Gaslands by Osprey Publishing.  So, I have been curious about this title for some time and still don't actually have it but have finally gotten some details.  Turns out it is a Car Wars style game using Wings of War style template movement!  I am so pumped up to buy a bunch of Hot Wheels and Matchbox cars and convert the elf out of them!  Cannot wait for this to reach the store!

There are a few companies who store 28mm scifi / modern vehicles.

Mostly resin and expensive but very cool stuff including a wrecked vehicle and stuff like traffic cones and road blocks.

 

Bones IV will have some traffic cones as well.

 

Maybe useful.

Aaargh!

 

I still enjoy playing with cars, and this would give me an excuse to do so...

(Looks at bin of Matchbox-type cars.)

 

(Looks at other bin of larger minis-scale cars.)

 

(Surreptitiously nudges them behind furniture with foot.)

 

... What?

Does this game call for Matchbox-scale cars or 28mm-scale cars? Or would both scales be suitable?

Just went to Target and bought $20 of Matchbox and Hot Wheels cars for this. Probably not even going to repaint them as the ones I chose fit the theme pretty well as is. Might look into scavenging weapons from Bones CAVs but I still need to pick up the rules before any conversions.

I picked this up in Dec, and have been busy making terrain and converting cars.   I hope to get in some games at the FLGS in the next week or two, and I might take materials for pickup games at AdeptiCon.
