A Familiar Face Stumbles In From The Wasteland

Whelp, I've been away from this thing for over 5 years!   I haven't done much in the way of creating terrain or converting minis during that time.  However, a few months ago I did actually get off my butt and create something, so I finally figured I should post it here.   I originally talked about this at the website Post Apoc Wargames 

So basically I built a water truck that travels the wasteland selling, well...water.

I took a 1/43 scale oil(?) truck, and I had a bin full of car/armor bits from Ramshackle. I have to say that I'm a little disappointed in the Ramshackle pieces - the batch I got is made of VERY brittle resin, and I've snapped a few pieces in two. But then again in a post-apoc world things are supposed to look broken, so I guess that's okay.

I decided to change out the thin squidly little front tires with the bulkier Ramshackle ones.  I'm not worried about the back tires - I'm going to have them partially covered with armor.

All my Post-Apoc stuff gets hit with a textured spray paint.  It helps to heighten the rusty effect.

Some basic painting and shading:

And now for the big's a Starbucks coffee truck, not a water truck!  People will do without many things in the dystopian future, but coffee isn't one of them.

Hope you enjoy.  It was actually nice to be creating again!
