Television is rather a frightening business. But I get all the relaxation I want from my collection of model soldiers.

I'm not dead!

The blog has been quiet but that's been because of holidays and my lungs making a spirited attempt to kill me but I have been chunking away on some hobby related stuff. I will try post some stuff over the next few weeks.

In the meantime - Gaslands. Bought on the recommendation of a number of people the attraction here was a) Mad Max b) being able to repurpose my sons' toy cars they have no interest in and c) Mad Max. The fact that the rules themselves look great was an added bonus.

So in order to test the rules out I needed some toys. Here are my first three tester teams

There was nothing fancy here: six hot wheels cars, some bits from the box, some plasticard armour, a zentihal prime and a base coat of Contrast paint. The posh team got highlights, the others didn't. Then rust:

Finally, weathering pigments

So these guys are ready to roll - will try and have a game soon and report back if it's as good as it looks. 


  1. I've been toying with the idea of re-purposing some of granson's toys. He even has a monster truck. Some excellent you tube videos if you're looking for some easy watching.

  2. Dammit, those look great!! You made an interesting job here.

  3. Weathering makes them look way cooler as per your intended theme i.e. Gaslands.
