While I’m still not completely caught up on what everyone has been up to over the past month, I’m doing the best I can and have been enjoying hobbying for the most part this week. It has been a welcome refuge from a truly crazy work week too. I did get the Scibor Dwarf up at Cool Mini or Not, so if you’d like to vote on him, you can do so here. Absolutely no pressure to do so. I always feel a bit weird soliciting votes but I’m slowly starting to accept that that is part of the whole process. I haven’t made as much progress on the Dark Angel as I hoped so today I will show off some of the things I’ve completed for Fallout recently.
While perhaps not among the most exciting miniatures, I had a good time painting Mama Murphy (she’s the one in the front-center) who has some nice details on the sculpt. I got a bit of freehand in on her hat which is unfortunately kind of hard to see in the picture above. For anyone curious, Mama Murphy is a drug using psychic in Fallout 4 and while she is a very minor character and a non-combatant basically, she seems like she has interesting mechanics in the game so I look forward to using her in the future. I’m also halfway through the Survivors box so making pretty steady progress there.
While he isn’t entirely new, I finished up Codsworth (and a piece of terrain with a dead tree in it which you can only partially see because it doesn’t fit in my lightbox well) recently. Not a ton to say about him other than that, I’m really proud of him still, especially now that the rust is on him. It is kind of a delicate process applying the rush as there are a lot of pieces that can get in your way but I think I captured the look of the game and did ol’ Codsworth justice. I also look forward to using him on the tabletop and recreating some of my adventures in Fallout 🙂
While I hope to take a scenic picture with some terrain one day, the picture above is how the “Heroes of Sanctuary Hills” look all together. I thought that picture was really crisp and had nice details so I figured it was worth sharing even though you’ve likely seen these mini before.
Finally, I have a shiny Super Mutant who I haven’t varnished yet or added rust effects but is otherwise done. Truthfully, he is not my best of the super mutants and I think I got a bit burnt out while working on this guy. I wanted to get him done because knew that I only needed one more for playing Fallout 4. I don’t typically like to show stuff that is unfinished but because I plan to do a rust painting tutorial using this guy and I figured why not. He doesn’t have as smooth of blends as the previous super mutants but the rust will cover that up by the time I’m done so I doubt that I need to put so much effort in blending but I can’t help it!
Speaking of playing Fallout Wasteland Warfare, I have a few more terrain pieces to finish up and then I think I’m going to try one of the tutorial scenarios, if possible. I’ve been getting the itch to play and once I get the Dark Angel done, I will try and to get back to painting some stuff for gaming so I can actually do a bit of gaming and write some battle reports. I recently purchased some new Fallout sculpts as well since I could tell that was getting a little tired of painting survivors and super mutants so that is something else I will be looking forward to and you can expect to see in the near future.
