Zeb Cook and I are planning to run a car race game on Sunday at Cold Wars in a couple of weeks. Months ago I got my hands on the Pulp 1930’s race cars from Eureka Miniatures, and Zeb did as well. So we thought that a short game on Sunday morning would be fun.
I saw a video play through of Gaslands and ordered the rules. They weren’t supposed to have arrived until a day or two prior to Cold Wars, but they arrived this week with all the plastic templates, skid dice, and markers. This weekend, after our monthly Ghost Archipelago game, I put a couple of cars on the table to try to figure out how the rules worked.
The game is pretty fun. It’s not awesome, but it is a light game that will work great on a convention Sunday, like chariot races.
This provided the impetus for me to finish these cards that have been base sprayed for a couple of months and have been sitting on my painting table taunting me.
I have four of the Eureka cars (which is all they make, I think), but I felt like I needed more of them, so I tried to make one from the cheap cars often found at the supermarket checkout line. They are slightly out of scale, but I think they look pretty good next to the Eureka ones. I used some Dixson seated gangster to drive. I have a few guns and plan to make one or two more before Cold Wars if I can, but I am running out of time. Thankfully Zeb has four as well, so we have enough for the convention.
