For those of you who've been kind enough to anticipate these fellows, I've now got the two new, re-worked, re-codexed incarnations of 1 and 2 platoon finished. Hooray! Today I had the chance to take pics of 1 Pl, so here they are. First, the whole platoon, front and rear:
Now B Coy, 2/24th is now a designated 'tactical' company, and 1 and 2 are the 'tactical' platoons, with 3 platoon in more of a support role. The idea is that the company can hold its own - if required to do so - with its own organic fire support; so too can 1 and 2 platoons, although not so much 3 Pl. For a little more discussion and their points cost, please see Post 122. The old version of 1 Pl can be found here.
These, then, are the constituent parts of 1 Pl. NB: Please excuse the more crappy painting - some of these models were painted 6 or 7 years ago, and their flesh tones and eyes are pretty ropey!:
All of my officers count as being armed with lasppistols and power weapons. Sadly, I've felt the need to replace my old medics with grenade launchers - medics are just too expensive now at platoon level...and I do so love grenade launchers!
The sgt is based on a friend of mine.
'B' Section - missile launchers (click link for more details):
Yes, I know they're not on 60mm bases. I don't plan to put them on any either, but I will get some 50mm or 60mm discs to blu-tac them to if needed.
'C' Section - autocannon (click link for more details):
Ditto with their bases.
'M' section - 2 melta guns and my new demo charge 'wrecker' model:
