I've gotten a bit tired of our Monday night Star Wars Legion battles, and when my gaming buddy Chris mentioned he had picked up Gaslands I suggested we give it a try. I wasn't really interested in picking up a new system and scale, but since the rules were cheap and the "minis" were a buck, I figured it would be a nice diversion.
So I picked up the rules, grabbed some Hot Wheels and superglue, and got to work. All of my thoughts, shiny and chrome, after the jump.

Here's a day of high adventure for ya: today fellow Scrum Clubber and monthly game host Joe has launched his first miniatures Kickstarter! He's a big fan of classic pulp fantasy and had a series of miniatures commissioned dripping with old school charm. I've seen some sneak peeks of the initial test casts and painted samples at our monthly game nights, but today he's launched the campaign to get the final production molds created and miniatures cranked out.
I've been consistently surprised at how much Joe has accomplished in the short time he's been in the hobby. He's run multiple convention games, acquired a vast array of figures and terrain, spun up our local Scrum club and has plans to launch a variety of other projects. I can only imagine he'll deliver this Kickstarter with the same enthusiasm and determination. Check out the Icons of Pulp Fantasy Kickstarter running now, with final figures expected to be delivered in February.

I painted up a few more sci-fi figs to take part in the generic space opera games I've been working on.
Walter the Warbot is a mini from the first Diehard Miniatures Kickstarter. He's still available as part of the second campaign, ending today.
The second is a limited edition resin figure from Joe K Minis. It depicts "Servant Prime", a nefarious character from a comic book and novel I've never heard of. Still, super creepy. He reminded me of the alien weirdos mentioned in the Lankhmar books.
