Codex: Lords of the Wasteland

Like a lot of other modelers out there, I've always dreamed of a Wasteland Raiders style army that you'd see in Mad Max films. These guys are the first serious attempt I've made and I am loving it. Lego wheels were probably the best tip I got.

This truck is the called "the Scrapper" because it's made of scrap. The other buggies I've got are all based on toy cars but this one was made completely from scraps and extra bits in my bits box(es). Like the one I showed last week, this one can also roll.

I'm making my own codex to go along with this army Codex: Lords of the Wasteland.

These buggies are actually bikes so that they can engage in assaults, which is important--that's what they did in the movies at least. Their shooting is rather weak but when they assault, watch out! Another cool special rule I am giving them is "I am AWAITED!" In any turn they use their turbo-boost to move in the shooting phase, they become Fearless until the start of their next turn. This ensures they don't run away while zooming straight at the enemy.

How do you guys feel about fan-made codices? If they are not OP, I don't see a problem. Plus if the coolness factor is really amped up, I figure opponents would love to ride the Fury Road with these guys.

Very cool. The rules for chariots might work well for them as well.
