Sword Worlds/OutRim Coalition

Command and comms - picture from GZG website
Today I received my order from GZG for additional OutRim Coalition figures, to be used for a Traveller Sword Worlds force.  This is just a quick post to sort out the figures and their weapons.

RC01 - Rifles
RC02 - Rifles
RC03 - SAW gunners
RC04 - Plasma gunners and light missile gunners
RC05 - Heavy plasma cannon
RC06 - Twin Gauss autocannon
RC07 - Twin rail mortars
RC08 - Command and comms
RC09 - Anti-vehicle missiles and heavy railgun snipers

With the packs I had purchased before, this gives me 24 rifles, 12 SAWs, 4 portable plasma guns, 4 light missile launchers, 2 heavy plasma cannon, 2 gauss autocannon, 2 mortars, higher command, 4 anti-vehicle missiles, and 4 snipers.  Breakdown of a fireteam might be as follows:

Fireteam A
2 rifles
1 SAW
1 plasma gun

Fireteam B
2 rifles
1 SAW
1 light missile

Fireteam C
2 rifles
1 SAW
1 anti-vehicle missile

Fireteam D
2 rifles
1 SAW
1 sniper

Another thought might be to increase the fireteams to five men by adding an additional rifleman.

And yet another idea might be to pull the portable support weapons out and make them platoon level assets and increase the fireteam to six troopers consisting of four rifles and two SAWs each.  

Lot's of decisions to be made with this project!  I do know I am going to do them up in some sort of winter scheme, well, at least some of the figures since I now have enough for a couple of platoons!

    1. Hmmm, maybe I should get some sort of brokerage fee from GZG from your purchase. :)
