Hi all,

Just got the rules for this game, and it's kinda winning biggrin.gif it's a 20mm (read: Hot Wheels) post-apoc carmageddon game, with a few interesting twists (the movement templates being the big one). Nice and simple, apparently designed around younger players.

the fluff.... COULD be better (there's a whole thing about the Earth now being Mars's bitch, and the game itself being televised) but it's neutral enough that you could probably skip it. Some good fun scenarios and easy car builds.

Short version: anyone with their old Dark Future stuff should check it out.

I'd rate it biggrin.gif info can be found here: http://gaslands.com/

Cheers!

Borzag (will try and get some pics of my cars up soon)

Not appealing to me personally, but for anyone interested, Tabletop Empires has the rulebook in stock.

looks interesting, especially the dice mechanic.

A good example of what you can do with the dice and movement

So come up here for a few games then biggrin.gif I've already got some minis going, a fair few cars + 20-odd bikes (the bikes are on the production line).

When you can, hit up the Gaslands group on FB. A lot of fun modelling ideas and the writer's pretty good about keeping people up to date with rules fixes (which also end up in the live FAQ on the game site).

Now to find an in-scale War Rig....

kmart (i think it was) sell them for $2/$3 (if you are playing matchbox size) There are a few variations, 2 different tankers, a few different solid side trucks, dual reefer container trailer and a stock carrier. 2 different cabs as well the traditional long nose and also the old style flat nose

Interesting idea, but from what little ive seen it seems to suit the interstate 76 vibe better than mad max. More cars with guns strapped on in a detroit style wasteland rather than old rust buckets in a nuclear waste.

Not saying its bad, and im already eyeing off my sons hotwheels and a 1:72 box of weapons and accessories.

Might get the PDF rules after im done being financially crippled by exmas.
