Republican Standard Guard WIP
« on: 17 October 2018, 19:49:20 »
I'm about 50% done with my RSG lance. I hope it will eventually be a company with the help of a few from the new box game!
So far it's a Lament (custom loadout to fit the mini better), an Atlas 3 (because why not?! 😁), a Gauntlet, and an old Arctic Fox (because Grampa still got the touch!!)
I'm also working on the Knights custom mech to lead them, but that's proving a more difficult paint job... 😭
The camera makes the Skorne Red I used look orange... grrr...

Looks good, but I am confused . . . the Lament mini is straight up the -2R, with 2 HPPCs and 3 ERML.

Right. But the miniature shows additional weapons on the arms, alongside the PPCs.  I hate when a model has details unaccounted for in the stats. 😁
So my version, tentatively, is armed with 2 x ERPPCs, 2x ER Med Las, 2x Flamers, and 3x ER Sm Las. I haven't finalized it with mech factory yet, but it should work out fine.

Here is my version of the Lament. It's been optimized by the pilot for greater anti-infantry an anti-BA firepower by downgrading the Heavy PPCs and shifting the balance of support lasers. (IT also now has a loadout that matches the sculpt! 😁

Lament brought up to speed with the rest of the lance. Also these pics look much more true to color!!! 😁
