Wacky Racers? More Gaslands Cars

Posted on May 31st, 2018 under , . Posted by

Gaslands – One thing about “mad-maxifying” Hot Wheels cars is it’s pretty
easy if you’re not concerned with be accurate or to scale. It’s also really
enjoyable to mash together parts to make something unique for your
Wasteland Warriors to ride in. 

Gasland – Converting Some Death Racers

Posted on May 10th, 2018 under , . Posted by

Gaslands – I’ve always loved Mad Max, Death Race and the like, when I was a
little kid the idea of a car with guns strapped to it was just so amazing.
I still remember the Christmas my grandma gave all the grandsons a vehicle
from the Tonka Steel Monsters line. I had the pick-up truck “Blaster” and
loved it. Many hours were spent tearing through the “desert” as Talon (the
driver) was joined by my collection of GI Joes fighting it out with
Badlanders in my 1980’s infused imagination of a post nuclear apocalypse. I
wasn’t introduced to Death Race 2000 until I was “to-old” for toys and had
moved on to Comics and RPGs as my money sink of choice. GURPS and the TMNT
role playing game continued to feed my “after-the-bomb” imagination.
Gaslands plays right into that nostalgia factor for me and has me watching
Youtube for play-throughs while I convert some salvaged Hot Wheels and
Matchbox cars.

Steve and I tried Gaslands for the first time this Tuesday. I think we mostly got the rules right, but more importantly we had a great time. The game played more slowly than expected. I imagine it will go more quickly now that we understand the rules b…

So, yeah, this is a thing. I’ve been noticing these larger scale old timey racing and fighting vehicles at the Eureka booth the last few shows, and I’ve restrained myself.. until now.  Why? Because there’s a new set of rules … Continue reading
