I’ve been very much inspired by Wudugasts “it takes a village” blog post series about civilians in the grim-dark future. As a result I’ve, sort of, made a start on dwellers of HellGate. I say “sort of” because they’re not exactly civilians, more like lost, wandering and creepy ex-servitors and Priest.
I plan on a lot more civvies and have even bought minis from a whole bunch suppliers that I think, with a bit of kitbashing, could fit into the HellGate setting.
This servitor is one of the more weirder and creepier kitbashes/conversions I’ve done. The head is 1/35 scale from a German Tank kit I had. I particularly like the awkward static look of the candle arm. I imagine this servitor to be very old, broken and pitifully sad.
Haha, I told you it was weird.
Next we have another servitor. This one, I imagine, is incredibly violent and aggressive by nature but is just as lost as the candle servitor. He has no real objective and is incredibly twitchy. He lopes around the ruins of HellGate on his spindly mechanical legs shooting randomly. Other times he just stares off into the distant, his eyes flickering and twitching now and then for hours and hours.
He’s a bit top heavy but that kind of works for me in an odd kind of way.
Last we have the priest. He once had quite the audience including King DralRamith but that was a very long time ago. Now he preaches to the shadows. His mind has gone but his faith is stronger than ever before.
I could build weird little dudes all day every day haha but now I’ve turned my hand to a Sci-Fi diorama that I suspect, and hope, that blogger buddies Mark A Morin and Roger (Rantings from under the wargame table) will like a lot. 😉
Hope you’re all doing well.
I’m still trying to catch up on posts from you lovely lot but it’s all a bit mad with work and other commitments at the moment. I’m chipping away though.
