Nearly finishing painting up this beast:
As I was paid at the weekend I blitzed the town for some supplies for the next round of vehicles and came back with all of this:
The Humvee looking vehicle and the tractor were both from the poundshop along with both rolls of the silver wire (2 rolls for £1).
Another discovery that I made in my local Wilco's is picture hanging wire (the small brass loops next to the tractor) looks almost perfect for 28mm rope, it's made of multiple really thin pieces of wire already pre-coiled into an almost perfect rope effect, I love little discoveries like this.
Also over the weekend I popped into Pets at Home to nab some aquarium plants to carpet my post apocalypse.
I'm trying avoid green for any foliage as I imagine my post apocalypse to be set on a nuclear wintered planet covered in chemical deserts and ash wastes and any plant life has evolved or changed to extract chemicals from the soil or air hence the crazy colours.
Also that means that any objective markers or mission's can be based on capturing green oasis's or lone green plants etc, also the brightly coloured plants should contrast really well against a grey terrain board covered in rusting detritus. I'm debating whether or not to add some 'land coral' like this sort of stuff, mutated giant coral that's moved inland as much of the seas have dried up.
I've already separated and based up a couple of plants on washers, they still need their bases finishing:
Yesterday was also the annual Abingdon Wargames Club show Overlord which I managed to pop into for a flying visit and pick up these guys along with some plasticard and another bag of Dice.
Finally to finish here's a picture of Gilbert partaking in the universal cat-joy of sitting in an unattended shopping bag:
