Thematic list of the Wasteland: BoS part I

Today’s post will be covering the basic squad in the Brotherhood of Steel in games of Fallout Wasteland Warfare. In the lore BoS patrol squads are most commonly seen by outsiders in the Wasteland, searching for technology to retrieve or confiscate back into their bunker HQ. Whether it be from the West Coast, Midwest or East Coast chapter of the Brotherhood, this thematic list will suit any setting for the basic level group.

All Cap costs in the thematic list for playing BoS in Fallout Wasteland Warfare are based on the current version of the rules as of publishing this post.

Basic Brotherhood patrol squad

  • 1x Knight in T-45 Power Armour
  • 2x Knight Patrol (Blade)
  • 1x Eyebot
  • 1x Field Scribe

Total: 346 Caps

Perks: Concentrated Fire, Hacker, Hit the Deck, Medic (Field Scribe only) [no perks applied to Eyebot]

Total: 77 Caps

Total cost: 423 Caps


Just shy of the 500 cap limit, this list has a cast of units with specialities suited to the challanges of the Wasteland. Need to access a terminal? Need to patch up wounds for your squad? Need firepower when things get rough? This list is just for you.

Rather than relyong on just power armoured units, this list balance is based on encouraging players to utilise a range of units. Having one squad member in power armour not only creates a challenge for your foes but also for yourself when making decisions in game.

You’ll notice that there aren’t any Paladins I this list when usually a Paladin leads at the head of such groups. Since my other lists have Paladins as the leader of the gang, I’ve opted for just a Knight who I’d imagine would be a high ranking Sergeant or even Captain.

Have fun with this one, and send me feedback on how well this BoS formation played out in your games. πŸ™‚

Until next time,

  1. I better get some more BoS painted so I can test your list out! πŸ™‚ Any chance you’ll do Survivors or Super Mutants or Institute in the near future? I have enough of those three painted that there’s a better chance that I can try your list without any extra hobby work needed.

    1. If you do get the chance to play BoS I’d be interested to hear how the list goes. πŸ˜€

      I think I’ve written a Survivors list, I’ll have to double check on that. I’ve not done any Institute lists, however, I have a few Super Mutant lists written up that I’ll post in a few days. πŸ™‚

      1. I’ll definitely let you know. I should have probably looked back to see if you did a Survivors list. Please pardon my laziness! I’m really excited to see what you come up for the Super Mutants, I think they’re really fun to use.
