Ogre (Iron Grenadiers APC)

When the Iron Grenadiers need to insert a team of Shock Troopers under heavy fire, there is no more suitable deliver vehicle that the Ogre APC. The Ogre's thick hide deflects almost any sort of barrage that can be thrown at it. It is capable of transporting an entire 12-man squad to their objective and, upon arrival, can provide them with fire support in the form of two .50 caliber co-axial machineguns, two 40mm repeating cannons and dual H.A.D.E.S. rocket launchers. The driver is able to operate all of the weapon systems by means of an advanced targeting and fire control system built directly into his helmet.

Each Ogre is operated and maintained by a highly trained driver known as a Troll. These men are hard even by the Iron Grenadiers' standards. Each one is an experienced mechanic, capable of repairing just about anything found on the Ogre. They're also legendary amongst the IG for their stubbornness, ferocity and overwhelming will to succeed, so it's no surprise that a great many Trolls eventually move on to the IG command ranks.

The Death Dealers

A while back, I dyed a 30th Anniversary Iron Grenadier black and then decked him out with red and gold trim. I intended to make a whole squad of them. I still plan to do so, but in the meantime, my friend KingBiohazerd asked me to make him his own squad of them. He was rather fond of the name Death Dealers, so that was the name we gave them. The Death Dealers are an elite squad of Shock Troopers led by Captain Miller, also known as the Black Llama. Other veteran members of the squad include Sergeant Shock, Corporal Werecat, Corporal Hung and Corporal Reaper.
