These guys have already seen a fair bit of table time and battle report photos, but I finally took some gallery photos:
Kingbreakers Scout Squad 1 were done the night before Redcap’s May tournament. And by “night” I truly mean the entirety of a long, long night… Definitely worth it though, I’m extremely happy with how these guys came out, and they look great on the table. They’ve gotten prime placement in all of my recent battle reports. In-game value be damned, Sniper Scouts are totally worth having just for the iconic battle report imagery of a bunch of rifles pointing out of a ruined facade or wreckage.
The only real variance from the standard Kingbreakers paint-up is that the legs got heavily drybrushed with Bleached Bone rather than edge highlighted. That shifted and lightened the color a bit from the underlying P3 Hammerfall Khaki, but that differentiated them better from the Dheneb Stone cloaks as well as the power armored Marines, both good things.
I took legs and the missile launcher torso from a bunch of regular Scouts I have from a Battleforce Box and magnetized them as well as a sniper torso to give me a sixth guy and the option between the two weapons. The missile launcher pose is pointing downward pretty hard, but that actually works well since they frequently wind up perched up on some balcony or ruin top.
Normal Scouts are kind of funny looking, the bulky proportions throw them off. Sniper Scouts though look much more reasonable, I think because the heads aren’t as large. Both have grown on me a lot though. Fortunately I think infiltrating is going to be more important in this edition, let alone cheap and plentiful troops, so I expect to be able to use these guys a lot.
