In a previous post we mentioned Fasolini’s Company, a mercenary unit from the Hammer’s Slammers universe that features in the novel Forlorn Hope. We also showed a couple of tracked mobile gun units that are the company’s heavy fire support. Today we have Fasolini infantry figures to show off, a package having just arrived from the sculptor. The figures wear peaked armoured caps with a visor and clamshell body armoured, and are equipped with heavy cone-bore rifles. The use five-round missile launchers for anti-tank and AA work – the launchers are externally identical, but use different rounds depending on the target.
We also have a couple of personality figures for the company – in the middle of the picture below is Major Fasolini himself. He may be slightly portly but don’t underestimate how tough he is. To his left is Lieutenant Waldstejn, a Cecach native who inherited command of the company during the civil war. He still wears his Federal uniform and carries a locally made assault rifle, but has a Fasolini helmet to link him into the company comms network.
As well as individual packs of infantry, we also have two Hammer’s Slammers detachment packs – a Company Detachment and Support Detachment – that match the lists in the rules, and include extras such as resin bases for the infantry teams.
As you can see, these are master figures – it’s going to take some very slick work on Phil’s part to get these guys moulded and ready for Salute, but we should make it.
