Look What I Found in Poundland!

Usually, when you look in bargain basement shops, you usually find tat. Every once in a while, you find a real gem. I was in Poundland a week or two ago, looking for cars that might scale OK with my 15mm zombies. (Poundland, to any readers out of the UK, is a shop where everything they sell is £1). Anyway, I managed to find these lovely not-Hummers, and they are in perfect 28mm scale. Some have sirens/flashing lights on the top, while others are in an army style. Needles to say, I cleared the shelf.

Here's a pictures with a 28mm Copplestone figure so you can get a feel for the size.


Although they are nice enough as they are I will be repainting them to suit my 28mm African terrain, probably as part a government motorcade. It's easy to see these lovely models used in any modern or near future setting, such as Pulp City, or a Zombie incursion. I might pop back next week to see if they have got any more.

Great find. They look a little bit small but I think its because of the mini's larger base
