DISCLAIMER: You might notice that this weeks challenge page looks a little...bare. This is due to a new banner being made with all the new shiny rules and whatnot and at the moment I don't have access to photoshop, so watch this space! If you have any questions or queries about the rule changes and/or brief simply ask and I will do my best to answer as quickly as I can.

Wasteland Marauder - A human's DNA has merged with a scorpion's! Bad times ahead.

I apologise if the size is too big. I'm pretty inexperienced with forums, and computers in general.
The New World Order Preacher Man
Once human, now Disfigured, blinded by hate and the radiation that melted his face.
He roams the wastelands recruiting any and all to his family of devoted followers. Those that refuse to join are simply... processed... for raw materials.

Mutant Marauder. Still human like but the radiation has hardened the marauders skin. The nose can no longer function in the toxic air so gil like features have appeared which can breathe the toxic air.
Disfigured Wasteland Marauder a.k.a. Flyswatter - Hides his grotesque face behind a mask. Has a biomechanical tongue that helps him catch and feed on insects(since very few nutritious life forms survived) and filter water to make safe to drink.
I was really looking forward to sleeping and then editing it some more when i woke up but then i realized that i would miss the deadline, so i have to post it now
I started off with a more complex design but then i realized that none of it was logical. If some people survived a nuclear war then so would basic clothing and a good marauder could be selective enough to carry a few good things rather than a bunch of random scraps and trash
but those kinds of thoughts might be what made this design less appealing than it could have been

Human(?) Wasteland Marauder. With rubberized armor bolted together from old car tires and license plates, these marauders use battery-powered electro-staffs to stun enemies, capture them, then use them as slave labor or breeding stock. Also armed with a machete, when deadly force is required.
Disfigure human and mutant dog, Wasteland Marauder. Cheers.
Decaying Wasteland Marauder
My final, great entries!
Kind of a last ditch effort and I'm not very happy with it, but I wanted to at least submit something
He's a guy who's not afraid to go out and crack a few skulls with his hammer, but he spends most of his time helping to rebuild his home town.
delicious works ~ and here's mine ~ and sorry about the back and front, ran out of time as I'm not actually done with the main image (& I still need to sort out the legs)

Didn't have time for all the stuff required in the brief but thought I'd give it a try anyway. Good job people!
