Adam Gehling is coming over from Melbourne to run a game at LW Adelaide this year. He's running Axles and Alloys, a post-apocalyptic car racing game, set somewhere out beyond Thunderdome, wherever that is.

He'll be providing the cars for it, but this looks like a great opportunity for a bit of Matchbox-scratchbuilding. Here's a shot of some of his cars...

I'm now going to raid my kid's toybox for some old cars and see what I can come up with. Anyone care to join me in pimping their rides for this game?

Details of this game can be found here: Little Wars Adelaide - Axles & Allies

Alright, I had a rummage thru my 3 year old's toy box and found a few matchbox cars that sparked the imagination.

A VW van, which I'll probably paint dunkelgrau and stick a german cross on there. A small petrol tanker, or as I like to call it - 'The petrol bomb on wheels'. Finally, I wanna do the speed racer car - just cos I always loved the cartoon. Gotta work out what sort of weapons each of these vehicles would have, and probably also need to find/make driver models for each of them...

My son donated a couple of old Hot Wheels cars to the cause. What a road warrior he is!

With some armour, cannons and spikes, these should look pretty nasty!
