just checked. Your right Golem. The Panzerjagers weren't discontinued they were just entirely out of stock for a while.

Alkasyn those Drone Muls are awesome.

Hey, thanks! The only problem is the base size - the original Muls are on 55 mm an d these guys are on c.a 25, I will have to remember that they are not able to fit everywhere I want them to. I was contemplating using the 55 bases with these drones, but they looked way to silly.

The drones are stand-ins for Traktor Muls in my USARF, as well.

I came for blackjack ideas but now need to know about those drones-- what base mini are you using ?

It's these little boys: https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/210632/human-interface-nakamura-tower-masamune-drones

Also Nakamura Tower models - in essence, the models from that game fit perfectly when it comes to size and are a little more cyberpunk than Infinity miniatures, but if that doesn't annoy you then you got a lot of nice proxies, especially for Heavy Infantry types.

You get 5 in this box and in my case I paid around 35 USD for the box. I used the leftovers for prizes at a local tournament :) 

I'll try to get some better pictures of the Drones and the Blakjack here:

Here's the one I built that I haven't gotten around to painting yet. I found the model on sale at a game store, it's the IMEF Bulldog from the Reaper Chronoscope line. It's actually about the perfect size. I chopped off the big box magazine with exposed cannon shells and replaced it with a bit of pencil I sawed up, and used a paintbrush protector and the barrel of a Flames of War M4 Sherman to make the DEP, and spare tracks from said Sherman for the chest mines. I think he looks pretty good, although I'm considering breaking off the canopy thing and gluing it back in the closed position.

I fear that the sniper model can ruin the whole miniature, ariadna snipers look quite silly, its just the rifle with a not particularly detailed scope an a longer barrel, the t2 is not that much better.

DUDE! Where did you get that?

yeah the Anvil Ajax models work great for blackjacks. I feel they strike that nice balance of looking high tech enough for ariadna, but low tech by comparison to everyone else. And looking like they'd be a bit slower too.

I made three into my own blackjacks conversions. With some dream forge games Valkyr parts.

Those are amazing. I wish I could justify buying the kits to make them, but I don't even play USARF...

The Robocop blackjack is such a fun twist. Which variant do you use him for?

Thank you Sgt Rock. You can also still take 1 blackjack in vanilla Ariadna. The Valkyr also happen to make outstanding Space Marines or Pan-O heavy infantry. Used a few of mine as knights before. And the eisenkern storm troopers as fusiliers.

Also got one of my Blackjacks all painted up. Looks a bit like the Master Chief. But he looks awesome with the rest of my USAriadna

I'm also using a Haq Azra'il with HMG. So far I've omitted the shield but am also looking for conversion ideas myself.

So I choose to go the easy route. Darn ITS rules prevent me from using what I want. All I have to say is I HOPE Carlos is reading this and sees the size of this gun. It HAS to be at least this big if not bigger for the T2 rifle. Big Corvus Belli...BIG!

I buy her from friend who got models from kickstarter or something. Its cyberpunk game with many models great as Nomads or Aleph proxy.

Ah, thank you. I'll search the interweb and see what I can come up with.

Human Interface Nakamura Tower is the full name (or HINT).

I got the gun from SSU heavy infantry sniper team from DUST. Loved that game. You can still find them at online gaming stores. I'm hoping to use the mini gun from the same line of figs when I get the chance to convert another Blackjack.

Well, I just found my Blackjacks! I'll probably do a weapon swap (I prefer weapons mounted on the back of their arms, or over the shoulder), and some other detail work (like chest mines), but they could just be left as-is. They're 45mm tall to the top of the head, which is the height of a S5 silhouette, perfect!
