Saga: Normannen

That's a post that's been slumbering in the drafts for a long time. Michi therefore instructed me to publish the thing now and write that he was too stupid to send it himself. :-)

Bolt Action: SdKfz 234, Puma

The SdKfz 234/Puma is a very welcome addition to my German army, which mainly consist of infantry so far. The kit is from Warlord Games/Italeri, scale 1/56. All parts were very accurate and easy to assemble. However, the level of detail of the suspension and axles is exaggeratedly high and not required for this type of wargaming model. The assembly was still fun. Afterwards I painted the model mainly with different airbrush layers, a few details with the brush. The dirt was applied with Vallejo pigments.

Gaslands: Wasteland Whackers

The Wasteland again: This time there were three teams competing for the flight to Mars. Doc lent some of his vehicles to Zac to introduce the game, but Zac had built a vehicle list before. That meant that all of his cars were actually buggies per definition and his pickup truck was a car in fact. Confused now? The Table Terror Team was...
Doc rolled highest and got the pole position, Zac and Michi queued up clockwise behind Doc's VW pickup truck. Michi's Corvette left a large blob of oil behind - right in the gateway of Gate 1.
Mayhem and carnage commenced immediately caused by bad driving and good shooting. The crowds went mad, the action got louder and Zac learnt the hard way how it feels to be a wasteland racer. However it was Michi's performance car that was the first vehicle to be wrecked - even before reaching Gate 2!
Zac managed to get into leading the field, being the first to pass Gate 2, but soon after failed to make a turn tight enough to stay on the table with his car - and off he went, never to be seen again. A lot of vehicles decided to drive on in reverse after they had spinned or crashed due to bad driving.
One of Zac's buggies made it to Gate 3, still in reverse gear, while Doc blew up the VW pickup in an explosion after he had hit two hard obstacles in a single move and exhausted the hull completely. The wreck simply rolled on and caught fire. The grenades aboard made it frag:
Doc wasn't the only one to detonate one of his vehicles: Michi blew up one of his bikes when it crashed into Gate 2.
Time was running short then during Turn 3 and Michi had to leave the wasteland. Zac was announced being winner of the race and got shot to Mars. At least that is what the spectators were told, he is yet to be seen again...

Second game of wastelands, three teams - triple fun!
