The Post Office logs have to go of course, and it'll need a bit of a re-paint too - maybe in "Blue Sun" colours ? It did come with the tyres from the fron of the cab missing but as the rear cab axle had double tyres on its wheels, a quick swap around made it into a usable state.Another one of my daughter's finds was this very nice van, don't ask me what make it is, I'm not that bothered. It's another very usable vehicle, an possible a little under-scaled too, but nevertheless it's another vehicle that will be adding to the traffic mayhem on the roads of Perdition,
As in the Post office vehicle above , none of the doors open and it is a left-hand drive - not that anyone is going to notice. The PO vehicle would be left- hand drive too, of course but with it's blacked out windows it's not apparent.
I really do like the signage on this van too.
|Another view showing just how small this is.|
I'm sure I've seen this in various stores (Wilkinsons possibly) for about £4, so it's not bad value.
Once more the doord don't openm on it, but the large windows do show a fairly detailed interior, which the lackadaisical cameraman has once more failed to capture.
I liked this vehicle so much that I quickly decided to 'write it into' a scenario I had already planned.

Some pretty sweet vehicles Joe. That middle van is a Morris Minor, I think, my uncle had one back in the day. Would be great to see your campervan scenario. They all look a little too clean for the zombie apocalypse, I should think a dirty wash would sort that out.ReplyDelete
Thanks Bob, I did think the van was a Morris too (I also had one back when)Delete
All ymy vehciles, except conversions, need a weathering and maybe one day they'll get it.
The scenario depends on the outcome on the next one !
Some very nice vehicles for you to distress, Joe. They'll look splendid on the table as derelicts if not objectives :-) Its a pity you're not down South as I'd happily give you a regular game and if you could stomach my kooky team-ups.ReplyDelete
Thanks Blaxx, all my vehicles need to look less then brand new, but it's not on the top of my priority list atm.Delete
I'm pleased to have a game with anyone anytime, even southerners !
The camper van is ace. I may have to get one for my caravan park!ReplyDelete
Regular opponents can be a great thing but they also have draw backs. So Fret not and be happy. Nothing in this world is so perfect that we cannot wish for better. (Or live with worse.)
The caravan park is something I think a lot of us are aspiring towards, I'm sloly getting there too.Delete
I get what you're saying about regular opponents too, but I'd take most anyone atm.
Thanks for the welcome and the plug!ReplyDelete
Good finds...especially the Camper Van! Look forward to seeing what you do with them!
Np Gordon, you may get a few more 'hits' (I know some people put some importance on things like that, so I'm always willing to help )Delete
Yep, the camper van is definetly the pick of the bunch, but like all the other vehicles I've collected ut'll have to wait for any "improvements" to its garish colours.
Nice vehicles. I think I need to find a decent camper van. With my pleasing results with truck. I quite fancy some sort of camper or caravan having seen yours.ReplyDelete
Thanks Brummie, this is the second one I've seen, so there are some out there, and it would make a good static scenic piece too, like your 'truck camp'Delete
Some nice trucks your daughter found for you!ReplyDelete
The camper is very nice, but I really like the character of the little Morris! ;)
Thanks David, it did take a while to train her to get the right size vehicles !Delete
The Morris is rather nostaligic
Some times it can be hard to get a game going...
Thanks HW, getting any sort of game in atm is difficult for me (zombie or otherwise)Delete
What an excellent trio of vehicles! i wouldn't be at all bothered by the scale; they look pretty good to me. And what have you got against the Royal Mail livery on the truck :-) ?!ReplyDelete
Thanks C6, ('m not that bothered with the scale of these, they're close enough for me. Having a PO truck seems a little hard to justify in th US. If mr game was set in britain, I'd have no problems with it.Delete
really like the truck and the camper. I would play the truck as is and forget about the royal mail - it looks good but not my truck:) The camper is excellent and if i could I would buy a few of them for zombie games!ReplyDelete
I think leaving the PO truck as it is will eventually bug me, but it'll be a while before I get around to doing anything with it. The Camper van is god to go and was a great find.Delete
Great adds. You seem to have a great collection of vehicles now.ReplyDelete
Merci Shuby, my vehicle collection is getting very large now and I wouldn't care to guess how many vehicles I have, but certainly enough for a traficjam or downtown gridlock !Delete
Nice vehicles! And I agree, an irregular opponent is a lot better than none at all.ReplyDelete
Thanks Mattyoo, vehicles still coming in, in a regular trickle.Delete
I've always found the greatest fun in wargamng has been the social element, and I'm a bit lost without it tbh.
Really nice addition to your vehicle collection Joe.I like the London Herb the most.I think the most good looking vehicles ever were built in the era of 1930-1950.I am self planning to build my own vehicles and this gives me a lot of fun.Hmm wonder how much time I can put into this as a married man!? :)ReplyDelete
Thanks Ptr, I didn't like the 50's vehicles, in the UK they were small, cramp and underpowered, but I guess they do have a nice nostalgic appeal now.Delete
I've been married for longer than I care to remember, but I have a wonderful wife that understands I Haven't grown up ! I'm sure you'll be fine.
Your daughter is a good vehicle scout! I love the camper. Will it be possible to recreate the interior as separate "set" I wonder?ReplyDelete
Thanks david, yes she is getting her eye in, finding the right scale of vehicle (ar last). The vehicle probably does come apart and it would be fairly simple to have a separate interiror "set".Delete
Nice finds on the vehicles and it's always nice to see Bob. I have the same camper.ReplyDelete
When will we be seeing a return to the Alamo?
Thanks BC. As to returning to "the Alamo", I have no immediate plans to do so, for a great many varied reasons.Delete
