1st AnyPlanet Force
« on: 12 August 2020, 10:03:04 »
in an effort to get my conventional forces painted, i've organized them into companies. this group will serve as generic 3025-3050 (or later) OpFor and can be found on the IS General list for the late succession wars. all units will sport similar camo schemes so they can be mixed an matched as needed (i generally don't optimize from the outset anyway as getting paint on the minis is the primary goal).

1st AnyPlanet Armored Guards
Stationed on: The planet you're attacking
Strength: One Regiment
Experience: Probably Trained
Loyalty: Loyal enough to be given guns
Commander: LtCol Perry McCann
McCann graduated in the top third of his class at the nearest conventional warfare academy. He has served Your Hated Enemy / Contract Target as an officer since 3002, with experience commanding both infantry and armored forces. He has a tenuous relationship with That BattleMech Unit's commander.

Here's the company i did a few years ago as a concept paint. never got back to it until now.

nice setup
"For the Angel of Death spread his wings on the blast, And breathed in the face of the foe as he passed:And the eyes of the sleepers waxed deadly and chill, And their hearts but once heaved, and for ever grew still!"

Like the intro! They will provide a worthwhile opposition to $InsertNameHere Mercenary Company in what will become known as the legendary Battle of WhereAreWeNow.
"That's Lieutenant Faceplant to you, Corporal!"

Things that I have learnt through clicking too fast on 'Move Done' on MegaMek: Double-check the CF of the building before jumping onto it, check artillery arrival times before standing in the neighbouring hex, and don't run across your own minefield.

"Hmm, I wonder if I can turn this into a MM map."
