Hey have you ever played the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games? I think that'd be a good one (well without the mutants and zombies, but their zombies arent undead, they are undercontrol of a virus so they still have a heartbeat and such)

Images from Logan's Run when they were outside. There are some here along with some other similar artwork...

I made the move to professionally painting 3 years ago. I paint a good mix between speed and quality. This keeps prices low, like a typical 2K 40k army is under $500.

I think all of these pictures are great, I think todda found the closest to what I think the earth should look like, I think it should be destroyed buildings should be broken, and the envrionment is starting to take over

To be honest, I think it would be barren, rocky, and bacically like the mire in the edge cronicles (if not interested in fantasy books get one from a nearby libray(or buy one!)
The resemblence between lizard men and dinosaurs is clear:
Skink=Troodon.
Saurus=Baby T-rex.
Stegadon=Triceratop/Stegosaurus.
Carnosaur=T-rex.
Slann=Weird amphibian at the bottom of a hole.

When i think of a post apocalyptic world like the Hellghast, ( sory if spelling is off, havent played in a while) like Helghan, all the blown up stuff, red skies, and the millitary ( or dominant faction) Patroling for victims.
Nurgles wrath is just and right to those that do stray from the path of chaos.

I was totally thinking "Life After People" when I heard Matt's description of the Earth for Dark Potential. It was also the same sort of environment I was using for my Space Marine Chapter's home world: A reclaimed imperial world that was lost for centuries due to warp storm activity. When it was finally clear to travel there, they found the planet completely depopulated with no sign of cause, no physical damage to indicate war, no remains left indicating disease or natural disaster. Just time and nature eroding and reclaiming what had once been a thriving semi-industrial world.

This is the main reason most of my original terrain was wilderness: hills, rocks, and extra large trees. I intended to build some more nature reclaimed urban pieces such as a collapsed gothic church ruin with more of my homemade trees having grown up in it's midst, roots lifting floor tiles/blocks and displacing walls. If dark potential takes off, my terrain will immediately be useful and I'll have reason to act on that overgrown ruin concept.
