Gaslands Deathrace Gate

Posted on May 24th, 2018 under . Posted by

All I’ve been doing since my last post is furiously mangling Hot Wheels cars, and designing and printing terrain for Gaslands. I’m enjoying the game so much I’ve also kicked off a three race ‘circuit’ at TCOW, my regular war gaming club. We had six players in the first race last meeting, and I know […]

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.

Succumbed to the Gaslands frenzy, I’m trying to build a series of car while working on some Post-Apocalypse scenery. Car in the picture is a converted Hot-Wheel . I’m using the Sector Mechanicus kit from GW to as scenery bits. It’s been a good way to p…

Late last year Osprey published Gaslands, which is another independent set of rules in their Wargames series. Gaslands is a game of vehicular combat, designed primarily to be used with Hot Wheel or Matchbox cars from Mattel. I plan to review Gaslands once I have a few more games under my belt – but for […]

We had another bash at Gaslands last week with some of my newly designed a laser cut Gates. These are defiantly a better design than my first two attempts and they are much easier to put together. I tried out an unarmed Performance Car for the first time to see if its speed would help … Continue reading Gaslands

BwendTV Tuesday Tussle – Gaslands AAR

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…

Honda S2000

So it is finished, but I am not happy with it. As a first attempt at a Gaslands car it has given me some food for thought and a few things to watch out for. I think I will take apart the the next vehicle completely to make the conversion work a bit easier. I … Continue reading Honda S2000

I am having a go at my first Gaslands car conversion, a Hot Wheels Honda S2000 donated by Mr Steinberg for the chop. I started by using some mesh from a garlic bag to make a screen guard, lots of glue used here and it was really messy to stick down. I then basically cut … Continue reading Gaslands Honda S2000

First Gaslands Game

Posted on February 13th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

Last night was my first attempt at Gaslands, yet another Osprey rulebook in their ever expanding range. The initial impression is good, once you get over the number of counters and dice required to record a vehicles Gear, Damage and Hazard status, it plays quite quickly. The start is pretty chaotic with all the vehicles … Continue reading First Gaslands Game

Ramshackle Conversion Pack

Posted on December 8th, 2017 under , . Posted by

It’s pay day so I have splashed out on a pack of 20mm conversion bits for diecast toy cars from Ramshackle Games. I’m not keen on the over sized 40K style guns but the drivers, ram plates, turrets and missile pods should be very useful.
