Here's the final group of miniatures prepared for my Nephew's set of Mutants and Death Ray Guns. Above we see a Human Leader and a web slinging Mutant.
A Mutant Plant complete with a wicked thorn.
A Pink-haired Android. Her Needler pistol is made from a tooth pick end glued to her hand.
Here they are, playing nice in the ruins.

Here's the second batch of figures I'm preparing for the game, shown here busy playing with their new weapons and mutations.
I went heavy on the flame in this cold winter season. Here is a mutant that can throw flame and a human with a flame thrower.
This robot accessorizes at the local Gas station.
It's a Blue Meanie.
Sign of the times. I might convert it to a "Stop" or better yet "Yield" sign if I have time.
Posed for battle.
Yet another pose.

A handy second story shooters nest.
Ruined buildings and a shell crater.
Rubble and walls.
It's Deer season! Wobot Season! Deer Season!....

Grishnak (shown here wit 'is cleaver at Thud's throat) wins da bar brawl while Bogmire the Petulant slumbers near by.
Da action started wit Bogmire knocking Grishnak over, then Thud throws Bog into Grishnak making a pile of Orcs on da table. Thud and Grish both smashed bottles over Orc head, and Bog thought about throwing a chair, but was hit by a flying Grishnak instead. Grish took a short nap, but woke up, grabbed his brew and came back for more. Bogmire also took a nap, got up and got jumped on by Grishnak and stayed down. Thud, who looked ta be the favorite early on when he kept throwing Orcs into each other, finally took a hard goose egg ta da head and slumped next to a snoring Bogmire. Free drinks fer Grishnak!
We played a three player game which gave us a taste of the rules and anticipation for a brawl with more players.

As a quick side project I am doing up a group of miniatures for Ganesha Games' Mutants and Death Ray Guns, which is basically Gamma World in miniatures. The figures are meant to be x-mas presents for my Nephews, with the side benefit that I'll finally get to play the game and have loads of fun preparing these miniatures. This group is the first half essentially completed. Note, the Deer-man (far left) is not finished. I need to print off the logo of a certain Iowa farm implement manufacturer to paste on his shirt. Nothing runs like a Deere!
A clix figure painted up as a mutant, or mutant animal.
This Void miniature is a human with an Assault Rifle.
Another group shot. The garbage can in the back was my first attempt at sculpting terrain stuff with sculpy done a long, long time ago. The device on the right was one of my first scratch built pieces altogether. The side facing the camera was made from pill packaging.
A clix miniature repainted to represent a human in a hazmat suit.
Another Void miniature as a human hand to hand combat specialist, or perhaps a leader.
John. This dear fellow is hunting for his long lost cousin Buck. Buck is an astronaught that never returned from a mission in outer space. Perhaps Buck will show up in another game. John is a clix figure with a head replacement found at the local craft store.
Robot. Not much of anything was done to this clix figure, just some changes to the paint scheme.
Once the second half of this group is finished I'll post some more pictures, and hopefully of some games as well.

Come 'ear and say dat!

Details of the painted floor and balcony, sans touch up. A mock up for the door and woodwork pattern on the walls are being added here too.
An overview shot of the main bar room.
Even Orcs have to answer nature's call, however, like all things Orc their answer is belligerent (as evidenced by their aim).
Dancing on the bar and jumping off the balcony, it's good to be an Orc.
More woodwork work, primed bar and a completed table can be seen in this shot.

I'm building a bar for a game of Orc bar brawls. For the construction I am following the 2-d layout that came with in the rules. At one end is a balcony for diving off of.
Balcony stairs, plus a look at the square tiles primed and waiting for paint.
Oi! Dat you Romeo?
Tables, all the better fer slammin' yer 'ead into.
Grog. Make it a double.
Overhead with the outer walls pinned in place. The bottom left corner will have 4 privy stalls, while the upper left will house the still.
