So after I finished the basing of the dozen or so mechs that needed it, I turned my attention to the 1st Armored Infantry Battalion portion of the regiment. This battalion consists of an armored company, two infantry companies, and an artillery company. The armored company consists of a command lance (Von Luckners and Rommel/Pattons and missing one vehicle), a striker lance (Ontos and Hetzers), and a Recon Lance (a lone Saladin at the moment).
|Hetzer (one minus the gun to represent the SRM variant)|
|Goblin Infantry Fighting Vehicles|
|Engineering vehicle and Motorized Infantry|
|LRM Carriers in Regimental Artillery Lance|
The next thing on the list for this project is more Saladins and either some Saracens or Pegasus to round out the hover recon lance. And of course I've got a lot more micro armor trucks to paint and base for the infantry components. Which still leaves finishing the artillery forces and there is an aerospace lance in the mech battalion that I haven't addressed either. So still plenty to do and a few things I'm figuring out still, though I'm very pleased with the progress of the last couple days. The plan right now is to spend a good hunk of Sunday cranking out bases and then after that begin painting trucks of motorized infantry to go on them. (For the record, I really don't like painting those tiny things.) Other future projects include a couple command/HQ vehicles and some more engineering vehicles. I think for the engineering stuff that I'll convert one of Bravo Company's platoons from motorized infantry into engineers, not a big tweak but gives a valuable asset without expanding the force organization chart beyond the established.
That's all for now and I'll see you all later.
