WHOO! WHOO! All Aboard!

ottos autos logobulletcrs211  Grand Republic Lines, Engine #157 has just arrived in station!

Locomotive #2- #TE02, Shown in Grand Republic Lines livery, one of three color schemes. GW figure shown for scale, not included.

bulletcrs211  Our previous Ottos’ Autos locomotive had more of a “passenger train” feel to it, but this bad girl is a workhorse. Its a pretty complicated kit, but if built in sub-assemblies, shouldn’t be too tough. She comes in three different branch line color schemes, and two condition choices. This TABLETOP HERO kit features fully position-able trucks just like all of our rail stock. And never fear, Passenger Cars and the ‘Rail Track Pack’ are on their way.

Dragons Teeth!- #DT01 RAAAWR!

bulletcrs211  Our 48th kit is more crap to get in the way! Dragons Teeth! This simple kit is a single page, providing you with 8 different “teeth”. We mounted ours on some card-stock bases (made from a cereal box), to make them easier to handle and stay in place on the table. Combine them with the Hedgehogs and Concrete/Steel Barricades to really put a crimp in your opponents advance, or create some nasty ‘fields of fire‘.

The Engine is Here! The Engine is Here!

ottos autos logobulletcrs211  Engine 358 of the BC&D Railroad has just arrived at the station! And she’s pretty sweet!

loco1-4

Locomotive #1 -#TE01. GW figure shown for scale purposes only. Not included.

bulletcrs211  This Otto’s Autos kit was a tough one, but well worth it. It was kind of a “Proof of Concept” kit to begin with, started well before any of the other rolling stock. It went through a bunch of changes and redo’s before it got to this point. And as such, this kit comes in just one color scheme, (the BC&D RR), and one condition. This TABLETOP HERO kit features fully position-able trucks just like all of our rail stock. A second kit is in development that will feature multiple liveries, and condition choices. And never fear, Passenger Cars and the ‘Rail Track Pack’ are on their way.

loco1-9

Engine 358 of the BC&D RR being inspected by the Emperors finest. GW figure shown for scale purposes only. Not included.

bulletcrs211  Now we know there’s gonna be at least one yahoo out there, that’s going to write to tell us, ” that’s not an accurate model of a type 2 blah- XJ blah- 9 blah engine”. And they would be right. This is not a “replica” of a specific engine or type of engine, it is an amalgamation, meant to “represent” a modern locomotive on the gaming table, a job it does quite well. So tell Casey Jones to hook up! We got freight t’ haul!

bulletcrs211  Stay tuned for more exciting  Otto’s Autos kits! And if you have any ideas for future releases, or don’t see what you need, drop us a line, we really DO listen. Check back often! You just never know, what you’re looking for, may already be “in the pipe”!

3 MORE ‘Ottos’ Autos’ kits released!

logo11ottos autos logo

bulletcrs211  Tho’ we’ve been gone for a while, we haven’t been idle! Coming hot on the heals of TABLETOP HERO’s  first 3 releases in the new “Ottos’ Autos” line, come 3 more! This time we’re ridin’ the rails with 3 new 1/48th scale railroad cars. These kits are not detailed on the bottom, unlike our other ground based vehicles,  (cuz’ we didn’t think they needed to be).

DSCN0075

40′ Boxcar – #BC01. Shown w/ sheets from our upcoming ‘Rail Track Pack’ (not included). GW figure shown for scale purposes only.

bulletcrs211  First up is an old  40′ boxcar. (Purdy ain’t she?) This old girl is dressed in the classic boxcar red, with separate position-able trucks, and livery for 2 different rail lines. There’s also some palletized freight included to help flesh out your rail-yard. 2 more modern boxcars are in the development stage, so stay tuned.

DSCN0099

40′ Flatcar – #FC01. Shown w/ sheets from our upcoming ‘Rail Track Pack’ (not included). GW figure shown for scale purposes only.

bulletcrs211  Next up is a heavy haulin’ flatcar. This kit comes in 2 different types, also with separate position-able trucks. The kit is super easy to build, but very useful on the gaming table.

 

DSCN0111

40′ Tanker – #TC01. Shown w/ sheets from our upcoming ‘Rail Track Pack’ (not included). GW figure shown for scale purposes only.

bulletcrs211  And lastly, a Tanker, again with separate position-able trucks. This advanced kit comes with livery for 3 different companies, so basically you get 3 kits for the price of one!

bulletcrs211  I know what you’re thinking. “Hey guys, what good are railroad cars, if there’s no track to run ’em on, and nothing to pull them with?”  That’s exactly what we thought too! So never fear Grasshopper, TABLETOP HERO is putting together a “Rail Track Pack”, (some of which you can see above), with all the curves, straight track and crossings you could possibly need, (just needs a few more tweaks and we’re there). If that weren’t enough, we’re building the prototype of a modern diesel engine even as we speak, so keep checking back.
Happy Gaming! -Bolt-
