I've had a lot of time to think and plan what my next project would be after finally finishing my Robotech Tactics box. Having chosen my next project quite awhile ago however I've opted instead to do something else entirely at the very last minute. As a palate cleanser (because I really need something to help me forget that Robotech box) and for a quick hobby win I'm going to build and paint some Gaslands cars. This idea really came about simply because I had hit yet another wall with my last project just as I was about to finish. Wanting something different I spur of the moment bought a three pack of cars at the dollar store. Knowing I had plenty of bits at home I thought a few Gaslands cars would make for a fun simple project. Turns out I was right too. In the space of a normal painting session I had found all the necessary bits and glued them on too. For a little extra challenge I even ignored all my GW and typical tabletop bits for dollar store Final Faction pieces. Luckily I got a nice day recently, so I was able to prime them. Which of course brings us to tonight, in roughly one session I've almost finished the first car. It still needs more "dirtying" up but its getting there. The second car was also started. I'm still thinking about a color scheme for this one. I'm mostly sticking to their original color schemes with just a bit of tweaking but with this one I'm thinking about doing something different.
I found this little jeep at the grocery store. Since it was roughly the right size I chopped up a bones kobold to drive it. And piled some food, a crystal and a duck in the back. It was not bad, but I didn't really like the sword, since my goal was joyride mayhem as opposed to fighting. So I gave it a mug instead. I also gave him a little lizard pal hanging on the outside. So that's cool, but I want to make it sillier still before I paint it. Currently thinking of sticking a bag of golf clubs and maybe some other kobold loot on the jeep.
