From StuartL: Stalkers (25 points)

That countdown clock is kind of intimidating. 

Ok, some more figures completed. In this case, 5 Post Apocalyptic survivors from Lead Adventure miniatures.

These models are all single piece metal castings from Lead Adventure's 'The Last Project' range. They were a little rough around the edges, but cleaned up nicely and look suitably grim and gritty. If you are a video game fan, you may have heard of the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series of games. These games place the player at the heart of the Zone, the area around Chernobyl. Players have to explore the Zone, deal with other Stalkers and avoid the numerous hazards of an irradiated (and worse) area. These models fit the style of the game and it's something I am keen to play out on the tabletop.

I am currently using these models with the rules This Is Not A Test, which provide for a fun skirmish in a nuclear wasteland, though I guess that game is based more on the Fallout PC games than Stalker. I'm going to try adding some of my own modifications to move the game away from the tongue-in-cheek style of Fallout and more towards the "Oh Cr@%! Something is eating my eyeballs" style of Stalker.
All of the models were done up in drab greens, browns and greys from Vallejo and given rough washes of brown and black. After that I highlighted their coats and overalls, but I have generally tried to leave them looking fairly filthy.

So, this lot is another 5x 28mm models for 25 points and a second squirrel in the bag for today.

Right, more models to paint before the deadline!

Lead Adventures do some lovely figures, but none have found their way to my greedy hands. Great post-apocalyptic tones here!
