Oh hey a chimera. Back in my highschool days at games club most of the guard players used the shooty army in the corner tactic. Not much movement.

After the Italian colonial army, I've been modeling some of their enemies lately, namely the 9th Australian Division.
I choose this particular unit because it used a lot of different equipment I already have in other armies:
- French R-35 tank captured form Vichy troops in Lebanon.
- Italian M11 & M13 tank captured at Tobruk.
- Italian 47mm AT & 20mm AA guns.
- American M3 Stuart.

Infantry company (w/ MGs, ATR & light mortar)

(I've got another one like that)

40mm Bofors AA gun:

The cavalry/recon element: Bren Carriers!
Image
(I love those little devils)

The "heavy duty": Vickers Light Tank.

Jeep:

2-pdr AT gun (center), Italian captured 47mm AT gun (left) & 20mm AA gun (right):

I've been trying to find a 15mm kangaroo miniature to recreate the division's mascott, as seen here, but to no avail ... :(

Painting mini's are hard, fucked up some of the base coats, looks like I might have to start from scratch.

Was thinking about make some sort of flocked roll able mat with flock and grit on it for easy transportation. Also for simplicity so I could just place hill shaped foam hills and throw the mat over and any terrain and scenery bits on top. Something for ease of transportation and cheap.

After my Indochina War, colonial Italians & Western Desert's 9th Australian Division, I am now starting a new project, still about an unsung army or unit: WW2 Cossacks! :)

My first stands of WW2 dismounted Cossacks:

I'm planning to build a battlegroup to represent units from one of the two Cavalry-Mechanized Group from Operation Bagration in 1944.

Btw, do someone have detailed TO&E about a Cossack company, even battalion, up to the squad's armament?

I have been a busy bee.

My Snow Raven Gamma Galaxy is coming along quite nicely.
Spoiler : Snow Ravens :
Image
This is my first ever attempt at using a wash. I clearly went overboard.

I've got a bit more experience now.
Image

Image

Some classic firepower. Granted, the Warhawk has way more heatsinks than it needs fixed in the design.
Image

An original sculpt of the Timber Wolf.
Image

Some more Summoner classic goodness.
Image

A Mad Dog Mk.III, a design from the Dark Ages WizKids game, which got the design from MechWarrior 4.
Image

A 3D-printed mech based on the Kit Fox from MWO.
Image

Of course, there's also what the Snow Ravens are most famous for; their aerospace.
Image

Image

Not shown is the Visigoth, which I've forgotten to take a picture of.

I'm currently working on a Stormcrow and Incubus (original sculpt) for my Snow Raven force.

I've been putting a lot of effort into my little Society force, though.
Spoiler : Society :
The plucky little Cephalus.
Image

The Septicema, a nasty bugger of a medium mech.
Image

The Osteon, designed to be bloody hard to kill.
Image

The Donar VTOL.
Image

The Boggart protomech. Six of these guys are a nightmare to deal with. It's also the first protomech I painted, and I have three very similar to this one.
Image

Finally, the Batu, the one fighter I have for the Society (for now).
Image


There's a few more mechs I didn't picture here, plus my Ghost Bear Omega Galaxy force, but that can wait for another time.

So, I've got a problem.

There's a unit in BattleTech called the Vali. It's a super-useful Arrow IV artillery platform.
Image
The problem is there's no miniature for it (not popular enough, I guess). So I'm trying to find some other 1/285 or 1/300 scale miniature I can use as a stand-in. It has to look as close as possible, of course. So far, something like a SKOT or BTR-80 from Scotia are the best I can find, but they have turrets that kind of get in the way. Does anyone know of any other miniatures that might work?

Right now, this is the best I've found.

If you can find some company doing them at your scale, what about South African Ratel or Buffel?

Buffel?
Image
I'm not seeing the connection.

Also, which Ratel? They're all 4 or 6-wheeled vehicles as well, which doesn't match aesthetically quite as well to the Vali. The Ratel 60 seems the closest match, but it's still got a turret on top. :/
