First of the three characters in the Boston Companions set to see paint is the X6-88 Courser.

Very quick and simple paint job here, the coat is Game Colour Extra Opaque Heavy Charcoal mixed with Game Colour Shadow grey for highlighting.

Vault suits. Vault suits never change. Well, they have a bit but they are certainly iconic!

This is an expansion for the Survivors faction that I just had to get and was fun to paint up. These will be good for a Vault themed list and as AI scenario characters.

I had fun with this set! Elder Maxson in his padded jacket is one of my favourite sculpts so I had been looking forward to it.

The power armoured figure is also Elder Maxson, but could easily be used as a regular Brotherhood of Steel Paladin.

The third figure is Lancer Captain Kells and was another nice sculpt to paint up.

It just wouldn’t be Fallout without a Vault to discover, would it?

This is 3d printed with polyfiller, sand and cork added for texture/gap filling.  It will sit on a board edge for scenario purposes and possibly combined with my battlesystems card interiors terrain if I want to do a Vault Interior.

I am considering knocking out some rocky cliff face pieces to go alongside it at some point to create a more substantial board edge/ rocky protrusion. Time will tell!

I have had this FDM 3d print sat about for awhile needing something done with it.  It was a rough print (I think my brother’s printer had some nozzle issue when this was done) so I decided to half bury it and weather the crap out of it!

I didn’t want to spend too long on it so slapped on a Vallejo Jade Green bascoat, then did a very crude highlighting/faded paint pass by mixing the green with some bonewhite.

Then I liberally drybrushed gunmetal over it, followed by Typhus Corrosion and Ryza Rust, then finished with drybrushing plate mail silver.

That’ll do, a mangled old wreck for the Wasteland!

And with that, I’m calling these done and moving on.  The barrels have been rusted up with some Typhus Corrosion & Ryza Rust, and I tried to add a bit of glow to the radioactive fungi.

The goopy water is AK Interactive’ Swamp Water effect.  Which funnily enough is a thick goop!

Some time ago now I did a test piece for toxic goo pits intending to do some more for a toxic dump themed board.

Now I am finally getting around to making more!

Also I have a pretty rough 3d print of a Modiphius Corvega car STL which I’m half covering in rubble (my brother’s printer had issues that day) and a Vault Entrance which I think came off Thingiverse.

Another piece done, the Derelict Mansion from Sarissca Precision’s Marshport range is ready to go.

I have skipped the interior for now, but may come back to it later if I find it gets used.

Terrain time!  This MDF kit is from Sarissca Precision’s new Marshport range, which is obviously great for Fallout.

I primed it grey (using TTCombat’s new Sprue Grey rattle can, quite happy with the coverage) then went to town dry brushing on cheap and cheerful art shop acrylics (from The Works if you are in the UK.  I put them on with make up brushes, which are also cheap and cheerful.

I layered up with browns through ivory, some grey looking for the weathered look and even straight up white to pick out details and get some contrast.

I finished up by sealing with a Matt spray then breaking out the model mates (now Dirty Down I think) to really grubby it up.

I have a Derelict Mansion to do next, so the warm up is done!

I decided to do a bit of scratch building and test out an idea I had to make some toxic swampy pools for my table.  Because when you have all those rusty radioactive barrels, stuff leaks!

Today we have something a little larger for the table, the Lexington Building by TTCombat.  This is another thing that has sat in the backlog far longer than intended!

I have added some extra details using cork chippings for rubble and some resin ‘alien plants’ again from The Square.  I thought these resembled the mutated flora you will find throughout the world of Fallout growing in decaying ruins everywhere.

Barrels! So many rusty yellow barrels...

If you have played a Bethesda Fallout game you will probably recall that there is something of an obsession with yellow barrels.

They are everywhere, leaking radioactive toxic waste all over the environment.  So I found a pack to litter my gaming tables with!

Like the missile silo, I bought these at the Colours show from a little company called The Square.  Honestly they were pretty rough resin casts but they were also cheap so can’t complain too much I guess.  I did do a bit of rough greenstuff work on some air pockets and barrel rims, I didn’t worry about the finish as I was going to weather the hell out of them anyway.

These were spray primed with Army Painter Demonic Yellow.  Next I painted the earth in an earthy brown and dry brushed up using Bacchus basing kit paints to my Wasteland desert look.

I added the stripe with Vallejo Ivory (again not worrying about being neat) then weathered.

These were slathered with a liberal but watered down covering of Citadel Typhus Corrosion followed by Ryza Rust.  I the  dry brushed a little bit of Army Painter Plate Metal Silver over them.

As a final touch I painted on a few dribbles of leaking green ooze using Vallejo Scorpion green.  It’s the shame colour I use on the Super Mutants to get that vibrant toxic look Gerry found so shocking. 😉

As some of the casting had left the odd crack or air bubble I had a half assed go at addressing, I turned some of those defects into splits and leaks in the barrels.
