Eroc's Wasteland Garage: part 5

Pontiac Firebird & A-Team Van
I had always intended for these two to be part of a Team, but I was still thinking about a third vehicle. Then, like Hannibal always says: I love it when a plan comes together!

Never one to be satisfied, our first customer here at the Wasteland Garage returned in her Pontiac Firebird along with a Van and an El Camino. Madd Malice presented us with more than enough cans of juice to pay for the work on her Team vehicles.

Being a fan of Dr. Who the lads quickly salvaged an old dalek for the turret mounted weapons on the battle-van!
Dalek turret!
We added zip-tie armor strips and plasticard plating in strategic areas, and got to painting!

Armored up!
The El Camino was begging for some rear-facing weapons so we installed a pair of guns in the back. The same armor style from the van was carried over here as well for a cohesive look.

Dual rear-facing weapons!
Lastly we brought the Pontiac back in the garage for a little armor add-on and then gave the team a symbol across all the vehicles so you know who they belong to!

Eroc's Wasteland Garage: part 4

We really are getting a handle on things over here at the garage. Another satisfied customer for one of our custom creations just roared out of here in full throttle glory! This time we present the Spike-o-saur, for our favorite lady of the wastes "Red" Betty.

"Red" wanted us to get her car ready for picking off zombies and pedestrians so the boys got right to work.
Step 1
  We clipped out the windshield and put in some screen-mesh, drilled out the front lights and added spikes. Used Citadel Stirland Battlemire along the running boards, and gave the hull an overall coat of red paint.

step 2
Drybrushed Ironbreaker over all the metal bits, then added 5 spikes to each side just behind the cockpit. The spikes were painted black then drybrushed with the Ironbreaker. Once dried the whole car was covered with Nuln Oil.

Step 3
The car was now gone over with Typhus corrosion in all the places we thought would look cool, then followed with drybrushing of Ryza Rust. A bit a Nuln Oil was slap-dashed about once more and a bit of Ushtabi Bone was drybrushed on as well.

Step 4
The completed Spike-o-saur!

There might be an Oil-slick dropper in the back end but we can neither confirm nor deny this fact.

Betty gives Eroc's Wasteland Garage a full belly "RRRAARRGGHH!"

More cars coming!!

Eroc's Wasteland Garage: part 3

The boy's have been hard at work here in the wasteland, we had a special order for a car come in from our favorite End-time's man-of-god Karl the Preacher.

Karl the Gaslands Preacher
Karl had some specific items he wanted attached to his car, most notably the dozen sticks of TNT!! He said he didn't need any guns attached just the bronze head and hands of Saint Hamish guardian of the burnt highway. We couldn't turn Karl away because he was rolling in Cans so I had the lads get stuck in.

Step 1
We added some window screen mesh for a windshield, wooden placards to the front and one on the rear bucket. Saint Hamish was attached to the roof spoiler and the TNT was attached to either side just behind the windows.

Step 1a
A string of barb-wire was wrapped around the spoiler and Saint Hamish, then everything was given a black basecoat.

step 2
The entire car was drybrushed in Ushtabi-bone, followed by a drybrush of Ironbreaker on the engine, front ram, the rear bucket and windscreen. Saint Hamish got bronzed at this point as well.

Typhus corrosion was liberally applied in the wheels, ram, engine and car itself. Follow up with Ryza rust drybrush over the corrosion areas, then lots of Nuln Oil. Highlight the wooden placards and add some Holy slogans as suggested by Karl! Oh yeah and the TNT was Jokaero orange.

 We left the rear-bucket open as I plan to add a crazed crew member in ther hurling molotov's when I get some little guys.
Mars is a Lie!
Karl the Preacher was very happy with this build, forked over the rest of the Cans then tore out of here screamin' about bringing the fury of Mother Earth down on those Martians or some nonsense...

                                Bye Karl! hope we don't see you again anytime're weird.

More antics from the Wasteland Garage coming soon!
