Lucky find and painted miniatures!

KAPOW! Holy batshit Batman!
This could be fun to try out... Well I think I got lucky at a small local sale. Amongst old books and pottery with flowers on....I found a black car and a fireengine. 





 As for that black car, I have had some people look at it and they agree that this is the 1966 model. The small plastic in the glass jar are to be shot out of the tubes, which are in working order. The small batmobile was part of the deal. The small one is from HUSKY and the big one is a Corgi Toys.


Merryweather Marquis fire tender from Dinky Toys. Good in scale and with the steering wheel in the right. We in Denmark (and most other places) have it in the left side. Just about full metal! I will most likely use it in zombie games but at some time I will give it to my older brother who collects fire engines. 

All cars.....£15. I do believe I made quite a bargain!


14 Genestealer hybrid cultist done and painted! That gives me 7 points and since I have bought other models this year...I will be at a +2.  Not bad when I finish the forgefathers and the zombies too. Keep the pace up and I might be able to keep it positive !

The latest project, I have some models that I will give a bit extra care. These are still a small secret but I will show some progress on my custom bases for them.
This was actually quite easy to do. Going through my bits box I have other things to put on as well. Just need the miniatures to be placed first. More to come on this.

  1. I am interested in your custom bases... Those look like they will turn out very cool!

    That fire engine is neat, I love the hose in the side storage. I think it will look very good on the table.

  4. Good find with the vehicles, Johnny. Your fire engine is much better than my cheap plastic Poundland model.

  9. I think 15 pounds should get you at least 15 vehicles (damn poundlanders!), but those are some nice vintage models.

    I looked into the batmobile (Yeah that's what I do in my free time :D) and it seems like they were produced from 1966 - 1983. First series were just like yours (bats on tyres), but matt black. They were only producing them for 6 months, so they must be uber rare. Yours, with gloss black is apparently from 2nd series. Here you can see different versions if you want to play around:

    But basically, it's around 50 years old which is...very old. And it looks like new!
