The Molling Incident, Ep. VII: The War Party

At 0600, the Honschu wardogs sniffed aggressively at the bits of Nazi uniforms in the hand of Kanni-Lok. He looked affectionately at his charges and spoke softly:
"Now, my children, check the path. As always, you are our eyes. Make sure none of the enemies of the Honschu are lying in wait. Go!"
Hoschu dogs do not bark, the most lethal predators run silent.  The pack broke swiftly into the jungle and disappeared like sharks through water.

Shortly after, the Allies' polyglot assault column began its march south to the attack positions.
With the main body are elements of:
Kingdom of Colores "Eight Ball" Team
Warriors from the "Three United Tribes" of Honschu (... their dogs & Carnosaur riders)
Merill's Marauders Battlesuit Company (Mercenary)
Colores 1/141st Artillery (Mortars)
...and Cochran's Independent Ranger Jump Company (Mercenary)

Waiting at the other end...

Kommander Schacklow and his Karmesin Soldiers with elements of the 166th Heavy Autom Regt and the 422nd Autom Infantry Regt. are preparing to defend the entrance to the enclave.
_____________________________________________
I have persistently been remiss in identifying the miniatures on my blog. Hopefully, this is the start of fixing that.

For the Alliance the figures are:
Games Workshop Kroot, Kroot Hounds, & Knarlocs
Crossover Minis Minions
Bombshell / Counterblast Drones
Cochran's Rangers are Sedition Wars humans, with Puppet's War Jump Packs

For the Reich:
Kommander Schacklow is a Reaper mini from their Chronoscope range
The Karmesin Soldiers are Games Workshop Imperial Guard with some OOP Chaos Apce Marine head swaps.  I have despaired of building any more of these guys, but I think Anvil Industries makes a helmet close enough that I may be able to build out a total force. (Woot!)

The Heavy Automs are Star Wars prepaints, the Telosian Tank Droids (I love these models!)
The Infantry Automs are Copplestone Future Wars Robots

I would like to welcome our 2 new readers:
Katsuhiko JiNNai and
Gordon Richard

Thanks for looking,

Next Up: Base Assault!

  4. So, the base is against a river to protect its flank, and there is alot of open ground that's been cleared in front.
    It's going to be bloody...
