Starship Troopers - Power Suited Troopers
My plan behind the Starship Troopers Project is to try and use all those odds and ends that seem to be languishing at the foot of lead mountain.
Having finished the first batch of 1st Corp - Light Armoured Mobile Infantry, I thought I would compliment them with some Power Suited Troopers which have not seen the light of day for several years.
I envisage these to be used somewhere between the Mongoose CAP troopers and the larger Marauders (which are difficult to obtain these days.) or early protypes of the power suits?
I picked these up from Eureka several years ago, they have long since disappeared from the website, and I don't recall part of any particular range, they were one of those impulse purchases which I never really found a use for them, until now.
The castings themselves have few weapons, at best something akin to a flame thrower or Auto-Cannon, hardly enough to turn the Arachnid tide, but their design compliments the look and feel of the mobile Infantry and they could yet prove valuable in encounters on Klendathu.
