28mm Post Apoc Vehicles?
« on: June 06, 2017, 03:39:50 PM »
I am getting back into Post Apoc gaming.

I'm thinking of Mad Max style of vehicles.

I am wondering if anyone knows of any companies who make 28mm Post Apoc vehicles?

I am looking for bikes, buggies, cars, big rigs, ect.

Any suggestions on where to look?

Thanks!

Hit your local Dollar Store or equivalent, or disoc*** toy store.  Buy cheap cars and trucks and go to town converting them.

My suggestions are mainly vehicles that can be made suitable for the post apocalypse.

Empress do Technicals:

With various weapons (and without).

They also do: the BMD series (ex-HLBS) which would give you a Fury Road vehicle; HMMWVs, MRAPs.

They also do a new "large" scale jeep with various options:

Rubicon have a Studebaker and a GMC lorry.

The Studebaker above is the same model as the BM-13 below (hot swappable load beds).


My on-going build: http://ultravanillasmurf.blogspot.co.uk/2017/01/rubicon-models-studebaker-u3-katyusha_5.html

They also have M8/M20 armoured cars, motor bikes and jeeps.

Products here:

And here:
http://www.rubiconmodels.com/products.php?r4=34

They also have two stowage sets.

As mentioned above, there are a number of cheap die cast vehicles in shops.

The above was bought (in the UK) from QD (also available from Wilko) for 2.99 in 2011.

Take a standing figure with you so you can compare the sizes, the above was quoted at 1/60.

A number of World War 2 models might be suitable, this Warlord Games GMC could be tricked out for crossing the waste lands of Milton Keynes.


Other manufacturers are available.
