|Crusty Walker on 30mm base|
All are from GZG, and are excellent sculpts. Some of the edges are a little soft, but for alien crustaceans, it's OK with me.
|Crusty Power Armor troops on 20mm bases|
These all took quite a lot of effort due to the mechanical detail. I have actually got another 3 suits almost finished (weapons and bases to go) but they are identical poses, so I thought I'd throw out a post with these 3 done.
I'm working on my Kallistra Hexon terrain boards to have a little more space to get troops on the board. For what? For FUBAR! I played 3 games over the weekend and I think it's a great system for playing Platoon Forward (In space) as it's light and points-free.
Since my boards are quite small, I have adapted the weapon ranges and firepower values to suit. In my variant, each weapon type has varying FP depending on range. It worked out very well in my test games, as the rules are so simple to start with. With this system, a combat shotgun behaves differently to an assault rifle for example, which I like.
The (extremely flexible) Platoon Forward scenario generator includes things like squad support weapons and AT guns.. Something I lack in general. I am going to need to order some big guns (probably from GZH again) in due course, but I think I'll start the campaign without them or see what I can convert in the meantime.
My next step will be to generate my platoon, which should be fun! I'm going to use my 5150 definition of a platoon here... 3 fireteams of 4 men each plus a "Platoon" commander. Can't wait.
Thanks for looking!
