The Terran Alliance as the greatest interstellar Human nation, a fact which the Dindrenzi Federation longs to change. Yet even as the forces of the Zenian League batter against its borders, the Alliance endures… and grows stronger.
Readers of the Facebook page would know I’ve been painting my Terrans for Planetfall. Not just a single helix but half a core, aerial and heavy helix. The 8 sessions of 2 hours each were tough but brutal (much like a game of Planetfall) but the work got done.
As promised, here are pictures of the finished models.
TERRAN ALLIANCE – CORE HELIX
The Vidar Heavy Tank – armed with linked M205 Magellan Cannon and Hammerstrike Missiles. It is the Command Element of the Terran Core Helix.
Heimdal Medium Tanks – armed with M127 Drake Cannons. Long range is a maximum of 20 inches.
Ullr Mark 1 and Mark 2 tanks. The Mark 1 is an Anti-Aircraft tank and is deployed in squadrons on 2. The Mark 2 is a Shield Generator that attaches to Armoured Squadrons.
The Valkyrie is a light tank with the ability to make a special recon move before the game and take and hold objectives.
The Sinir is a Medium APC Tank. It is unarmed but capable of carrying up to 9 bases of infantry into battle.
Terran Alliance infantry bases can be fielded with option extras like an Officer base, Breacher Teams & Gun Teams. Gun Teams are armed with Raptor Grenade Launchers while Breacher teams increase their DR from 3 to 5.
HAWKER INDUSTRIES – AERIAL HELIX
The Sheriff Heavy Gunship is (currently) the only Terran vehicle in the game with a Nexus Designator. The Nexus Designator allows artillery strikes onto the battle.
Rushing across the skies, the Guardsman Heavy Attack fighters can move 30 inches and still engage ground targets (hitting on 5’s instead of 4’s of course)
TERRAN ALLIANCE – HEAVY ARMOUR HELIX
The Tyr Heavy Support Tank mounts a Dual G-72 Legacy Laser. This monstrous weapon is also found on the Terran Leviathans.
The Baldr Tank Destroyers can fire their G-38 Heritage Lasers over 40 inches with 5 AD or effective range at 20 inches with 6 AD. Three of them in a squadron with a Ullr Mark 2 makes a deadly little squadron.
Planetfall is fast becoming my favourite game – I suggest everyone gives it a go – you won’t be disappointed, either by the game play or the models.
