Arkanaut Frigate

This is the first GW model I have seen in ages that I could be persuaded to purchase, especially with my steampunk fixation still running high. I say “could”, as at £50 (US$80) it is a significant amount of cash.

It should be available with 10% off from an independent reseller, which would make it £45.

Prussians vs US Navy

The Prussians and US Navy came to blows again recently following the latest update to the Steam Wars rules.
I got to use my new rubble games mat for this game, which is nice but very “busy”. I need to make some more terrain pieces to break it up a bit.
The US Navy skimmer is fine looking model and Mr Steinberg has it supported by some transparent tube so it can glide over low obstacles.
The large TT Combat warehouse is a good sized model but suffers from only having one doorway, I am going to have to add at least one more.
The two sides had plenty of buildings and cover to fight over. The recent rule changes have worked really well and I am reasonably confident in saying that the rules are finalised. There is still some work to do on points costs to balance things out, but it is nearly there.
The Ironclad Quad Walker is another of my favourite models in the US Navy force.
The revised rules for heavy infantry make them a bit easier to kill but that does not stop me from fielding my Rackham Jump Troopers.
The latest addition to the Scrunts and their first outing was a Ramshackle Vole Light Tank. I may have to add a machine gun to these models as just having a medium AP cannon leaves them vulnerable to infantry assault.

Ramshackle Voles

The latest addition to the Prussian Scrunt army are three Ramshackle Voles, or Wuhlmaus as I prefer to call them in the Prussian force. These are light tanks and come in at fewer points than the heavier Pugs and Stugs.
All have interchangeable weapons, the second option being some sort of Dalek looking steampunky gun, which I will have to get a picture of sometime.
