Walls and so on

It's still post-apocalypse time here at Matt Towers. I've managed to snare Kieron into playing Terminator Genisys, which drives a need for more terrain, which has led me to more of this stuff.

I picked up some more of the Crooked Dice scrapwalls and a junk pile at Vapnartak this year. For once, I actually painted things I'd bought within a fairly short timescale, so here we go!

First, the junk pile. Not sure what the big grey thing is, but look, there's some sort of wheel!

Whatever this is a pile of!
A wheel! Some sort of hose!

Then, the walls...

Corrugated iron and things!

Some sort of machinery and possibly a motorcycle chassis!

A big gate and a tyre!

A big red pipe!
As a sort of bonus, I also finished off a plastic survivor that's been standing around in my painting stuff for a very long time.

He's got flip flops, a can and a gun.
I'm not sure if he's doing well.
I made this by chopping up some of the parts on the Wargames Factory survivors sprue that aren't supposed to fit together, as a sort of protest against how inflexible that set is despite the huge number of parts it has. That was several years ago now that I think about it, but I've painted him now!

Right, that went a bit stream-of-consciousness-y. Now here's the numbers!

Acquired: -6
Painted: 25

You'll notice, because of course you've committed the previous numbers to memory, that the acquired number has gone up by two. That's due to free figures I got by going to Chillcon recently. I don't really know what I'm going to do with them, but they go on the pile so there we are...

Right. That's all for now, but I've got more on the way, so watch out for that!


  1. They look great and packed full of lovely details. The survivor looks perfectly at home behind them.

  2. Good stuff. I think I’m easier to snare into things than you...which is why this post isn’t about Napoleonic British.
