Well, having just finished general assembly on my first squad, I thought I might just as well start a project log for my army.
This log will be about my short story's main protagonist: Aradeus Sturm, a veteran Watchmaster of the Lehr 143rd Heavy Infantry. Plan is to build the tanks and Mechanized Infantry of the 130th Armoured and the foot troops (Sturm's platoon) in this log, and start another one for the 1st Stormjumpers later on. Yeah I know, I'm full of plans. I suppose I'm lucky I've got the money for it (I'm gonna need it, 'cause all infantry's going to be getting rebreathers and FW equipment).
I'm trying to theme them kind of like WW2 Germany (hence the StuG), but keep them a bit high-tech at the same time. I'm going to include a lot of foot troops, but they're going to be the best of the best.
The 130th Armoured are ten Armoured Companies, the tenth Company consisting entirely of Jagdpanther Destroyers, plus one Mech. Inf. Company.
Standard Panther weapons outfit: Battlecannon, hull-mounted PaK M41 (lascannon), pintle heavy stubber.
Königstiger weapons outfit: Vanquisher cannon, hull-mounted heavy bolter, pintle storm bolter.
