Here are my first two Gaslands teams, built for demo purpose mostly.
They're identical, stat-wise:

Bike
Buggy with Machinegun
Car with Machinegun on Turret



Blue Team is made of converted die-cast models, with a Ramshackle Games bike.



Yellow Team is made of Dark Future models, the Renegade has a Ramshackle driver.

Yeah, great game. Best aspect: it's playable with any number of players, without the need of splitting them in two teams. A rare quality, in miniature wargaming :)

I have never seen the Dark Futures cars - so thanks for showing these nicely painted cars.

Some nice use of the Ramshackle conversion bits here! Haven’t tried Gaslands myself, but I own a large collection of painted Matchbox cars back from my Dark Future/15mm 40k adventures.

Thanks everyone for the kind words :)

@Ultravanillasmurf:
didn't get the reference at first, ad I didn't know that version of Mek-Quake :)

@DivisMal:
You should try the game. Best aspect, it can be played in odd number of players, without grouping them into two teams.

Been a while since I have seen those.  Nice job on all accounts.

I've painted a couple of Dark Alliance's Stalkers 1:72 models.
First models of this kind I ever painted.




The one on the left has a so poorly defined mouth, that at first I thought he had a handkerchief on his face.



Anyway considering the size and cost, on the table they look great. They are also quick to paint (a little less to clean).
I'm even thinking of getting more sets to play some skirmish in smaller spaces, like... converting everything from inches to cm.



I would say that scale is ok, considering that anyway the Hot Wheels are not to scale even between them :)

[EDIT] There's a problem I notice just now on pics: I let the dark wash on boots to pool around feet, and the subsequent drybrush on the bas is not enough to make for it, so now it looks that their feet are "melting" into the ground. I think I have to touch up the bases around the feet.
