Gaslands: The first batch!
Last Thursdays game against Nick saw me enthused to kick off my own collection, so I ordered a set each of Implements of Carnage One and Implements of Carnage Two from North Star then had a trip to the Hot Wheels section of our local B&M and I was off gluing bits to the cars and adding my own paint jobs.
This was my prototype and I had some good lessons learned in the retrospective, mainly, don’t try and over-paint the Hot Wheels paint job with brush on primer, give them a coat of spray primer beforehand.
Lessons learned, this ones body was first primed with Halfords Khaki, before I started painting.
We all learned long ago that red ones go faster, so this was worked up from a base-coat of VMC Black Red up to VMC Flat Red. The screen at the front was done in a simple non-glassy glass. To complete the red ensemble the driver has a bright red racing helmet.
Next for the treatment was a 68′ Camaro, again a driver was added, a single pintle mounted machine gun and a dropper was mounted on the trunk. The side exhausts were also added from the IoC-1 frame.
The base for this is VMC Black Green worked up with highlights with successively more VMC Flat Green added. I also worked in quite a bit of chrome on the bumpers, exhausts, trim, etc.
I think that this may be my favourite build so far. I added the wrecking ball, oil drums and gas cans from the IoC-2 frame then added a super charger intake, pintle mounted machine-gun, dozed blade, corrugated iron plates and giant exhaust from the IoC-1 frame.
I wanted this to look really dirty and beaten up, so the white is from a base of VMC Pale Sand with plenty of rusty areas added. The wrecking ball and corrugated iron plates also had a lot of rust effects worked into them. Using a Tamiya weathering kit I added plenty of dirt to the paint job.
This kit is pretty much exactly with the pintle mounted machine gun, as North Star intended although I could not resist adding a set of side exhausts from the IoC-1 frame and a fuel can from IoC-2.
Included with the IoC-1 frame is a speedy looking road bike that will make a good way to squeeze an extra cheap, fast vehicle onto your team.
The bike is done mainly in VMC Prussian Blue while the driver shows off in cream leathers and a white helmet, fancy-pants! I did not add any weapons, it’s side-arms only for this chap, if he’s shooting then he’s doing it wrong.
Another useful out-rider for the team comes in the form of the Dirt bike on the IoC-2 frame, another great little addition.
The bike’s painted in dirty white, much like the Silverado, with some areas like the helmet picked out in Prussian Blue.
