Car Shopping and other nonsense
Ok, maybe not car shopping per se, but I did get a few new vehicles for my sci-fi urban terrain.
While the wife was in the big city, she managed to find a shop that specializes in die-cast cars. The truck is 1/43 while the car is 1/46. Noting the side by side comparison it does make the truck look a bit bigger and the Tempo/Topaz look a bit smaller. Either way, I think they are fine…the truck looks a bit bigger while the car looks a bit more compact.
The best part of these vehicles was the price: about $10 for the trucks and $6 for the cars. Yes plural, I do have two of each. At least one of those Tempo/Topaz will get the Mad Max treatment.
In addition to the new vehicles I did manage to finish another building. There is also one on the assembly line. I am very impressed with how quickly these can be turned out for a pretty good result.
Again, a simple little showcase with a few miniatures I had kicking around. The last building is the newest one.
Finally I do have a few 40K figures that got some paint recently too. These are Pathfinders from the Tau army, a scout unit. So I felt ghillie suits were a good match for them. Yes, even the flying drones have ghillie suits. These will likely be the OPFOR to the small special ops team I have (including Deano and Widow above) when not used in 40k.
Quite the eclectic mix for the update today, but hopefully no less inspirational. If nothing else, I hope you too are encouraged to look at other hobby stores to find material for your selected hobby.
