|This week's discount store haul (plus a couple of my old miniatures for scale)|
Discount stores in Tonbridge have served me well this week when it comes to stocking up on essentials for my planned zombie-themed wargaming.
I was in town centre Lidl earlier this week, to pick up some food, when I spied a single pack of 1:43 scale toy cars and immediately realised they were the right size for use with Mantic's The Walking Dead: All Out War miniatures.
Then last night, Rachel and I popped to the new B&M store, just on the edge of Tonbridge, and while I primarily scoping out their array of random action figures (and I may have purchased a couple of comic book accurate Walking Dead figures) I spotted a scale replica of the "duck vehicle" from Batman Returns.
Again, it's the right scale for the Mantic figures and I picture it being part of an abandoned funfair scene.
Now all I need to do is find some helpful online video guides that can talk me through the processes of ageing and weathering all these vehicles so they look suitably abandoned and post-apocalyptic.
