A mercenary unit devoted to hunting down bandits!

Craig Reed showed us last month a pirate band with no morals--now he shows us the paladins out to hunt them down.

I like this unit, some cool characters and a neat back story.

One thing i have been noticing with these unit digests, ship profiles, etc. is that the editing is a little rough, maybe something to keep in mind for the future.

Due to a mistake on my part, the Unit Digest is missing a subunit entry. Without further ado, here it is:

Under Subunits:

Quote
Bayington's Black Sheep
Major Carlton Bayington                  
2 Squadrons / Veteran / Questionable
Icon:  Fighter


'Black sheep' best describes Carlton Bayington and his people. The unit has more disciplinary problems then the rest of the Lancers combined, and the only reason that Colonel Langston puts up with them is that when they are flying, they are a solid force. Bayington is working to change the Black Sheep's reputation, but it will take time.

Made up of mostly heavier fighters, the Black Sheep flies cover when needed.  Otherwise, they are sent on seek and destroy mission over the battlefield. The Black Sheep's Second Squadron, the Wild Bunch, are masters of ground attack missions.

and under Unit abilities:

Quote
Bayington's Black Sheep

First Squadron has the Brawlers ability, while Second Squadron has the Ground Attack Specialists special ability (p. 193, TO)

 ;D

I expect that the Black Sheep mostly fly Corsairs. ;)
To the utmost!

Maybe 2 reinforced squadrons with 14 fighters.
Nice Unit.

Thank you for Langston's Lancers, Craig. :)

Any chance the Black Sheep will be edited into the PDF and the Unit Digest re-released?  ;D

I don't think so -- the digest are based on a template and the I didn't take that into account when I wrote it up.... ;)
