Ironblood's Army

How many Hyena's, Roboskulls and Laser exterminators did the Baron have?

I assume he was supposed to have loads, but in the comic he only ever seemed to use one of each at a time. Red wolf was the worst pilot ever as everytime he showed up he was scared off by moondancer before he could do anything.

No wonder the Baron lost all his battles.

I haven't read all the issues yet so maybe I'm wrong. Was there ever an issue where the baron attacked with loads of Hyenas and roboskulls and laser exterminators?

There was a convoy in Operation Spearhead http://www.bloodforthebaron.com/blood/S ... %2002.html but this page from World Enemy http://www.bloodforthebaron.com/blood/W ... %2015.html suggests the Hyena was a one-off.

I'm sure there are pictures of multiple craft, but I may be thinking of the posters...

There's a few Hyenas and Laser Exterminators in Hawk's Challenge
http://www.bloodforthebaron.com/blood/H ... %2022.html

Two armoured columns in the lead, with back-up artillery and at least four laser exterminators


Of course they're being destroyed only by Blades and a few Australian farmers. Let's face it, the Baron lost his battles because the Shadows were apparently incompetent idiots. Baron Ironbloody useless......

Great Thread.

Of course there is a series of boats (one might be a floating shadowtrak) in the top left of this page:

http://www.bloodforthebaron.com/blood/A ... %2003.html

I love the landing craft. That is so cool. Given that everything in this story reflects a prototype they were building (as seen from the catalogues recently) --even the satelite that space force uses-- I wonder if someone was thinking of building a shadow landing craft. (I know I certainly am.)


Also: I had puzzled over that page with Red Jackal. I decided that if there had only ever been one Hyena, probably someone would have noticed if he'd stolen it to put in his sand pit.

I'm assuming this is an error, but in the first issue that Anton Nobokov (Red Jackal) appeared in (when he was a Russian driver), the limousine that he is in charge of is attacked by several Red Shadows and a Hyeana! (Cobra calls them H.I.S.S. tanks in the U.S.) Red Jackal then escapes by jumping his limo onto some logs in a river. So, whatever became of that tank?...

:nobokov: : "And I think I bumped my head, too!"
