Related to the above, I have a 1/56 resin Jackal and crew I bought at a show, but cannot remember the company.

When I get home I will blutack the wheels on and photograph it, and someone can tell us who made it ^__^.

I keep thinking it is S and S, but can only find the 1/72 one on their site.

We built several post apoc vehicles a few years back - here are some of the better ones and a link to the builds...

Ainsty buggy (and astronaut body).

I will assemble it at some point (I also have the Valley Forge set).

S and S models British Army Jackal and the crew set.

William Killian for scale.

The gunner/commander needs some work to fit in the vehicle. There are a number of white metal detail items to add.

Future release from Crooked Dice.



I am sure some small modifications would make them suitable for traversing the wasteland (good fuel economy, lousy cross country performance).

Another Empress vehicle, the BTR-80 APC.

This one has the KPVT 14.5 HMG turret.

My model is still work in progress.

Just found another Ainsty vehicle on their site, an armoured pickup truck:

I found the above while looking for the description of the Ainsty Small Box Van.

Here is my basic painted (weathering and decals to be added).


It is of a similar dimension to the Mantic Games vehicles that form part of the Walking Dead scenery booster.

Empress Jeep.

This is scaled at 1/50, so will probably be more suitable for post apocalyptic modelling.


I have just blutacked the wheels on.


For comparison here it is with the Warlord jeep.


The Rubicon jeep is also at 1/56 (you might be able to see the chassis/body in the bag.

Also, don't forget things like the Hot Wheels bikes and such.
Looking for a set of rules that adaptable for different genres.

How about this one?


Not actually a build, I was just cleaning up a Spectre Miniatures technical and an Empress Miniatures Panzer IB.
