Ground Troops!

I’m not going to have a ton of people on foot for RW/WLF but I’ll need some wacky survivalists, punks, paramilitary types and cultists for this game. Here’s a start:

Low Rent Paramilitary types, left, and Filthy Texas Survivalists, right.

The Low Rent Paramilitaries are Vietnam era miniatures from East Riding, 20mm. They are crew on some support weapons I purchased recently. I just painted them up to look more haphazard, slapdash and using remnant uniform stuff. The Kettenkrad is a Monogram model, modified to be a mobile MG platform using a US water cooled .30 cal machine gun bolted to the platform. The model was colored a dull olive and then some camo highlights with a dark sepia wash and rust. It’s a pretty simple model.

The cowboy hats are from Elhiem Miniatures. They have a range of survivor types– mostly in a Post Zombie Apocalypse context. One group is this gang of Duster-wearing cowboys. Another are wearing full up chem suits. Bizarrely, they also produce the Scooby Doo kids (Velma, Alan, etc.) which fits right in to the Mystery Machine I already have painted up!

The cowboys are four figures, tall and rather slender. I undercoated them an Armory mustard yellow and then highlighted facial features and surface bits like guns, gun belts, shirts, etc. Then a big wash of sepia to filth them up and highlight all the great nooks and crannies, and I was done!

Stay tuned for more Figures. I’ll be painting up the rest of the punks, cultists and what not in the weeks to come.
