I will be using this post to show off some of the vehicles of my 20mm Mad Max style setting. But first I thought I would show off my current collection of 20mm scale cars.

Some are old Dark Future Cars and some are hotwheels conversions for Axles & Alloys.

Some of these cars will be repainted, others will be rebuilt and some will be stripped for parts to inspire future vehicle builds.

The police cars are by Mattel. They have working light bars and make (un)realistic sounds. Or they did.

I am sorry to say that they are not up for sale.

That's a pretty sweet collection. Some of them look like they've seen some pretty rough combat.

Cheers. I like the battered look. Some of the DF cars came from a second set who's old owner liked battle damage a little too much. :lol: The renegades got repairs. The interceptor will have the damage "repaired" wasteland style.

I have been working on the background and setting for Blood and Fire. I find if I don't write down my ideas they spin around my head and I end up not being able to sleep. That said, no sooner have I finished a bunch of other ideas rumble along and things change. I am keeping notes to update things as I go along as ideas often come to me when going to bed, at work or driving along.

I have been picking up odds and ends for my Blood and Fire setting. Luckily I stumbled upon some cars from the old GW game Dark Future cheaply on Evilbay. That is a rarity in these times as many sellers seem to be wanting stupid money for Dark Future stuff these days.

Sadly there was no weapons with the cars. Those things are getting thin on the ground these days. The cars have drivers in which is a bonus. The camouflage renegade will fit in nicely into one of the Civilization factions I am developing. This little lot brings my DF collection up to 6 renegades, 7 Interceptors and 8 bikes.

I put an order into to Elheim for the Warlands set as a Apocmas gift.
Posted Image
I look forward to getting the basic set cleaned up and painted. The rule book is the basic rules. I am glad I downloaded the full rule books last year.

It seemed a little silly not getting some of the other Warlands goodies when I was ordering.

Posted Image
A Maxwell car, wanderer and dog, characters, Biker Boss, Bikers, Blowers and vehicle accessory pack.

Posted Image
I like the maxwell interceptor model. The back allows all manner of conversions. A goods transport or Fury Road Warboys car springs to mind. I think I may have to get a couple more of these cars. That said I would like to get some more of the Warlands range.

A fat parcel of Elhiem figures also arrived to help populate my Blood and Fire world. Whilst they are nice sculpts they are aimed at ultra modern gang warfare or zombie games. I am thinking that I will have to (attempt) to sculpt bits on them to make them look more wastelandry. The plan is to remove the some of the automatic weapons and add bags, pouches, bandages, rags, scarves, goggles, shoulder pads, home made armor and other odds and ends (any other ideas greatly received).

Sometime in the near future I will do another comparison picture of the various figure ranges including the Warlands stuff. I have just picked up a couple of (overpriced) DF figures off Evilbay so I plan to wait until they are in my greasy mitts.

That's all for now. Thanks for looking. Stay safe out there!

This week I have been working on some Dark Future Interceptors for my Blood & Fire post apoc setting.

The Interceptor is built in an old world car factory known as Motortown in Civilisation. The cars are built specially for road combat.

The Interceptors patrol the roads of Civilisation and beyond dealing with road gangs with superior fire power. They patrol out into the wastes keeping the wasteland gangs at bay.

Often they supply back up to Civilisation's police forces.

The Interceptor pilots are regarded as Heroes and celebrities in Civilisation.

Posted Image
These cars are GW Dark Future Interceptors.

Posted Image
Just in case you didn't know.

Posted Image
The pilots paint their cars in garish fashions. If you find any old paint out in the wastelands the Pilots will pay handsomely for it.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Not all Interceptors return from the Wastelands. Many end their lives as burning wrecks. Some end up hundreds of miles away from Civilisation in the hands of gangs or warlords.

Posted Image
This Interceptor ended up in the personal retinue of a vicious warlord known as Blackskull.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Out in the wastelands a Interceptor roams tackling everything that crosses his path including other Interceptors. This pilot is known simply as "Renegade" and Civilisation has put a price on his head.

Posted Image
This car was badly melted and needed a little cleaning up.

Going through my old Dark Future collection I decided to switch the front wheels on my favorite conversion from back in the day. The car was a cheapo Chinese toy.

During wheel removal the base snapped and left the car just a metal shell. I made another base up from plastic card. The car is back in action now.

Road Mercs operate as convoy escorts or guards for various free townships out in the wastelands such as Tinkerville or Wellsprings.

Posted Image
This car also had some front implements added and a little window protection. It needed to look more Post Apoc and less Dark Future.

Posted Image

Posted Image

I also got a warlands car assembled this week.

Cheers for the kind words. I am going to give Warlands a go. I like them as they cover vehicles and infantry.

Wastelands is another good one.

One of the things I have been working on are the resin vehicles from the Warlands set and the Maxwell car.

First up the buggies....
Posted Image

I chose the black livery for one (not that you can tell under the dirt and weathering). which will fit Warlord Blackskull's horde. The other is a rustbucket which can be happy attached to any force I feel like.

Posted Image
Buggies race across the wastelands of the paint table!

The buggies are a pleasure to paint and well detailed.


Posted Image
A size comparison of a Warlands buggy with a Dark Future Renegade.

Another vehicle in the Warlands boxed set is the Truck.
Posted Image
The truck is well detailed and fun to paint. Again I have chosen the black paint scheme of Warlord Blackskull.

Posted Image
The truck will be used as a cargo hauler/objective. In the Mad Max computer game there are similar looking Scrap Hauling trucks. I am thinking of making a few cargo bases for the truck. Scrap, fuel barrels, water barrels and general supplies are a few ideas I am playing with.

Posted Image
Another set from the Warlands range is the Maxwell car and Stranger figure (the bases on the figures still need finishing).

Posted Image
Although I am not going to arm too many cars in Blood & Fire I decided a road warrior car may be packing some heat, in this case a Spud Cannon (autocannon).

Posted Image
I quite like the Warlands stuff and I foresee myself buying some more vehicles in the future.

A few weeks ago I gave you the Dark Future Interceptors. Now I give you the Dark Future Renegades.

The Renegade is built from black market parts stolen from Motortown in Civilization and scavenged parts in sheds and caves across Civilization. They are confiscated by the Police when they are found. Despite this many Civilization gangs use them and they can be found out in the Wastelands.

Posted Image

Posted Image
This is a typical example of the sort of renegade to be found out in the wastes.

Posted Image
This car came from ebay and was badly battered. I added the mesh and girders to the frame as it was snapped. The paint has been touched up and weathered.

Posted Image
This Renegade is an typical Civilization gang example. The car came from my original Dark Future set. This is largely how I had customized it back in the day.

Posted Image
The only change I have made is to remove the laser turret and place the autocannon on the roof.

Posted Image

Posted Image
This renegade came from ebay and is a very good example.
Posted Image

Posted Image
This Renegade is in use as a escort with Stalkers from Civilization. The machine gun is made from a 1/35 thompson with the stock and grip removed.

Posted Image

Posted Image
These two renegades are in the service of the Warlord Blackskull. The car closest came from ebay. The other is from my original Dark Future set.

Posted Image

Posted Image
The plates and armour are from 1/76 model tanks.

Civilisation has a police force to maintain law and order across the state. The cruisers roam the roads and are fitted with machine guns.

Posted Image
The machine guns are trimmed down 1/35 MP44 assault rifles.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Just in case some cross country pursuit is needed or some extra muscle is needed for a shootout the Police have a Hummer.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image






I better press on with the figures soon. But there are so many cars to build. ha ha.

Thank you for looking.
