Since finishing my 28mm Spaceport in October, I have been working on a 28mm post apoc desert community located between LA and Las Vegas. Maybe I'll call it Midpoint… haven't given that a lot of thought. My interest in this grew out of work I had seen done by LAF members involved in a game called Atomic Café. What I saw drew me in and for about a decade now I have been collecting the pieces… figures, vehicles, buildings, etc… and in October of 2017 I began painting. So far I have more than 30 buildings and trailers (there will be a trailer park… with pink flamingos), and now I'm working on the vehicles… armored and otherwise. I thought I would post a few vehicle pictures of some of the more modified vehicles I've recently completed (note small magnet on trash truck gunner's bottom). If you would like to see more I have been keeping a running photo log on my website's Weekly Workbench section (lots of pictures and a weekly write-up… just click for the slide show of each week). I've even added "A Look Back" piece on the Workbench from October 27, 2017 in order to show all the buildings previously completed for this project (lots of Plasticville, K-Line, and a couple of the pieces from the Cars Movie/Flo's V8 Café and the Radiator Springs Curio shop). If you are interested, you can check out my Weekly Workbench at warin15mm.comhttp://theminiaturespage.com/

I've tried to post multiple pictures but the system has defeated me. Hope you will check more of them out by going to my Weekly Workbench at warin15mm.com

You could call the 8mm post apoc desert community located between LA and Las Vegas "San Bernardino", the name of the existing desert community. Alternatively, you could call it Santa Carla, where the only problem is all the vampires.

Nicely done!

A funky little speck of nothing exists between Barstow and Vegas along I-15 called: Zzyzx. It was so named so as to be the very last entry of cities and towns in the USA. Some cult built a hotel there, and it was eventually abandoned.

Always liked that name though!

Of course there is always Barstow. It's not Hell, but you can see it from there.

Vey much into your somewhat gritty painting style on those vehicles….

Excellent work, Mr!!
