    My near-future Earth Defense Force, based around my Robotech Phalanx Destroids.
    My first foray into 6mm gaming, this force will be pitted against my predominantly Mech Zentraedi Battle Pod force.
    This list is by no means optimized or beardy, I still need to get some games in to get a better feel for the rules.
    The Mechs are meant to be “glass cannons” that hang in the back with the Armd Artillery, Hvy Cav to push up the centre, Lt Cav as a flanking force.
    Will be eventually adding some Hvy Inf and some metaform Robotech Valkyries.
    Command Resoures(CR3) went to pumping up D to 2 on Hvy Cav and Armd Artilleray

    CHQ Hvy Cav (with command decal!) FC0 P3 M4 F5 A5 D1(+1)
    Hvy Cav FC3 P3 M4 F5 A5 D1(+1)
    Light Cav FC1 P2 M5 F3 A3 D2
    Light Cav FC1 P2 M5 F3 A3 D2
    Light Cav FC1 P2 M5 F3 A3 D2
    Phalanx Mech FC2 P2 M3 F5 A2 D2; Extended Range(M)
    Phalanx Mech FC2 P2 M3 F5 A2 D2; Extended Range(M)
    Armd Artillery FC2 P3 M3 F7 A3 D2(+1)

    1/300 Sankei Hikone Castle papercraft for scale.

    That’s a pretty swick force there, man! Doing without infantry is a bold move – you’ll have to make the most of mobile tactics – don’t try to assault defensive positions, harass with the light cav and pound them from long range with the artillery, and God help them if they let themselves get lured into the open! Only limitation is that only the CHQ has Guide Fire – some Signals/Recon would be a big help!

    I feel bad for liking the building the most…

    Definitely considered that, Recon is going to be added eventually, it’s in the queue! Thanks for the feedback!

    It is a sweet building.

    Reminds me of my first foray into Horizon Wars – a lot of tanks and Artillery. It does great in normal games but gets crippled in Adventures…

    Lovely painting though! What are the tanks and MLRS, I have been looking for missile artillery like that for a while?

    Ah, I meant the missile trucks used as Armoured Artillery, not the mechs.

    Yeah, sorry. Going back over what you read it was actually quite clear.
    Good job I am not in charge of anything…

    The missile launcher appears to be an M727 mobile Hawk missile launcher.

    OK, I give up. No idea how you insert an image so here’s the link – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:M727-Hawk-hatzerim-1.jpg

    So depending what toolbar you have selected, click the image button and a box will open into which you paste the image URL:
