Battletech, more Eridani Light Horse

Got a few more pieces done for future Battletech Alpha Strike games, namely mercenaries under the banner of the Eridani Light Horse.
An Atlas in the foreground and a Hunchback behind it.

Another view of the Hunchback.

2 Javelins I think, bought them second hand so not completely sure.

28mm Mongrel Miniatures 9th Rota Russians

Finally completed a lonnnnng project, the 9th Rota miniatures set from Mongrel Miniatures. The miniatures are based off of the movie by the same name covering a Soviet Airborne platoon in Afghanistan during the Russian occupation.  The miniatures were a lot of fun to paint, lots of character.



Fire team

Another view. Notice the mix of equipment.

An argument with some locals, also from Mongrel Miniatures.

Suppressing fire.

And a mop up.

Command and a BMP. Notice the tanker reading the map, another nice character model from MM.

Close up.

Moving out.

Scanning for the air transport.

Two of my favorite civilians, especially the "picker" 😂
