Ruins and Robots

Well moving took a lot longer than expected. But everything is pretty much sorted and I am back to help fill up the internet.

Just a short post of some terrain I have put together and some new figures.painted over the past few months.

First up the ruins of some city. Destroyed in battle it is littered with abandoned cars, buses and trucks. Craters sit where buildings used to stand. All the buildings in the city have been destroyed.

Buildings are mdf kits from Empires at War

Cars, trucks and buses are from Aliexpress.

Highways are hot wheel tracks with the pylons from the model railway section of the hobby shop. Atlas I think.











Must be near the sea with all that rust!


When the wars are over it is time to clean up. What better to do this than a company of WallE bots.
Here we see a squadron of WallE bots entering the city, lots of work to do.





But there is some competition. What are these minion bots up to? Some evil plan no doubt. Something is hiding out in the ruins of the city.



I think that these are meant to be Not R2-D2 bots but I like them better as minions.

22C - toot port attack

toot ground assault

As the sound of the toot DroneZ faded into the distance, with only the crackling flames and small explosions remaining as a memory of the battle a new wave of sound approached.

Somehow toot had moved a significant force of HumanZ, BusZ and TankZ past the guards and into assault positions. Only just in time were the ferals able to organise their defence after being warned by the early toot DroneZ attack.

toot forces rush forward while ferals forces wipe the sleep from their eyes and move into firing positions in each building.




toot BusZ and TankZ move through the centre of the battlefield, smashing feral bikes, utes and trucks. On the flanks the HumanZ assault the feral buildings. The right side of the feral port gets the most attention and many humans are destroyed by the zombie like HumanZ.

On the left side, concentrated fire power destroys most of the HumanZ and their assault fails.

The end of the final turn, the toot forces have been almost totally destroyed, only one TankZ and one BusZ are left and decide that the intelligence they contain in their memories is more valuable than any additional feral casualties, therefore they make a quick exit.



While the ferals claim a victory the explosions and fires show the cost.


A view from the sea, flame engulfs the port.


HumanZ casualties are terrible but toot knows there are plenty of them and more are ready each year.

Feral casualties are also high


Rules: I use Fubar SciFi rules. toot HumanZ bases count as one figure, the feral infantry count a figure for every model.

toot are always elite so move and fire most turns.

ferals count as veteran.

toot server main control unit. - the HumanZ have failed once again against the feral. It is time to start producing the RoBroZ. Rumours of a new human force continue to appear, nothing certain yet, but it does not pay to be unprepared. Orders go out to start building RoBroZ as well as to refurbish a space craft at Kennedy Space centre. You don't live forever by ignoring fate.

22C - DroneZ Dawn Attack


Situation

Once before a single toot DroneZ had attacked the port and destroyed a number of cars and trucks and sunk a ship that the ferals had converted for their use.

Since then, the ferals had kept a constant watch guarding against another attack. As they increased their resources they set up a watch tower on the sunken ship, one on each of their ships and submarine, and also on the tops of the buildings all armed with anti-aircraft machine guns.

Just as well, as early one morning six toot DroneZ attacked from the west in two groups of three.

In this battle the DroneZ will always go first. Only the ferals' AA is active to begin with, the rest of their units can start to activate from turn 3.

Turn 1

The DroneZ move and fire at the AA and destroy three of them plus a feral battle bus.
The remaining feral AA return fire and manage to destroy two DroneZ.

DroneZ blast the AA and battle bus but two dronez are shot down



Turn 2

The DroneZ continue their assault and target other feral vehicles. Two feral choppers are destroyed along with a truck and another AA gun is destroyed.

But the DroneZ pay the price of switching targets from the AA too soon and the ferals’ return fire downs three more of the DroneZ.


DroneZ cause a lot of damage but are in turn shot down.

Turn 3

The remaining DroneZ flees the battlefield.

Flames and explosions cover the battlefield


toot evaluates the data and determines that a further assault will be required. But how soon will that be?
