    Hi to all

    Legion Miniatures continues to provide a variety of subjects to tempt our wallets , this time we have gone into the future , a post time where the air is poison and all are fighting just to survive not only in the underground sewers but on the streets...

    A nightmare APOCALYPTIC time

    This is the figure we will look at


    Perhaps the figure was inspired after watching this film or something similar


    Details of the release:

    Title: Warrior of the Apocalypse

    Reference: LMBF002

    Scale: 120mm

    No of pieces: 16

    Material: Lt Gray resin

    Sculptor: Nik Ableev

    Casting: In house

    Box Art: N/A on Review box

    As always packing is not any issue with the resin in clear bags with bubble wrap around and packed between foam layers top and bottom of a laser cut box

    Legion Warrior of the Apocolypse 002.jpg

    This scale of 120mm will please those its a large figure and the details are all there more visible to the modeller , making prep and painting much easier and less tiring on the eyes

    The figure depicts a warrior fully kitted up , carrying a weapon with another at his side next to a backpack

    Lets have a couple of pictures of the figure from the website

    Lets look at the resin now


    Main figure...Remove casting lines on inside of legs and excess resin on boots

    Head...Remove resin post and casting line and fit to torso

    Arms...Remove casting excess and fit ...slight skim if filler needed

    Equipt...Remove from formers , slight sanding

    Backpack...Cut away block of excess resin from rear and fit in position

    Weapons...Take away the formers and fit ...minimal filler needed

    Base: Take off casting excess and sand around

    Onto the resin

    Main Figure

    Consisting of full upper body with the 2 legs , with fitment points for the head and the arms , the left lef to the fore

    Wearing long trousers with high ankle boots together with a protective vest on the upper

    The work on the trousers is very well sculpted with good folds and creases and some tears and worn area's , the pockets are bugling and well shown , nice definition on the seams both here and down the side centre of each leg

    The boots are ankle high and has some very good details sculpted on them , particularly he various sections of the boot and the sole is also very well done with good shaping on the underside , the lacing is another area thats good to look at .... all are well cast and sharply done , making painting easier

    The upper jacket is open at the upper thighs with a belt around the waist , good undercuts , the protective vestis well sectioned , of note is the work on all the straps running over the body , very well shown and cast

    Legion Warrior of the Apocolypse 009.jpg Legion Warrior of the Apocolypse 007.jpg Legion Warrior of the Apocolypse 005.jpg Legion Warrior of the Apocolypse 013.jpg

    Legion Warrior of the Apocolypse 004.jpg Legion Warrior of the Apocolypse 006.jpg Legion Warrior of the Apocolypse 008.jpg

    Legion Warrior of the Apocolypse 010.jpg Legion Warrior of the Apocolypse 011.jpg Legion Warrior of the Apocolypse 012.jpg


    There is no flesh showing as the head is wearing a respirator , with rounded lens , very nicely shaped , the lower part fitting tightly to the face shape with a fitment point for the hose

    The head itself is wearing a hood and this is very well cast considering the scale , the hood material has of course folds and creases with the neck area having a roll topped jumper

    Impressive that the painter is able to get easy access to the mask itself

    Fit to torso is clean and needing only a tiny bit of filler

    Legion Warrior of the Apocolypse 016.jpg Legion Warrior of the Apocolypse 017.jpg


    The left holds the haversack when this is put onto the figure ( obviously dry fit before fitting the arm), the long sleeved has the cuffs pulled tightly together with what would probably be a velcro strip , nice sharp undercuts , the glove is well formed with knuckle protectors sculpted onto the glove itself, on the sleeve to a blank badge patch ...allowing a individual design or maybe a rank

    The right is hanging down with the same details except the badge on the upper sleeve has a design on it , no hand on this part

    Both arms have wear and tear , including stitching repairs ...nice touch

    Onwards to the remainder of the pieces:)


    These consist of various attachments to add to the figure including a combat knife , a radio , smaller pouches , a haversack , backpack and the end for the hose and a very nice container with a radioactive sign on it , the hose is also to be added

    Legion Warrior of the Apocolypse 021.jpg As you can see shaped to fit into position well , with fitment posts at each end

    Legion Warrior of the Apocolypse 022.jpg Legion Warrior of the Apocolypse 023.jpg

    Sharp undercuts and casting on these ...note: Radioactive sign

    Legion Warrior of the Apocolypse 024.jpg Legion Warrior of the Apocolypse 025.jpg

    Again 2 nicely shaped pouches , shaped to fit easily and again sharply cast

    Legion Warrior of the Apocolypse 026.jpg Legion Warrior of the Apocolypse 027.jpg

    Great details on the knife and the radio/geiger counter perhaps

    Legion Warrior of the Apocolypse 028.jpg Legion Warrior of the Apocolypse 029.jpg

    The haversack good shaping and I like the easy fit to the torso with minimum filler where straps meet , the flap is raised around the edging , I recommend fitting this before the arm ( dryfit first both )

    Legion Warrior of the Apocolypse 032.jpg Legion Warrior of the Apocolypse 033.jpg

    The backpack shows good strap work with a bedroll being held under the flap which has stitching added by the sculptor, in place it loks the parts especially with the weapon running down the rightside


    2 are provided one fits to the backpack side the other has a gloved hand holding it the forefinger sitting along the top of the trigger guard

    The details on both weapons are very good and again well cast , the one that fits to the backpacck has a snipers sight fitted with a cut out stock as we see on today's high powered rifles

    The one held in the gloved hand has no sight but has a high powered torch in place in front the magazine , the weapon is similar in shaping to a AK47 , with a angled magazine fitted

    Legion Warrior of the Apocolypse 036.jpg Legion Warrior of the Apocolypse 035.jpg Legion Warrior of the Apocolypse 037.jpg


    Legion have been clever here in that the underside dug out , reducing the resin used , the base is nicely sculpted as a pavement , scattered with debris , loose slabs and with possibly electric cables , on the edge there are 2 other pipes ...vital power supplies or water ....there is splits and damage on the upper pipe that runs alongside the road...nice small detail

    Final thoughts

    A good figure and one that offers plenty of painting options , needless to say Legion have continued to give the modeller what they want ...no matter what their interest genre.
    Sculpting and casting well up to the Legion standard as is the overall presentation
