Hello everyone, its been fairly quiet around here, so I thought I would just make a quick
mention of some facts, as some of you know, I live in a two storey apartment, this combined with record temperatures here in Melbourne, Australia, of continual 30+ degree (86+ fahrenheit) days have contributed to me doing very little to no painting of miniatures, its warm up here most of the time but when you throw in continual heat day after day, painting becomes very difficult, even with the air con on I find that the paint still drys very quickly, pretty much not even worth doing, painting will resume when it cools down.
So, what does a fella like me do when its too hot to paint? Breakout my fave Board game of course! Car Wars, published by Steve Jackson Games all the way back in the eighty's (where is that Hot tub time machine gone ?), it is a game based sometime in the future where civilization as we know it has kinda broken down and Auto duelling is a way of life, you may or may not remember this game, but either way it was my favorite board game as I was growing up, getting back to this game was always on the cards but fortune smiles on me once more, because that time has arrived.
As the title of this post suggests I will be doing Car Wars with a Mad Max theme, infact, my first game of Car Wars will be based on the car chase scene from the first Mad Max movie, rules wise I will be using a combination of the Car Wars Compendium 2.5 rules and the rules found in an article of the 'Autoduel Quarterly' the official Car Wars Magazine, the article was called 'Chassis and Crossbow : Low-Tech Autoduelling, they are a classic set of rules that were almost made for Mad Max gaming (with minimal modifying), I will design some game counters and terrain and report back to this blog regularly with updates, eventually culminating in a battle report, this should not take me long to put together (I've heard those words before...).
