Epic Moderns: Iranian Battalion

Hey Folks,

Long time no post as usual.  I have been gradually working away on my Iranians for our Epic Modern rules adaptation and now have just shy of 3000pts.  I like the Iranian's as its an ecletic mix of British, American, Soviet and Chinese equipment, all in various states of repair.  The army will probably prove to be pretty rubbish as all the units are small (usually around 7-8 models) but it is 14 Activations!

The Battalion is based around;

  • 3 Tank Companies (Chieftians, M60's and M48/M47's)
  • 2 Mechanised Infantry Companies (M113's or BMP-1s - I still need to get the BMP's)
  • 1 Pasdaran "Revolutionary Guard" Tank Company (Type 69's)
  • 1 Pasdaran Infantry Company
  • 2 Basiji Militia Companies
This is supported by various artillery, recon units and air support.

Awesome Jas!

The camo on your birds has come out really well, those are the plastic ones right?

This is just reminding me that I really need to get cracking into finishing stuff off for my various Moderns armies...

I, as you know, am a confirmed 'gypsy' army fan.
