New Products - Carwars Revisited Combat Arenas and Accessories

Combat Arena Sets

Some games are so good that they have an extended life, SJ Games Carwars is one of those games. With the release of its 5th version of rules releases for $3 and the game now scaled for Hotwheels/Matchbox, 1/64th scale cars it is a great starter game for new and old players looking for a change. The only drawback is the presentation and we hope to change that with some new dual purpose 28mm/Carwars scale kits.

Arena System

This outer wall system is built with expansion and customization in mind. With 2 different sized wall sections and connector blocks you can build arenas as small as or as large as your space will allow. Wall sections feature an sloped base with "blast/impact" pads and are pre-cut for 1/4" x 1/8" magnets and hex nuts (not included) to help keep everything aligned. To connect the wall sections there a 2 different types of post, 90 degree and 45 degree.

Arena Walls 11" (11.5"x1.5"x4") 2 pack w/ 4 mini barricades CW-AW11 $13
Arena Walls 5" (5.25"x1.5"x4") 4 pack CW-AW05 $13
Square corner blocks (1"x1"x4") 5 pack CW-AWBC $8
45 degree corner block (1.5"x1"x4") 4 pack CW-AWBA $8 

Arena Billboards

There is one thing that never changes, someone always has something to sell. And what is racing without the advertisers. This is designed as an in arena display. It has a 2 sided configuration with lighting heads over each side to add a little more realism to the design. The kit also features the same "blast/impact" pads around the base to protect the advertising.

2 Sided Billboards (2x5x3.5") 3 pack CW-2BB01 $10

Mini Barricades and Light Towers

The arena can be a dark places when you have night events and that is bad for ratings. You need a well lit space so the so the cameras can see every bit of the action. With that in mind we have added a series of light towers that fit the bill nicely. The towers have a 4 light head impact bumpers to hopefully keep drivers on the track and out of the stands.

Cube Barrier w/ Light Tower (3x3x3.5") 4 Pack CW-LT $10
Cube Barriers (3x3x1") 8 pack CW-CB $10 (not shown)
Mini Barricade pack, 10 small and 6 w/ signs (2x1x1 and 2x1x2") CW-MBP01 $12

Elevated Roadways

With so much focus in combat being centered ground level armor, front/back and sides, people tend to forget the top and bottom of the vehicle. That mistake will cost them. Now arena combat just got allot tougher. These ramps, platforms and curves means the battle no longer needs to take place on a single level. Designed with low bumpers help notify the drivers where the road ends and the drop off begins. Wide enough to go around 3 wide to setup some killer combat options the fans will love.  Just be careful where you set them, you don't want cars flying off into the stands. Bad for concession stand sales.

Elevated Roadways
Straights (6x11" each, 2 pack)   CW-SS01 $22
Ramps (6x11 each, 2 pack )        CW-RM01 $22

4-Way Intersection   CW-INT02 $12 (not shown)

Combat Markers and Accessory Templates

Scaling up the game also means it is time to upgrade to larger and more dynamic markers and game tokens. Larger turning keys, power up points and even smoke/oil slick counters will help you complete your ultimate arena.

New Products - Expandable Paint Dropper Bottle Wall Storage System

If you build models of any type, trains, planes, cars or miniatures, paint storage is normally a sticking point. As your collection grows this becomes an even bigger problem. For those of us with adequate desk space kits like our Stepped Storage Units or the Master Collection are the ultimate solution for high density paint storage. But what if you have an even smaller space to work with or are just starting out and need a system that grows with your paint needs? We have a solution for you. 

The Expandable Paint Dropper Bottle Wall Storage System was designed to address this problem directly. Each section contains 7 shelves each able to hold 6 standard dropper bottles, 42 paints in total. Paints can be stored either direction for faster identification. The bottles are also fully supported and  so there are less chances for them to fall out as paints are removed and replaced. Each unit is pre-drilled to attach multiple sections together to create seamless storage walls. The units include wall mounting keyholes and reinforcing strips to ensure a solid, sag free attachment to walls. 

The system is available in 2 sizes a single 42 bottle or a triple 126 bottle unit.

Expandable Wall System 42

It is holiday season and I figured rather than deal with the whole get up at an ungodly hour, fight your way through a crowd of grumpy people to get one of the 4 items they have in stock for the sale you were waiting for I would skip all of that and just give a simple discount. Quick and easy. No secret handshake or limited to stock on hand or any other craziness.

So to start things off I am going to give a 15% off discount on all paint storage systems. This covers the Master Collection sets, the stepped storage systems and the v-store kits . If you have been searching for a new way to store your paints now is the time to tackle that problem.

Lets follow that up with a 10% off on all Welcome to Rock Ridge sets. This includes the package deals. How's that for a nice way to kick off the season with a new table. Imagine the already discounted $411 value Rock Ridge Township set for $333.

The final part is new kits and packages for modern and sci-fi. I have been previewing a few of these over the last few weeks and starting Monday they will be added to the site. So stay tuned for those. They will be listed in their own special page. Holiday Specials!!!

Thanks everyone for a great year!
