So taking advantage of being on vacation, I continued to make some progress on the 8th Donegal Guard. The unit is coming along nicely but I'm now not only out of my base paint but also my autumn flocking for the bases. So while I go back to work tomorrow, I'm off Sunday and will be making a quick run up to the Hobby Town for these while I'm there picking up my 40K 8th Edition pre-orders.
First up is 1st Battalion's Company B. This is a pretty nasty company of close in fighters that will do a lot of damage from ambush positions in an urban area. Nothing like hitting an enemy mech with a hatchet then luring it around the corner to get shot by a Hunchback while Firestarters keep enemy infantry from getting involved.
Captain Danae Adams, Hatchetman
1st Lt. Paula Matthews, Hunchback
Xavier Stoughton, Hunchback
Kevin Barrows, Wasp
2nd Lt. Peter Laerniss, Hatchetman
Scott Hayes, Hatchetman
Oliva Webster, Hatchetman
Edmund Fitzhugh, Hatchetman
2nd Lt. Ian Coleman, Shadowhawk
Catelyn Hale, Shadowhawk
Jennifer Squires, Firestarter
Richard Groebben, Firestarter
After that is 2nd Battalion's E Company. This is a bit more of an assault company though the 2nd Lance is quite maneuverable.
Captain Ingrid Lowenstein, Orion
1st Lt. Bryan Mallister, Warhammer
William Gibson, Warhammer
Melissa Rabens, Warhammer
2nd Lt. Ian MacIntyre, Flashman
Clarissa Waterford, Grasshopper
Eric MacAllister, Grasshopper
Wendi Loomis, Grasshopper
2nd Lt. Nicholas Warrington, Battlemaster
Mark Immelman, Archer
Simone Hawthorne, Exterminator
Howard Laitnier, Exterminator
So that has 4 Companies and 1 Battalion command lance completed. I should be able to have the other two companies and the 2nd command lance done by the end of next week hopefully. After that I'll be starting on the militia unit to absorb the loose armor units as well as a small mech contingent that is primarily UrbanMechs and Commandos.
Well, that's all for now and I'll see you all next time.
