I am just back from "up there", had a lovely time, finally saw the city everyone keeps talking about and even got me some new toys.
Here is a picture of all the wargaming-related loot together:
- A box of 30 mantic zombies, some pilles (remember how I cried about ruining a mini with a hobby knife?). I will do unboxing review for Mantic zombies shortly.
- Garbage truck (they had them in white, yelow and green, figured white is the best), I could also pick that other garbage truck with that huge dumpster, but this one is much nicer and I figured one is enough.
- Street cleaner truck. Those two trucks are 1/56 trucks, got them for 2 pounds each from Morrison's. Scale is spot on, heh.
- The rest is from Poundland, so pound per pack. Got two hummers that I also saw somebody else got on the blogs, but can't remember who. I've picked two as I've figured I wouldn't need any more. They're a bit small compared to rest, but I think they're great. Just need some repainting. I got pack of 3 police cars. Now let me make this clear. They're not the same! Those are patrol cars 911, 112 and 120 :P. I also got pack of 3 random cars, nothing special, but hey, one for 33,3333 sounds good. Lastly, I got myself two buses (hey, I had birthday and could afford!). Will probably only use two on the same table when I will play on maps with totally blocked roads that look so cool. Those cheap cars are nice fillers, IMO. Generally, the police seem a bit out of scale.
So what I got for you are some bad scale pics. If you want to see better ones, please let me know and I will shoot some tomorrow. I'm dead tired at the moment. But can't sleep so that why I'm writing that, heh.
So, various vehicles and some WGF and urban war minies:
One of the buses. It's a colossus vehicle, but I tihnk its pretty good scaled...it might just look funny next to my buildings, I tihnk:
So, what now? Got to build my streets to occupy them, of course! I really got pumped while I was hoarding all the goodies. And my paints have finally been dispatched, so next week, hopefuly, I will be able to show you my very first painted zeds. Won't get sculpting tools tho, so I will still have to work with my old ones. The week off was nice, but I can't wait to do something hobby related!
(watch me being polite now!)
