the first point where I really find myself wondering what to do next. Right now, he's big and green, with horns and claws that are basically black but with some grey-blue dry-brushing (that unfortunately just makes it look as if the claws were accidentally brushed with whatever I was using to paint the base). All in all, it's surprisingly boring. And yet, a lot of the Khanjira paint jobs I've seen just look kind of garish, and that's not quite what I want to go for, either.
Getting the thing assembled was a challenge. I boiled water, I dunked pieces, I tried to reshape them, and yet I couldn't quite get things to STAY fitting together. I used epoxy putty for gap-filler and to anchor pieces together, but even after I've assembled it and I THOUGHT I had things nicely bonded together, it seems that some of the pieces have warped a little more while I've been painting, and some of the seams have started to show again (with some of the putty breaking away). Argh! I ended up having to pull some of the pieces apart so that I could re-glue them, but I still need to repair the newly-exposed gaps (and then paint over them). I can also see from this photo that I need to shave down some of those seams, as there's a rather glaring one on top of one of the shoulder-guard shell-thingies.
(I seem to be having difficulty attaching more than one photo to this post, so I'll have to follow up with separate entries for the other images.)
I finished her. It's finished but not perfect. I could have messed around with things even further and cleaned her up a bit more. I really probably could have left her sitting for weeks trying to figure out what else to do which is when I decided it's done.
Pretty happy with the eyes on this one. Also, the chaps were the first time I'd attempted to do distressed leather which I think look pretty good for a first attempt. Probably could have gotten clearer pictures but didn't want to fight with the phone any longer.
ETA: C&C welcome.
This was one of my dioramas for the 2017 ReaperCon. I got the idea when Bombshell announced their Maelee and bot combo pack for the month of February last year, I think. I just happened to be playing Fallout 4 at the time and got the idea of doing a wasteland bot shop with Maelee as the owner and a bunch of bots around doing things. This was not my diorama that ended up being judged for the medal but it did received the silver Maelee Award for Diorama/Large Scale.
Here is the WIP thread: The Bot Shop
A big thank you to everyone who gave me feedback in the WIP thread and a huge shout out to @SisterMaryNapalm for recommending I add the android which ended up solving my "is this telling a story?" issue.
