The Combined Forces of the Southern Cross are known by many names, depending on where they are and what their cover is.


To most of the population at large, they are the Knights Hospitaller of St John.


To a number of organisations, they are the Southern Cross Weapons Manufacturing Company


To the Australians (both Free and Royal), they are "The guys who work for that nut job, over at the Fiji Observatory. They actually think there's Bug Eyed Monsters on Mars."

TEAM THUNDERWING (Southern Cross Mercenary Unit)

COST: 250pts for the FSMC QUETZALCOATL, its compliment of Fighterplanes, and Leutenant Commander Thunderwing.

The FSMC QUETZALCOATL is a FSA SAVANNA-CLASS SKY FORTRESS (worth 160 of the 250pts) with the following extra MARs:

    Combat Launch, Experienced Engineers, Radio Network, Night Flyers Upgrade

The 5 Fighterplanes aboard are highly-skilled veterans, and have the following TFARs:

Lt. Cmmdr Thunderwing is an Ace Fighter pilot with her one-of-a-kind Blackbird-Class Fighterplane.

Utilising some technological advances from an artifact that even the CoA didn't know about (plus the fact Thunderwing is a genius) has produced an aircraft that is nothing less than a masterpiece. The Blackbird is a Fighterplane, but with the following upgrades and TFARs:

    Acrobatic Pilot, Convoy Duty, Evasive Manoeuvres, "Ghost Lights" , Extra Machine Guns, Miniaturised Sturginium Reactor, Rapid Fire, Strafing Run, Superior Engine, Strategic Objective (100pts), Night Flyer.

"Ghost Lights" (when flying by itself during twilight/night, halve your AD)

Miniaturised Sturginium Reactor (this plane does not use Fuel to move at full speed)

I have kit-bashed a Tenshi http://community.spartangames.co.uk/in/photostream along with an Hospital Ship (counts as an Olympic/Titan)


the others should be easily-built from kits already made by Spartan. (two of the units are just "standard" sets with either bits added, or removed)


The CNS Mako will wait until my next big order (seeing as i'll need to use the parts-service for an Aristotle hull and Wavelurker template, Prometheus upper-hull, Epicurus turret-tip, and Epicurus/Hetrodotus drone-rack)
