Muties! (Pt. 2)

The project goes on and on, and I think it's time to look what I have, as I think I reached the 50% milestone, at least on the converting side of the work.

You will see I attempted no visual coherence or a theme here. They are just wasteland mutants from here and there, all they have in common is that they are outcasts from a society that hates them as much as fear them. Some of them have pilgrim robes, some have industrial worker outfits, some only some raggedy clothes over them. Each one carries a story, but it doesn't matter out there. On the wastelands, you adapt yourself or die.

Let's go then:

With this I have one of each type. Now I have another set of identical sprues (this isn't even close to an end!!) and of course the Goblin King. For the second round I'll try more complex conversions, so there won't be two identical minis. I may think of some special stuff for them. Dinosaur riders? Mad Max cars? Ahhh, decisions, decisions...

  2. Excellent work! I like the idea of Mad Max cars, sort of like Necromunda outlanders... But giant lizards or some other beasts of burden would give them a nice feral give.... Looking forward to more!

  4. Aw man, these are so good - best use for the Escape from Goblin Town set that I have ever seen. Can't wait to see a lick of paint on 'em! As for mounts - creatures or vehicles? Hmmm... tough call... I think creatures... Have you seen these? https://antediluvianminiatures.wordpress.com/2015/12/14/shop/

    1. Thanks! They have some strange PA quality, you can do almost anything and they'll still work.

  8. Wow, those are great! How are you thinking of painting them? Pallid creatures of the night? Sunburnt cancerous wretches?

    For your second set, a different type of weapon would probably help to set them apart (tau arms and guns?)

    1. Thank you! Hmm, my first thought was the pale approach, but now that you say it, maybe something more colourful would work as well, if not even better. Hmm...
      Still unsure of what I will do with the rest. I saw a diplodocus toy yesterday that boosted up my imagination for a walking fortress; kind of a post apoc mûmak. So I may use the whole bunch of remaining muties on the beast!Hm. Still to be seen...
