Amphibious Assault Hovercraft
15 mm scale
I was a bit stalled on my pirates, and my sci-fi roots must have been showing, because I whipped this off in less than a week which is pretty speedy for me. The hover is of course an Ion Age "Adder Combat Lifter" missile pod variant I've had kicking around for a while. A nice model; it has its own style but you could use it for a lot of different factions without it looking out of place.
The riders are Clear Horizons' Hell Divers, which were the only seated figures I had, but turned out looking perfect. I painted them to look very "Star Wars clone trooper", without actually intending to. I just wanted to distinguish them from my other squad and not be green. I picture this vehicle doing high-speed shore assaults, rapidly disembarking a team of infantry and then falling back to support them with missile strikes.
