Made a new Gaslands warband with an animal skin theme

Back  in  December 2017, I made my first Gaslands warband (as discussed here), giving it a Mad Max look..This post is one of my most popular posts, with 2,000 hits alone.



I was quite pleased with the cars, but a recent game made me question if I should look at other factions. I then ran across these animal skin pattern cars at the Dollar store.. 4 of them for like $2.50.. I never heard of MonToy race cars, but they seemed good enough and the right size..



At that price, you can't go wrong.. So I bought a pack, and supplemented it with some Hot Wheels and decided to do a quirky animal skin paint job team just to get a reaction out of my friends, who are decidedly less weird than I am.

I kept away from the post-apoc dirty look of my other Gaslands team and did a nice clean animal skin collective look..


The ladybug gyrocopter

I also had some helicopters and decided to mount them, in case I choose the Rutherford faction. I decided to leave one unpainted in the original military look, but to paint the other one in my newly chosen theme and act as a gyrocopter.

I'll give the military helicopter to my friends if any of them want it for their team..



I greenstuffed some canopy to cover up the cockpit as well.



Since this was just a gyrocopter, I painted a ladybug pattern to keep with the dainty image of gyrocopters.





99.99% of the next 3 cars were already painted/printed on, so I just mounted some weapons.

Tiger stripe car



Lion skin car



Snake skin car



The Cheetah skin truck..

This truck I painted up to look like a cheetah, or something similar.. A quick paint
job..




The Dalmation truck..

I painted this one pretty fast as well..  Put on a large minigun on top and a buzz saw on the left side..



The Fish Rocket car

I decided to not paint stripes or dots or some other pattern on this, as the fish chassis was weird enough as it is and it would have been too much..




All in all, it did not take long and good enough for the tabletop.. You can get away with a minimal effort at this small 10-20mm level.. May they slaughter the enemy and get the much coveted ratings on Mars.
