|Reinforcements for the Control Battalion|
I started with some of the Control Battalion (pictured above). They are sci-fi favourites of mine for sure - I wish very much that Khurasan would make some 28mm castings for these...oh well. Khurasan had, late last year, added some new codes to the Control Battalion range - a different pose for the SAW gunner, some RPG-type anti-tank weapons, mortar teams and a couple of new regular trooper poses. I did a couple of each.

Up next was the Federal Army. I had two more fire teams' worth of primed Federal Army troops, so I finished those off too. These have rocket launchers instead of melta gun-type weapons as their heavy support weapon. They also sport some of the alternate SAW poses for the Federal Army, including one of the female troopers.

Up next were some power-armoured Corporate Marines. These are multi-part 15mm models from Khurasan. I had high hopes when I ordered them, but these are far from my best work.

The sculpts were a disappointment too. Intended - I believe - to represent a more "realistic" take on sci-fi power armour, these are some of Khurasan's weakest sculpts - and I am a Khurasan fan boy! These models leave you wanting more - or at least they did for me. To compound the challenge, I struggled with the paint job - just couldn't come up with much of a scheme, so I settled for a grey to generally match the corporate marines. Didn't turn out that great. Not terrible, but not great.

For my next post there will be some Nova Respublik armour...
