Itty bitty chariots

Faustus Furius is a scale agnostic racing game for chariots/vehicles of any period or culture. Due to spacial considerations, and compounded by my love of 6mm, I decided to build up my collection racing chariots in this fine is diminutive scale. 

For a decent race, you'll need at least four chariots. There are seven balanced classes of chariot in the game, each of which have their own positive and negative attribute. For playtesting, I decided I needed to have two racers of each class to allow players the freedom to choose their preferred playing style.

Below are some pretty rough photographs of each of my little guys showing both their active and crashed forms. It is feasible to just mark a chariot with a crash marker in the game, but obviously a crashed chariot looks... well ... crashed.
