Eridani Light Horse 21st Striker Regiment

So I'll go ahead and warn now, this is going to be a bit long of a post.  I want to get my entire 21st Striker Regiment as it stands right now all in one post to reference to as well as to show it off a bit.

As I've said before, Murl had gifted me with 16 pages of Eridani Light Horse material from an early FASA publication.  This stuff includes a complete TOE for the entire force, a breakdown of the monthly expenses for each unit including pay, monthly supply and maintenance costs, overhead, etc.  All the details you'd need to really run the unit.  Plus this material contained the normal background fluff, rank markings, uniforms, etc, and the part I loved best, a complete roster list.  It's got every lance and platoon listed out with pilot or squad leader name, level of experience (green, veteran, elite, etc.), and what equipment.  I also acquired some decals from Fighting Pirannha Graphics that Archon Vortil has been assisting me with as I can't do decals for crap.
The TOE for the entire Eridani Light Horse
Cost and Upkeep Breakdown
Fighting Pirannha Decals, nice quality and reasonable prices
Now then, while I've used the TOE, I haven't stuck to it mech by mech but rather by weight class and role for the most part.  I also kept the names of the major officers like Regimental, Battalion, and Company commanders, but names beyond that have been changed (cause FASA was bad at naming the 3rd guy in the 5th lance, etc).

-   = Fully Painted
o  = Model Owned

So, first up is the 21st Striker Regiment Command Company which is missing two tanks and a mech that are part of the artillery lance to protect the Long Toms.  I've got a pair of Demolishers on order to fill in part of that space.  I'm still deciding on the mech.  TOE has a Rifleman in the slot, but I haven't decided yet.

Next up is the 5th Striker Lance which was just recently started.  I've got a Seydlitz Fighter coming to pair with the lone Dagger to finish the one lance.  I'm still needing 4 more Aerospace Fighters to finish the 25th Heavy Assault Company.  That company is also light in weight class compared to the TOE if/when I start the 3rd Striker Battalion, I will probably slide some of the lighters over into the new unit to put in some heavier mechs to get closer to what's in the TOE.

The last unit of the Regiment is the 1st Armored Infantry Battalion.  This unit needs a base of halftrack infantry still (I only have one left and need two for the base), get the motorized engineers on a base, and then 3 Mechs for the Command Lance and 4 Mechs for the AA Lance.  All 7 of these mechs will be here when Robotech finally ships.  The engineer platoon is just infantry in the original TOE but having some engineers in a unit like this only makes sense so I made the adjustment.  The two extra tanks at the front of the picture are 40K Epic Baneblades that I'm using as Gurteltier Main Battle Tanks.  They'll take the place of the Rommel/Pattons in post 3080 year games.  The two command track vehicles are also additions on my part because 1. they make sense and 2. they were fun to convert.

And that's where my force stands right now.  Still a lot of work to do but I'm pretty pleased with how it's coming along over the past 8 or 9 months.  I'm hoping to have all that is currently here finished and units completed by the end of the year and then I'll start thinking about the last Striker Battalion after that.  Hope you all enjoyed the breakdown and such as much as I've enjoyed working on them all.

  1. That looks like quite an epic force at this point!
