Amazing stuff!  Very much appreciate the parts list too!  got my gang just starting to dabble in Gaslands (the rulebook is making the rounds and we started accumulating cars from our basements since the kids don't use them anymore).

You're welcome :poke:

Personally i started with new models ordered on the net, because i really wanted specific ones (muscle cars etc), and then after, i started to look for interesting things in the sidewalk sales. Bought the truck from previous page half a euro/dollar from a kid. Usually you can find hotwheels at 1$/€ max in these sales. Or you can raid your children's if they don't use them anymore :;,;:

Whoah, this is some great and inspirational stuff.  The 8yo and I are also converting way too many Hot Wheels cars.

 

What nominal scale are you using for humans?  I'm liking how 15mm looks.

 

Can you post stats and costs etc?

 

Thanks a lot froggy the Great !

The scale used with i:64 scale toy cars for humans is not 15mm but 20 mm, that is to say 1:72 minis. You can have a lot for a reasonable price.

A lot of info here :

http://www.plasticsoldierreview.com/Index.aspx

I'm not sure about what you mean by"stats" but i'm gonna try to give some.

Time spent : i'd say more than 60 hours

Cost : well it depends : i have bought a lot of stuff but have a lot of bits remaining as well...That go in the bits box. I always want to have dynamic scenes and something like a diorama, but you're not forced to, and it will cost much less.

The real price is time : the more you think about the project as a general concept with a lot of little details added after (planned or not), the more it will lokk good and "post apocalyptic".

Let me know if you want more details ;)

      Now that my first Gaslands team is done, I am starting to work on my second: Scarlett’s raiders. Mechanically, this team works much like old pirate ships did- by transporting tons of rabble rousers that can hop off and wreak havoc after getting close to opposing cars. I thought a school bus was perfect for this, and it allowed me to practice my rust. I must admit, it is very freeing to paint a vehicle like garbage and not care if it looks messy.
       
      more to come. In the mean time, C&C welcome!

      It’s been a long time since I have posted, and a lot has been going on. Last year my friend got me into a game called gaslands, which is a post apocalyptic death race game using Converted matchbox/hot wheels cars. The game is a ton of fun, but the most fun part is converting the cars. Over the next few days I’ll post what I’ve done so far. 
       
      In the game you get to choose a team which gives you a certain flavour. This team, Beverly of the highway, has a single corporeal car and a bunch of ghost cars that zip around. It seemed like a really neat idea, so I decided to make a team. Behold! 
      first up is Beverly herself. Took awhile to get the OSL right but I like it now.
       

      ghost car 1. 

      ghost car 2, a police paddy wagon.
       

      ghost car 3 with skeleton driver pointing at his next victim. 
       

      ghost car 4. You can’t see from here but there are chains trailing from behind.
       

      the team riding the wasteland roads.
       

      even when you’re undead, you need a glamour shot for the advertisers.
       
      It took me a long time before I was happy with the painted ghost cars. My first attempt was to prime white and do a thing coat of ectoplasm green, which actually worked great but left some uneven pools on the large flat surfaces. I added more chains and flames to break those up, but the second and third attempts went poorly, so I eventually coated green then dry brushed. Oh well.
       
       
      let me know what you think. C&C welcome!

      Here is a foutain from Bones 4, painted, then forgotten on a shelf in my workshop...
      Water is epoxy resin with a drop of green ink and a drop of blue ink.
