Thanks. I printed it for ElderScrolls: CTA but it also works well for FWW. Just need to print some different bridges for the higher areas. I'll post a layout of it later in the month if I get everything done I want to (it's mostly printed, just need a few more things and only about half of it is painted).

Thanks. It over saturates and washes out the bright blues and greens. It's not too bad on most of them but really exaggerates it on the eggs and hatchlings. That being said I'm quite happy with them for the most part. I could do better, but for the amount of effort (maybe 30-45min each depending) I think they're rather good.

Finally got the motivation to finish assembling the Mirelure Queen last week so I painted her up this weekend. Kept to the studio paint job more or less again.



Spoiler:







Also Pained up Encrusted Thuulac from Mierce to use as a monster in my Fallout RPG. Unlike the Mirelurks or Scorpion I didn't really follow any studio paint job or try to paint it up more realistically--instead I just grabbed some colors I've rarely or never used before and I think it came out pretty well.

Some quick paintjobs for some Feral Ghouls and Blighted ones.

The Blighted ones are just neon paint, airbrused as it's super thin and hard to work with, then I used washes. One lighter green applied more normally and then a darker applied with the figure upside down and left to dry like that for better placed shadows. I also had the translucent glowing ones and applied a darker wash the same way.



I also painted the feral from the same set but I really don't like the FO4 design so really didn't put any effort into them. I also wanted more, mostly for eventual RPG stuff, and so I grabbed some zombiecide stuff on the cheap, trimmed the noses, and painted them up. I probably should apply some pigments to make them dirty, but I don't know how much I care.

The green effect on the Blighted Ones looks brilliant Monkeysloth !

That's a great idea using Zombies from Zombicide for the Ghouls (nose trimmed off is a great tip!) I may have to borrow that one, it doesn't seem right paying through the nose for the FO ones (which really are just a type of zombie..)

There's a specific look, especially for ferals, which are hairless, that I took into account. I had bought a box for general zombies quite a while ago and luckily about half fit that (some I painted are balding but it was easy to deal with since they're PVC).

I agree on the price. I bought it for the glowing ones as, again, I really hate the FO4 Ferals design that I would really hate to buy more to get the more armored versions. But for something like this I doubt we'll ever get non-FO4 versions (unless FO5 is a surprise release in the next year with a new design).

That being said, I would think feral ghouls could be an easy HIPS kit for FWW, back when John was talking about the potential of doing some for the line, but with Modiphius's plastic asperations on hold for probably another year we may never see them due to how far of a production lead you need for plastic. While there are lots of zombie plastics FO Ghouls could easily be distictent enough to have demand outside of the game.

Found some pokemon designed for D&D on a thingiverse account and have printed several now to use with this game and he had a pateron with no backers which I decided to back as a thanks, as he had no tip option set up. Guess he was so happy to have a backer that he asked me what to sculpt and may I present you with my krookodiles:



I've also painted up the original things that drew me to the account, Exeggutor + trex mix:



I love those dumb looking things.

I've got a Gyarados in water printed up, just haven't painted it yet as I don't have anything that can really support it while I paint it unbased. It's no magic carp for sure, as JonWebb can attest to, but I think it might be able to manage to be a threat to my PCs in the RPG game.

Printed up some giant leeches as I wanted to try out some UV resin. Pretty happy with how it looks.

I need to get a few more games in to get familiar enough to make some stats up for some of these things I'm making for FWW RPG and Into the Wasteland.

Wrote up some cards for the leeches above. These really aren't trying to be balanced for the wargame and more something for the RPG but could be used in narrative mode.

Molerat Queen/Giant Molerat painted up. FO4 and FO3 have cut content around Giant Molerats and so when I saw this one from Mierce I decided to get it and paint it up for FWW. Also finally found the charger for one of my wife's cameras so I could get some decent shots.



Spoiler:







Also make up some cards for a Legondary Mole Rat Queen from FO4 (at some point I'll do the FO3 giant molerat version) and decided to make it a turret as the concept art makes the queen look pretty immobile. Phase I is a ranged attacker while Phase II is melee with an aoe centered around the queen. Both versions have far reaching auras to buff creatures and can spawn new molerats. Phase II is kind of an odd build and honestly not sure how well it will work in general as I think certain terrain layouts would make it pretty simple kill as it's melee and while I did add a chance for moving randomly it's defence is really tied to swarming people with spawned molerats.

Spoiler:






Next is according to Art of FO4 the Queens had larger molerat sentries. I had printed and painted these early last year and felt they were a good addition to the official ones as I wanted more for the RPG. The larger ones I'm using as Sentries are for 50mm bases. Probably could have got a bit bigger but they work.



Also made up a card for the sentries and have a scale shot next to the queen.

Spoiler:






I also wanted an upgrade for generic molerats so I printed some from Duncanshaow that have all these bone protrusions and a longer tail and am calling them Bonerats. I also printed out some larger Sentry versions.



As before, scale show against queen and then unit cards.

I'm quite happy how the newer paint jobs panned out. I debated redoing the regular molerats paint jobs as they were the first thing I painted after like almost 8-10 months just doing terrain (sadly not a whole lot to show there outside of what I've posted here) so they were very basic. But I didn't want to really deal with it as they're just mooks.

Well it's a pip pistol he takes care of as there's no rust on it so that must be worth something.

Cool stuff all around, Monkeysloth!

That turquoise 'lurk's color scheme is really nice. And it's great to see the Mierce Molerat. I've been thinking of getting one myself, but it's always been out of stock when I check my online store of choice. But great to see what it looks like painted and alongside other models.

Decided to paint up a Sole Survivor and Dogmeat and ended up with an apirl fools joke (when I actually came up with the concept).

May I present:





The Tiger king model is from Black Site Studio (STL is like a buck). And the Tigers are from Thingiverse. I then added the pipboy to Joe and added googles to one tigers and the head armor to another (I'll upload them to thingiverse as a remix once I go back and thicken some leather straps)

Also tried for some smaller cats but they lost a lot of detail (printed 30% and 50% size, the painted below are 50%). 60% might have been a better size and I ight reprint post improving what I did.

Been a bit since I posted anything here. I've got around 4 different fallout terrain projects going on and haven't really finished enough to feel like I've wanted to share and then got distracted with painting some dragons but I should have more stuff to show off over the next 2 months.

First up is a bunch of terrain from M3Studios that I printed. They made a Ghoul Whale which I thought was pretty funny and wanted to paint it up. Since it was stranded on a beach I decided to do the rest of the lines sandbars/reefs and a strange beach alter. I envisioned more of this all being when the tide was out so I added some plants and other animals as well as water. I also took some liberty with what's a rock as most stuff is sand but I wanted some color variety.

that's a dang nice layout. This is Not a Test looks to be a pretty fun system but everything for the game is always out of stock.

The Wasteworld line is pretty nice. I have those roads already done, and the boat printed to go with the beach stuff I just posed. The plane looks really nice too and looks great in your setup.

Thanks! It's also painted in the livery of the recently defunct Slovenian national airline, which we were bullied into gifting to a German hedge fund that promptly drained it of wealth and sunk it, to go with the usual post-apoc riffing on capitalism.

In an effort to actually have ideas and projects here in the projects thread instead of always just finished stuff (sorry, I'm not generally a WIP person) I've been wanting some NPCs and there's really not a lot that fits the retro feel of fallout. Most post apoc goes more mad max or weird mutation stuff and there's not a lot in the 3d printing realm. I can make stuff via heroforge but the STLs are pretty pricey for background figures/npcs that I have to put effort into printing, cleaning and painting. So I decided to look at the model train realm as FWW is US O scale. As with anything there's variation in scale based off of how the company sculpts and the figures aren't nessaccearly cheap but they are pre-painted and I think that can save me some time.

The line that drew my attention the most is arttista as several threads talked about how they were closest to 1:48. Unlike all the other large lines these are white metal and do come pre-painted, you can get unpainted direct from the manufacturer for a few dollars less. http://arttista.com/

I ordered one painted and an unpainted and first thing that stood out is the colors are more matt and less bright then what you get on the plastics. The height looks pretty good too. He has a prybar that I don't have attached yet. I have another image later on with a standing unpainted and it's pretty on part to the same height at FWW. Eagle eye viewers will also notice something that took me a few mintues to notice. The figures are prepainted but they don't appear to be primed, or are poorly primed, as the paint rubs off some areas very easily. It's easy to work with once you know it's happening (you can see a finger with no paint and a front of a shoe.



So I took the figure and used some contrast paints (skin), washes (shirt/hats) and instant paints and then did some touch up highlights on the skin and over all I think it looks pretty good. The unpainted one was $2 less and had a lot of flash to clean up so if all the prepainted are also cleaned up that's worth the extra money right there. I've still got to paint the prybar as I think I'm going to attach him to some scatter terrain.

I've got to fix up the stick on the hobo as it broken when I was cleaning flash and then I'll paint him up too. It's a very hard tin mix and you really have to put effort into adding pins at the feet too. The height is pretty close to the FWW figure. It looks taller but that's the camera angle. I'll have better pics once everything painted and based.



Overall for $6 and about 10 min of painting I think the pre-painted area probably going to be worth the extra cost. I'm going to order some more from the line this week and might grab some plastics from another line if I can find some prices I'm happy with since I have to get a larger set vs these which I can buy one or two and try out.

got my next order in. Found out why there's a remastered list on the website as some of the earlier figures are closer to 28mm. I pulled out a resin settler to use instead of the based PVC one for easier size comparisons.



I've got a few more I haven't prepped yet as they're various figures that are sitting on the ground or leaning against a wall and I'm trying to figure out what to do with them. Some in the sets I wanted to base normally, like the hobo with the guitar and there's one sneaking and a third running, but then there's one hiding on against a wall looking around a corner. Don't think that would look good based. The others I'll make a small wasteland camp site with some of the sitting hobos and drunks.

I was thinking of repainting the checker board to be Blast Radius until I realized it was a round game board. Probably still do that at some point for a different set I might buy another time.

Another thing I'm exited about is how good the milking woman looks as I've got some brahmin that I want to rebase with her. Just not sure if I want to use the metal one from armorcast or the 3rd printing one that's FO4 style.



I'm leaning towards the scraggly armorcast brahmin as it does fit a bit better with a settlement.

Here's a finished shot of the farmer, hobo and suspicious stranger.



didn't quite do as much as I was wanting over the weekend due to other distractions but I'm now staging a drop in scene--which is one of the things I wanted to get out of these model train figures-- of the checker players. Going to glue them to the clear plastic sheet with some other items, probably old newspapers and the like.

That terrain is probably the best I've seen for fallout. Maybe you should base the playable minis on clear flat bases too? It really takes up the realism a ton. Very clever for the scatter terrain too

Thanks. I feel I need some scattered newspapers and other junk image to print out so better represent trash that tends to be on floors before I feel this is done. Haven't found anything I like yet.

I'm not a big fan of the clear acrylic bases for metal minis, which the model train stuff is, as metal tends to be too heavy and needs pinning to the base.

I think the Brahmin was from an old line called Lancers and Lasers. Armorcast still makes them. Paint to put together though as the molds are showing their age. I had to do a good amount of greenstuff around the heads as there wasn't a flush fit at all.

Decided to jump onto the Plasticville bandwangon after finding a bunch online cheap. This is the rail cart house from the Hobo Jungle. I removed all the internal connectors and glued it together without them and then added a new floor and added some carboard corrugated metal. The other two structures in the set will be done similarly and I'll add some decor later on.





and then the rest of the haul
