Fallout: Starter Box Survivors

I picked up the two-player starter for Fallout at the end of 2018, but didn’t actually play a game until late 2019. I’m a total sucker for post-apoc, and this skirmish game scratches that itch nicely. I haven’t tried the campaign or solo/coop modes yet, but just as independent games it plays pretty well.

Sole Survivor

The two-player starter comes with soft PVC models, which has all the issues common to that material. Muddy details, sometimes bendy parts. The sculpted bases are a nice touch, though.

Dogmeat

I seem to have a hard time with realistic animals. I think it’s because you can’t hide behind sculpted details and actually need to paint the fur colors. For once I feel I actually captured something decent.

Enslaved Tech

The Enslaved Tech can be hired by both Survivors and Super Mutants, but since she’s human I’m including him here. His harness gives him more of a Mad Max look, but he’s a bit too scrawny to really pull it off.

Settler

Out of all the Survivors this Settler suffers the most from being in PVC. Most of the detail in the coat is missing, leaving a basic form.

Scavenger

The starter set calls this model another Settler, but the Survivors faction box calls it a Scavenger.

I’ve chosen Survivors as my starting faction, although I’ve got a smattering of other models as loaners or NPCs in some scenarios. I’m looking forward to fleshing out the collection and playing more of the game.
