Der Eisen Maulwurf, Part 2

Mad Science begins to take form...

The schlepper portion of Der Eisen Maulwurf. Made from some pvc pieces, plasticard, and a HO scale pipeworks.

The whole kit and kaboodle together. Again, mostly all pvc pieces, plasticard, and the auger from part 1.

A view of the rear with it's massive exhaust and turbine propulsion. Made from a Christmas ribbon spool.

Last thing to add will be rivets and some hatches. Maybe a few more details here and there, but the bulk is done and even with proper ventilation I'm still a little high right now from the pvc glue ;).

We need meds, grub, and...


Meanwhile, inside the Aunt Annie's Pretzel Compound...

Our 6 players (survivors) are tasked with finding much needed food and morphine. Arriving by Ice Cream truck we quickly deploy.

Some of the first Zeds are spotted shambling toward our apathetic Farmer/leader Jeb.

Ol' Jeb goes a hunting in the ruins, Charo and the Drug Dealer go for a flank while civic leaders Gina and The Fireman go for a far right. The PD support Jeb.

BRAINNSSSS!

Houses are searched to no avail.

Team Charo making their way to the Gun Store/Daycare center

Team Fireman

Making our way, the only way we know how...

PD dropping some ZEDS.

Ol' Jeb takes a bite.

"Back to the van!"

End of days...

Everyone back to the van!

A big thanks to Chris of our local Northern Lancaster Wargamers for putting this on for us. These are his home brew rules and everyone had a good time. Highlights include some desperate jumps from second story windows and wicked shotgun shooting. In the end I believe Charo had the most merit badges. Until next time...

Disposable Heroes Coffin for Seven Brothers


Somewhere in Germany, 1945. The SS try to take the vital Fudge District back from the Russian Horde.

It's a long road to Der Fudge Haus.

A methodical advance under withering Russian fire.

The Soviets stand ready to defend.

Schnell!

The T-34 is destroyed by the fast moving Puma that hits it on a flank.

The SS move up to assault Der Fudge Haus.


SS Pioneers hold down the flank.

Sniper!

The SS close in on the Russians.

Still smoldering T-34.


The Russians assault the lone Puma.

The Puma is immobilized.

A fun casual game in the dying days of the Reich. Special thanks to Keith for hosting and Mike for running the Russians.
