A little while ago Crooked Dice rereleased the old (very good) Palduron Games post apocalypse terrain, and seeing it really got my post apocalypse juices flowing.
I was (and still am) a bit worried that
a) I don’t enjoy painting 28mm massively
b) a sci-fi post apocalypse wasteland theme might retread some of the ground I’m covering in 15mm
so I decided before splurging on terrain to dig through my leadpile and paint something related first.
I chose these chaps, from Pig Iron Productions (who I’m glad are back in the game having ended a while ago):
I went for a speed painting method, skipping a whole step that I would usually take – I think it worked pretty well for these grubby, dirty, rusty scavengers – not sure I’ll use it for other minis though.
All in all, I think they look pretty effective – time to treat myself to a bit of terrain! A few Diggas from the old Gorkamorka range next I reckon…

These look great mate – it’s nice when you can get away with a quicker painting method (I do the same for my undead)
Cheers chief – exactly, got a little faction up and running quickly.

Very nice work there chap! Really effective painting and speeding up the process is always a good thing.
I totally see where you’re coming from in regards to enjoying the painting or not. I’ve a load of 28mm stuff that needs painting (and assembling – which is also a chore) but, try as I might, I don’t actually enjoy painting them. 15mm seems so much more, well, fun! Coupled with the fact that hobby time is limited I may as well enjoy it.
Yeah – I’ve learned not to go big on spending for projects anymore unless I’ve painted a wee bit up first, incase it’s a chore.
It’s a shame sometimes – I bought some of the Lead Adventure Astropolis models and, although they’re absolutely fantatsic, I hated painting all the little gribbly details. I need a new, impressionistic approach to 28mm I think!
Awesome man. I Love Pig Iron.
Really nice job there
Thanks very much, please I churned them out!
