Army showcase: First Aragon Borderers


Some time ago I photographed most of my Battletech collection. Today's update brings you my Federated Commonwealth regiment of the First Aragon Borderers. In the Sourcebook Federated Suns they are described as a regular Battlemech regiment with an added battalion of armoured fighting vehicles rather then a full Regimental Combat Team, therefore I have added a fair amount of tanks and stuff.
The colour scheme came about as a combination of the Aragon's own blue scheme combined with the blue-line scheme from the computer game Mechwarrior 4 vengeance. I like it a LOT! This probably is my nicest looking CBT army to date, at least in my humble opinion. I like playing my Jade Falcons better still...

The whole army arrayed on parade:

Heavy and Assault lances plus the armoured cars, VTOL and hover-crafts:

Light or recon lance:

The armoured support:

As you can see the company is several 'Mechs short and these will be added when available. There are some very nice Unseen chassis in this lot and I am really happy with how they turned out!

French Cuirassiers


In between other projects I am still building my Napoleonic wargames armies. Today's update brings you the second regiment of French Napoleonic Cuirassiers I've finished. The first regiment has purplish regimental facings this latter has yellow ones.

The figures, of course, are Zvezda's and great mini's they are! I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.

Cheers Sander
