I just tossed up some pictures of the miniatures that I'm going to use in the FUBAR that I'm playing later this evening or tomorrow. This is going to be the last outing for the Khurasan rebels as frontline LRL troops because I've recently ordered the Rebel Regular troops last week. So this may be the last game, for a long time, where the USCMs have the quantitative advantage over my Liberty rebels.
My USCMs, by the way, are from QRF's line of Deep Space Marines. They are pretty good sculpts that look way better painted up. It's a nice range that really should see more table time. And as always Gunnery Sergeant Anderson is leading our boys to victory! This is probably his last action as a section leader. Next time he'll be with the company command team doing his proper job as the top kick of the company. We might even meet his boss- the LT! That fellow has been spending way too much time directing things from orbit. Time for him to spend some field time with the troops!
I also have a few vehicles in the pictures mainly my USCM M577 APC and two Rockjumper technicals. The technicals will continue to see front line duty as will the M577. However my LRL's will be seeing some new Neo-Soviet armor to give them a helping hand against the Americans!
Anyway, check them out and leave me some feedback.

Looks good, could use some more close up pics tho- esp the rebel minis tracks.

Overall it looks like a balanced game, but that's an awful lot of Green units. I think that could make the game a bit lengthy, since there will be many activations where they won't be able to do anything.
I'd like to see more detailed pictures of the QRF marines – there aren't many good pics of them on the web. Does your camera have a Macro setting?
Look forward to seeing the AAR.

Afraid not. It's an iPod touch and those pictures were taken at about 6" to 8" from the models. That's about as good as it gets unless there's an app out there that can do stuff like that.
As for the green units. I wanted to give the USCMCs the quality advantage but I didn't want a veteran unit on the board. These are peacetime marines, not combat harden veterans
not yet anyway. So I set them as seasoned. That didn't leave a lot of room for the LRLs. So I I upped their activation so they activate on 4+ so they won't get quite a stuck as normal. But still, it's a 50/50 chance to activate. They are motivated but not very well trained troops which is how I envisioned the LRL troops. But some of their units are well trained regulars. I don't have THOSE guys just yet
Maybe in a couple of weeks they'll make their presence felt on my battlefields!

Yep, got to get my 15mm IF guys and the DLD vehicles I have for them done
