Wall-E World

Refuse Compactor Bot
15 mm

There must be the look ahead, there must be a realization of the fact that to waste, to destroy, our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by right to hand down to them amplified and developed.
- Theodore Roosevelt, 1907.


I recently took a little break from our hectic summer schedule to paint up this cute little trash-picking automaton from Ground Zero Games. He's less grungy and battered than the guy in the film, but I like the sculpt and didn't want to obscure it behind a bunch of rust and weathering.  Or I'm lazy, pick one.

    1. Thanks... not a lot of room to work with but I tried to make it look like a dirty landfill :)

  3. Gorgeous work! I am continually amazed at the details and highlights you get from 15mm.
    And I completely agree with you that the decision to layer a mini with rust and wear is always difficult. Sometimes it just muddles the details.
