X29 Blockhead Battlesuits
I've had second thoughts about using the GZG US power armour figures as a heavy assault squad, although I may put one squad together just to see what they look like before I decide. While browsing TMP yesterday I noticed that the Critical Mass sci-fi range has been re-released by Ral Partha Europe, so I took a closer look. As I was scrolling through the figures I spotted two packs of X29 Blockhead Battlesuit figures, which are either power armoured infantry or some sort of robot.
I thought these would be an excellent alternative to the GZG power armour squad and would make a very good battle robot assault unit, with their head design matching well with the 'cyclops' helmets of the hard suit human infantry. They would also fit well with the Massive Atomic corporate army theme. I'm hoping that the figures will be slightly larger than the GZG infantry but I'll have to wait and see. If not, I can always use them for something else.
