In 2009, I read the “Terminator Apocalypse: Cold War” book describing a struggle of men and machines on the north slope of Alaska. I bought a pile of minis from EM-4 and Copplestone and added a few more to the mix to create the forces. Inuit sled mushers, scavengers, Army Rangers, Snowmobile Gangers, and of course lots of Terminators. I used the “Skank Rules” aka Warriors of the Wasteland.
Arctic Rangers (EM-4/Copplestone Castings)
These EM-4 minis are the elite remnants of the US Army 10th Mountain unit. The hummers are cheaper dollar store scores. Copplestone makes some more lads that are good match with these and add Mortars to the mix. I also have a fuel truck, an armed snow-cat, Blackhawks, Apaches, and Little Birds for support.
These were my first attempt at winter camo – I like’em. Baking soda makes great snow when sprinkled on wet white paint:
– GW Gray Prime
– GW Black Ink
– GW Skull White highlights
– GW Chaos Black & Catachan Green Markings
– GW Dark Angels Green Lens on Helmet
– GW Chaos Black Weapons & Gear
Inuit Mushers and Sled Dogs from Copplestone’s Polar Perils line
Sleds are kit-bashed for post apoc look & much cheaper than buying 4 sleds. The barrels are removable game objectives.
Scavengers from Copplestone Castings Future Wars line
I love these scruffy minis. Really easy to paint, lots of character, and armed to the teeth. Realized once I had played with them a bit that I need some with more normal weapons. I have a on more from EM-4,
Snowmobile Gangers are made with “Swoop Gang” riders form the WOTC Star Wars Game on Hot Wheels Snowtrackers:
Terminators from EM-4, Copplestone, Reaper, and a few customs.
Heroclix custom T-600 and EM-4 T-400s
