As for the actual 'Loot', I picked up two buildings, from the ever-friendly Dave Thomas. The first was the "North American Farmhouse" which I quite liked the look of, being very similar to the cottages I scratchbuilt a while ago.
It'll fit in with my own modern set-up as houses like these , I'm led to believe are still used all over America. Even if they're weren't it could still perhaps be a preserved historical building (birthplace of Jebediah Springfield perhaps?).
The second building was the Renedra "Ramshackle Barn". It's a very simple barn and can easily be used in a modern setting.
It's barns just like this one you can see used as garages, hideouts and so on in all sorts of eras. It obviously won't fit in with my modern city set-up, but for the rural areas (and maybe in the suburbs), it'll be usable.
Both models consist of very similar and basic components - four walls and a roof, with no measurable internal details. the farmhouse has the extra 'L' shape on the front, whilst the barn has a 'shed' type structure tacked on the side.

I've slowly been writing up my zombie game rules (based heavily on ATZ - of course) and I'm using d20's for shooting and for some aspects of melee.
Other than buying yet more things to paint I've had a burst of energy and undercoated another batch of figures ready to paint (aarghhh)
|Zombies, Civilians, Survivors, MIB and Hazmat guys|
|"EM4" Plastic Troopers|
They were easy enough to assemble and do some minor conversions on.
I'll be using these as the Military in my games (if they ever get undercoated and painted) even though they're a bit Sci-Fi.
Other than the zombies (Blue Moon) all the figures bases are 20mm washers and gunked up with wall filler from Poundland.
That's it for another week, I'll be writing up the last game for my blog next week.
