I made my first Firfight army in pretty quick time using a mix of figures and models and, as a result, I found myself with a bunch of Beyond the Gates of Antares troops left over. These are going to be my next battlegroup.

These will be the private army of a space mining consortium of the GCPS - The Ganymede Interstellar Mining Pact (this may change). They will mainly consist of tactical infantry squads with some heavy weapons. I don't really expect this to be a great winning force but more like a militant private security outfit. They should be interesting to use due to their simplicity and limitations.

Well, that should stop Rocket Morton from getting all the girls.

I like the strider's camo and the magenta glowy bits - very striking. Smiley

Looking at which models you have, I can't help but think they'd make good Enforcers too.

Not bad, and I really need to pick up one of those striders.

I like the dark "Stealth" look.

Oddly, your Enforcer has me thinking in the opposite direction, seeing if I could adapt it for Beyond the Gates of Antares. Maybe as a piece of Boromite Mining equipment?

They look great! A nice contrast to my Saurian Corporation.

I like the idea of the GCPS being a collection of interests in a vast trade co-operative with varying agendas and every possibility of being unco-operative where power and money are the main objectives.

I got a few crew painted for my heavy weapons.

I ordered a couple of BGoT packs with guys with a (sort of) mortar thing. I had to order them from the UK because the only ones I could get here in Australia only have two crewmen and I wanted the three crew versions. So I've been waiting for them to arrive so that I can finish them (hopefully tomorrow!).

The figures are Beyond the Gates of Antares (repurposed) and the weapon is scratch built using a left over from a BGoA gun drone, an old base, a few buttons and plasti-card

I finished my heavy weapons crews and added a mortar battery too.
I've almost finished 1250pts so they should be ready for the next time I get to play a game.
