Man, I leave for about a month and come back to this awesome looking Khorne army. I like the metal armor, not all the flashy colors.

I have the gaslands book but never did anything with it. My 3 year old has about 100 matchbox cars... he wouldn't notice if one or two went missing. Haha. Your stuff is looking good. Keep it coming.

Buggy looks great with those new tires. Crushstation is fantastic. Sorry the RL cars are being so mich of a pain. Engine devoured by squirrels is something I hope to never experience.

It’s a tricky thing, my luck would have me grabbing his favorite one . It’s a brilliant fun and great beer and pretzel game.

Thanks, spoke with my neighbor yesterday, three of their cars had hoses and wires eaten by the squirrels the same day mine did and one of their cars was chewed up last week. He and another neighbor are actively hunting squirrels with pellet guns now.

Thanks CB, feeling a lot better now. Spikes are good, guns are better.

So after seeing them used on YouTube I bought a couple packs of the sewing rivets at Walmart.

They make nice mines and great tire spikes.
Worked up a second buggy. This one has a mini gun, ram, oil slick dispenser and mine layer (wheel spikes all around though no rules for them.


Very theraputic

I’m really feeling team slime right now with bunches of buggies.

Not where I should be

I bought a half dozen packs of these rivets some time ago, did not think of this use for them, I was going to use them to articulate joints on models, similar to magnets. You could swap out parts. Going to have to revisit them again now.

So having never painted any gaslands cars, for those of you that have is there any issue with primer sticking to the cars? Seems like the slick surface could give it some issues.

I thought I saw them in one of your builds somewhere, but then I saw it on a YouTube video as well. Also saw some other neat bits that I’ll have to try and source this week, it was from a German Gaslands player, but it’s electrical parts, so I should be able to locate them here too.

Thanks, Zinge make awesome stuff, I may have to order some more of them soon.

I’m not going inside the cars, too fiddley. I’m still thinking about grabbing some drivers and riders though .

I actually haven’t tried yet. I did paint on top of the models with GW paints with no major problem. I’ve been reading about stripping the actual paint off of them, but the chemicals are caustic and I don’t want to do it inside the house, so that’ll wait till spring here.

Thanks Syro, hopefully they can escape all the beholders and their cousins that seem to be invading around here .

Speaking of Gaslands, my custom skid dice showed up today, a few days late.

black with swirls and white paint. Nice looking dice. Set me back less than $10 including shipping. Came from Schu’s Games on Etsy.

Also who’s afraid of Corona Virus? I don’t drink much, but when I do it sure isn’t Corona beer . Just got another package from China off of Wish.com. 25 Red and 25 Black Blank Dice for $10.56 shipped they are listed as 16mm rounded edge dice, but they are almost identical in size to the Gaslands Dice and my measurement says 15mm. Anyway 10mm round stickers can affix to the sides easy enough for any custom needs.

Theophony,

The wheel spikes may cause injury to you if you pick them up to fast.

Cheers,

No pain, no gain CB. Show me a hobbyist that hasn’t cut themselves with their hobby knife.

Picked up some cars today, clouding the punishers van .

Oh, man. I need to find that van, just because. I have the Punisher car, but didn't know they made the Battle Van. Love the old timey number on the far left.

It’s a Target Exclusive, the store I went to had 6-7 of them. $5.49 is more than I wanted to spend, but it’s basically kitted out already. The side door is open and doesn’t move, but the back door is also open and the gun back there slides in and out.

I found a couple old time cars that were calling me. Each time I go out I find I’m looking for stuff for a new sponsor.

The “Poo King” truck with the twin Johnny on the spots on the back was too good to pass up. Plus they are removable, so they are coming off and will be some sort of decoration or objective for the table.


Automatically Appended Next Post:
Started working on my race gates today, of course I started at the starting line. Not listed in the game, but I figure they probably don’t like cheaters, so added two twin linked machine guns for any false starts .

Start your engines.

Also made a new buggy. I liked the look of the car, but it doesn’t fit many designs I had until I looked at the old aegis defense line turret part and cut the circle free. Then it just screamed super tech to me so the car became a team Mishkin buggy. I can use it as either a thumper or better yet an arc lightning projector. .

Well, just spent two hours cutting out papercraft shipping containers (20+ in 4 different colors), sandbag, stone and brick walls. All free to print from combatstorm.com in their downloads section. Printed on 110lb paper stock (only had a cream color not white so the containers are a little darker than I’d like) for durability.

Grey, red, blue and green.


Also received my template order yesterday. Still need to get the paper off of all of them, but really happy with the look and price.

It’s actually two sets here. The regular templates and then the specialty dropped templates set (contains two each of all the small and large dropped templates)
Lovely fluorescent blue color to them. Nice thick and sturdy. Got all you see in the picture from a vendor on Etsy for $27+$4 shipping. If I had bought $35 I would have gotten free shipping. I just wish he made a double long template too. Going to send him an email to enquirer about it. It took less than a week to get them too.

Starting line is fantastic. Shipping containers look good. The homegrown nature of a lot of the stuff for this game is cool.

Yeah, it’s great getting so many different takes on this game, also the Facebook group for it is entertaining as heck.

Assembled some of the cardstock stuff and cleaned a little section of the desk off.

Need to box up stuff to make space.

The fastest way to clean up the laser-etched templates is to peel off the main paper, and then take a credit card (or another plastic template) and gently scrape off the remaining tiny little fiddly bits.
