Know who’s cool? Mad Max. In case you’ve been living under a rock there was the recent “Mad Max 4” movie Fury Road. Unfortunately no “crazy” Mel Gibson as Max this time, but still quite an adrenaline filled, action packed movie.
But we’ll go back a bit in time to the classic de-facto Mad Max movie of The Road Warrior (some people think it’s the first movie, unbeknown of the first less-apocalyptic movie).

Anyway this mini is the Chronoscope “Rex, Dark Future Hero”, while clearly being Mad Max. I do appreciate the old Games Workshop reference to Dark Future though. But yeah, nice leather jacket, good double barrel shotgun, etc.

For the paint scheme I went back to my roots of flames everywhere. Otherwise fairly standard pants/shirt. I did a nice tattoo on the arm of a curving skeletal snake. I also am really happy with how the base turned out, sort of like the classic Trista miniature from my very first battle report, but with a white passing lane instead of a straight yellow dotted line. I did orange hair perhaps as a reference to an old, old fantasy Paladin character I had named Tunher. Otherwise nice copper shoulderpads, the old blackened shotgun, hand painted black glove, slick gold zippers and copper belt buckles, and you have a great looking mini!

Anyway in case the previous preview image didn’t clue you in, or the background Dodge Challenger model or interior fight, I have a battle report queued up with this new Mad Max figure. So that should be up soon!
