Putting together my Salamanders force for the Istvaan V Dropzone Massacre (I know, who'd sign up for that mission!)
As advertised I'll be using figures from Alternative Armies range of Retained Knights for Ion Age
|I have a good lot of these guys (with what Ion Age call the 'Angis 12.5mm Rifle').|
|Doesn't quite match the iconic image of the Bolter, but it can't really be anything else. Bonus points for bayonets!|
|Next big batch is these lads. Five of each with what look like energy weapons.|
|I just love this guy - he's going to be a Veteran Sergeant (maybe with Artificier Armour and a Power Fist) even if his weapon just looks like an Autogun! (a 'Tumbler SMG' in Ion Age)|
|This'll stand in for a Heavy Bolter - I wonder if it looks more like an Ogryn Ripper Gun though? (a 'Moth Type 12 Multi Launcher' in Ion Age)|
|Four guys with pistols, they have groovy crests and Ion Age has them tagged as Nobles, but I'll put them into action as Scouts instead|
|A Command squad if we ever saw them. Three studious chaps (a Lieutenant, Medic and TechMarine) in the top row and then a Librarian or Chaplain in the bottom left and a Captain to his right|
|Two who may just stand in for Assault Marines (armed with a 'Roaz Axe' and an 'Octa Sword' in Ion Age)|
Three strangely armoured guys with a variety of weaponry, Ion Age labels them as in experienced Aloutens with older style armour. I reckon they'll do as Veteran Sergeants!
So that's it so far. Four full tactical squads with a lot of energy weapons, a Scout squad and some Company HQ.
