Rogue Stars Algoryn Mercenary Team & VIP


Another Rogue Stars team put together out of Warlord Games' Gates of Antares minis, this time using the Algoryn Special Division Commander Ess Ma Rahq and her bodyguards.  I'll be using the four grunts as a mercenary fireteam and the character as a VIP scenario special. 


These troopers are all Algoryn, an obscure but highly militaristic Outer Rim race noted for providing small forces of well trained and uncommonly reliable soldiers to anyone with the money to pay them.  Most of their earnings are claimed by their world government, where the funds are used to endlessly improve the already-impressive planetary defenses.  Whether they're paranoid or just very well-prepared, the Algoryn home system is one of the most heavily fortified regions in the Rim.  


Theme for the crew is Mercenary, of course.  Probably using the Opportunists doctrine to synergize with their excellent reaction capability.  The goal is to build a team that can effectively punish their enemies for every failed action attempt.


The lass playing with her commo earpiece is the team leader, while the pointing gent has had some scout training.  The other two grunts are just your basic riflemen.

They're fairly lightly equipped but well-trained and especially good at playing a reactive game.  Primary shortcomings are a relative lack of durability and non-combat skills, and they could also benefit from some movement boosts (Fast, or jump packs most likely).  Their shooting game is solid and their excellent martial arts training makes them quite dangerous in melee.
