  1. Here are a couple great characters for Modiphius' Fallout miniatures game that I got to paint up.

    The first one is the Nukacola girl- sort of a pinup girl used in advertising for the brand, so she's wearing more makeup than most Fallout characters.

    The second is the alien. If you don't recognize him from the game, that probably means that you didn't explore his location yet.

  2. I tend to disagree with people who don't like scenery on their miniature bases, but there are plenty of people who get all clear acrylic bases just for that reason. I rather find that matching base styles across a force adds quite a lot to them, and that is something that is often lost on the vehicles (the rhino here was part of a Movie Marines force where each marine had a fairly elaborate 40mm base with wreckage).

    In the wargaming context, I find that I prefer working with bases as this makes measuring things easier, but adding a base definitely changes the footprint of the mini (still legal for GW games, since they only require that you not decrease the mini's footprint). Again, that's something that plenty of gamers disagree with me on.

    I do like your point about making the treads uneven. If I ever make the Razorback for this force, I'll find some reference photos and go with that.

    Those are all gorgeous!

     

    I hope you get commission from these companies, because the amount of games that I've bought because you did a stellar paint job on them is fairly significant ::o:

     

    Lol, I'm glad I would be of help.

    I'd give the game a very positive review as well. The sense of exploration is really cool. In our last game, we actually managed to take down the cat (which was epic- you're definitely supposed to run away from that fight).

    neat looking, what's that tank at the back for? the one that is kind of dragging

     

    I like to imagine it is filled with something extremely volatile, and is positioned there to encourage the driver not to run over any rocks.

  5. Wear and tear is usually a welcome addition to most vehicle models. After all, tank armor is made to take a few hits.

    One of the things to keep in mind when painting something like that is the story it tells. Where and how you place it tells of how the damage happened. Rusty areas are older than shining metal showing through- moreso if there are streaks of rust leading down. A combination of rust and metal shows that this is a place where the rust layer gets scrapped off.

    This vehicle is from Seedy Tea Publishing‘s Simulacrum Protocol line.

    Wow!  These are freaking great.  It's fun looking at the figures and identifying bits and bobs on them.  It took me a moment looking at the one rat to recognize that you'd painted a Coke Logo on the chest plate.  ::P:  Really nice work on these.  :winkthumbs:

     

     

    Thanks. I'm so glad that you can recognize a diet coke can.

    The artwork for him in the game used a Campbell's soup can. I decided that I really wanted the can to be white so that the rust runoff would show up really well.
