Support Squad Assembly

Post by Fireman Tim » Tue Dec 28, 2010 4:11 pm

I spent the day assembling my Northern and Southern Support Squads.

These are a bit more tricky than regular GP squads and do need pinning. Here are some pics of the finished work. Note the locations of the weapons on the backs of the heavies. I hope this helps others in their assembly.

Wouldn't mind getting some closer pics of singles, but, your making me like these models more and more with every photo.

My favourites are northern, CEF/PAK, and Black Talon but I'm leaning towards CEF/PAK most because of fluff and the mix of hover tanks/gears...If I do pick up a few models, can I mix fairly freely the CEF/PAK stuff or is there a lot of restrictions to like only tanks or only gears?

I'll see about posting some close-ups.

I don't have the army list for CEF yet. You can find that one in the Black Talon expansion.

CEF can use everything that is in the PAK list except the Terra Nova gears (Hunter, Jager, Tiger, Sidewinder, Basilisk, Sabertooth, Ferret, BlackMamba), but PAK does not have access to the CEF Battle Frames and HHT-90.

In short, you can pick up the CEF/PAK starter army which will allow you to go both ways.

Tim, can I replace my jager in the support squad with the King Cobra or do I have to replace a spitting cobra?

I'm almost finished painting my spitting cobra's, the striders are painted and I hope to start working on my GP squad soon, just in time for my other Sagittarius, King Cobra and Iguana's to get here. At this rate I should be ready to play by the middle of 2014.

Ryan is probably going to be down at the club Thursday and I think he is going to start putting together his guys ( he may need help). I will probably also be there with my guysto assemble and maybe play.

I can't make it to the club this week as I am working nights. Glad to hear that your gears are coming together.

My stuff is in the final stages of painting. I sure hope Heavy gear makes the online store soon as I have cash burning a hole in my pocket. :lol:


Next Thursday night, I will be at the club and I'll bring my gears.

I have a few things I need to pick up too, after my other stuff gets here, if I could post a pick I would show you how my guys look.
