My Gaslands Journey Continued

My "Gaslands" Journey, Continued

Greetings, weary travelers! As you know we have been going through the Gaslands: Refuelled game quite a bit every Saturday and it seems that now is the time where things get a little bit… Batty. Now, I'm not talking about the massive issues with delirium caused by dehydration or insanity caused by the sudden and […]

Gaslands &#8211 War Rig vs Highway Patrol Battle Report

"Gaslands" – War Rig vs Highway Patrol Battle Report

Gaslands: Refuelled is an interesting game. Recently it became known that Osprey Games had run out of their initial stock of the game's rules manual, and it's getting increasingly harder to get ahold of a physical copy from online retailers for that reason. This serves as a testament to how awesome this game truly is. […]

Hobby: Building The War Rig For "Gaslands: Refuelled"

Gaslands: Refuelled is a game very unlike most any other I've played. Set in a Mad Max-style post-apocalyptic world where gas is the ultimate currency, Gaslands takes wasteland entertainment to a whole new level. While it shares a few similarities with Games Workshop's Aeronautica Imperialis (which I reviewed here a month ago), Gaslands manages to take similar […]

Hobby: Journey Of A "Gaslands" Newcomer, Part 2

Hey all! Last Saturday (September 21st), I wrote an article detailing the first steps I took towards playing the game Gaslands, by Osprey Games. Therein, I managed to get myself about nine die-cast miniature cars (Hot Wheels, for those wondering), and converted exactly three. Getting a decent paint job onto any of those vehicles was […]

I got all of the cars within the cart in the image above for just under $15 USD! Lucky for me, I had some spare parts left over from a game I reviewed for Bleeding[...]

"Gaslands: Refueled" Hits Highways on September 19th!

The entire premise looks quite promising.[caption id="attachment_1087098" align="aligncenter" width="823"] Source: Gaslands[/caption]What's more, the game, being that it's model-agnostic, permits the use of Matchbox cars as a base to modify and improve upon as miniatures for the game as a whole! If you have a whole crew of Matchbox or Hot Wheels cars available to you[...]
