Ready to Paint the Arena Red

Here they are, the ten pedestrians ready to bail out of their cars and run for safety.  These were painted in a rush – 1 hour total for the lot of them.  I used The Dip method of painting, so they look a lot more grubby than I had...

More Shameless Commerce

Keeping with the local Hawaii flavor, 808 Armor is Hawaii’s largest independent armor importer and installation service provider.  They also sponsor the weekly amateur night.  But their community support doesn’t end with the Hawaii Autoduel scene. They also founded and run the Adopt a Mutant Foundation.  Remember, folks, for...

Revenue Streams

You’re probably going to have to click on those pictures to get a better look at the billboards.  I realized this past week that something was missing from my arena – something to give it the look of a true sports facility and not just a random parking lot....

Pedestrians Double Crossing

On those rare special occasions when your driver actually walks away from a wreck, you need a figure for the other cars’ aim.  Caesar Miniatures sells a box of Modern Militia (Asian and Somali Militia) that should serve just fine.  A lot of these guys are obviously Arab terrorist types with...

Slick New Drop Weapons

Two quick picks today of the latest drop weapons.  Oil slicks in both the standard and the high temperature variety.  One shot shows of the flame coloring, and the other shows how glossy the slicks look in decent lighting. The oil is a 50/50 mix of black paint and...

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...
