On Patrol with the RDF - Anvil Gate

The area in which the RDF now patrol has a few key settlements, right now of course they are small, but in time they will expand and grow.

The RDF are tasked with protecting the colonists on Kometenmelodie; EarthGov themselves are funding the RDF for the first year.
After that first year the locals must fund the RDF through taxes, so it is essential that the RDF are seen as something worth paying for...

Their first patrol was in their new MS1 Pathmaster which is allocated to Alpha Squad and carries their markings.

They also went out in a COID Camel MPV as this they did not want to arrive in only 'tanks', so a civilian vehicle was used to soften the edges a litte.

ALPHA SQUAD
 
 
 
BRAVO SQUAD
 
 
CHARLIE SQUAD
 
 
DELTA SQUAD
 
 
 
 
 
Their first port of call was Anvil Gate, fortunately the ECM had a good working relationship with the accidental colonists there so it was not a cold call.
 
 
 
ANVIL GATE FROM ABOVE
 
 
 
 
THE RDF APPROACH
 
The colonists can be seen working the land and going about their daily routine.
 
 
 
 
 
ALPHA AND BRAVO SQUADS SCAN FOR TROUBLE
 
 
 
 
THE TWO ARMED COLONISTS OF ANVIL GATE KEEP AN EYE ON THE RDF
 
After the trouble with the renegade BPI employee, the colonists invested in some hired security.
 
 
THE COLONISTS CAN BE SEEN COLLECTING THE RED DEEMA SEEDS WHICH THEY SELL EVERY 3 MONTHS WHEN AN OFF WORLD SHUTTLE COMES
 
 
 
INSIDE ANVIL GATE PEOPLE CAN BE SEEN GOING THROUGH THEIR DAILY ROUTINE
 
Ready to unload supplies
 
 
Anvil Gate actually has 2 physicians today...
 
 
A film crew making some sort of documentary are also about, streaming their programme live to the cosmos!
 
 
 
FLAK WORMS ALSO LIKE THE DEEMA SEEDS
 
They are very slow and have very thick body armour, they are almost impervious to small arms fire
 
 
It is a good job they are slow as if you got mistaken for food you would be in trouble
 
 
THE RDF ARE WELCOMED
 
 
 
The RDF are welcomed into Anvil Gate, possibly as they recognize Sam Ramirez in their ranks.
Sam did OK for the 'gaters' so if she joined the RDF, then they are OK too!
 
 
 
NEXT STOP, MARIPOSA....

It looks to me like the walls are keys from a laptop and the houses are the covers from plastic bottles with sports caps. Very ingenious.

It's all looking good. Let's hope that along with the new toys, EarthGov upgraded the dice the RDF are using because the ECM had some c*** luck with them!

Cheers
