Grasshopper GHR-5H

This miniature has been extensively modified to represent the Experimental Grasshopper GHR-7X from Experimental Technical Readout: Mercenaries, Page 5. The head was removed and the miniature was removed from the base and re-posed. The replacement head was made from stryene card (an old transit pass), as was the torso-mounted cockpit. The jet exhausts were made from bits of plastic minis out of the bits box. The wire supporting the miniature was concealed using green flocking foam.

Black and red are the official colors of the Kell Hounds. Per FM: Merc (revised), page 77.Other references: Nightstar, CB: Miniatures Rules (p 25) Wolfhound, FM: Mercenaries (plate 15) Shadow Hawk, CM: Mercenaries (p 22) Commando, CM: Mercenaries (p 108) Annihilator, CM: Mercenaries (p 113)
