Car of the Day: Lo-Beam

I was tempted to use this car for the Killer Kart, what with the low slung body option and all.  But really, if you’re going to drive with the most expensive weapon around, you’ve got to put it in a classy chassis like this one.  The basic inaccuracy of...

Car of the Day: Assassin

A rocket launcher, with a gunner.  That’s a strong combination.  You’re more accurate than most weapons, and do more damage than most weapons, too.  Not only that, but this thing is a tank. That gunner isn’t going anywhere with more than 130 armor protecting him. I don’t much care...

Car of the Day: Dagger

Dagger, I barely knew her!  The micro-missile launcher mounted on the roof of the Dagger isn’t in a turret.  It does, however, look just like every other micro-missile launcher on my other cars.  So it’s got that going for it.  The ram plates on my car vary as much...

Car of the Day: Omega-5

The title on this car didn’t show up nearly as well as I’d hoped.  Ah well, this is probably my least favorite car.  Those body blades are useless until some 1:64 dudes show up in the arena.  Otherwise, this weakling has one heavy punch and that’s about it.  You...

Car of the Day: Slugger

Did you notice the name painted on the hood of this car?    All my cars have that, to help rookies identify each one. The design of this piece of Louisville steel calls for 5 heavy rockets – that’s a lot of punch, but not a lot of staying...

Under Heaven

For everything, turn, turn, turn.  But make sure you use one of these bad boys to make it accurate.  Copied, glued to foamboard, cut out, and covered with packing tape, this is one heavy duty turn key. I thought about making multiple copies, but decided that one would be...

Now For Wrack, Now For Ruin

One thing that I cannot abide is two-dimensional markers in the midst of a three-dimensional game.  Even when it comes to something like debris tiles.  So here’s roughly 20 pieces of D1 hazard.  That’s not nearly enough for a proper 10 car battle royale, but I’d rather have quality...

My New Box Set

With apologies to the Barenaked Ladies, here’s a shot of my full Car Wars Box Set, all packed up and ready for the Friday Night Fights. So that’s ten cars in a compact foam protector, all of their drop weapons, the drop cloth, five terrain items, every rule book...

Drop Your Weapons

In Car Wars, you often want to drop your weapons.  Here are a few shots of the drop weapon templates for my next fight. Here are two of ten spike counters.  These are simple star shaped confetti pieces with a short (2mm) length of cut wire run through a...

The Most Important Thing About Car Wars

The Cars.  Without them, the game would just be Wars.  I’ve played the card game, and it is not fun at all. I’ve got ten cars arena ready.  Here are the first five along with thoughts on the design of each car. Killer Kart.  Solid, dependable little car with...
