Gaslands 001: My First Ride!

So I have heard good things about this game around the internet. I'd like to get my hands on a set of rules and maybe even find some opponents... but before all that I decided to convert myself up a car.

 This is a little Radio Shack remote control car that was floating around the house. The charger and controller are long gone so I gutted it and set to work with some of the styrene stock I had.



And a couple hours later this is what I ended up with. The tanks in the back are from the Chemical Plant sprue, as is the silver scoop on the hood. I'm very pleased with my first go at this stuff. I want to find some more cars and see about just making some fun Mad Max style vehicles, maybe a whole fleet.

Cheers!

  1. That's awesome. Nicely done!

    I keep hearing about the game too. I checked it out online a bit, to get a gauge of the game, and it does seem like a lot of fun. I'm just not sure I'd have anyone to play against around here.

    1. I think I'm just going to knock together some cars, get the rules, and take everything over to the FLGS and see if anyone is interested.

  2. I have heard a bit about it as well but not enough to actually draw me. Far too much on my plate as is.

    1. Replied to early, I did want to say that conversion is looking well. What colours are you going?

    2. I don't know what colours I'm going with yet. Maybe matte black and rust like the Intercepter in the beginning of Fury Road, maybe some sort of colourful cyberpunk.
