Slick New Drop Weapons

Two quick picks today of the latest drop weapons.  Oil slicks in both the standard and the high temperature variety.  One shot shows of the flame coloring, and the other shows how glossy the slicks look in decent lighting. The oil is a 50/50 mix of black paint and glue.  The flames are white construction papered colored with crayon and cut to fit.  They'd look better with more wavy flames, as opposed to the regular tooth-like pattern, but I wanted something that would pack up well and last through heavy play.  

Next up:  Cheese it!


  1. I particularly like the flame effect - one of those things that's very hard to get right in models, like water, but this makes it very obvious what's going on.

    Looking forward to see what you've done about smoke...

  2. You can see my smoke counters in the background of the pictures in this post: http://warinabox.blogspot.com/2011/05/most-important-thing-about-car-wars.html

    I'll make sure to add a post with some better pictures and descriptions. Thanks for the nudge.

  3. Did you mix first then apply? or did apply glue then painted it?

  4. Tried it both ways - painting once it dried looked really bad. These were mixed when wet and dried nice and shiny.

  5. Ok, kool, thanks for the advice!
