Gaslands Cars

Awesome stuff!  I just picked up the rulebook and my buddy brought over a  box of about 200 cars for us to pull from.  Soon, there will be some Mad Max-esque cars tearing around my basement!

I positively LOVE "Mad-Maximizing" toy cars for post-apoc settings.  :D  Alas that the scale gets a bit SQUISHY with Hot Wheels cars.  I regret not snatching up a bunch of those Jada "Battle Machines" when I had the chance a while back.

:devil: and that is where the madness started for me and my five year old son...one corner of our hobby room looks like a mad scientists graveyard of automobiles.

In the years since the Fall, the forces of Earth's resistance to Martian rule must maintain a low profile or risk immediate annihilation. Even so, their activities have left their mark on the world, and even with identities unknown, some resistance fighters have become legends in their time. 

 

Despite his or her American equipment and global sightings, one is particularly well known in the British Isles. Some say they are an ancient legend reborn, a reincarnation of a Knight of Camelot, Robin Hood, or Sir Francis Drake. Others insist upon an identity shared among many, such as the Dread Pirate Roberts. To Martians and their collaborators, he or she is a spirit of vengeance with no concept of mercy.

 

We have only a name: 00-Stig.

      Bit of a kitbash here. The chap with the spear is from Alternative Armies. The others are a mix of Warlord orc heads (previously Wargames Factory) with two frostgrave arms and bodies,  one Oathmark goblin, and one Oathmark dwarf heavy infantryman.
       
      Have managed to get a really quick palette going for speed painting orcs. I prime them by brush with Vallejo dark grey primer, then use Scale 75 black metal for the armour, Vallejo hammered copper for decoration and metal details, dark red for cloth and dark brown for leather. The skin is Vallejo Model Colour Heavy Warm Grey. Then the whole model gets a black ink wash and I pick out teeth etc in light grey. These models took about 90 minutes altogether, ex drying time.

      I am running a D&D game with my friends using the new Ravnica setting. The world has a very unique look, and one of the player characters in our group is an steampunk/elephant-man/mad-scientist. I couldn't find any miniatures remotely resembling that, so I made my own out of a reaper Avatar of Strength and some warmachines loose pieces I got on ebay for cheap. I have never done any kitbashing or sculpting before (just made it up as I went along) but I feel it turned out pretty cool (even though I am pretty lousy painter). Couldn't wait to show it off a little here, even though the lighting is really bad in here at night for pictures.

      Painted with all the cheap Reaper HD I picked-up during the sale.

      Question, comments, feed-back appreciated.

      These began life as cheap dollar store children's toys but then fell prey to my love of post apocolyptic things.

      A 1934 Ford Hot Rod and a 1957 Corvette. Taking these apart was a much greater pain than I had anticipated, 

      I started with the Corvette, switching the rear tires from the Ford With it's front tires as they were a bit smaller and helps give both a cobbled together look.
      The patina was a base of Ebony Skin with Black, Oiled Leather, Highlight Orange, Stormy Grey all dabbed on with a piece of sponge. Final dirt is Steel Legion Drab applied the same way. It works, gives the impression of having been a black paintjob originally, which is helped by the light dabbing of Linen White on the sides. The screen inside was a pain in the elf to get glued in.I also drilled holes to show battle damage.

      A light touch of Honed Steel was used to pick out remaining chrome bits.


      I used the same colors on the Ford, except adding Linen White to the edges of the patina. This gave a much better effect. The wheels from the Chevy look much more convincing than the original on the back. More Linen White was added to the wheels for the whitewalls.

      During disassembly the back bottom broke off, so I added a bit of chain to cover the gap. The back window had small bits of a chopped up gift card glued inside as makeshift armor.

      Spots of the original orange are visible adding to the rust effect.

      The touch of white difference . Eventually I'm mount weapons on these, but as an experiment in realistic weathering they came out well. In the future though I'll not be taking apart the Maistos.

      Gaslands is a 2017 post apocalyptic combat minaiture vehicules game where you use hotwheels and matchbox toy cars. You buy your tem, add perks (bloodbowl style) and play a game (death race, arena, saturday night live, capture the flag and so on) . It functions as X-Wing does, with manoeuver templates.
