Cool site and figs.

What are the streets from? They don't look like WW to me.

They look ready to take on the Zombie horde! Nice pick ups with the truck and heli too!

Cool looking figs and terrain. One not to pick---not cool to call your troops US army marines is not cool. Part of the US military, yes. But many Devil Dogs take exception to being lumped in with those other ground pounders!

Great work – love your use of frugal but good looking vehicles

As noted, there is no better way to pick a fight in a bar than to label a Jarhead as Army

Semper fi!

Yeah. They're US NAVY Marines!!

If they were part of the Army, they might have decent equipment.

We don't claim 'em, they just get paid by the same overlords.

Anchors Aweigh!

OK sorry my bad, Im English, so sorry for the confusion, my experience of the US military is just what I might have seen in bad movies and TV! No offense meant! I don't think it will make much difference the the zombies though!! :)

Neat stuff. Thanks for sharing.

zoneofcontrol don't sweat it my friend I am pretty sure your command of English is much better than most English speakers on this boards command of any other language. In the UK I am considered weird because I can greet people, introduce myself and order a beer in more than one foreign language.

Nice job on the figures.

Army grunts…. Marine grunts… a grunt is a grunt and they make a very similar crunching sound when a MBT runs over them. But I will admit a marine getting crunched in my tracks does make a different, and more satisfying, crunching quality than say an Army crunchy.

Army grunts… Marine grunts…. just different crunchy targets to me!!! evil grinevil grinevil grinevil grinevil grinevil grin

If you really want to clobber some zombies then you need something like this!

Indeed I do need a tank and maybe an ATV, but I would draw the line at that. I like to limit how much equipment any humans get against the zombies!
That is a lovely machine by the way, but was imagining something a little less "prepared" for my players to use, that one seems to be giving my players the upper hand against the hordes!

Read the novel World War Z for one interesting take on tanks, arty, & similar v. Zombies. Esp. see the Battle of Yonkers.

N.B….the novel, not the film. From what I can see so far, the film is almost, but not quite, totally unlike the novel in any way. :)

Yeah, really, the tank is only so useful against zeds, even with that nifty cutter above.

I notice the Tank even has skis! Handy for moving down hill on snow covered mountains.
