Resin versus Plastic in Fallout Wasteland Warfare

  1. These minis look superb! Seems you’re progressing quite quickly as well. I’m still struggling with painting the rest of my Minas Tirith force. They are relatively quick to paint but not very exciting so going through them very slowly as a result.

    1. Thank you, Gero! 🙂 I think the quarantine is giving me some extra time to paint and I’m pretty motivated too which doesn’t hurt either. It is always tough when you’re painting up an “army” or even a squad of very similar sculpts, I always try to throw something else in whenever I get tired of painting a particular type of sculpt to make sure I don’t get too burnt out. Then again, that probably only slows me down so do whatever works best for you 🙂

  2. Nice progress! It must be hard to want to paint figures where the details aren’t as defined as we have gotten use to with gw and forgeworld. Is it because the figures are a box game vs a miniature figure line? You are doing a great job on painting them and I’m interested in what kind of terrain you will be doing. I never played Fallout but watched a lot when my friend was playing it and I drank his beer. 🙂

    1. Definitely, I don’t think I could go back to painting board game minis like when I started the hobby. The starter set features plastic minis that are of a board game quality and the rest of the minis are resin so I knew what I was getting into when I bought the starter and expected to go resin pretty quickly which is exactly what happened.

      I’m excited about the terrain I have planned too. It will almost be more diorama-like (as strange as that sounds) as it will be your traditional trees and foliage since this is the apocalypse and all. Glad to hear you know Fallout somewhat well then and hopefully you find these posts interesting. I always appreciate you stopping by, particularly when it is non-MESBG related as I know Fallout isn’t in your wheelhouse.

    1. Thanks Grumpy! I appreciate that you enjoy Fallout and LOTR like myself so I know that no matter what I post, it will likely be of interest to you 🙂

  3. Very nice painting on these miniatures. Though I never really understand why post apoc has so much rust on everything. Even in the dark ages folks knew how to prevent it, and you’d think on important stuff like armor folks would do the upkeep. I guess it’s just one of those troupes. 😀
    Still great progress all around! I’m glad you liked the resin sculpts better.

    1. Thanks, Stew! I think there is something about rust that just makes it visually clear that something has gone really wrong but I honestly had never even thought about rust not being realistic. I’m realizing that I don’t know as much about history as I thought because historical wargamers like yourself tend to be INCREDIBLY knowledgeable and it is impressive! 🙂

  4. Great work, and you can see even on these models that the resins ones are nicer than the PVC. I like the outcome of the rust effects that you’ve achieved on the models – a nice scarred-type effect on the Super Mutant leader. And Dogmeat with his naturalistic dog-fur looks fantastic!

    1. Thanks, mate! I was really pleased with the resin sculpts and how much nicer these ended up looking. I feel proud whenever I see Dogmeat as well. He came out better than I expected/was hoping 😀

      1. Aww thanks! It’s funny, because she kind of picked my husband and I. She used to belong to a guy who went out of town for at least a week out of every month for work, so we would keep her at our house and he would always say how it seemed like she had so much fun with us and liked us more! After about a year and a half, he decided to relocate permanently instead of constantly traveling, so he asked if we wanted her… how could we ever say no! 😉 That was over 6 years ago and she’s been such a great dog!

      2. That’s a really nice story and I’m glad you found each other. It is cliche to talk about how loyal dogs are but that is one of their best traits and it makes it hard not to love them 🙂
