It’s time to kick down some doors, smash in some windows, blow an airlock and basically just smash everything when it comes to taking down your targets as Icarus Miniatures reveal the artwork for the amazing looking Alliance Boarding Troopers…
“The standard operating procedure for breaching an enemy ship is for a squad of boarding troopers to travel to the enemy vessel in a special craft. This craft has a type of ram on the front which can puncture through the hull of an enemy vessel, before opening to allow the boarding troopers to disembark. Once within, boarding troopers use short ranged weaponry such as shotguns and flamethrowers to clear the corridors and advance on the ship’s critical systems.”
In the game these troops work best up close with their shotguns doing the brunt of the work. They will be punching forward for objectives then digging in to make sure they hold it at all costs. The upgrades for them include a flamethrower and sword/energy gauntlet if you want to get really stuck in.
I think the artwork is great and as you’ve seen earlier today these guys can deliver on the render/miniature front too it seems!
Would you be part of a boarding party?
