The Dieselpunk Story

The sprawling metropolis of New Haven is under the iron control of Viktor Ivanov and The Authority - his own personal army. Coming from old money, Viktor has a complete monopoly of the oil and gas fuel supplies sustaining the island. His rule is absolute.

While the wealthy live privileged lives behind the shinning metal walls of Sun City, the rest of the population live hard lives working in the Central District. Factories and industry stretch as far as the eye can see, and smog hangs thickly in the air. Food and supplies are carefully controlled by Viktor and the poorer workers in Central do not have enough. The death rate is too high and the future is bleak.

The Maslo Group was founded to fill this hope vacuum. They are a brave, highly trained and well organised group of smugglers breaking into Viktor's heavily guarded supply trains and stealing food, medicine and fuel. They distribute this across the Central District to help those most in need. Viktor cannot allow this insolence to stand.

The Authority are rolling out into Central to take down The Maslo Group's headquarters, which have recently been discovered. They are bringing an arsenal of weapons, from a massive combat robot called The Goliath to a hover tank known as The Huntsman, all headed by an elite group of trained soldiers known as The Volk. Our smuggling heroes must defend their supply base and defend the workers of New Haven from this tyranny. Everything is at stake today. Without The Maslo Group, who will people turn to? They must win this fight and prevail!

The hardware for our heroes

Stealing heavily guarded supplies and fighting the might of The Authority requires hardware, and The Maslo Group are an resourceful bunch. With covert manufacturing centres set up across the smoggy Central District, our team have managed to manufacture robots, weapons and light vehicles to help them in their fight!

five diesel troopers - the volk

Every suppressive regime needs its loyal soldiers and Viktor Ivanov - the ruler of New Haven - is no expectation. It is a great honour to be chosen for a position in The Authority and the selection process from the children of the wealthy is tough. Volk soldiers are highly trained from a young age and utterly devoted to Viktor, making them a formidable foe!

The hardware for the authority

Viktor Ivanov comes from old money and his family have ruled over New Haven since its foundation 250 years ago. He has a monopoly on the fuel and material supply lines and needs a mighty force to maintain it, and to control the population. That force needs hardware to intimidate workers and if necessary to crush any rebellions.

the terrain and bases

Finally, you'll also receive some dieselpunk terrain pieces and a scenic base for most miniatures in the collection. The Diesel Silo represents an important fuel supply for the mega city - if our heroes can capture and hold this landmark, it might turn the tide in the fight for freedom.
