Looking through my growing mountain of miss matched miniatures, I decided to start with what I got, and build from there. That led to the small force you see below, and the idea grew to expand it thematically to form a Penal Legion army. Now I need to find some suitable unarmoured, low-tech troops to form the great massed regiments of the army. I am leaning towards grabbing some french foreign legion from Blue Moon, and converting them to fit. Either that, or some Forged in Battle french troops, but I suspect the FiB minis are very small, even for 15mm. ( Can anyone help confirm exactly how tall they are?)
I am building the army towards playing games of Fireteam Andromeda, which I am looking much forward to the release of. Torben demoed me a version of the rules this summer, and it looks to be an exicting game to get into.
|The elite troops of the army consists of a variety of enforcer type characters.|
|"The wardens" will add some heavy support to the force. After the prototype is done, I plan to build two units of 3 with various arms. Should be good support units for medium sized games.|
|40K pistols make great 15mm heavy weapons..|
