So over the past couple months after 3 attempts at 2 different methods that I can not paint a white paint scheme. So the idea for a ComGuard unit has been scrapped. What I did instead is roll most of what was going to be in that unit over to join the Donegal Guard company that I did previously.
Now I had originally wanted to do the 6th Donegal Guard but I also can't pull off the Celtic knotwork, so we're doing the 8th Donegal instead. I'm going to be doing the unit composition to reflect a more of an urban expertise in warfare, so there is going to be Hatchetmen, Firestarters, Hunchbacks, plenty of close quarters beasts. There is also some ranged heavy hitters to punish enemy units moving into or out of the urban area as well.
So we've got the Battalion Command lance and D Company from the 2nd Battalion. These are the ones that were done a while back.
Major Jessica Epps, Atlas
1st Lt. Tobin Hausmann, Zeus
2nd Lt. Sarah Mayhew, Zeus
2nd Lt. Vincent Conroy, Guillotine
Captain Peter Fitzcairn, Battlemaster
1st Lt. Sonja McTavish, Thunderbolt
Joseph Hyde, Dragon
Stephen St. Jaimes, Dragon
2nd Lt. Paul Kearns, Griffin
Karen Tierny, Cicada
James Bruce, Cidada
Sean Ceirdwyn, Commando
2nd Lt. Andrew Fisher, Jaegermech
Emily Bancroft, Trebuchet
Reginald Beckett, Trebuchet
Paul O'Sullivan, Blackjack
Now I've got another company, A Company of the 1st Battalion, complete as well.
Captain Geoffrey Harroldson, Archer
1st Lt. Sarah Dorian, Quickdraw
Sinclair Halstead, Quickdraw
Clarissa Allenby, Dervish
2nd Lt. Colleen Tavish, Crusader
Rachael O'Connelly, Catapult
Miroki Aioba, Catapult
Michael Dunn, Trebuchet
2nd Lt. Lloyd Paulson, Crusader
Karen Owens, Catapult
Phillip Tannerman, Catapult
David Veerland, Trebuchet
I've got 3 more companies based coated in my main color for the unit, but there is another company and a battalion command lance that are on the waiting block due to running out of paint. I'll be picking some up on Sunday when I run up to Johnson City to pick up my 8th Edition pre-order. This unit is getting fall basing, and I think it goes well with the blue gray color of the mechs. The vehicle portion of the former ComStar unit will be going into a militia unit to be assigned as support to the 8th Donegal Guard.
So that's what we have for now and I'll see you all next time.
