Today we are going to have a look at the Infantry Upgrades for Dystopian Legions. As these are only 2 minis per box so I will cover all 4 sets together.
Each Force has some kind of Support mini that can be 'added' to thier Infantry Sections. These range from Drummers that can help with Command Tests to Medics that can lower the amount of Life Points lost by the Section.

Kingdom of Britannia Drummer Boys
He cant attack or get hurt but helps with Command Tests and his special card boosts certain ranged attacks.
As you can see above, the front of the box has a stunning full colour render of one of the Drummers.
The game cards can but used to swap with cards already in your game deck to add more tactical options when army building. You can see more about this in the ToaTS Rules Summary
The 2 minis in the box are similar but the are 2 different sculpts. This is a nice thing as it means almost NO repeated minis in a force.
The detail on the coats is amazing. Every loop and rope can be seen very clearly.
I think these are stunning pieces and would highly recommend them to any Dystopian Legions player. Even historical gamers out there as they dont have any 'steampunk' details on them.
8 out of 10 Badger Points.
Prussian Empire Army Medics
His game card can reduce the Life Points taken during an attack and he reduces the Successes during other attacks while he survives.
In the box you get 2 game cards, 2 bases and 2 Medics. The STAR and Command section on the cards lets you know when in a turn the card can be used and how many points it costs to use it.
The Medics are 2 very different minis.One in a prepared pose sporting a Prussian helmet and the other in more of an action pose. Both are holding what looks to be some sort of injector.
Very impressed with them. They fit the look of the Section but also stand out enough to be noticed. Really looking forward to fielding these soon.

Federated States of America Forward Observers
The right Observer is lining up a Motar Strike and calling it in.
The Forward Observers are an impressive pair. In the game they are going to be amazing.

Empire of the Blazing Sun Army Medics
These Game Cards help out with the armies Morale
Almost no extar little vents or tabs apart from on the bottom of the base. Great to see on such highly detailed minis.
They do have a mould line running around them but is smaller than it looks in the picture. A very quick file and you wouldnt even know it was there.
Although the Empire of the Blazing Sun isnt really my cuppa, I do like the Medics. They fit the look and the theme really well.
8 out of 10 Badger Points.
You can pick up each of these boxes for a bargin of £6.75 at The Troll Trader. You cant get ONE mini for that in several games!
Each of these 4 sets is great in its own way. They help the forces differently, stand out and keep the feel and theme of each army.
I would recommend picking up the box if you are considering playing the game.

So there we have it.
A quick run over the Support options for all 4 forces.
