Special Reconnaissance Teams consist of 3-vehicle squadrons tasked with operating behind enemy lines for prolonged periods of time. 

Gaia First! tactics typically pair a single Locust Support Vehicle with two Badger ATVs as escorts. Both designs have comparable speed profiles and suspension systems enabling close support in case of enemy contact. 

With a full complement of drones the Locust can provide a number of support roles while in enemy territory. From precise scanning and geo-mapping of otherwise electronically obscurred terrain/materiel, to sabotage of infrastructure with drone-deployed munitions or assisting target acquisiton for its escorting Badgers, the Locust is the linchpin of this formation.

Special Recon Team

  • Model Preparation ​​​​​​​
    Due to the casting process resin models require clean up before assembly or painting is attempted. Resin casts require a mold release agent which is greasy and can hinder glue bonds and prevent paint from adhering to a model's surface. To ensure ease of assembly and painting please wash all resin pieces in warm, soapy water and rinse thoroughly.

    Some mold release is particularly stubborn to remove and requires soaking the models in the soapy water solution for an hour or more. After soaking, rinse the models well and let them air dry before attempting assembly. Household dish detergent works well for washing resin and is generally cheap and easy to find!

    Safety Recommendations
    Resin models are suited for advanced modelers.

    While curing, resin models may retain small air bubbles or imperfections which require clean-up before painting.

    To fill small holes use modeling putty - most game and hobby shops have some kind of 2-part epoxy putty available for purchase.

    Mold lines or other raised imperfections should be removed with either a sharp hobby knife or sanded.

    Please use caution when using any hobby knives and remember to cut away from your body.

    When sanding resin be sure to wear protective coverings for your mouth, nose and eyes as resin dust can be harmful if inhaled. Also, always sand your models in well ventilated or outdoor areas and take caution to contain any dust while cleaning up your workspace and tools afterward.
