Sword Worlds Expansion

Picture from GZG site
Today I placed an order from GZG for some additional OutRim Coalition forces, which will be my proxy figures for a Sword World force.  The mix of packs will allow me to field mission specific units by adding in numerous support weapons and higher command.  

I've also ordered the Traveller Sword Worlds book to obtain a bit more detail and background info.

Sword Worlds

A quick placeholder to flesh out a project idea later for Traveller/Striker/Tomorrow's War.

Sword Worlds Platoon - Combat Environment Suits, 9mm ACRs or 4mm Gauss Rifles with grenade launchers, Gauss light machine guns, ATGM launchers, 10cm mortar.

  • Three squads, each with
    • Three fireteams
      • Fireteam A
        • TL with rifle
        • 3 riflemen
      • Fireteam B
        • TL with rifle
        • 1 rifleman
        • 1 assistant LMG gunner
        • 1 LMG gunner
      • Fireteam C
        • TL with rifle
        • 2 riflemen
        • 1 AT gunner
      • 1 HU-420 Botond Grav APC
Figures?  I have some of the Ground Zero Games Outrim Coalition that might just do the trick.

The Swedes in Space!

Just a short entry as I play around a bit with creating a new faction for my Tomorrow's War project, using 2300 A.D. as a guide...the Scandinavian Union Defense Force.

Taking a hard look at the Ground Zero Games Scandinavian pack, and after obtaining a bit of info as to what the figures in that pack are actually carrying in terms of small arms (as you can see from the picture it is a bit difficult to discern what the figures truly look like), I have decided to add a cold weather force to my science fiction gaming.  

The SUDF is organized into 28 man platoons, built on eight man sections with a command element of four men.  Each eight man section has a section leader, five riflemen, a SAW (or MG) gunner, and a man carrying a missile launcher.  Weapons are as follows:

G4 7mm Binary Assault Rifle (Gevär Model 4)
MG4 7mm Binary General Purpose Machine Gun (Maskingevär Model 4)
PM 7 Pilen Man-Portable Guided Anti-Tank Missile (Pansarvärnmissil 7)

Weapons and organization from the Etranger site.

For vehicles I am going to go with the Chariot tracked APC (also from GZG).  I like the look and each should hold a half section.  It will be called the Stridsvagn.

Modern Poles - Colors

In looking at this picture of Polish troops in Chad, the overall tan effect with some splotches of what appears to be gray along with green webbing, and dark green Rosomaks, might be how I paint those nice Terrain4Games Poles I picked up a few months ago.  The pictured soldiers are wearing caps, while the miniatures are in helmets, but I can live with that difference.
