Since hosting a large Fallout game at Oldhammer day this year I have been keen to expand my post-apocalyptic forces for more skirmishes in the Wasteland. Having covered the Brotherhood of Steel and the Enclave I was looking for inspiration to explore another faction's forces.

Luckily my dedicated girlfriend took a real liking to Fallout and told me that she wanted me to paint her a force to play with; after a bit of research and consultation she settled on the NCR and so I set about building her an army.

Image

One key aspect of the NCR is the Rangers who make up an elite force within its military, and so I felt that this would be a good starting point for my girlfriend's army.

Image

Within the game there are three distinct types of ranger, 'civilian rangers' who are dressed like cowboys, 'patrol rangers' in combat armour and 'veteran rangers' who are clad in iconic gas masks and helmets.

Image

To keep things simple I decided to go for the basic civilian/cowboy rangers to start with and so sourced appropriate western-themed models from Black Scorpion miniatures to fill the role. These models were excellent and really fitted the NCR theme nicely.

Image

I equipped them with assorted pistols, cowboy carbines and shotguns in order to give them a mix of ranged firepower and short ranged stopping-power; also this allowed me to include some variety within the squad.

Overall I am really pleased with how these models turned out and I am looking forward to seeing them in action in the Wasteland. As an aside I have never played a cowboy wargame...but if I decided to then I now have a small force available!

She's a keeper that girl! For the last 23 years my wife (and then girlfriend) has played I think, one game of Bloodbowl and had a healthy disapproval of my hobby ever since.
Cracking paint job by the way! :lol:
