Last night was my first attempt at Gaslands, yet another Osprey rulebook in their ever expanding range.
The initial impression is good, once you get over the number of counters and dice required to record a vehicles Gear, Damage and Hazard status, it plays quite quickly.
The start is pretty chaotic with all the vehicles bunched together, in fact in this game, most of the action seemed to take place around the first Gate which is not very far from the starting line.
I used two buggy’s and a heavily armoured and armed truck, the idea was for the buggy’s to race ahead and the truck to cause carnage behind. So obviously the buggy’s never got in front of the truck and the cunning pre-race strategy went straight out the window.
I like the game, this could well be one we come back to on a regular basis, we will have a rematch in a few weeks and should get to try out the Sponsor rules.
These vehicles are from Aberrant Games and are unmodified, my next Gaslands task will be to convert some Hot Wheels cars with some 40K Epic and Flames Of War accessories
