Continuing our round up of the traders at Salute we have ThunderChild. Makers of Wateman, a quirky game based in a bizarre post-apocalyptic wasteland. Populated by mutants, rogue robots, twisted fauna (& flora!) and more than one cracked individual it seems like just the place for a skirmish or two!
I love Fallout. I have since I first experienced the top down goodness and occasionally inappropriate nonsense. As a result I immediately drew comparisons and frankly I’m really looking forward to getting my hands on some of the figures and playing some games based on that. But this game goes beyond that and builds a weird world filled with crazy characters, truly strange occurrences and gigantic behemoths!
The creator, JL Fairclough, is a thoroughly nice chap and clearly enthusiastic about his product. His words will do the game more justice than mine so please check out the Wasteman Info page to get stuck into the wastelands! To be honest it’s worth checking out the miniatures for RPGs anyway and if you’re looking for something a little different this year then this might just be it.
It will definitely be worth stopping by on the day and having a look at the range although there won’t be the opportunity to test out the game as the whole affair is a one man band!
Until next time have fun! -Mark
