This week’s update is going to be a short one because I’ve been working on a single model this week and all I have for you is a couple of WIP pictures. Please excuse some wear on some of the base as I tend to unintentionally rub paint off in those areas as I move my hands around and paint Fallout minis. That is also why I only basecoated those parts as I knew I’d have to go back and finish those parts last as it is. Anyway, without further ado, let’s see some power armor!
As you can see, this guy is very much a work in progress still though the back is pretty much done and looks quite nice if I do say so myself.
Of course, one thing that I will be doing is adding weathering which will add some more color to the mini which it needs. I will also see if I can’t tint the armor a bit more blue to help match the style of Fallout further. Hopefully if all goes well it will come out nicely and be a good start to the Brotherhood faction.
With this mini started, I now have 4 of the 5 factions in Fallout 4 started which is pretty cool. My collection feels pretty modest still at this point though I do have quite a few models that I have painted and haven’t gamed with yet so that is something to look forward to. As I’m sure I’ve mentioned before, I’m not all that fond of the Brotherhood in Fallout 4 compared to previous games. I think Bethesda threw us a curveball and made the Brotherhood pretty evil compared to past games to subvert expectations. At least they still look cool in their armor!
The main reason I picked up this mini is that I needed a model in power armor for the next scenario and this was the closest option I could find to the PVC plastic mini that comes in the starter set that I don’t want to paint due to the lower sculpt quality. Once this guy/gal is done, it will be time for another battle report which I’m very much looking forward to. I expect that in a week’s time, this guy will be done and I can start thinking about getting the next game in! I’ve also been looking for some more terrain projects that would be useful for Fallout and I expect to buy and start making my first bigger terrain project in the nearish future which should add some more life to my Fallout boards.
