A quick update for tonight - I’ve tweaked the thread title to make it more of a general progress thread, of scenery, models, etc.
Firstly, I’ll list the models that I have, and those that I have on order. So far, I’ve got:
The two player starter set
Super Mutant Behemoth
On order, I’ve got:
Super Mutant Core set
Brotherhood of Steel Core set
I bought the game to play with my wife, as we are both huge gamers and Fallout fans. Laura decided she wanted to collect the Brotherhood, and I was going to collect the Raiders, but as they aren’t coming just yet, I’ve thrown my lot in with the Super Mutants.
The Survivors are mainly there for any of our friends to use if they would like to learn the game, and to use as AI when playing co-operatively or solo.
I’m planning on collecting pretty much all the models, because they are fantastic collectors pieces as well as gaming miniatures, so I’m pretty happy with the game. I used to play GW games, so Modiphius’ ruleset encouraging us to collect everything and play together rather than against each other is a breath of fresh air. I’d always considered my wargaming days as done and gone, ne’er to return. But then along came Wasteland Warfare.
I do love the Behemoth model, but I really want to go to town on it and turn it into something unique. Inspired by Swan from FO4, I’m thinking of giving my Behemoth his own personality displayed on his model.
I’ve ordered a lot of the City Scenics sets from TTCombat, including a lot of their resin detail kits. I plan on replacing the giant shopping trolley on the Behemoth’s back with an upside down porta-loo, and paint “waste” running down the Behemoth’s waistcloth
He’s also getting a few more details, like road sign armour plates, a teddy bear on his belt, and a necklace made of traffic cones.
One of my bald super mutants is also going to get a “lucky wizard’s hat” made from one of the traffic cones, and I’m thinking of giving one of my Brutes a stop sign battleaxe instead of a Sledgehammer.
Scenery wise, I’ve got the TTCombat ruined gas station, ruined Drive Thru, Distribution Centre and Porta-cabin to add to my scenery board.
Lots of work to do on the scenery before any of my models get painted.
