From SebastianR - Scavenger (and cuddly robotic horror) (7 points)

My first stab at the unambiguously post-apocalyptic here, with this guy.

He's a scavenger, he has a rusty pipe, an a la mode scavenged wardrobe and he is ugly as shit.

I painted him with colours that just happened to be on my palette while painting other items. Other than the neon orange, a recent acquisition from Model Box. I decided to give him a modern climbers rope and somehow it managed to throw the entire scheme off. Not that that's a huge problem, he's a post-apocalyptic scavenger, not a hipster.

So my mother says I'm hard to buy presents for. It shouldn't be that difficult, I give her access to my amazon wish list, and a request not to buy novelty key-chains or tat.

Come play with us human...
With that in mind, here's a tatty, novelty key-chain that she got me for Christmas. I decided to re-purpose it as a miniature, perhaps an animatronic mascot at a long abandoned theme park, or even just a piece of art.

It lights up it's eyes and makes a tinny meowing noise when you press the button on it's head. Just what you want going off in your pocket all the time. This is where our planets precious finite resources are going people...

Come play with us... forever...

I'm not expecting any points for it as I did not actually repaint the model, merely base it.

Hoi there Sebastian, well I can feel your pain, as I guess will most wargamers, I think we are basically easy to cater for in the presents department since we are always happy with gift certificates from any Figure manufacturing company. Anyway back to the figure: it really has come out pretty well! I like the casual stance and your paintjob really does enhance the total effect of it. The rust effects on the pipe in his hand are well done indeed! So that's 5 points for the Scavanger and since I share your pain I will give you 2 for the Electrokitty ;-)


  1. "Fast Pussycat, Kill, Kill"

    Nice work Sebastian :)

  2. Blimey, but that's a creepy cat... Great work on the Scavenger, Sebastian, well done!

  3. Hypno Cat! Great work. cheers

  4. Nice scavenger, freaky cat!
    Best Iain

  5. "Cuddly robotic horror" - call in the Mechanicum, they will promptly elevate the thing to diety status!

    Well done, and totally hilarious - great stuff Sebastian.

  6. Nice work - Cats are inherently evil so the electric hypno-kitty seems like a plausible post apocalyptic happening.

  7. Well done Sebastian’s Mum!
