Found by the UCM during the Battle for Earth in the pre-war military research and training academy at West Point, North of New York City, the Osprey Light Gunship was on the cusp of entering frontline service when the Scourge invaded. As a ready-made design, the decision was taken to rapidly manufacture and bring a small number of units into active service to ascertain whether more designs in the archive should be taken seriously as possibilities for the future.
In early combat deployments the Osprey has served with distinction. Larger and tougher than the common Falcon, it sports a weapons suite that allows it to engage armoured air and ground targets, as well as massed infantry. Also, Colonial engineers upgraded its primary armament to a pair of servo-mounted UM-101 'Victory' Railguns, the very latest iteration of the stalwart Avenger model found on Sabre main battle tanks.
The Osprey Light Gunship is something a bit special, which is fitting for our 2021 show exclusive miniature.
Modelled after some of the original sketches by David Lewis for Dropzone 10 years ago (sketch included in the pictures for the lulz), the Osprey has finally got a model! Celebrating Dropzone's inception Decennial, this new ship has been raised up from the history books and is ready to join UCM armies worldwide!
With a retro-future hybrid design and a bunch of weapons, this ship is heavily armed and armoured, capable of dealing out a lot of damage to a whole host of different targets. Eschewing the UCM's utilitarian design ethos, the Osprey is a real jack-of-all-trades, making it an excellent aircraft to fill any holes in your army.
With short ranged Light Railguns, it'll make a mess of light vehicles, and its Multimissile is excellent against other aircraft. With 2 Damage Points and Resilient, it'll take some serious firepower to deal with.
You can find the rules for the Osprey here (and of course on the army builder).
Contains 1 resin multi-part miniature with poseable engines and railguns.
Resin miniatures supplied unpainted and unassembled. This kit will require cleaning and assembly, and could need some small holes filled. Other miniatures and gaming mats are for scale purposes only.
