WASTELANDERS: Bombshell's Maelee and Pinnacle Mutant 2

Recommended Posts

More denizens of the post-nuclear hellscape, though they could also work well as SPACEFUTURE COMMUNISTS OF MARS ("Keep the Red Planet Red!"). Wasteland Maelee and Ivan the Mutant occupy opposite ends of the Nuclear Glow-Up spectrum. 

First, Ivan. Painted him ages ago, mostly in washes. This is another of that 3-pack of mutants from Pinnacle's "Hell on Earth" line. He has a bad case of Gnarly Arm, and those veins look like they might be infected. On the other (giant, mutated) hand, everyone likes a guy who can bicep-curl a tractor. DSCN5071.thumb.JPG.a3d20391b97d21d2f594d5d2a5c36e61.JPGDSCN5072.thumb.JPG.94c64f2b55bfaaa3e5319fa36aa406b3.JPGDSCN5073.thumb.JPG.7515317e24278f9ce29e001bf94ec95c.JPGDSCN5076.thumb.JPG.3ae3c3b50fa990b7323688cd578d23ba.JPG

Bombshell's own Wasteland Maelee, by contrast, is looking fine. Mechanic and fix-it gal of her settlement, her skills are always in demand. That colossal wrench is good for braining radioactive monsters, too, and she has the arms to swing it. 
She's one of my most recently-finished minis and I have to say I am not displeased! Used some flesh-tone wash to give her a set of sick abs, and used 'Ardcoat for bright eyes and lip gloss. I could do a close-up of that face without shame. 

The thing under her eye is supposed to be a band-aid, I think.

Thanks!

Great face on Maelee - like the yellow crop top too - do you think Ivan has the courage to ask her out?

I keep getting lucky with the eyes on Bombshell babes, for some reason! The yellow crop top I took from the original concept painting; it was a good idea then as now. 

Good question...I think being in a depopulated wasteland, free from advertising and most reflective surfaces, cuts right through a lot of self-image issues that our modern world might generate and foster. Ivan's technically got the standard number of arms, legs, and heads, and he can throw an engine block like it ain't no thang, or bend steel pipes like paperclips. He'd be a valued member of most settlements, and especially helpful in a garage.

After all, a chiseled jawline and classic bone structure won't fend off the cannibal scorpion-riders by themselves! A gal has to plan for the future, and I'd say Ivan's got pretty good odds under the circumstances.

      It was getting along for sundown when the turtle moseyed into town.

      Now, round these parts, we don't ask questions about a man's past. But every man's got a past, and sometimes the past got a long shadow. 
       

       
      (Special guest appearances by Bombshell's Raferu-san and some modified Troglodytes.) 
       
      I will glue a grommet top hat to anything, anything. 
      Something about the poncho made me think of old Spaghetti westerns, and things snowballed from there. 
      Hope you enjoy!

      Just a few last miniatures completed before the new year.  Maybe I'll get some individual shots of the free hand, maybe not.  In the meantime, enjoy or ignore as you will

      This in The Girl from Bombshell Miniatures and was one of my entries in the Painter's category at ReaperCon. I started painting her a couple of years ago, mainly to test the peachy color of the cloth. I decided to quickly finish her for ReaperCon as I wanted to have a Bombshell entry. She was not the figure chosen for judging in the main contest but she did receive a silver medal (dog tag) in Bombshell's manufacturer awards.

      This little guy was a freebie from Bombshell Miniatures given out at Reapercon 2019. He is also available on their website.  I put him on a jungle base from Microarts.  Tried for some dark blue/grey coloration, wasn't happy with it, tried some green washes, but he kept turning blue again. Brushed a little green metallic on and he turned silver, did the green wash again with a different brand.  Decided I had messed around with it long enough. 
       
      In the background is a 3-d printed stone bridge my husband made for me. Tabletop drybrush in shades of brown over a black base coat.

      Now these are some absolutely fantastic sculpts. The bloodthirsty fanaticism really shows in every line and detail. 02681, Abram Duskwalker, is the perfect Solomon Kane / Witchfinder Pursuivant / Inquisitor-general / Puritan regicide sculpt. Toned down his sword a bit; the brass knuckles seemed a bit much (though perhaps I have run into another "Tiffany paradox" here; I'm not a weapons historian). Lots of detail, all delightfully accessible and easy to paint.


      Mira the Inquisitor, from Bombshell's Babes line, is every bit his counterpart. Decided to go with a red color scheme, which confers the added side-benefit of making her a Jacobean-era Carmen Sandiego. 


      But we all know what you came here for: Hammer horror-style ACTION SHOTS!
