Dirty Rotten Racers

Start your engines!

Whilst looking for something new to play with my son, I just discovered a fantastic new game called Gaslands.

The premise is simple - it's basically a Deathrace!  You buy the book which contains all of the rules you need to play the game.  All of the required movement templates and tokens are also in the back of the book and can be freely photocopied.

The only other things you need are a handful of standard D6 dice and some 1:64 scale cars (Matchbox / Hotwheels etc.) to get started!  You convert them to your dystopian liking and off you go!

The entry point for this game is spectacularly low and the mechanics are really solid too.  The community and after market rules support are also amazing - I really can't recommend it highly enough!

The good, the bad and the dangerously reckless

And now on to my own fledgling vehicles!

Below are the first heavily converted vehicles that I've produced.  I'll be posting more vehicles and some painted images at a later date.

In the meantime, get out there and give Gaslands a try; crashing has never been so much fun! :)

This tracked beast was originally a hotwheels car from the F&F franchise
I think it looks really mean, like a gnarly chipped tooth

This guy really reminds me of a minesweeper
I mounted his machine guns so that they are able to broadside other racers...
Adding huge wheels and a ram to any 1:64 scale car makes it look awesome!
A monster truck with a roof mounted rocket launcher? Yes please!!
A rear facing machine gun should deter pursuers...

Little red might be small, but he should pack a punch
Tombstone armour at the front?  Check.  Side mounted machine guns?  Check...
...enormous siege bow to the roof?  Hell yeah!

The game mechanics support a growing range of upgrades including RC Bomb cars!
