    I have been adding to my Gaslands collection, the next car is this weaponized Beetle, or Herbie on a bad day… There’s more pics and some more info on the blog:

    That Gatling Gun will shoot through the wheel well and tire…

    Nice!  But if you’re going to call it after the Herbster then you’ll need a really faded number and racing stripe on the hood

    That Gatling Gun will shoot through the wheel well and tire…

    I assumed it was in the stowed position, and would, in action, be elevated into the firing position by a servo-assisted cantilever robo-arm arrangement of unnecessary complexity, making strange whirring noises, like a piece of Gerry Anderson gadgetry.

    That’s certainly how I’d design it.

    All the best,

    John.

    Cheers chaps, yep, I did think about the stripe and number, but maybe on the next Beetle that I do. The gun actually looks only like that in the pic, IRL it is slightly proud of the bodywork.

    Ok but you’ll shoot your headlights off.

    Nicely done — but I would have clicked on that title regardless of the results.

    @KB: Ha ha ha, fair enough, but I think the driver may have more on his mind in the Gaslands arena…

    @HvS I’m the results of clicking were good! Thanks!

    Very nice looking!  Obviously you are aware that very few car washes exist in the post-apocalypse.   Aqua cola is simply too valuable!

    I offered to put on a Gaslands game at the club this Sunday.  I’m quite looking forward to it!

    Cheers Tony, yes, the car washes were the first to go, what a tragedy!

    We are going to play our first game this Sunday as well (after Fiasco), I’m also looking forward to seeing how it goes.
