Painted a Mechanoid

Or "P.A.M." Not happy at all with this one. Looks muddy, washed out, lacks detail.

Tinker Tom the Wasteland's Son

Here's Tinker Tom, a Railroader mechanic. I like his skin tones, and his clothing looks okay. I should have painted the base white, then dry-brushed the brick surfaces so that I would have had contrasting mortar lines. Live and learn.

The Little Drummer Boy

Here's Drummer Boy, another Railroader from Fallout 4. Like several of my minis, this one looks better on the table than it does in a close-up photograph taken with mediocre-to-bad lighting conditions.

They Call Him Mister Tims

Here's another member of Fallout 4's Railroad faction, Mr. Tims. I used contrast paints for his suit, then drybrushed on some highlights; the model looks better in real life than it does in this photo.

Doctor Carrington

Here's Doctor Carrington, and only now so I see that I forgot to paint his tie. Unless he deliberately chose a white tie to go with his white shirt and white jacket. Well, he's a scientist, so who knows?

Desdemona

Here's Desdemona, leader of the Railroad faction in Fallout 4. For a challenging figure, I think I did all right here. I like the base, her vest, her hair and features, and the weapon is...all right. It's playable, at least.

Gunner Conscript

No wonder this guy is angry; he's been conscripted into the service of the violent and deadlyk Gunners mercenary faction. Face and hair are okay here; weapons passable, base not bad.

Another Gunner Private

Here's another Gunner private. Face and hair are terrible here, weapon and outfit merely passable. Not one of my better efforts.

Gunner Private

Here's a private from my small squad of Fallout: Wasteland Warfare Gunners. Face is okay, hair decent, and I like that the armor plating stands out from the rest of her outfit. The dried mud base is all right, too. But still - needs greater definition.

Gunner Sergeant

Here's a Gunner Sergeant to help ensure that the Gunner Commander's orders are well-executed. I'm a bit happier with this model; I feel his various parts are better differentiated, and his face is actually reasonably human.

Gunner Commander

Here's one of a handful of Gunners I painted over the weekend. This one's clad in a set of power armour, sans helmet. I regret the dark brown I chose for the base. The Gunner's face is okay, and the armor's not bad. And yet the model still lacks that sense of depth and realism I keep striving for, even after several retries on this figure.

Grognak's Greatest Foe

At right, we have Grognak, the blonde barbarian featured in comic books scattered around the post-nuclear holocaust world of the Fallout computer games. I bought two of these models because they make great standard barbarian archetypes, but wound up thinking of Grognak's world and the enemies he might face. Many great heroes eventually face their mirror image, so I came up with Kangorg, Grognak's evil doppelgänger. But for their hair and clothing, you'd never know the difference--until they act.
