The Littlest Gasland
« on: August 22, 2020, 12:55:32 AM »
Picked up a batch of the "Mad Ron" road warrior vehicles from Irregular Miniatures on a whim, and have succumbed to the peer pressure to give Gaslands a shot.  Even found half-sized measuring gauges to go with the rules.

Here's the kicker - the gauges are N-scale which maps to 18mm figures, and these little rugged adventurers are in 6mm scale.  Ya think I'm going to have any problems using the over-large gauges with my little collection?

They look cool

I think it will work fine. You will perhaps reduce the chance of vehicle to vehicle collision a bit as the distance moved in proportion to the length of the car will be less. But the standard movement templates are relatively small compared to the size of the cars, so going a bit bigger should be fine.

You will just have to be careful putting the templates in place that you donít nudge the vehicles  (which is a problem with the  20mm ones too). Just remember the key maximum carnage rule of Gaslands and everything will be fine (and chaotic)

It should work fine.  Not as far off as you thought: N scale ~12mm.

Those are super cute - great for portable gaming too. i am on holiday at the moment with no miniatures and wish I had something like that to still get in a game of something.

Yes they will!

You guys were right.  These turn templates should work just fine.

Have you modded cars at this scale?  That is hard core.
