Looks like he is here men... lets get over to the reception zone .



Major Morgan Commander of the remnants of the 2nd Bn Munrovian Volunteers gathers up key commanders to meet Roger the Antipodean Travelling VAM.

Travelling in convey with an escort , as reports of Dragonian activity near the secret base have been detected by outposts.



"What do we know about him Sir", asks Para commander Kurt Danger.


"well as far as we are able to ascertain from comms via UAMHQ & Ammo portals, he is like many of us - a rebuild after some time in the loft. Originally deployed to Australia for his first tour of duty. He has been travelling back to his original base of issue , the UK, gathering intelligence from other VAM HQ's"

Meanwhile ....Four key Munrovian VAM have been despatched to collect Roger in his Transportation casket.


"Come on Dreadnought... put your back into it - or I'll get Cpl Notright on to you " ! encourages No1 , Gunners CH11 commander.



" Be a bloomin site easier if Black helped a bit " grumbles Dreadnought..
With a final shove Rogers casket is loaded .


Secure,  the escort party move to the reception zone.



The two patrols meet


"Come on you men , lets get Roger out a breathing some fresh Cheshire air !" barks Para Commander Danger.


Keep the MT Zone secure guys !


A little later in the "Unboxing area" .....

" Dreadnought !! what the blooming heck do you think you are doing ! I dispare of you !" Cries No1 .



"Err I thought these Aussies liked big knives ?? "



"You plonker !" says Black - "you could slice his elastics with that thing !!"


"Sorry No1 - I wasn't thinking ..".



" Well Blonde, I'm looking forward to seeing Roger out on patrol with us "
"Yes sir Caption Kobina and I will get on a vist around Gunner HQ , then out on on a tour of some of the environs "
Kobina: "yes then we can utilise some of his combat skills to train up some of the troops - that will be a great morale boost !!"



After the final wrapping has come off the transportation casket....

WTF ! ??.



Can Rogers adventures be over ???-



Tune in  for the next instalment ...

US?? Don't you even go there trying to blame us! Roger was fine, albeit a bit hot and flustered, when we last saw him!!

PostSubject: Roger arrives at Gunner HQ.... part 2    Sat Jun 16, 2018 12:05 pm

What has happened to Roger ??

This is where we left the story ... Gunner VAM's gasped in horror at the fate of Roger..Had the evil Volgan's managed to infect the Transportation Life support system - ala Salisbury??

had the shock of the Phicen babe's at SKJ' s been too much for Rogers aging ticker ?

Had Royal Mail's handling cause a catastrophic systems failure ?

Was it the last pint of Atomic Ale with the CH 5 at BAM HQ ?

Would we be sending back to James aka Blues and Royals a pile of bones and few  Action Man Mementoes?



Major Morgan on hearing the commotion dashes over


"Right Men. lets get a grip of this situation- Blonde lets get Rogers remains out and look for clues"

The top of the casket is prised off and Blonde pulls out the sad remains of Roger...


Blonde :"The degradation has been dramatic  Sir..."



...But wait this doesn't look like  Palitoy  DNA !!

Black: "Over here guys ! there looks like a false floor to the casket !"

Major Morgan: "Well don't just gawp men.. lets find out what is in there!"

Black & Dreadnought pull back the false  floor and Roger gasps pulling himself out !!


Roger is alive !!! ( to the tune of Flash Gordon)



Roger " Strewth Mate - Don't stab me !"
Black " "Oh sorry Rog, I forgot I still had my divers knife .. so glad you are alive...

What happened ??

Was this a prank from Hank ? or was it a part of the Volgan/Dragonian  plan to dominate the VAM world ?

Tune in next time for the next instalment . Action Man

Oh, wow! This is hilarious! And amazingly detailed! What a welcome for Rog!

Now I'm feeling I need a "do-over" for hosting Modern Action Man here in Utah! His tour here wasn't up to snuff compared to what you guys offer!

So we left Roger climbing out of the false bottom casket.. fearing the worst..

Was he about to have to switch on his best Krav- Vam moves ?



Luckily it was Just Black forgetting he was still clutching his trusty DSD knife Surprised

Soon after Roger start to get dressed ...



" Strewth, I thought I might be a gonner there..."

Black: "So sorry Roger .. you must have thought us really unfriendly !"

Lt Kobina" So Agent Roger , how did you end up naked under a false bottom with a novelty Skeleton dressed in your Combats ??"



Roger "Well the last thing I recall was one of The Phicen Babe Guards at SKJ HQ -er.. hmm.... giving my butt a squeeze , waving good bye and the next thing I see is Black waving his rather large knife !"

Major Morgan" Ha ha - I reckon that all Hanks doing - he is a "scamp" !!

Meanwhile Blonde and Dreadnought take a close look at the Skeleton.



Blonde: -It never had me fooled.. not for one second!"
Dreadnought" Yeah right .. you were weeping like a girl who had the intruder turn up for a blind date !"



Black: "no hard feelings Roger.. welcome to Gunner HQ , home of the Munrovians..."
Roger: "None taken mate, it was a fair dinkum wheeze by Hank tho'!"



MM: Excellent subterfuge Kobina, we must get the men tuning in to SKJ HQ broadcasts more often."

LK: "If you ask me sir, I'm sure Commander Sabre won't have authorised that mission ! "



The CH 11  advanced welcome team, Introduce themselves.

No1: "Welcome Roger , I'm No1 -Gunners first VAM , You have met Black. He joined us last. This is Blonde and Dreadnought"

Roger: "Great to meet you fella's - I'm looking forward to meeting some of the others "



Dreadnought: " Right Roger, lets get you to the Command centre"

With that the team make their way toward the patrol.





Roger:" ...well then all I heard was the snap of a rubber glove...she was good looking but blimey those sheilas were ...er scary !"
Dreadnought:"Right lets grab a beer an hear more about that mate .. not a sniff of a Barbie or even a Sindy around these parts for at least 40 years !!...Lovely flock by the way..."



MM: "Black- we need you to keep a close eye on Roger.. you know the trackers are picking up Dragonian activity in sector 3 and 7 "



Roger: "Hey James . Just reporting in. Arrived safe and sound at Gunners.. Just .. will tell you all about it when I get back ..Looking forward to some more adventures before heading off to Wales . Over and out "

Great update Steve!  cheers

Hank's a little hurt he's getting the blame again and although he'd never admit to anything of course, he'd just comment 'Mess with the best get punk'd like the rest!' lol!

The adventure continues! Entertaining dialog and well-posed group shots. I'm impressed by how you get so many figs to stand up all at once.

Blonde : "You must be thirsty Rog.. have some of this. Its no Atomic ale, but it will give you a welcome buzz !"



Roger."Thanks mate , that is most welcome.. I'm not sure what was used to put me under but I sure have a thirst. Where are we exactly?"

PostSubject: Rogers tour continues    Sat Jun 30, 2018 11:56 am

Well after the whistle stop tour of Northwich and its environs.. Roger continues to explore Gunner. HQ



Captain Scarlet is Rogers host to the Reception and processing centre..



This is where most of the new arrivals are fixed up except, in the coldest winter months, when Gunner gets special permission to move into the Kitchen.



Rog: "So whats going on here then?"


We are having a hot debate about hand replacement.

Yeah - as a zodiac Tommy Gunn I want some grippers like the VAM boys.



Rog: "Best thing I ever got was these grippers ... oh and the reflock !"



I Know.. I could do with one - my barnet was in such a bad state Gunners taken me back to Paint head ! ..I quite like it .."

Roger spots something.



Rog: whats that up there ?



CS : LOL - its what we call Gunners Folly. Its a Airfix 1/32nd scale Strongpoint - Gunner reckons he can make us one in 1/6th scale>
Rog; "Wow .. that will be great .."
CS : well its been 18 months in the planning .. don't count your chickens -LOL.



Action Commander takes over the tour and heads over to the MT section.

AC : This area could do with a bit more organising.. you have met these guys before .. they are Quick Reaction Force duty..."



AC : This is where most of the MT section kit is garaged.. there is still some more in the loft Mrs G doesn't know much about. !!
Rog takes a closer look.



Rog: "Wow ! Dogs too !- Not sure about the Hummer though .. a bit non tactical..."



Rog: Looks like the spares box .. to think I was close to that state once .. thank goodness for Blues & Royals  and his ingenuity.."



Rog gets chatting to Red one of the QRF.
" So what are these like - we had Jeeps but nothing quite like this ."
Red: -She handles really well .. its MAM kit , but some of the good stuff!"



Rog; It would be great to have  a spin in one o f these.. I was trained in Outback off road conditions as part of my last assignment.
AC: Sure Rog , I'll put a request is and see what we can do..



With that Rog waves good bye to Red and the QRF  and heads off for his next adventure ... a bit of Camping ...
