Whats coming next I ask?
Im thinking for these to be of use as an army, Im going to need a full support of HQ and heavy weapons, so that is in fact what i am doing. The HQ team will consist of additional commanders, a medic and sniper team. Probably 5 figures.
The heavy weapons will be a little bit different. I will have a 2 or 3 man crew and then a choice of support weapons. They can include a rail gun ATG, AA defense and an Anti Infantry Weapon. Without giving to much away, each weapon will be a stand off weapon and the crew will fire using a remote controller. Id thought it unlikely in the age we are discussing that weapons would still be crewed openly. Two crew will be operators and some will have third crew member as a loader. The loader will be a small heavy lift loader, possibly a exoskeltan suited character who does the heavy lifting and can cover teh distance to reload quickly.
Another weapon will be the mortar. Now I'm in two minds as to what future war mortars will be like and Ive been thinking a multi function launch tube device or aerial device. As it is , Im thinking a miniature multi tube device, like a MRLS. This will be sled driven (hover, wheeled, grav) and will contain multiple tubes for mixed ordanance. The heavy loader will be perfect for loading these. Im open to suggestions!
Another work in the pipeline are Heavy infatry troopers. They will be exoskelatan troopers with heavy calibre weaponary and jump assisted devices for jumps and landings. They will also support full heavy armour and will be in the style of the normal infantry. Brings these troops from milita to a Russian/Russian sponsored forces.
Finally, Im doing some none full helmeted versions of the current infantry range. The may be used for the same era or even modern. They will look very much like russian forces in Chechnya.(spelt?)
Your first figs look very cool! I look forward to seeing these new ones as well.ReplyDelete
Best of luck!
I would love some figures with heavy automatic pistols, either in a two handed grip or one in each hand!ReplyDelete
It is a very good idea to have an HQ and Heavy Weapons squad. I´m going to use the excellent "Gruntz 15mm" rulebook, and there are a lot of ideas in it about weapons, etc.ReplyDelete
Have you plans for vehicles and aircrafts crews? Mounted and dismounted...
