The pit slave transporter tank – a modified Malcador – is now complete. The pit slaves have also temporarily stolen the tracked vehicle I made for a bounty hunter gang.
Vehicles are very quick to paint, this probably took about 5 hours (not including time spent swearing at the airbrush when it clogs). Lots of mess too with all the salt and pigments. ‘Quick and messy’ is pretty much how I roll when it comes to painting.
The pit slaves had an outing in the Ash Wastes the other day, for some of them it was quite a memorable event (and possibly the first time they had seen daylight in a while). Pitboss Kuno got some satisfaction out of headbutting a cocky Mechanicus magos to death, but ultimately the day ended in defeat when a lone gretchin stole the objective vehicle out from under everyone’s noses and made good his escape.
We used a combination of Ash Wastes, Necromunda and Inquisimunda rules for a four-way, vehicle-heavy battle. I lost most of my gang to an Acuitor assassin who eventually got car-jacked and ran over, and a giant, terror-causing scavvy beast ran riot for a while when its crew got repeatedly fragged. A lone servitor got run over no less than four times before the rampaging beast ate him. I made some of this scenery when I was 12.
