Gecko Mk12 Rifle: "The Blackjack"

The proxy Blackjack.
"Following the now infamous Taft Police Action it has become clear that our lack of advanced power armour technology is proving decisive in our engagements with off-world agencies. It is a priority that the technical knowledge for power armour construction and power supply be researched as a priority if we are to dominate the battle space…."

- Director of Defence Science Technology and Materials Bureau

With no model out for the Blackjack yet- and me franticly painting to get ready for an upcoming tournament- I had to find a stand in model.

Luckily, I had a box of Geckos I had bought a year ago.  I'll never play Nomads, but I loved the models... and very importantly, they were on special!

And... in a fortuitous coincidence, I entered a painting competition a few months ago and I penned a little fluff piece for my Ariadnan spec-ops model which turned out to be rather fitting for this "Blackjack".

For those out there that can stand a bit of heresy, read on.....

AAR: INFINITY: 300 Points- Steel Phalanx vs. PanOceania: ITS2016- Safe Area

Credit: Unknown.
It's been a long time between games for me- but even more so for my regular (semi-regular?) gaming group.  So it was my pleasure to host and watch two beautifully painted armies smash into each other in furious combat.

Both armies have had some serious painting done and it was time for the Dragao to take on Achilles in hoplite armour backed up by Hector!

It was set to be a clash of Homeric proportions... and I was not disappointed!
