unfortunately not, I still need to finish work on my flat in order to even get anywhere to paint and model (and I've been sick my last days off)

probably going to take the easy option and just roll with the warlands minis in the end

I don't know if anyone has posted this before, but it looks like Hotwheels has some pre-weaponed vehicles:

Ah the first hot wheel with weapons the Mega-Force buggy repainted. The other hot wheels look new. I'll have to give them a look. Very cool!

I have presented below a list of Hot Wheels models that either feature weapons or are models that have been featured in autoduelling media.

* Urban Agent
* 1973 Ford Falcon XB (Mad Max-style, yellow-and-black paint scheme released in 2010)
* Sting Rod
* Sting Rod II
* '69 Ford Mustang
* Sol-Aire CX-4
* Roll Cage
* Enforcer / Megadestroyer
* Urban Agent
* Barbaric
* Buzzsaw

The red car in the Attack Pack mentioned on the Toys R' Us Web site has jet engines and two machine guns. I cannot remember the name of this model, but I will post it when I look at my car collection this week.


The South Texas Diecast Web site has photographs of each of these models.

Sol-Aire CX-4 is a near-perfect replica of the Interceptor from Games Workshop's 3D autoduelling game Dark Future.

Roll Cage is a near-perfect replica of the Renegade from Games Workshop's 3D autoduelling game Dark Future.

Enforcer, originally released as the Megadestroyer in 1982 from the movie Megaforce, has already been mentioned.

The '69 Ford Mustang can be used for the 1969 Ford Mustang Boss modified for highway combat in Knight Rider 2010.

Barbaric and Buzzsaw are models that are appropriate for Carmageddon-type events.


Stan Johansen Miniatures, Games Workshop's Dark Future and Cell Entertainment's KRASH are the only professionally published sources of weapons and accessories for Hot Wheels I can remember at this time.

The Hot Wheels-compatible autoduelling miniature games released over the past five years may also have weapons that can be mounted on Hot Wheels models. One page on my Web site has a list of these games.
