Fallout: Heroes of Sanctuary Hills (Male Sole Survivor, Dogmeat Scout, and Codsworth)

The Heroes of Sanctuary Hills box for Fallout Wasteland Warfare adds a three-pack of characters, including alternate stat cards for the Sole Survivor and Dogmeat.

Male Sole Survivor

The Sole Survivors get the classic blue vault jumpsuit. Instead of leather armor pads, like the starter box Sole Survivor, I went with metal. I’m much happier with the paint job on this one.

Dogmeat Scout

Dogmeat gets a cool bandana and goggles. The bandana is blue to match the Sole Survivor’s jumpsuits.


Codsworth gets pretty heavy weathering. It’s tough wandering outside for who knows how many decades.

Fallout: Wasteland Vermin (Mole Rats, Radroaches)

The Wasteland Vermin box contains a bunch (9 altogether) of little annoying guys to get in your warband’s way.

Mole Rats (group)

My one complaint for this box is that they’re all single pose. I wish there had been something different, at least for the mole rats.

Radroaches (group)

The radroaches got a couple of color variations just to keep things exciting.

Glowing Radroaches (group)

I also did two of the radroach bases as the glowing variety. I decided not to do a glowing mole rat. There’s no card for one yet, and if there ever is one I can always get another box of the rats.

Fallout: Boston Companions (Piper, Cait, and X6-88 Courser)

The Boston Companions box adds another three named characters to the Survivors faction.


Cait is my favorite of the bunch. Her pose projects power, although trying to actually use either weapon like that probably wouldn’t be too effective.


I think Piper is my least favorite of the set. The purple jacket came out funny, and the pose looks awkward. At least she has a brownie camera, although hers has faded to gray.

X6-88 Courser

I went with a raw ceramic look for Courser’s weapon, similar to my Genestealer Cult hybrids.

And with these models, the galleries now cover 1000 distinct models.

Resurrectionists: High Society (Dead Dandies and Dead Doxies)

Since the GenCon Miss model this year was an alt Seamus, I figured I ought to get some of his friends. Fortunately, the High Society box was available for prerelease. Sweet! Unfortunately, they ran out and my box was significantly delayed. It did come eventually, so here we are.

Dead Dandy (teacup)

I used these models as an opportunity to borrow a friend’s collection of contrast paints from Games Workshop and play with the new product. There wasn’t a good undead flesh option in the collection, so I tried one of the grays here. I disliked it enough to go back to my standard recipe for the rest.

Dead Dandy (monocle)

I used a simple technique:

  1. Zenithal prime white over black
  2. Apply contrast paint over sections, in a single coat
  3. Highlight with regular paints from my collection, mostly Reaper.
Dead Dandy (book)

I’d call it pretty successful overall. At nearly $8 a bottle it’s a tough sale, but it was certainly fast with pretty good results.

Dead Doxy (blue)

I don’t expect to switch over entirely, but I have bought a few to use when it feels like the right tool.

Dead Doxy (red)

I already had a transparent red Bete painted, way back in the day nominally to go with the nightmare Tara crew. I don’t love the paint job on it, though, so maybe the new one will find some use someday.

High Society (group)
