Endless War result: Action Jackson joins the Desert Scorpions!

The men of the United States Marine Corps, of the Free French Foreign Legion, and of the 2nd Dragoon Guards are not the type to call for help. But this is such a time or some of the most important oil reserves, and underground secrets, might fall to another Bloc.

Huge forces and whole regiments of the famed Long Range Desert Group have been rushed East from Northern Africa. And with them come the elite soldiers of the Desert Scorpions. These should tip the scale in favor of the Allies. They come with brand new units, carrying powerful and modern weapons, the best the Allied war machine can offer: Phasers.

This relief force is spearheaded by the veterans of the Heavy Commandos who have fought all over Europe within the SAS, commanded by their charismatic leader: Major Jackson Clayborne. With these seasoned men at the ready to join the fight, the Allies will surely reverse the situation and keep the Garden of Eden and its secrets into their hands.

Preview: Desert Scorpions infantry

Paolo Parente just posted a few preview pics for upcoming Desert Scorpions infantry figures over on Facebook. Take a look!

“The Desert Scorpion Troopers are being developed as Hard Plastic figurines. The tooling process for such figurines is not only more expensive, it is also super demanding… After digital sculpture the figurines need to be engineered for molding and then retouched before the actual molds can be processed. The third phase is starting next week.”

New release: Trucks and walkers and guns, oh my

Big release today. Two new units each for Mercs, Desert Scorpions and Luftwaffe!

With the recent renewal of fierce combats in the Middle-East, the Allies have been calling every reinforcements they could muster, but eventually had to hire Mercenary companies to help them turn the tide in their favor. As such, they have provided these new “allies” with some recent equipment, mixed with some old stuff laying around. Mercs mechanics did a wonderful job and created war machines that even regular Allied troops envy.

The Desert Scorpions of the Long Range Desert Group have arrived! Still fighting a long war in Northern Africa against Axis forces who have returned, the elite corp of the Desert Scorpions have expanded to the rest of the Middle-East to counter the new threats that have arise. With their lightning strikes capabilities and seasoned troops, they are a welcome reinforcement to all Allied soldiers in the region.

Once they’ve jumped, Paratroopers of the Luftwaffe need as much heavy support as possible. One of the easiest ways is to drop dedicated support units like the Rocket Launcher Squad and the Anti-tank Squad. These specialized squads are equipped with heavy weapons that greatly enhance the offensive capabilities of Fallschirmjäger formations. This reference will allow you to assemble the two following variants:
– the Fallschirmjäger Rocket Launcher Squad takes on all types of enemy infantry and light vehicles at a safe distance.
– the Fallschirmjäger Anti-tank Squad allows your forces to engage armored targets from a relative safe distance, with pretty good chance of making them into smoldering heaps of metal.
