I just wanted to shout out to the gamers who choose to play "Road Warriors in the Outback" on Saturday 1 pm at Fall-In. I had a great time running it and it seemed like the players really got into the "mad Max" spirit. There were cars that slammed into rocks, motorcycles overturning, snakes dropped from gyrocopters, doomed oil tankers, speeding wasteland fun! Thanks y'all!

Sorry, I didn't have my camera. 8VP

One of the games I wanted, but chose another! Hopefully you'll run again at a con in the near future???

I would love to see pictures too? Did anyone take any?

No pics? What a tease! Sounds like a lot of fun. What rules were used?

Yea, what Comrade said.

I saw this under the Pulp thread and had this fascinating vision of 1920's and 30's cars all road-warriored out, as if the civilization-ending event happened circa WWII. Or maybe Crimson Skies but with cars instead of planes (Crimson Roads?). Now who'll make the minis??? Maybe using the Shapeways method??? :-)

I guess I could find hot rod Hot Wheels or Matchbox cars and buy the weapons packs I've seen available, but it'd be sweet to get them ready to go, maybe in 6mm.

Hey Comade and all,

I used "Axles and Alloys" rules for this game. Axles and Alloys is free on the internet, so that was very nice. The rules are quite simple as well as being free, so the gamers picked up the mechanics by turn two. I used Hot Wheels, and Matchbox for the buggies. For the bigger sedan cars, I bought Jada Battle Machine cars which come pre-equiped with machine guns and gatling guns. I also bought a cheap army vehicle set in 1/64 scale and converted the army oil tanker into a Road Warrior inspired oil tanker with two turrets and one guy in the back with a few Molotov cocktails (on a platform). The bikers were Stan Johansen miniatures (in 20mm scale) and as were the gunners, turrets, guns, drivers, rockets and extra armor. The road was cut from black foamcore wth spray painted white lines down the center. The desert was my standard 20mm/28mm desert I use for North African WWII games with a desert colored sheet, real small rocks, homemade foam larger rocks and tan colored reindeer lichen for bushes. It was one of the less expensive game genres I've ever started. Very fast, and very fun.

Cheers, Peter
