These babies get to attach themselves to a Massive or Large class of ship, they then do not have to stay close to them, and are allowed to move around the battlefield quite happily.
They grant the ship a bonus of +1 to hit against any target that is in line of sight of the Recon Fighter. So if you normally needed 4's you would score a hit on a 3 instead. A nature 6 is the only way to get two hits and roll again though.
To represent these daredevil pilots (cause lets face it a Recon Flight basically has speed going for it and not much else) I decide to build them a special stand, show below in all its glory.
I wont lose track of where my Recon Flight is which is good, because something like that can be easy to forget.
The design of the stand is very simple... I took a Spartan Square base that I had spare (long story), and a Games Workshop flight stand. I then pushed the flight stand upside down into the Square base, clipped off the excess sticking out the other side and viola. One Recon Flight stand.
A simple thing, but one I think will prove usful, and doesnt look too bad. I can, depending on how adventerous I want to be, look at making the top of the stand an exact match for the Tiny Token... but not sure about that just yet.
