Painting Competition: Illegal Builds

Paint an illegal build and get it in BLASTER Vol.3!

As we previewed a few weeks back, Volume 3 of BLASTER features an awesome new expansion for Gaslands. I really want this expansion to feature awesome builds from the community and so we are looking for submissions.

As will become clear once you get into it, cars can get pretty crazy when using this expansion. To celebrate that, the theme of this painting competition is ILLEGAL VEHICLES. Your entry must be a vehicle that isn’t legal within the vehicle construction rules in Gaslands: Refuelled!

Build and paint an ILLEGAL VEHICLE, and submit a high-resolution image to for the chance to have your photos featured in the next volume of BLASTER, and receive both a physical and digital copy of that book.


To see your illegal build in the next Gaslands expansion:

  1. Build a vehicle that isn’t legal within the vehicle construction rules in Gaslands: Refuelled
  2. Paint her up nice
  3. Take a couple of clear, in focus, well lit photographs of her on a white background and email high resolution images to

Closing date: 6 January 2021

Helpful Notes

HIGH RESOLUTION means greater than 2000 pixels on its shortest side (ideally over 3000) and uncompressed, so likely at least 4MB filesize or larger. Smartphone cameras are to be avoided, borrow a camera off that photography nerd friend of yours.

BACKGROUNDS should be either flat white (use a big bit or paper or a bed-sheet) or a nicely laid-out diorama. I can’t accept things with workbench backdrops.

COPYRIGHT: avoid anything too obviously a big entertainment brand. Unless highly disguised, GW Ork buggies and Transformers toys will likely have to get turned down.
