Welcome back to the third stop-off on our 2021 roadmap. Today, we’ll be adding further additions to to the ever-expanding Void Scar Miniatures range of models and rules.
Last month we saw the Verse Dominion receive reinforcements from off-world – the Rhino, Reaver and Goraths. To answer the growing threat, the SFA has provided more vehicles and equipment to its forces in the form of several new Bullfrog variants, namely the Grendel APC, Snapdragon SPAAG and Aurora MRS. The Anvil has also received a firepower upgrade with its powerful Heavy Railgun for engaging newly emerging near-peer adversaries being encountered out in the Grey. Lastly, the hordes of enemy infantry who often assail SFA ground forces has also caused a reaction within their senior battle planners, with the introduction of modular Pintle HMGs capable of being installed on any SFA vehicle.
As the SFA’s expansion is met with increasingly capable enemy armoured vehicles, the Anvil has received a potent firepower upgrade in the form of the Heavy Railgun. Capable of firing metal slugs at extreme speeds, the kinetic energy impact is more than enough to atomise whatever finds itself unfortunate to be in th Anvil’s sights.
The Grendel APC maintains the Bullfrog’s high transport capacity yet still provides overwhelming anti-infantry firepower. A roof-mounted rear turret has two heavy machine guns installed, which send a fusillade of fire down-range to answer the hordes of enemy infantry swarming across the battlefield.
Despite enemy air power being relatively light out in the Grey, the SFA realise that it’s better to have the protection of AA coverage before an attack, rather than after. The Snapdragon SPAAG is a straightforward turret addition to the Bullfrog, but unlike other similar variants, can easily engage multiple air targets which find themelves in the local airspace. Not onty that, but the primary autocannons can be pointed downwards to engage surface targets as well, with its armour-piercing rounds even capable of threatening the heaviests of enemy tanks.
Shrieking overhead, rockets launched from the Aurora Multi Rocket System will be sure to pin enemy infantry units in place or score a lucky direct hit on enemy vehicles and damage the weaker top armour. With the new FOB rules in From Ashes 0.0.5, your Leader units can even request the Aurora’s indirect fire when they are held back in reserves!
Lastly, the Pintle Heavy Machine Gun can be attached to any of the current range of SFA vehicles to provide that extra bit of firepower when engaging infantry squads, and is ideal for fending off enemy close assaults.
The Chosen Guard have also received reinforcements, as they too can take SFA Auoras and Verse Dominion Reavers to help in their battles across Kommodas, but of course ‘modified’ to suit their own strategies and battlefield tactics.
