Fast & Furiosa

Now that the Punkapocalyptic KS has ended and the dust is just settling down, I'm bringing another of their minis, 'Imperatrix Rabiosa'. Ahem.

There are some other choices out there (Hasslefree, for example), but I got this one thanks to a friend and I'm so pleased! Resin cast, the sculpt is as detailed and sweet as usual. The tribute is so obvious that I didn't even try to hide it; here's my try:


You can see I miserably failed in replicating the facial paint. That will need to be redone. But for the moment I'm leaving her this way.
I think she needs (or my whole Punkapocalyptic bunch need) some more charming stuff. Yes, I mean machines on wheels. The most obvious being those sold on the Punkapocalyptic web, I'm however hypnotized by the work of those people who build their own. The latest example I can recall is  this beauty (part 1 & part 2) by magnificent Stuart Bannister from The Lost and the Very Damned (go see the stuff this man does!!). For the moment this kind of work is absolutely out of my league, but I recently made a discovery I think I can use for this purpose:

1/43 Diecast French Firemen truck. Not even 10€. Had to do it, you understand me
 I thought I could use it for my Zombicide/zombiewhatever games, but these days I can only think of the possibilities this monster offers...
I don't think I'm going for it in the next weeks, as I'm still buried under pending stuff, but I will definitely have to do something about it...

  4. Lovely paint job dude. I am in two minds as I already own two Furious ladies. Though likely I will probably end up with this one as well at some point though lol

    1. Thank you! The mini is sweet, her confidence/contempt in the pose says it all. It's a wonderful work of sculpt tat defines a character. Real pleasure to paint!

  8. I'm glad there's a not-Furiosa out there, and I like your version! I've never seen a post-apocalyptic fire truck before, but it seems like an obvious choice (despite likely terrible gas mileage). I'll keep an eye out for your conversion :D

    1. Thank you! Well, I think that in these ambientations, efficiency is never an issue when confronted to awesomeness :D :D

  9. Loving your take on Furiosa. I just saw Mad Max: Fury Road not long ago and loved it. Those vehicles in the movie are a real inspiration for us modellers, not to mention the characters like your take on Furiosa. I think I'm going to paint one of my Ork Trukks to resemble the feel of the vehicles driven by the War Boys! :)
