Albedo ACP164 Unit Box Set contains 8 multi-part miniatures to build a HomeGuard Airmobile Squad.
After Beii, many HomeGuard commanders saw the value of airmobile troops in defending their own worlds, but lacking the funds to operate massive Aerodyne fleets, adopted other methods. These mainly included the relatively cheap Enchawah EC 37 LARC series of rotorcraft.
Airmobile troops are equiped with the LAKW 1-30 Carbine.
The LAKW 1-30 was a new assault weapon designed to replace the PMKW 2-18. Firing the new L30 round in a cut down 1-56 mechanism, the 1-30 was capable of single shot, three round burst or fully automatic fire, and was designed for flexibility in use. It featured a retractable stock, 30 round magazine and a very modern computer assisted reflex sight, which also enhanced aiming of the optional underslung 40mm grenade launcher.
The miniature range has been digitally sculpted and the figures are supplied as multi-piece metal castings to allow a wide variety of troop type to be depicted. The miniatures have been designed to overcome many of the problems associated with multi-piece metal castings. Heads are cast with a neck that finishes in a pin that locates in a hole in the body; where possible pairs of arms are cast as a pair holding a weapon with pins at tops of arms that locate in to holes in shoulders. This ensures that components align perfectly and are easy to glue together. Figures supplied with 25mm plastic slotta-base.
