Nice, especially the bottle rack.

Where did you get the bottles?

"Shiny and chrome"

Crooked Dice 'Supercooper':




With optional flamer and gunner:




Base model with added bottle rack and flags:


Brilliant. I'm in the process of doing some conversions on the same theme but using diecasts (including a mini traveller).  Will post when I finish them in 2050 or so  . . . .

Lovely stuff. Always wanted to do dark future in 28mm but would need lot of space.

Lovely stuff! Fantastic to have it all here together too.

I've been stockpiling appropriate miniatures and vehicles for Battlecars-type shenanigans in 28mm for years - this is some wonderful inspiration! Hot Wheels G-Machines are a great source for muscle cars in this scale - although I'm sure you already know that!

Currently, though, I'm working with my nine-year old son on upscaling Battlecars (the old GW game) to Hot Wheels and Matchbox scale (20mm), and he's loving it - he'll get a kick out of this thread! When he's old enough, we'll segue to Gaslands rules.

Excellent stuff here. Long may it continue!

Bits box.

A couple came from Scotia/Grendal:
https://www.shop.scotiagrendel.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=43&products_id=256

The 2 smaller ones were from a metal sprue of pirate accessories; bottles, goblets, parrot, peg-leg etc.
No idea where it originated from.  ::)

"Witness me!"

WIP Warboys.  Destined to be crew for 2 more vehicles:


Painted predominantly with GW Contrast paints.  Came out pretty well for the time spent on them.

Loving all the work, but I have to say that Interceptor just doesn't look right. The edges are too rounded and it's too short, or something. I've driven one of these in Oz and it's a big car, much more US muscle car than sports car.

To be fair the Crooked Dice model isn't intended to be an exact replica of the Mad Max Interceptor.  It's a more generic model, with a range of parts to enable building in a number of configurations, not just the MM V8.  For some other options see the Crooked Dice site:
http://www.crooked-dice.co.uk/wp/product/interceptor/

I considered rebuilding the front end to match the actual Ford Falcon profile, but decided it is close enough to give a reasonable general impression.  I added the exhausts and intake myself, along with the correct CD (additional) stowage option and an added spare tyre.

I have more 'Interceptor' kits to put together.  One will likely be as an MFP car, another maybe 'Deathrace' inspired.

Claw Car #1 from Fury Road:



I started with an old Britannia pick-up truck that has been on the shelf undercoated for ages. 


The plough/claw (which pivots) was built from plastic card and a weapon (Crooked Dice) mounted on an oildrum. 



Both are removeable, the weapon with neodymium magnets.


The pick-up with the intended weapon & crew: for Mogadishu '93

After another long gap (lots of real world stuff)

I've been adding lots more in the past couple of months.  Not least because I wanted more terrain for the 7TV: Apocalypse day that took place last Sunday.

First off, the painted Crooked Dice Scrap Gate (Which I built the master for):




Also painted the Crooked Dice Scrapwalls:




Ainsty & Crooked Dice Shipping Containers:





I scratch-built a third section of tyrewall:




With one of the original sections:


All 3 sections:




(Apologies if the pics seem a bit off colour-wise. Poor natural light....or my photography..?)

More to come....
