Forward Recon Troopers are elite scout specialists. They are lone operatives, trained for stealth commando missions and surveillance deep behind enemy lines. Olivia Neutron-Bomb is one of the Imperial Army's highly skilled FRTs. Like all FRTs, she is equipped with a heavy automatic pistol, a light back-up pistol and several concealed blades. Her customised support pack is equipped with an auto-grenade dispenser and lightweight auxiliary servo arm alongside the more usual life-support mechanisms, supplies, spare ammunition and medi-pak.
Olivia's particular speciality is removal of key enemy individuals - competent officers, clever strategists, charismatic talisman troopers or innovative battlefield engineers. By eliminating such individuals, enemy morale and efficiency is greatly reduced. Olivia's trademark is to decapitate the target and bring back the bloody head as proof of a successfully completed mission.
I painted up Olivia in a fairly traditional grey and black combination that can be seen on many an Imperial Army trooper. The jazzy combat trousers probably aren't regulation issue though!
Olivia is the commemorative figure from the recent Bring Out Your Lead event, hosted by Wargames Foundry (read more here). She is a gorgeous sculpt from the talented hands of John Pickford (my unpainted copy of the figure is below).
I haven't yet decided what use I'll put Olivia to, but I'm sure I can find her some friends to hang around with!
