Here we go again. Thought I'll start another thread as I've cluttered the other one up. You've seen the good guys (RDF), now for their foes; the dreaded Cerberus Corporation.
Back along, I did a HUGE mining compound, this proved a pain for storage. So I've set about making a much smaller version. As follows…..

Drill platform.
Core analyzer.
Deep range mineral analogy vehicle. This is a large mining vehicle used for surveying in harsh regions.
Deep range mineral analogy power suit. Very similar to military power armour suits but a larger civilian version. Used in support for the above vehicle.

First is the fluff.

Cerberus Corporation

Cerberus has a long and established terra-forming history on Mars. Specialising in anything from mining to surveying to atmospheric processing. Also specialising in less savoury activities, such as blackmail, murder, arms dealing and other shady under the table dealings. Unlike some corporations, who prefer to keep their not so legal activities quite. Cerberus are much more arrogant and headstrong about their activities and as the name suggests. Guard all their investments and shareholder interests villainously.

Cerberus employs their own security force. They use CinC Solar suits for operations on Mars. They have access to heavy weapons including CinC mortars, AT guns and the odd GZG static heavy siege gun. Cerberus troopers are well paid, well equipped and conduct themselves, with almost self-assured fanatical attitude.

With money no issue, they can afford the latest tech. Their main workhorse is the Bear APC which serves their general needs. Plus they have access to the latest heavy armour. Including, the Rapier MBT and the heavier Gladius. They also employ Raven dropships, supports by Falcon gunships.

The OKI Corporation approves of the use of its structures by the Cerberus Corporation.

With OKI you are more than OK.
You are in safe hands.

Some quality and bonkers scratchbuilding there!

It is fun looking at stuff and seeing various bits from other models.
Though you do seem to have used an actual drill bit for the drill bit!

Could you give us a bit of info on the ground cover?

I've been thinking about doing a similar board, and I love how yours turned out. Great job, and thanks for posting.

Sweet! My 6mm is all based for a desert world, so this is relevant to my interests . . . where are the construction vehicles from?

Basically I picked up a bag of ballast, building aggregate from the builders mercents.

It was blind luck that the colour was red/brown, just what I wanted for Mars landscape. I then sived it to remove a lot of the big stones and glued it all down.

where are the construction vehicles from?

The dozer next to the blue Hex2go is Steel Crown Productions. The excuvator is GZG and the big funny looking one is a coversion/strach build.
