I’ve been on a bit of a hobby hiatus for the last few months, aside from a few games I have managed to squeeze in.
I finally picked my brush up again in support of the currently active Wreck-Age Kickstarter by Hyacinth games based out of Chicago. The Kickstarter linked below is for some post apoc vehicle models and a corresponding vehicle rules expansion. It currently has 7 days remaining:
One of my gaming buddies is good friends with the game designers and asked me to paint up a dirt bike model available as part of the Kickstarter.
The dirt bike and rider is a versatile two part metal model that is easily customizable for any faction in the game, or for use with other post apoc skirmish games. I will undoubtedly be using this model with my Wreck-age Reclaimers, and in several other capacities. I converted the model I was given with some additional Wreck-age bits and gave it a well weathered paint job. You can see the final result below:
There are several more photos from different angles in the Chicago Skirmish Wargames (CSW) blog post here:
Chicago Skirmish Wargames - Newly Released Wreck-age Models
One of the game designers comments on the post with great detail on the upcoming rules for the biker which look to create some dynamic gameplay and lots of burning wreckage on the tabletop.
CSW has an upcoming Wreck-age campaign planned later this summer so expect to see those painted Reclaimer models from me in the next few months.
