The Tribe of The Tsar in Yellow - OpFor for Metro 2033


Here is a small nod to my Metro 2033 project. I desperately needed some opponents to pit against my Survivors and found the perfect solution in these figures from Pig Iron Productions.


They are listed as 'Kolony Ferals' and are wonderfully chunky and characterful. The heads are separate allowing for a nice variability.


I wanted them to be from a post-apoc cult so I kept to a yellow motif. I had a bit of fun with the leader by 'gifting' him a few miliput tentacles and a plasticard sigil plate for his staff to emblazon with the sign of 'The King (er, Tsar) in Yellow'.


I have some heavy weapon and close combat specialists to back these up, but before that I feel a desire to return to the puff & slash of the Renaissance.


Thanks for dropping by and have a great week!

    I will watch this project with a great deal of interest as the figures and scenery bits shown so far look very promising.

  2. Pig Iron stuff is lovely. You've certainly done them justice mate. The crimson / mustard combo really works.

  5. Great work dude. Those Pig Iron figures are top-shelf sculpts and fit in so many different settings - in particular as denizens of the Moscow metro in 2033!

  9. Well shoot. The last I heard they were going out of business. Glad to see they're still around. You've done a wonderful job with both the models and the bases. Makes me want to go hunting in the metro tunnels.
