In this chapter, Bunda Akhtar launches the second stage of his coup: Hunter-Killer Assault Vehicles (HKAVs), like the one pictured above, attack key facilities in Bongolaan's capital, Ratankiri, represented by the map found in Traveller Double Adventure 6: Night of Conquest/Divine Intervention.
I've been using the Star Wars Miniatures throughout this webcomic to represent individual characters. Now it's time to take a more epic view to illustrate how these events influence the characters' decisions and actions.
For this I used my micro-scale (6mm, 1/285 or 1/300) collection modern and sci-fi armored fighting vehicles. The modern vehicles are made by GHQ, while the sci-fi ones came from a US distributor of Ground Zero Games.
Meanwhile, the half-a-dozen or so HKAVs in Bunda Akhtar's army are represented by a single Aerial Hunter Killer from the Micro-Machines Terminator 2 Judgement Day Collection#2. Apparently it's considered very rare among these collectible figures
As to the buildings: They're another hodgepodge collection from various manufacturers such as, GHQ, Warhammer 40K Epic, Jr Miniatures and even BattleTech.
For this chapter's soundtrack, I chose Lux Aeterna--Requiem for a Dream, which is apparently a popular song used in computer games. I just listened to this in it's entirety and I feel it provides a dramatic musical representation of the end of the Galactic Alliance's last planetary government.
T'was the Swap Meet Before Christmas...
