Gaslands Power Trip

Gaslands electrical van
approx. 20mm scale

Danger, danger
High voltage
When we touch, when we kiss
Danger, danger
High voltage
When we touch, when we kiss, when we touch




All sorts of vehicles end up on the dangerous roads of Gaslands... this one seems to be a common utility van that's been armed with a potent but experimental Arc Lighting Projector! Stranger things have happened...


(Yes, it's absolutely based on the government van that Eleven flips over in "Stranger Things" S1).  Stuff I like about this project: its weapon is a Zoids part that has literally sat in my bitz box for 30 years :) Stuff I don't like so much: my terrible freehand lettering skills are on full display... :(


I also dug into my stash of printed materials and whipped up a basic gasoline storage tank terrain piece or objective marker (I actually have no idea if Gaslands uses these).

  1. Gaslands, Zoids parts and, crucially, Electric Six - a band that I have genuinely seen over fifteen times (plus solo Dick Valentine solo acoustic gigs) - lyrics.

    Perfect start to 2020. Happy New Year!

      I actually first heard that song from the robo-sexy cover version by Cybertronic Spree: https://youtu.be/BINnvAuck2U

  2. With that van I could . . .take you to a gaybarrr! :D oh my, that album.

    Didn't know the cybertronic spree made a cover, gotta check.

    Cheetoe is damn right: zoids, gaslands... This post has it all except for some naked pictures of your mothe... ...seriously Dick Valentine's lyrics always pack a good laugh.

    Happy New Year both!

  3. Off with a blast!
    Terrific van, I like the rear gun: simple yet highly effective.
    Happy New Year, all the best for 2020!

  6. This is so cool!
    Never played any sort of "Carmageddon" miniatures game but your work just brought me some ideas for converting 1/48 scale battle car...
