It seems a little odd to have so many blogs dealing with Solar Empires content but I think this is the best way to handle all the content we are generating for the setting.
We have been working now for several years to make Solar Empires a fully realized hard science fiction setting and we have generated a lot of content but we also realize not everyone who comes to this blog wants to read post after post about the various details of the setting. They just want to see game reports and hobby related content. That is why we are organizing things this way.

I've constructed this squad of troopers to represent typical Household Footmen. I used Wargames Factory Shock Troopers for the base figures then augmented them with Neo Brit Trencher Heads from Maxmini. I also used Trencher backpacks and Comm Backpacks from Secret Weapon Miniatures. They are based on 1/8x1 inch steel washers. I'm pretty happy with the way they turned out.
The small mechs are a pair of Jovian Battlesuits usually piloted by lesser Jovian Knights. They are M.A.R.S. HEROES toy robots I picked up at Dollar General. The same brand I have made all my other battlesuits out of. These however are sold individually.
I'm not sure when I am going to get around to painting this force. Right now I'm working on Pirates but I hope to get them on the table soon.

I've got another 14 of these guys to paint and a light mech for the force as well so I better get on it. I also created a No Limits army list this week for my pirate forces so hopefully we will see a pirate army in the field soon.

I thought I would show the way I am doing the bases. Just some random scraps of granny grating and zip ties and other odds and ends to give the impression of a scrap pile. This was a simple and cheap solution to doing bases for these guys that I thought would look good for them. The bases are similar to what I have done for my other pirate band "The Blood Born" but I plan to make these even more heavily rusted when I paint them up.
I now have 20 Scrap Dog raiders which I plan to use as the core of this small force. I plan to add some scouts and some heavier miss matched veterans as well and light vehicles and a few mechs.
