Post Apocalyptic Kit Bashed Thunder Road Throwdown

The Secondhand Lions faithful brotherhood of war game enthusiast convened at the casa de Conn for a play-test of Axles and Alloys.  Ted has scaled up a 1/64 Hot-wheels version of Thunder Road and we also want to use the kit-bashed cars for other mayhem and destruction games so our club has decided to try out the free available rules called Axles and Alloys.
Let's look in on the rumble and thunder of our first game.  Here we see the good guys in blue trying desperately to secure fuel for the citizens of Summitville.  "Motherload" is the name of our fine community's fuel transport and our escort team of Angels can be seen shepherding the truck around dead man's curve just outside of town.  My task was to get across the table with the fuel.

Rival news agencies were in the air covering the fate of the "Motherload."

Yeah, I got to yell that air horn sound effect each time I moved the big beast.


Three teams of bandit outlaw car gangs came against the Motherload and we lost the truck just a mile outside of town to a huge fireball of flame.  

Here we can see the famed Tall Boy hummer getting ready to catch some serious air.  Tall Boy crewed by Ken VP currently holds the club record for "time aloft" at 10.5.

One of Jon H's buggys head butted my buggy and killed my driver outright.  He got thrown from the roll cage and was just a sack of bones when he hit the desert gravel.

Wow!  Can we play again.  I have a feeling that we might see some individual cars get created from this game set of rules.  It was a great night of friends, beer, and laughs.
