Let's Talk About Gaslands
The Portland Game Store in north Portland has a nascent Gaslands night on Tuesday that I’ve started attending. We’ll see how that develops.

You want some cars? I have tons as I went on a purchasing binge there for a bit. What are you looking for?
PM me, I can send some cash along for your trouble/shipping.
I know the vehicle types are the book, but they're split over two tables several pages away from each other, so the Quick Reference PDF is pretty handy:

The turn order reference on the last page is also immensely helpful while playing.
Finally went ahead and primed and did some painting/weathering. My partner and I sat down and worked on 3 cars, I'll be sending them to my nephew tomorrow as the first tranche (he's at the grandparents, so I don't want to send him all the terrain and shit since he's got to fly home).
It was... a lot more fun than I thought? I still have a lot of built up anxiety about painting from when I was 15 and this really pretty much had none of that, I also had a tremendous amount more patience (and money, tbh) to try fancier techniques than just slapping base coat on. Gaslands is a great way to get people into painting, made me want to do more and buy more paints, etc. Maybe work on my Armada ships? I dunno.
Thanks again to Disgustipater for the 3d printing and the painting tips. I'm kind of bummed my necron silver came in a (new) pot that was pretty much already dried out. I mixed in water and used it to sponge but it was just not right, just chunky and dry.
