    Some of my car wars type models / pls don't be too hard on us...

    Hey everyone,

    Last year I made my own customized car wars type game for our annual convention. I took rules from GW Battlecars, Dark Future and a bunch of other systems.

    My seven year old and my ex-girlfriend helped me build these cars. We used hot wheels/matchbox cars and added parts from the Road Warrior range by Stan Johansen miniatures: http://www.stanjohansenminiatures.com/Road.htm

    Here are a few shots. Please note we didn't try to do anything fancy with these models - it was definitely a fun project for my family and me only. As I was making all the terrain, and rules and templates and cars it was quite a large project and many things unfortunately got rushed...

    Nice work. I painted some old matchbox cars when I played Dark Future. They're around somewhere but all the weapons broke off.
