Cursed Earth Wanderer

If you've been around here for a while, you may remember the Chaos Renegade outfit i was working on?
Well, i gave up on that project when i started my Judge Fear one and did intend to sell the Chaos one to fund it.
No go there - couldn't flog it as much as i tried.
So i was resigned to putting it up into the attic.
But on Sunday i was at a Con and a bunch of folk from a group i belong to, The Cursed Earth Drifters, were there in their Mad Max inspired outfits.
Marvelling at the amount of imagination that'd gone into the scratchbuilding on show, the lightbulb went on - why not change my Chaos into something from that world?
So, that's what i'm going to do, using Mad Max as the jumping off board but also Hardware, as i don't see my character as a driver nor a gang member with the mask/armour arrangement he's got, so more of a Wander Of the Wastelands, much like the guy at the start of Hardware, a nomad foraging the Bad Lands, trying to survive.
That's set then so lets have a recap:
The helmet has the Warhammer arrow icon but i can live with that. The rusting is just right and i'm thinking just a bit of sand/cat litter/Fullers Earth is needed to finish it off.
Ditto the arm protectors though, now it firmly Earth-based, i may put a logo on the bigger one to try and suggest its been cannabilised from something or other.
