Super Mutants

Greetings from the post-apocalypse. Even more Science Fiction models to share (sorry).  This time it is the Super Mutant Faction for Fallout: Wasteland Warfare.  These are your basic Orc/Ogre "big dumb brute" types to bring the appropriate level of smashiness to the game.  In addition to the figures from the basic set, I also picked up the starter set and a commander/heavy gunner set to round them out. 

The skin tones were done with NATO deep green highlighted in VJ Light Cammo green followed by a few washes of military green and dark grey.  I went for a heavy rust effect on most of the armor, as I assume these guys would not be dedicated to regular equipment maintenance. 
Their primary focus is actually melee based, so they also get a selection of boards and sledgehammers for whacking stuff.  Strangely not a single board with a nail in it though...  

That board with a nail in it may have defeated us, but the humans won't stop there. They'll make bigger boards and bigger nails. Soon they'll make a board with a nail so big it will destroy them all!

The clothes are an appropriate mix of tattered rags with mostly subdued tones to go along with the arrested development look of the army. 

The super mutants also come with their own trusty canine(?) companions in the form of these inspiringly named "mutant hounds"  Unlike the mutant models, where you receive different sculpts in the base set and starter box, there appear to be only two castings for the hounds available.  

 Well, I am at least closer to getting done with this sortie into post-apocalyptic miniatures.  Then of course I have some pre and trans-apocalyptic models to finish off as well.  It may be a couple months before I settle back into painting 18th and 19th century models, but who is to say?  We wargamers are easily distracted, especially when our access to actual human opponents has been so drastically curtailed.  


  1. Interesting types, if decidedly not my genre!

  2. We need the world to return to normal so that you can return to historical gaming.
