"Gaslands" - War Rig vs Highway Patrol Battle Report

My “Gaslands” Journey, Continued

Greetings, weary travelers! As you know we have been going through the Gaslands: Refuelled game quite a bit every Saturday and it seems that now is the time where things get a little bit… Batty.

“Gaslands” – War Rig vs Highway Patrol Battle Report

Gaslands: Refuelled is an interesting game. Recently it became known that Osprey Games had run out of their initial stock of the game’s rules manual, and it’s getting increasingly harder to get ahold of a physical copy from online retailers for that reason.

Journey Into the "Gaslands", Part 4

Hobby: Building The War Rig For “Gaslands: Refuelled”

Gaslands: Refuelled is a game very unlike most any other I’ve played.

Hobby: Journey Of A “Gaslands” Newcomer, Part 2

Hey all! Last Saturday (September 21st), I wrote an article detailing the first steps I took towards playing the game Gaslands, by Osprey Games. Therein, I managed to get myself about nine die-cast miniature cars (Hot Wheels, for those wondering), and converted exactly three. Getting a decent paint job onto any of those vehicles was […]

Hobby: Journey of a “Gaslands” Newcomer

“Gaslands: Refueled”, a new edition of the “Gaslands” game by Osprey Games, has come out and with it, a new batch of miniature wargame players have arisen from the woodwork.
