Dropzone: Breaching Drill

The lack of light dropships for Resistance really limits the mobility of infantry. If an objective is found, I don’t really want to dust off with a whole Lifthawk. With a drill deployed midfield, the Jackson APC can drop off the infantry underground.

I painted the body a bright off-white. The black and brown oil wash I’ve been using on resistance really dirtied it up nicely. I used the same paints I got for Team Yankee tank tracks on the side tracks of the drill. I think I might need to go back and do the same for other Resistance tracks.

Dropzone: Freeriders

They may have gotten nerfed, but I’m not about to let that get in the way of some vroom vrooms.

Putting the models on each base line abreast makes them feel slow. I know it’s not original, but the arrow formation really helps them look like they’re in motion.

Like I did for the infantry, pairs of bases got matching color treatment. That way, I can play two squads on the table and keep them distinguishable.

I probably put it a little too high in my priority paint queue, though. It’s takes a Heavy slot, which means I can’t take both it and the Hannibals in a Skirmish level game. Oops.

Putting these guys on a transport meant magnetizing the main gun. It’s a metal part, which for some reason is hard to get magnets in straight. It’s not as neat as I’d like, but beauty requires sacrifices.
