Until recently I only had two Mambas. One a brawler variant and the other was less than complete: no head and engine. Now I have two more: a Black Mamba and a Snake Eye Mamba. So, it looks like I have the elements of support squad.
Having taken the above pictures, because pictures are proof, you will have to take it on trust that I find I now have a shoe box size box full of Heavy Gear miniatures. I am blessed, and clearly going to live forever, because that's how long it will take me to assemble and paint all of my acquisitions at the rate I work.
PS: It has been hot this week and I've felt drained by the heat, which must be a sign of something, like the need to be on a beach enjoying the sun, going for a swim in the cool sea, and afterwards having a cool drink.

|Didn't realize that two of the little Dogs had broken arms, they're that tiny, but you can see it in the picture.|
Back here I took some pictures of GZGs not VOTOMS, but I was asked if I could take a picture showing them next to other mecha. Hopefully, people will now be able to see the relative sizes of GZG Dogs, Heavy Gear and BattleTech mechs.
NB: If you compare the old pictures of the little Dogs to this new one the increase in quality between my old camera and my new one is quite remarkable.

And this weekend I managed to slap some paint on my Northern Guard Gears. Still a long way to go, but I'm one colour application closer to finishing.
The Jaguar on the left has had the main green shaded, while the Hunter on the right has had the arms painted the rest remains to be done. I really want to get my Northern Guard squad done, but unfortunately, with the nicer weather I've been going out more, mostly to shoot arrows in archery competitions, so the painting has been put on the back burner for the time being.
