Seb came across on Saturday and helped me get some more nomad figures prepped. Add in some painting time and things are coming along quite nicely. All things going to plan I should have the nomads finished long before the display game at Reveillie (!)
Which is good, as my brain is wandering about the setting we started building, coming up with all sorts of ideas... The heavily armed trade caravans of the Neu-Hanseatic League, wandering London Engineers seeking lost archeotech, scavengers, savage tribes, giant subterranean worms (tremors style), landships, mutated dwellers in long lost catacombes, the list keeps going on. From my perspective, I can see masses of scope for steampunkish post-apocalypse adventures, with heavy hints of Mortal Engines but with everything from Indiana Jones (archetechologist being chased through a ruined sewer system by misshapen troglodytes) to Beowulf (a nomad tribes camp is being plagued by a monster of prodigious capabilities and a wandering hero is in town to help) via His Dark Materials Trilogy (there's got to be space for a mercenary Texan aeronaut!?). And heavns know what Seb will come up with... (although he has already confessed to being heavily influenced by Darwins World)
Anyway, enough waffle. On to the WiPs!
