149th Dark Horse Armored Cav
« on: 01 October 2022, 21:55:29 »
Photo Dump. 149th Armored Cav got some love this last month with the addition of three new lances of Mechs and a Flight squadron of VTOLS. I've had some of these minis for years - they are all Iron Wind metals.

I think I have most of the Regimental Combat Brigade painted up at this point, with the 151st Heavy Armor Battalion [mostly Manticore and Goblin II IFV's with some Bulldogs] and 37th Mechanized Infantry Battalion [with four Condor Heavy Hover Tank [upgrade], Maxim Troop Transports, Warrior and Ripper VTOLS with about 30 stands of TAG, SRM and laser infantry]

During the Third Succession War, the 8th Recon Detachment and 50th Heavy Armor Battalion left the Eridani Lighthorse and formed the 149th dark Horse Armored Cavalry regiment. That's all the fluff I've got, and I'm sticking to it.

Anyway - here's the glamor shots:

The XO's ride out of HHT 149th.


A Spotter and Gunner from the HHT 149th.


A Marauder variant from the HHT Battle Lance.


Another Cat-C4 out of the Stryker Lance, HHT.




An ancient Griffin from the Stryker Lance HHT.


A Super Griffin for the Stryker Lance, HHT.


Okay, enough data transmissions for the evening.

Next time, fellow pilots!

Those look great
Walking the fine line between sarcasm and being a smart-ass

500 is the number of Warships just passed the 567

Great job!  Good work keeping the painted on numbers so straight, looks just like a stencil a tech would use.

Thanks! I find that using the background color as an 'eraser' to clean everything up and make it look straighter works great.

Re: 149th Dark Horse Armored Cav - 7th Recon assets:

More pics of the 149th. They were SLDF 3rd regiment [Eridani Light Horse], but after the 3rd Succession Wars, these units formed the backbone of a Merc Regiment flagged as the 149th ACR.
+7th Reconnaissance Detachment [Danger Close!] This unit was part of the original 50th Heavy Cav recon assets on Radalah which earned the name Dark Horse Cav against the Proserpina Hussars.

Very nice. Remind me of the covers of the classic Succession Wars era sourcebooks in the 80s. In a cool way. 👍
