Billy! Get to da Chappa!!!

Ever since I started Zombie gaming I've always wanted to include an obligatory 'Get to da chappa!' scenario in one of my All Things Zombie games.

Trouble is, despite my best efforts, I never really found a decent enough looking helicopter for the right price.

Thankfully I finally managed I pick up this bad boy about 6 months ago.

28mm Model for scale
1/43 scale Fast Lane Agusta A109 fully licensed Die Cast Helicopter.

It was £14.99 from ToysRUs, and I'm pretty pleased with how it looks on the table top and it is likely to feature in my next big game.

  1. It looks great nice find and it looks realistic in comparison to most toy helicopters.

  2. That looks so cool. Good find, Adam. I like the fact that it has opening doors. Always a plus for me with die-cast vehicles.

  5. I saw those in TRU also and was really tempted, but i held out for the blackhawk model I really wanted. Looks great with the mini.

    1. I'm sure I saw a Blackhawk, would work superbly for military themed scenarios

  7. This has made me remember I don't own a helicopter for use in my games and how much I need one!

  10. It works for me Deserter, all of my vehicles (bar 1 or 2) and 1/43 and whilst in theory the scale should be slightly different, it works visually and with them all being the same, it all tends to look 'right'

  11. Nice find! It looks great, now you need to make a landing platform for it mate!
