Prepping (for the nuclear holocaust)

Like every good prepper, I don’t want to enter the post-apocalyptic nightmare of the post-nuclear war world without being ready. One of my learnings from my 5 Parsecs campaign is that if you have too much to do in between missions, that can lead to large gaps in progress. I recently rolled an enemy consisting of 9 “punks”. That took some work to find, build and paint the models, and led to lots of opportunities for distraction!

Having said that, I have so many unbuilt and unpainted Fallout models that if I wanted to wait until they were all painted before starting the campaign…well…it would never get started. But I want to make it as easy as possible.

First bit of prep is consolidating all the cards and tokens into one place. I bought this accessory from Folded Space some months (years?) ago and finally got round to installing it. It turns the original game box into a full storage solution. Worked a treat!

There’s still a bit of campaign prep to do, including working out what the starting conditions will be, but as is the way with Fallout it’s likely it’ll start by emerging from a vault, which gives me a bit of focus in terms of determining what models I need to prioritise to give me options in the early game. Vault dwellers!

Another element of prep is getting all the various scenario documents, expansions etc organised. One of the downsides of the Covid-19 pandemic was that it severely impacted the distribution of physical product. But the legends at Modiphius kept the content coming via PDFs. I lost track a little bit, but with the aid of an online printing company, I’m getting everything spiral bound and ready to use as a menu for the campaign.
