Wargames Illustrated will have an article on A War Transformed in a future issue, and they've let me have a couple of the photos taken for it. Here's one of them:

My British platoon for AWT is coming on, I'm going to do a separate post about it rather than hijack this one.

Is the squad size of 8 fixed? Can you get smaller infantry squads?

I don't know, it's WI's terrain. I'd like one for AWT.

Two more photos taken by Wargames Illustrated for the article they'll be publishing in the near future.

Features North Star figures we lent them for the photos.

It's not a handgun. Though you could do a quick conversion. It's a pair of snips, the figure is a Norn from the Norse section.

The set includes Fenris which you could use as a Prowler, and a Valkyrie. I did think what you could use the Valkyrie for. Maybe a Beguiler, but I think it'd suit being a Guardian Spirit.

The other peasants: https://www.northstarfigures.com/prod.php?prod=12070
These three are great for AWT. The main power that has returned to Earth in AWT is the triple goddess. This pack for Dracula's America represents the triple goddess for that game.
