I picked up this HW armored truck at the Dollar Tree yesterday. I intend to use it with modern/post-apoc/zombie games.


It looks okay with new, based 15mm figures. Maybe a hair large, but close enough for government work.

They also make an M-ATV. Picked up three off fleabay. The turret is molded as part of the body so if not very good looking I will cut it off and replace with a scratch built unit.

I find the 1/64 die casts look OK with 15mm, especially as most 15s are quite chunky compared to real life, so look like a good fit. I also have some 1/100 models and can't bring both sizes of similar units to the table at the same time as they look too different to match. I have a 1/72 APC I sent off as it dwarfed a 1/100 T-72! But otherwise look the part. I also use HO buildings and vehicles as a real good match. And Roco minitanks are pretty good models.

I found a couple of them at garage sales & used them for post apoc/sci-fi games.

I have a load I have converted for my 15mm colonial force collection. They look OK with 15mm because no way in hell are they 1/64…
