Very little painting was done by me this week. I had plenty of time to paint yesterday, just didn't feel like it. Instead I sprawled out on the recliner and fell asleep while watching the St. Louis Rams look as bad in their 2012 preseason as they have in the past several regular seasons.
Anyways, while I have no idea what the new starter minis will look like, they're going to be a hellova lot better than these guys' poses. Figuring that they wouldn't fit in too well, I redid their knee pad company markings, and dumped them into the 6th reserve company, and instead the starter box minis will get the 3rd. battle company markings.
The gentlemen of the road was in town and my GF & I spent the afternoon and night wandering around, watching shows, and in general enjoying ourselves. It was a really good time! The weather was perfect and the headline act, the Mumford & Sons, put on a hellova good show!
Basically its a 60 ton, mud slow, card board box (the upgraded LBX version is armored in plywood) with 5 fixed forward AC-2s. AC-2s are long ranged but otherwise crummy weapons. In very specific scenarios (i.e. when parked next to a lance of Alacorn heavy tanks) Its quite exceptional at exploiting the damage the heavier tanks inflict. However I don't have those, so its just kinda there for my amusement. The AC-2 Carrier has only 2 things going for it. Incredible long range, allowing it to hide in a corner and hope to not annoy my opponent enough to draw any fire, and ammo. This thing has a stupid amount of ammo! I could fire all 5 guns, for all 20 turns, and still have 80 rounds left over, WTF? Anyways, I converted a Hi-Drone Scout carrier (which is another useless 60-ton card board box) for this model.
