Apocalyptic and Post Apocalyptic movies

I have been watching a lot of Non zombie Apocalyptic and Post Apocalyptic movies over the last few months, I have a large DVD and Blu-ray collection which I have been adding to as I find new titles, I think the 1970s and the1980s were the heyday of such movies, here are some posters of what I think are the best cheesy movies in the genre.

Pick Ups

I picked up two new cars today a  70 Chevelle SS Wagon and a 81 De lorean DMC-12, I was looking for De Lorean for sometime, I love the whole history surrounding the car, both cost 1 Euro 49 Cent each in Deals.
I love this film

re-purposed Mack Truck

I seem to be spending a lot of time looking in thrift store of late, I picked up this 7up truck a few days back for 20 Cent, It is very hard to find large vehicles like buses and Mack trucks for 20mm, so this was a lucky find.

Caesar Miniatures Zeds Update

I noticed that Caesar have upcoming Police Men and Civilian sets coming out soon.

I sent them an E mail asking about Modern Zombie sets this is the reply.
Dear Mr.  Wayne:
         Yes, we have produced this product. Wait for a while you will see the products soon.
            Best Regards, Peter (Caesar Miniatures)
So it looks like their will be some 1/72 plastic Modern Zeds coming out this or next year. This is great news as Caesar are the best producers of 20mm plastic minis

First 20mm Zeds

Here's a few conversions I did using minis I had left over from the sets I picked up for my Irish Civil War game, the Nun is straight from the box, the other 3 have had some cuts. I have to say I enjoy painting 20mm over 28mm
