Your eyes slowly adjust to the gloom but immediately start to sting. Dust and plaster has fallen down from the ceiling, and you taste it in your dry mouth. Slowly the ceiling lights flicker on as the emergency generator starts up, and people begin to pick themselves up... ...Its August 9th. You've just survived the biggest killer of man in history. In 30 minutes, 3.6 billion people have died across the globe. Unknown to you, the population of the UK has quartered, and will continue to drop.

thanks alot guys, as for the helmet, the turtle style (as shown above) was used from the late forties until it was replaced by the Kevlar in the mid 80s.

thanks for the kind words :)

really nice although if you were going for the 1980s style helmet it seems a little off, it looks more like the late pattern ww2 helmet. nice work on the rest of it though.

Wow, it looks so awesome and really has a autentic 1980's look. The Brits amaze me because of their simple webbing packs still being used today as opposed to tactical vests, which is pretty cool because their light. Glad to see the character is not unrealisticly bulky and musclely
