I have recently been working on some GZG Crusty infantry and power walkers, along with an Alternative Armies Mullo AFV as a troop carrier (though it is rough on enemy vehicles as it mounts a class-5 fusion gun as main armament).

I also did up some unarmored infantry (2 skin tones to reflect either different subspecies or ethnic groups of Crusties).

I must have missed GZG's Crusty Mechs… or maybe I just don't understand what a power walker is?

I do like Alternative-Armies Mullo AFV Repulsar… although I don't know what a Mullo is? And I would go with Anti-Grav instead of Repulsar?

Here are the "Combat Walkers"

"Mullo", have no idea where that comes from.

The "repulsar" is basically anti-grav. The problem I had with the repulsar version of the vehicle is that the front "forks" of the vehicle are pretty thin and fragile and I figured they'd break off sooner than later. I reinforced them with lots of putty (which didn't adhere well and caused all kinds of issues). The other 3 Mullos I have, I am probably going to have to add some thin strip styrene to the inside surface to seal things up some and pour in some 5-minute epoxy to bond everything together. Kind of a pain.

They are very fragile. I have a Super Blue Adder and dropped it. Snapped the left fork. Resin so it's not hard. I drilled it and inserted thin piano wire. It's holding together but I take a lot of care with it.

What are you using for your flight stand?

I used an Corsec small adaptor in a hole drilled in the bottom, with an Corsec round base. Naturally out of production these days. I have various height stems (1" up to 2") so I can use the vehicle in different heights – mainly nap of earth or hovering behind a building/trees patch.

I like them. Thanks for sharing!

Nice choice of AFV, I have been wondering what to give crusties for armour.
