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…
