Ready for the tournament at the start of the month, I painted a large number of vehicles for my Neon City board. These were bought from Antenociti's Worksop, one of the premier sources for Infinity-appropriate terrain. I have written about their products in the past, and always found them to be high quality sculpts that painted up nicely. As you can see, they were a lot of fun to paint, and very easy with just the right amount of detail for terrain - not too much to distract the eye or take up too much time painting, but enough to look great on the tabletop.
This kind of scatter terrain really brings a table to life, and though it might not provide much in the way of blocking firelanes and covering flanks, it makes a board interesting and may even play a pivotal role in giving a lone model a much-needed cover bonus. Filling the streets with cars, abandoned or otherwise, adds a narrative element and also improves the gaming experience.
I will not be writing much more in this post, suffice to say that I think these models were worth the investment and will be featuring on my urban boards a lot in the future!
|Nomads utilise the vehicles of the Neon City to cover their advance|
|Ideal height for the Alguacil!|
|The "parked" Bulabok City Cars are upright to take up less space, and so also provide a higher silhouette for the discerning soldier seeking cover|
|Purple, red and olive green bring some colour to the table|
|The "driving" Bulabok City Cars were painted in yellow, turquoise and blue. I always struggle with yellow, and painted the mistakes as damage and weathering (from battle or otherwise)|
|Contrasting colours on the headlights were fun to paint - I really enjoy working on lenses, lights and windows.|
The windows on the vehicles were painted in a similar manner to my method for painting the ocean - using the same colours but with far finer lines and sparing highlights. I like the effect a lot, as you might be able to tell! Gloss varnish before the final varnish gives a subtle sheen

|The Eco Pangit City Cars are a little more detailed, and look good with a two-tone colour scheme|
|These models will provide good cover for an infantry model|
|Painting the silver on the "red" City Car was a lengthy process! I am not well versed in Non-Metallic Metal|
|The Taruca Motorbikes offer something a little more exciting for the driver of the future|
|The bases are not integral, but I chose to use them to stabilise the miniature. They were painted to match the grey roads of my urban board|
|Some of the oddest models in the range, the Kuripot Personal Transports are simple, one-person vehicles|
|Compact, but with a surprising amount of storage!|
|The entire motor pool together - nice and colourful, with a blend of futuristic cars, industrial machinery and rugged military-style vehicles|
