A week or two ago, I was jammy enough to pick up 18 Mechs (mostly Heavy and Assault) with a combined retail value of over £100 for just £45 on eBay. 7 of these Mechs will join my "FoxHounds 3060" force, for Civil War and Jihad era games. The other 11 (plus a plastic Hunchback) will form the backbone of my Word of Blake Army.

Here are the first four I've manage to paint up, working only at night (because I'm pretty much painting miniatures on commission from sun-rise to sun-set at the moment).
Most of the Mechs are suitable for either a pre-jihad WoB force or a second line, Word of Blake Militia force during the actual Jihad. As an added bonus, they can double up as Com-Star Mechs as well.
The twelve Mechs I've purchased, combined with ten bases of infantry, six wheeled vehicles and 3 helicopters give almost an entire level III (Battalion) force. I'm just five elements short. The plan is to fill the remaining slots with another Assault mech (or possibly two) and a couple of battle-armour squads.
