So, like most people on the Gaslands Facebook page I seem to have purchased a few too many cars for a game that only needs 3-4 in the average team garage.
Therefore, I have made some happy people and already given them a copy of the rules and some of my haul in hopes of getting them started on this little game.
One lucky (read – no painting drive at all) fellow picked out his cars and left them just lying about on my painting table expecting them to paint themselves…
Well, I had 3 hours spare and a new pack of Ramshackle games upgrade parts that arrived that morning, so hey presto – Finished team (Extended team really, as only 3 were needed to fit the 50 can standard game limit)
First up, and my favourite, is this Buggy. Armed with little more than 2 crew to lob grenades and fire their handguns at passers by.
A little more classy and obviously the lead driver in this team.
Also slightly more ‘up gunned’, this little convertible has 2 crew and 2 MGs mounted on the front.
A second buggy, with grenades and 2 crew, gives the option for a larger, slightly lighter team, if speed is required instead of brute force.
Pickup trucks appear to be the easiest way to bring on the brute force. Either as a platform for a turreted HMG.
Or by applying that weight directly to your opponents cars in the form of a battering ram.
I suspect he will be happy with the simple paint jobs and little additions. If left to him they would likely have been played ‘as is’ or replaced in time by eBay purchases of finished conversions.
First game is planned for later this week, so watch this space…
