Corporate Incomes - Mercenary outfit

Finally finished my second PA faction this time a Mercenary outfit going by the company name Corporate Incomes. There are several mercenary groups operating out of New Denver, some with more morals than others, working as security or muscle for the corporations or free lancing as hired guns to the Badlands communities.

Corporate Incomes is a small but highly professional outfit consisting of just six personal. Corporate incomes specialize in hostage rescue and retrieval of valuable items topping up their income with running protection details on corporation wasteland convoys.

Here we see the outfit dressed for wasteland operations. As well as the three members introduced here http://jonswargames.blogspot.co.uk/2012/01/corporate-incomes.html
I've added at the top Big Joe the outfits captain. Joe is a hard bitten ageing veteran whose seen it all and also loves firearms including his rocket launcher "Betty".Next is John Mambo the youngest and most reckless member of the group who likes to collect, watch and model himself on old 20th century action movies from before the final days. Last up we have Lucy Pavlichenko the unit sniper and crack shot.

Also there are a few shots of one of the outfits wasteland cruiser vehicles used in convoy protection, scouting and retrieval missions.

Hope Falls extra pictures

Just a few more pictures of Hope Falls. Someone on the PA wargames forum pointed out there were no miniatures in my first set of pictures to give any scale. I thought that was a fair point so I thought I'd add a couple of pictures. For refrence the miniatures in the pictures are 28mm Hasslefree figures.

Cheers Jon

Hope Falls - Mountain top Mutant Shanty town

Well my mutant shanty town is finally finished this is probably the biggest terrain piece I've ever built the whole thing just took on a life of it's own and I just kept adding stuff until my original idea of a big hill with a couple of shacks on it got left far behind.

Anyway I've named this little town Hope Falls (after the waterfall). In my imaginary PA world Hope Falls is nestled on the east side of the Rockies north of (New) Denver. Before the apocalypse the mountain, and its caves and waterfall, was a popular destination with teenagers, courting couples and tourists. When the end of days came a number of locals took to the caves for shelter and became the decedents of today's population of mutants.

Below are a load of pictures of Hope Falls with a few captions by way of explanation. First off a few general pictures of the whole town

Main Entrance
There is only one easy way into town and that is over an old foot bridge above a mountain river whose source is some where below the mountain. Once over the bridge there are the town gates before entering the town proper.

Tall peak

The town is built around two peaks. Tall peak (the taller of the two) has a watch tower ( with alarm bell) built onto it along with a couple of housing shacks and a couple of watch/fighting platforms overlooking the main route up to the town gates. Tall peak is connected to fall peak by a foot bridge high above the town

Fall peak
Fall peak is the second peak which has a pool and waterfall fed from an underground spring. Fall peak is also home to the towns wind generator which provides limited electricity. and a couple more housing shacks. One of the housing shacks also doubles as a bunker/fighting platform complete with a spring powered spear gun to help defend the town.

Junk Row

Below Fall peak is junk row a set of housing shacks. The area lives up to it's name as the residents generally throw their rubbish down the mountain below their shacks.

The Chop'ouse

Cannibalism is a way of life for the mutants of Hope Falls and the chop'ouse doubles up as both a prison and food preparation area. Captives and food being pretty much the same thing to the mutants.

Boss Jagi's home

Boss Jagi leader of Hope Falls has laid claim to the large cave under falls peak which acts as his home/throne room and town meeting hall.

The Church

Below tall peak is another cave that acts as the community church. Lead by the preacher the mutants carry on strange relegoius practices based on a a damaged bible and old half forgotten myths and legends. the curch is also home to a non human mutant.......

So there it is Hope Falls hope you like it. I think at some stage I may make some free standing shacks to place around the bottom of the mountain. I also want to make some matching river sections as the mountain stream at present doesn't go anywhere. In the mean time I need to crack with some smaller (much smaller) post apocolyptic scatter terrain for the rest of the gaming table.
