  1. Great job on those Ferals!

    Seeing those location images and thinking back to how immersed I was β€œback in the day” I am reminded just how great Fallout 4 is, even with its flaws. Trying to consider how I would go about building a tabletop version of all that truly boggles my mind.

    I look forward to seeing your vision of it come to life.

    1. Thank you, sir! πŸ™‚ I couldn’t agree more about your comments on Fallout 4. It isn’t the best game that came out in that era of video games but there is something special about it at the same time. Perhaps one day, you’ll dip into your Fallout minis and join me in the Wasteland? πŸ˜‰

  2. Awesome work on the ghouls, I must get back into Fallout 4, I restarted it and all of a sudden got hooked on War Thunder, so haven’t played for a while. You could always go for a church, they pretty much all have the same design they would then fit most locales.

    1. Cheers, mate! I will never argue against playing Fallout 4. It is so much fun! Thanks for the suggestion on a church as well. That is a great idea for a building that I should make. I’ve seen some great MDF kits for them so I will definitely pick one up in the near future πŸ™‚

  3. Nice work on the ghouls, I like how they fit in with your other Fallout miniatures (in terms of painting style). It feels very cohesive and am looking forward to seeing them pop up in a battle report at some point.

    Lots of nice ideas for terrain! All of them sound cool to recreate on the tabletop.

    1. Thank you for the kind words, as always! I’m planning on playing Fallout Wasteland Warfare again soon over the Thanksgiving break and your words of encouragement are getting me even more excited to play πŸ™‚

  4. The ghoul looks great, like he is running to come eat something/someone. Though he is coming so fast that even if you shot him 4 times he would still be headed towards you and die with a hand on your sneaker… πŸ˜€

    So is the idea to get those scenario specific pieces (like the radio tower) and somehow incorporate it into a board set at a specific Fallout 4 location? Could be a challenge but certainly doable. Skirmish games always seem to be terrain heavy so I think one usually starts as generic as possible just to kinda bulk up the terrain before being really specific. But your right that we are lucky in this day and age we can get almost anything as a kit, so it’s more a question of what is cool and what is affordable rather than is it available.

    I wish you better luck with the post office. πŸ˜€

    1. I couldn’t agree more with you about the ghoul sentiment. That is what I really like about the minis too πŸ™‚

      It is challenging to think about terrain that can be used in multiple ways for me anyway. I do think the radio tower could be more flexible than you would initially think since there tend to be multiple radio towers you can find in a Fallout game. If I remember correctly, there was even one in Fallout 4 that Raiders used as a base/shantytown so its possible to use it in a few different ways. The trick is focusing on stuff that can be used in a variety of ways though. Often times the coolest and most fun pieces to own are the least practical πŸ˜€

      Thank you for the kind words on USPS. I think this is only going to get worse for the rest of this year with the holidays upon us. I’ve heard a lot of people speculate that the post office will be overwhelmed and people might not get gifts delivered on time. I hope that isn’t the case but I can certainly see it happening at the same time 😦


  5. Nice work on the ghoul, Jeff! πŸ™‚ And certainly a lot of good locations to work with there! I’d probably be thinking about smaller scenery bits that could be used across a few settings and then adding bigger, more specific, ones as required.

    1. Thanks, John! I think there is a lot of wisdom in that idea. I have some smaller scatter pieces to work on (when the post office delivers them) and I’m hoping they’ll add even more life to my table πŸ™‚

  6. The imagine boggles at the terrain options for Fallout 4!
    Like maenofferen22 mentioned, there should be buildings/terrain that would be common across several environs. A small building can be the office in a construction yard or part the shanty town etc. I guess identify which environs you really want and identify which buildings are specific and which ones can be used interchangeably.
    Looking forward to this!

    1. There are definitely a lot of options and plenty of opportunities for variety which I really like. I think the approach you’re suggesting is what I will try to follow too. I’m sure I’ll be looking for feedback from you and others who are more skilled than I with terrain so I’m glad to hear you’ll be following along πŸ™‚


  7. You’ve got my sympathy re the postage situation. My Necromunda orlocks and their new book are sitting in a warehouse somewhere and God only knows when I’ll get my hands on them. :-\Β 

    Nice work on that ghoul, looking forward to seeing the glowing ones, that’ll be interesting. And good luck with the post apocalyptic terrain, that sounds as though it’ll be right up my street so I’ll be watching your progress with particular interest.Β

    1. I fear that many of us are dealing with or will be dealing with postal woes in the near future sadly but I hope that both you and I get what we’ve purchased soon! I’m on my fifth straight day without any mail delivery unfortunately.

      Thanks for the kind words and I’m glad to hear you’ll be interested in what could be quite a lot of future terrain projects too πŸ™‚

  8. Good work on those Ghouls; I can’t wait to see what you do with the glowing ones.

    For themed boards, the ruined trailer park is surely the most modular one in the sense that the same combinations of trailers can be arranged in endless permutations. From a gaming perspective it has the large advantage that trailers are probably big enough to block line-of-sight.

    1. Thanks! πŸ™‚ The glowing ones should be a bit of a challenge but I look forward to it all the same.

      That is a great point about the trailer park! They would be more flexible than your typical house since they are smaller so I will certainly keep that in mind for a future terrain project.
