Another burning village. Another foolish bunch of settlers that thought they can say no to queen Nalani.
Nobody says no.


My Version of Nalani from Neko Galaxy is a not a nice person. She's a ruthless leader of a large raider gang that has terrorized the sand wastes for years. Everyone who lives in the ruins of old California has heard of her and her gang. They all wish they’ll never meet her.

The snapshot shows her standing next to a burning village that tried to resist. She’s looking over the carnage as her men pillage to their heart’s content. She has had her part of the action with a few summary beatings. She likes to use her hands, and occasionally the butt of her revolver. The big rifle she carries is mostly for status.

Her clothing is scavenged from whatever her gang has managed to come up with. She wears a part of an old flag from before the fall as a reminder that even the most powerful can tumble. It reminds her to stay on the edge every day.

I gave her a scratch built revolver and a gun belt. The plinth is made from pieces of old concrete and the post is a rusty old nail.

    Thanks for the comments everyone! I really enjoyed painting this one, the setting and the sculpt gave me so much ideas I had to restrain myself less I go totally overboard.

    Fantastic version of this bust! The cloak is outstanding as is the reflection in the goggles.

    I enjoyed watching this come to life via Facebook.  The plinth doesn’t work for me and for the scene personally, but the painting is great, and its a great overall piece.  Well done!
