In this case the courier very much did deliver and he managed it without getting shot in the head, buried in a ditch, and left to trawl the wasteland looking for revenge!

Very exciting and couldn’t wait to get stuck in!

Some initial test painting of the NCR core box. Was a fairly frustrating session in the end for a number of reasons, and I wasn’t sure about the outcome but if in doubt, place them alongside the unpainted ones and they look a lot better!!

The Fallout New Vegas models from Modiphius have dropped so it’s time to return to this project to add the lovely new goodness!

First thing to do is drop into this project the final pics from last year’s Spring Clean Challenge project, as that one is closed, and this is the ongoing Fallout project.

Let’s just dump these in here before getting onto the new stuff!

Liberty Prime arrived and everything else immediately got swept aside. My goodness it’s big!

In terms of reference material, Liberty Prime in the video game has a few looks, but this is roughly what I’m going for. Perhaps a bit cleaner as whilst this looks quite rusty, it’s really more lighting.In terms of reference material, Liberty Prime in the video game has a few looks, but this is roughly what I’m going for. Perhaps a bit cleaner as whilst this looks quite rusty, it’s really more lighting.

Main painting steps were quite simple:

1. Prime Mournfang Brown spray (GW rattle can)

2. Reverse zenithal (upward) airbrush of Army Painter Dark Tone to darken shadows

3. Shallow but slightly downward zenithal airbrush of Forge World Valdor Gold

4. 45 degree zenithal airbrush of Vallejo Steel

5. Airbrush Army Painter Strong Tone mostly into shadows to reinforce them but also some randomly to grubby it up a bit.

6. Ushabti Bone mixed with a little silver for the bombs

7. Balthasar Gold for the coils and a few random other details

8. Weathering powders to create rust effects. Mainly Forge World rust colours but also a random mud one. I just scoop some out into a jar lid, grab an old brush and just mash it on. The varnish step later will fix it in place.

That’s basically it for Prime himself apart fromr the glow effects to come later.

For the base, I went for the same technique as my regular bases, it’s just a lot bigger! Seriously, this think is basically a discus.

I painted the whole thing GW Baneblade Brown then blocked in the first Red, Grey and Silver to come to hand. I then washed the Red Rocket parts with Nuln Oil and the rocks with Agrax Earthshade.

Once dry I then randomly blobbed on some ink washes. 6:1 water to ink. Brown, Sepia and Skin wherever felt right. The skin gives a rusty effect, the brown a dirty effect and sepia somewhere in between. All over the base.

Once dry a light drybrush of GW Zandri Dust, mostly over the ground,  very lightly on the items.

Then the same mashing on of the same weathering powders used above but much more liberally to make it really dusty, rusty, dirty.

For the glow effects I started with a mix (50/50 ish) of Vallejo Electric Blue and GW Nihilakh Oxide, and gradually added white over several passes more and more focussed on the centre of the light source.For the glow effects I started with a mix (50/50 ish) of Vallejo Electric Blue and GW Nihilakh Oxide, and gradually added white over several passes more and more focussed on the centre of the light source.

With the core set all painted, my brother came round last night to get some basic games on.

There’s a bit of set up required to get the right bits and pieces together for each scenario but once set up it’s all Fallout. Very thematic and on point with the feel of the video game. The win conditions are very challenging and make you want to try the scenario multiple times. It’s a very cleverly designed game and really captures the Fallout feel!
