I'm not saying anything even halfway official or even hinting at anything but I finally went down in the basement to my work table after not doing that for months and months ...and I found some stuff I glued up.. A Raptor with some GGC's sticking out of it's DFM's.. A Hawk 5 with the long guns from a Falcon on it's arms.. A Falcon with a T-birds IFM's on it's shoulders.. A Katana with Ronin arms..

 

 

*scratches head*

 

 

Does anyone have any idea what I was going to do with those? :blink:

 

 

melt them down and remold them into quality H-M CAVs :devil:

 

Seriousily, I'd like to see more gunships for the Terrans and they need a IA vehicle. Nothing says lovn' from a Terran like a cowardly attack from behind cover.

Hey everyone,

 

After a bunch of talking about what models he liked best, I have just finished painting a preliminary Terran force for my son, which is about 3.5K, IIRC. I also got these models on closeout, so choice was somewhat limited. I was wondering if some of the Terran veterans on the list (or anyone, really) wouldn't mind recommending what to add to the list from here on in (maybe to make 5K or so). I know that I need many more models with FIST, but I wouldn't mind hearing Terran players' ideas on whether a bunch of cheap FIST models are better than fewer, more powerful Recon models. Here is the list as it stands:

 

Armor section 1 (direct fire section for mopping up, I think)

Falcon

Cougar

Naginata

Naginata

 

Armor Section 2 (Indirect/Direct)

Ronin

Katana

Wraith

Wraith

 

Flight Section

Kikyu

Flight Section

Kikyu

Specialist Section (will be a Mech infantry section when I order some infantry on the first)

Fenri

Looks like you could use some Harpies or Tsuiseki's and yes, definitely infantry. Infantry and some "hard" target killing aircraft would round out your force pretty well.

I would diffinately recommend getting a SyRam Talon. Both the faction version as well as the open market are excellent choices.

 

Usually a section of infantry with FiST upgrade is enough to handle your strike needs. If your son needs more replace a section of Kikyu with a pair of H-M Longbows.

Here are some recommendations. If you're picking them up when you get the chance (no immediate hurry), pick and choose from the following:

 

Infantry: Any. Best to start with Armored Rifle Teams ('Crunchies'). Eventually add in some heavy weapons. Mortars can be added last. Normal Rifle Teams ('Squishies') can be included anytime after the initial Armored Rifle Teams.

 

Attack: Starhawk VI, Wolf tank, Dingo (Open), Ronin, Knight (Open), Thunderhawk, Cougar, Dictator '60.

 

Fire Support: Thunderbird, Regent, Raptor/Raptor II (Open/Terran), Sovereign III (Open).

 

Recon: Talon, Spartan, Ashigaru, Stiletto, Sabre.

 

Gunship: Merlin, Tsuiseki, Fenri, Dragonfly

 

Transport: Centipede, Tsukai, Hedgehog

 

 

If you want a prioritization/explanation of any of the above, just ask.

Talking about kitbashes, I was going to build a couple of the Ronin variants from the JOR2 fluff with GGCs instead of the GCs. Until the Boneyard went down due to the price increase that is. I still can't decide whether I want to use the arms from the Hawk V, Hawk VI or the Butcher (sans missile launchers, of course). I am leaning toward the Butcher arms since the longer barrel fits in more with other Mitso-Ta models and their long barreled weapons, though I have to admit I was thinking about a smaller GGC arm and giving the model AA. Hmm.... decisions, decisions. :wacko:

 

The guns are going to get Shredder for certain, I like the fluff description of an anti-infantry version of the Ronin. <_<
