MAD MAX CAR COUNTERS

"I am the Nightrider. I'm a fuel injected suicide machine. I am the rocker, I am the roller, I am the out-of-controller!" - Nightrider
 
 
 
Well, I have been working feverishly on these Mad Max Car counters, going back and forth from my dvd movie copy making sure that the representation was as acurate as possible, adding as much detail as was worth adding, I think I like redesigned them like four times or something lol, it was fun trying to recreate them as Car Wars counters and trying to make them as acurate as I could, I think they turned out alright, I did a test print of them and placed an actual Car Wars counter next to them and couldn't tell the difference quality wise, I think I impressed my self Hahaha.








So basically I desgined all the MFP vehicles, Big Bopper, March Hare, Max's MFP Interceptor and the Nightrider's Pursuit Special, for the rest of the vehicles that will play a role in the scenario I will use standard Car Wars counters, this includes Gosling 1 and all of Toecutters motorcycle gang, truth be told I actually started these counters a couple of years ago, so most of the foundational work in photoshop had already been done, I  just made them better graphically, and added some more authentic detail, redid the colours a bit so they printed a little more vibrant (they were a little dark before) and I touched up some of the striping, so yeah, there you have it. FYI I based the MFP vehicles off some actual Ford Falcon blueprints, can you get anymore authentic than that ? Hahaha I think not.

I, too, am wondering if it would be possible to download these counters from somewhere, or receive them via email.
