Algoryn Support Units Painted Up

Hi everyone,

I have finished my Algoryn Support units.  They include the X-Launcher and the Mag Light Support with two troopers each.

These are the miniatures I had so much trouble with due to a stupid mistake from my part.  I gave them a wash of Engine Oil instead of a Dark Brown enamel wash.  Engine oil dries glossy and remains sticky where it accumulates.  Naturally I had to clean them up without damaging the colours beneath.  Well to cut a long story short, with the help of ear cleaners, mineral spirits, a good audio-book and a lot of patience I managed to clean them up pretty well.

As you can see from the first picture, I was given a targeter probe instead of a spotter drone with the Mag Light Support blister pack.  I already need 3 more spotter drones for my all AI squads, now I need another for this unit.  I will have to write to Warlord Games to see if they sell spotter drones separately.

I have now started to paint up my last support unit: the Plasma Cannon Support unit.  A nice bulky piece of equipment which I think I will put a bit more work into.

While I am painting that up, I will also start painting up a unit of Targeter Drones.  These are an Auxiliary Choice and they give units advantages in shooting, but at a price!  I will go into the merits of the units later on in separate posts.

Well that is all for now.  Next post will be a date with the deadlier sex of the Algoryn force. 

Farewell and good health.
