Pictures of the two large clanks will be up tomorrow, they have some natural lines that actually somewhat mimic those of French uniforms. So  I am trying to copy to colour of those. It looks somewhat random (tough having two of them helps a lot) I think having them next to infantry of the same uniform will make it look a lot better.

EDIT: Here they are;




Still haven’t decided what to do with the small one. I think robots will be napoleons thing the whole flesh is weak decision after the Russian fiasco and all. The English will get more of a “her majesties royal scientists most modern weapons” and the Americans, should I use them, will get stuff that goes BOOM or makes other loud noises.
 

And continuing  my rambling, I am planning to do a lot of underground fighting in this campaign, the goblin caves below the surface is where the Lunarium is found and all, does anybody have a good guide to a modular cave board? I was thinking of using hexes or something, large ones.

Very nice - I have a few of these in my MK shoebox but had discounted them as being too 'flat'. Having now seen your results I think may have to revisit them with a view to adding another unit to the Caliph of Khosinda's arsenal!  :)

For now we will be using my girlfriends night goblins, as I currently am far to down on my money to buy my own. But I will sure get some in the picture ones I have some English done (maelstrom shipped them today)

EDIT: I now also have one of these bassed and undercoated ready for paint.



She will be accompanying some named character, her name is
‘Vicky’ the Ironclad Bitch.

My Brits arrived today, and I assembled them with much glee. I will probably post some pictures of the French power suits, Vicky the ironclad bitch, and a runaway experiment all showing in scale to my first few painted Englishmen.

Anyhow, I am having doubts about a few things. First of, game system, I was planning to use savage world showdown, but I have some trouble deciding on stats. So I wonder if I perhaps would have more use of some other game system, probably g.a.s.l.i.g.h.t.

Some of my problems, the command “squad” (the correct term escapes me for a second) what should they do, should I field them as a unit of their own or should I field them spread out among the five men groups of soldiers?

The specific  effects of the command squad,  They should offer some sort of support effect, of course, but I have a hard time deciding what exactly (especially the two banners)

The four riflemen, now I understand what their historic advantage is, but four guys with slightly more effective rifles don’t really sound all that kicking. But the relatively short rifle would make for a nice scattergun, making them effective scouts and deadly on short range. But again I find a lack of abilities that would enforce this idea.

Thats about it for now, I have three groups of five, the command group, and five grenadiers (who wear the peninsular caps, rather then Napoleonic, to differentiate them more)
