This weekend I found another battalion of Reaper Car tanks that I had forgotten I had. In the original Kickstarter fulfillment, Reaper was short a few of this type of tank. They arrived after I had finished the other battalions (see previous blog posts). I painted them in a variety of camouflage patterns. I decided that I would paint these in a black “special operations” color scheme.
This picture shows the entire battalion: four companies of three platoons each, plus a battalion headquarters base.
Painting them in shades of black and gray seemed a little bit like cheating, but I am happy with the final result. When we start play testing Look, Sarge, No Charts: Science Fiction, I think this battalion will have some sort of stealth or cloaking capability.
I am going to call this unit the “Shadow Battalion.”
