Post-Apocalyptic Game Store; ConfusedDad stumbles in from the wasteland...

So our old game store has been out of business for awhile, but we have a new (well one year old) gamestore in Vancouver, WA where I go to play and whatnot. So I guess it was time to turn them into a post-apocalyptic game store.

The building that the store occupies used to have a big slide back in the '70s. I think it might have been a waterpark, but not sure. Anyway, the current building still has a big somewhat dilapidated tower that used to house the stairs up to the slide. So I turned it into a sniper post.

And now for the obligatory attacking-zombie-horde photo:

Anyway, I haven't been on here or building terrain or painting for a long time. It's good to be back!

It felt good to be creating terrain again. Anyway, the building started life as an O-scale Plasticville air terminal. I wanted that for the tower so that it would be similar to our game store here. If you ever stop by the game store in Vancouver, WA. you'd recognize it.

The mattresses came from Black Cat Bases, I think.

The posters are just images of posters found on Google. I'll download one, copy it into a Microsoft Word document. From there you can resize it to match the scale you want. Easy!

Fantastic work! The "Open" sign actually looks like neon in that picture.

I recognized the airport, you did a good job of covering up. Solid paint work as well. Would love to see a picture of the actual game store. Its sounds weird in a fun way.

The Francis figure is an EM4 biker with the beard filed off. Zoey is available from Reaper I think. Louis is a Hasslefree figure with a head swap. I don't remember where Bill came from. Some military mini that I sculpted a beret and cigarette onto.
