Greenlight are expensive. I couldn't resist the V8, but in general for Gaslands etc I prefer a cheap Hotwheels.

yeah, those are great!

I just found two vehicles for my Highway patrol. I think they'll go well with the look of the Copplestone/Perry patrol officers.




Though these two are super old school and would match really well to the miniatures. I'm not sure they have the rugged, off road look I'm going for though. If my games were set more in an urban environment, then yes.

Just received my Greenlight highway patrol vehicles. Hot wheels would work, but I’m liking the authenticity here.

Perry Dark Future model on the left, Copplestone Gaslands on the right.

They look great.
I agree, Greenlight might be expensive in comparison to toy shop cars, but actually if you want to do a specific project (like my Mad Max or your Highway Patrol) Hotwheels etc aren't good enough

I agree, the scale looks pretty much spot on. Now I just need to find a good source for them here in Germany.

I also like that the two vehicles are in scale to one another. Both are true 1:62. If the truck on the right were a Hot Wheel, it would be a little smaller to fit the blister. Here it's larger than the car. As it should be.

Also, the details on these are great. The cab on the back of the truck comes off, and the backs of these vehicles have bumper stickers and license plate numbers. Nice touches. I'm looking forward to buying sets of Greenlight cars for my other Copplestone figures. In fact, I'm about to set up a log about this in just a few minutes...

Finally able to start working with these great figs.

Proof of concepts at the moment. Nothing is glued together nor are the vehicles completed. A pic of the two vehicles and the whole cop gang, a mix of NorthStar Gaslands, Citadel Dark Future and an Elheim dog.
