I'm running a game of Machinas at the club on Thursday, so have been producing vehicles for what I hope will be an interesting Inspired By Mad Max road-chase.
For the baddies I've hacked about a couple of subcompact hot-rods. This one has a rack of missiles on the roof:
And this one is inspired by Fury Road, with a wild warrior wielding explosive-tipped spears. The figure is a Revel Aztec warrior.
There was minimal work on these vehicles. Indeed I left as much of the original paintwork on the first as I could, because I liked the flame design down the side.
This one took a little more work - the obligatory tanker.
This was a cheap ($2) mostly plastic vehicle. I added armour and other bits to hide some of its shortcomings. It's not the articulated rig beloved of the films, but it will do until I find something better.
I haven't given it any guns, but it's fairly well equipped with defences. This should make it a tough 'objective' to crack in the game, especially if it's given a couple of escort vehicles.
The vehicles together.
The game will have more vehicles. I'll add a few from my existing collection of course, but I wanted to use some bikes as well. I have ordered some from Ramshackle early in May, but did so before I read their information on order processing and delivery times which basically suggests that it could still be a month or more before I see them. So I resorted to paper ones downloaded from Junior General.
The gang of baddies will also have another vehicle, for their Boss to ride in, But I'll save that one for another post because it's worth it.
The next stage is to name the vehicles and give them some stats.
