Fallout Luddites?


I've been fairly slow at painting this year only finishing ten models, but I have about 80 models that are about 80% done.

First up are two Warlord brand Dacians which will be the leadership models for a unit of Falxmen that I hope to finish this week.

Here are two West Wind priest type models.   They're kinder nacht (child vampire) hunters.  Next to them is an old GW Bretonian spearman, whose missing a shield.

Lastly are 5 GW mentally unsound clerical types all from about 2004.  Left to right:  Empire flagellent, Bretonian battle pilgrim, another flagellant, Mordheim witch hunter, and Empire warrior priest.

I don't play warhammer games, but have tons of painted priests and flagellants.  I think they'd make a great Fallout/post apocalyptic gang, which I've named Luddites.  Their lack of firearms could be because they've decided that guns and technology are the evil source of man's apocalypse.  They must cleanse the world of non-believers by thumping them with blunt objects.

They look like hippies bringing books back to the post apocalyptic library.

  1. Very cool work, James. Love that Dacian musician - tall enough to be a standard. Also, those priest/monks look good - don't forget you can use them in both Medieval and Napoleonic too. Terrain is looking superb too. Can you swing by for Enfilade! in May? Dean

  2. Splendid work Sir, love the priests particularly.

  3. great work I agree the priests are top draw
    Peace James

  4. Great captions, JC should be leading the mob.

  5. Nice idea with using these guys as religious crazies in a Fallout inspired setting they work well and they look great.
