Alien vs Predator – the hunt begins v2 painted stuff and review

I always was a big Alien and Predator fan and ever since I’ve been playing board and tabletop games I wanted to get some cool miniatures from that franchise. Prodos Games finally released a board/ tabletop game with some beautifully sculpted miniatures. Last week I got myself a copy of the 2nd edition board game and the Alien Queen expansion (I will present her in a different post).

Now most of you know that Prodos released the first edition of AvP: The hunt begins via Kickstarter and performed really bad concerning all the backers who still didn’t receive anything. I was not a backer back then and I dont want to write about that topic so I’ll just give you a little review of what I think about this box with the main focus on the miniatures, in comparison with the first edition box of a friend (who didn’t receive his via Kickstarter but bought it himself, whoops last KS comment, promise).

Elefant – Heavy support for my Germans

HQ company, 653. sPzJgAbt.

While playing a lot more Flames of War since V4 was released I decidet to ad a heavy tank destroyer to my germans. An Elefant. While these vehicles are heavily armed and armoured they are very point heavy and unreliable if you have to cross obstacles. But I like the somehow odd look of these beasts so I included one in my Panzergrenadier list.

V8 Interceptor – the start of some mad max style rules

There are a lot of Mad Max fans in my local hobby club. Some of them are converting small toy cars into nice tabletop miniatures. I joined in with my own V8 Interceptor conversion. We are working on a ruleset for a Mad Max styled combat with cars, to use the vehicles on the tabletop.

The V8 Interceptor driven by Max Rockatansky is one of my favorite movie cars so I built that iconic vehicle as my first conversion. I used a Hot Wheels ´73 Ford Falcon as a base.

Flames o War starter box – the Germans

I build a Panzer III with the long 5cm gun and a Panzer IV with the short 7,5cm howitzer

Since we are starting into the new 4th edition ruleset of Flames of War, I decidet to get me one of the El Alamein starter sets. Inside you will find everthing ou need to start the game. 2 German tanks (1 Panzer III and 1 Panzer IV) 3 british tanks (2 Crusader and 1 Grant), one rulebook, unit cards, dice, 2 dimentional cardboard terrain and markers and some quickstart rules.

The new plastic tanks are reall nice kits which could be build really fast. For some demo games next week I started painting the german DAK Panzer III and IV tanks. To bring some life in the one colour camoulage I tried colour modulation for the first time. Again, a reminder for me to finally gat a damn airbrush…
