Post Apocalyptic – Mutant Foliage and Killer Plants

Today I would like to share a bit of miniatures weirdness, mutant foliage and killer plants from Armorcast.  These are the 28mm resin pieces from the Alien Plant Set found over at Armorcast.  I don’t recall who painted these, or even when they were painted.  I originally picked these up thinking they would be good for Fallout gaming and would work nicely for Vault 22.  According to the Fallout wiki…

Vault 22 was part of an agricultural experiment that was itself part of the larger Vault Experiment and involved the growing of genetically altered spores which eventually led to the mutation of the inhabitants of the Vault as well as the growth of dense vegetation. The mutagen was distributed through the Vault’s ventilation system. There were reports of noises in the vents, which turned out to be praying mantises that had mutated over time into their giant forms.

The giant pink Venus Flytraps will make nice Giant Plant Spores with the other plants filling in as random terrain or other deadly plants of some variety.  I have included one of my vault dwellers for reference.  Enjoy.

I decided to include some pictures of mutant saw grass, or kudzu, or whatever works best for the scenario.  Not strictly designed for Fallout these pieces work nice for any scenario that requires dense foliage to hinder line of sight.  These were pretty easy to make and consist of flat washers painted gloss black with plastic long grass hot glued to the washer.  Thats it.  What do you think?

I included a picture with the armorcast terrain to illustrate how these pieces would work together.  I am quite happy with the results.  Cheers.

  1. I think the giant cacti could be used for all kinds of general gaming purposes. Cool set. Vault 22 was annoying!

    • I agree. These are really nice pieces and are great for science fiction scenarios, but they are diverse enough to be used for a number of different gaming genres. Thank you for the comment.

  2. A great paintjob on the Armorcast Terrain!
