These are some of the data items sent to Utopia High Command by the Expedition team currently setting up in the ruins of Matt Black City.

Halfpintskis:


These stable mutations have been spotted out in the ruins. They appear to be tribal versions of those guarded by Brittannia's Black Daggers company. It is thought that they may be decendants of the people who lived in this city before the end.

Posted Image

They live in the rubble zones of the city and raid for food. However they can be easily won over by gifting or tradeing for food.

The Halfpintskis live in rubble caverns beneath the ruins in a settlement they call "Halfpintington". These mutants are known to help those lost or in trouble near their settlement. However do not cross them as they are well armed and can be aggressive.

I bought these minis as a impulse buy many years ago (because you have to have tribal machine gun toting hobbits! ) and now I can't recall the manufacturer.

Squat Bikers.

These Squats are not from the usual settlement of Govin but are freelance gang of engineers.

Posted Image

They roam from settlement to settlement trading their skills for supplies. There settlement in the ruins is called Hammer town. This is a good place to trade for vehicles.

The figures are old 40K Rogue Trader Squat bikers/Engineers guild.

Headshot Armaments:

Hailing from the Liberty City Ruins, Headshot Armaments started making pipe rifles which they traded with locals. They moved into repairing weapons and moved into weapon building. The company also specialises in munitions manufacture.

Posted Image

The company hires Stalker bands or organises missions to find old pre end weapons and equipment. They then refurbish them and trade them on. As a result the company found itself attracting raiders after free weapons. This has lead them to equip and arm their employees.

Heeding the call Headshot Armaments moved to the ruins of Matt Black City. Looking around the company decided that the township of Wastetopia would be a good place to set up. Added security provided by the Warlord and his Wasteocrates is an attraction. Plus the Warlord demands reasonable tribute of one decent weapon or armour a month and a weekly tribute of ammunition.

The Warlord likes the Headshot being set up in Wastetopia as it will attract traders and a weapons manufacturer would be handy in an assault on the town.

The minis are a mix of old 40K RT Squat, Plastic Space Marine conversion and Space Lords figures. This faction will be growing with time.

Immortan Ork:

30 miles south of the ruins in the wastelands of the hell zone lies a settlement built around what appears to be a old world aquifer. The leader of this settlement is a old mutated Trog known as Immortan Ork. The Trog has survived here for a long time. He was here even when the Hellzone was too toxic for anything else to live.

Posted Image

Posted Image

He and his Warboys terrorise the wastelands to the south of the ruins in souped up vehicles.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Immortan Ork would contest the Matt Black Trog's position in the city ruins but his Warboys are deeply superstitious of the ruins and cannot be coaxed or bullied to go more than a mile into the old mega city.

The chances are that it would be suicide to contest the Matt Black Trog as his Trogs outnumber the Warboys.

Immortan Ork is a based on a current 40K Ork Nob with a heavy amount of customisation. The mask was made to look more Orky than the Mad Max Fury Road character. The Warboys are GW Gorkamorka Digganobs painted in a Warboy style.

Man that's a lot of impressive work! I'm partial to the Squats (always been a big fan of dwarfs), and Immortan Ork is just plain bad #$%.

Cheers Joe. :)

Meanwhile a mutie bounty hunter walks into Wastetopia looking for work.

Posted Image

I wonder if he will find work?

The figure is a rebased Clix Johnny Alpha (2000AD Strontium Dogs).

Spotted out in the ruins...a large Verman mutant. The fact it has metal bands and shackles indicates that it may have been a pit beast (gladiatorial combat is a popular sport in a lot of settlements). The question is, did it get loose or was it freed?

Posted Image

Is this beast an indication of other Vermen living in the tunnels under the ruins?

The miniature is a old GW Skaven Rat Ogre, I found this figure cheap on ebay many years ago. The paint is as I bought it. As it was based on a square base with the traditional GW park green basing, I rebased it. The purpose of this figure is to act as a bullet magnet for my Verman gangs.

Brittannia city have founded a colony in the ruins called "Mirandatown". The detachment also feature power armored troops.

Posted Image

This is a specialist technologist who goes out with the power armoured troops and helps identify the arcane items to be removed from the ruins.

This figure is a old 40K RT era space marine specialist.

A few more recruits for the Warlord's Wasteocrates gangs in the township of Wastetopia.

Posted Image

A tough wasteland lady and a short range sharp shooter who covers the Warlord's back when out waving at the hordes of Wastetopia.

The chick is from Foundry Miniatures and the sharp shooter comes from Ramshackle games. Sadly the barrel had snapped off the rifle

Posted Image

Meet Squeek and Snitch. Squeek is the Warlord's advisor about the Vermen of the Brood that the big man is trying to form an alliance with. Snitch is the Warlord's spy out in the township. Ratlings are naturally stealthy and it lends to Snitch's job of snooping about.

Squeek is a old plastic Skaven with a shotgun modification. Sneak is a old Warhammer Halfling. I converted him back in the late 80's to fit into my Rogue Trader games by adding a laser pistol.

Meet Mr Hanky. A living pile of muck. Rumor has it that it escaped from a outhouse someplace. Don't get too close besides getting muck all over he may be radioactive too.

Mr Hanky comes from Ramshackle games mutants line.

A guy in a suit of old power armour walks into Wastetopia looking for a drink. The armour has come from several sets and has many custom painted parts.

Posted Image
Meet Captain Bustard who leads the Bunker Bastards, a team of pre war bunker hunters. They find the bunkers and break in, looting what they can. They then move to the nearest town to spend their loot. Most of the team have suits of power armour.

This figure is a slightly customised old plastic 40K RT era space marine.

Meet Dead Eye, he watches from the tower on the Headshot Armaments compound. Anyone making off with the merchandise cops a bullet to the head.

Posted Image

Dead Eye is a figure from the Nuclear Renaissance range by Ramshackle Games. The rifle barrel snapped off in a kitten incident so he has a carbine.

Whilst many townships do not allow scavengers Wastetopia gets a a fair bit of trade from them. The Warlord's guards keep a close eye on them as they tend to determine drunk, cause trouble, cheat and steal anything not bolted down.

Posted Image
The figure is a Copplestone Casting Scavenger.

Beyond the towns deep in the ruins and wastelands beyond Scavengers loot easy places leaving the more dangerous places to the Stalkers and recovery teams. The Scavenger's also attack any easy targets such as wounded stalkers or merchants. Not all encounters with Scavengers are bad. There are stories of them trading or coming to help people in distress. Despite this they are considered to be a hazard by many.

Headshot Armaments Heavy Hitter

Over the years the boys at Headshot Armaments have come across several bits of old military technology. With a bit of work this old Dreadnought suit was repaired and brought back to life. This walking tank is fitted with two power fists and four bolt guns. Headshot realized that this piece of tech would be bad news in the wrong hands. So they keep it to defend the stock at the factory or Wastetopia when called upon.

Posted Image
The model is a old 40K Rogue Trader era Imperial Dreadnought.

In Utopia city a special team of power armored Magistrates are being assembled. Their task is to head to the Matt Black City Ruins and support the team of Magistrates based there.

Posted Image

The figures are old 40K RT era metal Space Marines, just as they started adding older power armor to the range. The color scheme is based on the Utopia Magistrate uniform.
