You get a lot of miniatures with the starter box, which is nice as the new vehicles are not inexpensive. For the UNSC side you basically get a reinforced platoon with some light armor support. This includes a command stand with Officer, Radio Operator and Medic
8 Stands of Infantry with a mix of ARs, Grenade Launchers and Shotguns
2 Stands of (SPnKR) Missile Launchers -I always liked that name.
and 2 stands of HMGs. Which apparently don't need additional ammunition. Just like in the game!

Among the terrain pieces you also get two bunkers. These are cast on a resin sheet with punch out sheets, with some laminated cardboard facades to spruce them up. I opted to assembled and paint mine with a mix of greys to make them look a little more concrete.
This leaves me with with just the 2 Warthogs to paint and then it is on the aliens. Hopefully I can get them done in time for Christmas break.
