Pictures

A total of 30 brave Cobalt mercs, arrayed in three squads, assault section, support section and HQ. Oh, and the air support ofcourse. Resin body, white metal wings and engines. Pretty standard construction. Due to resing casting process, the bottom is utterly featureless.
There are actually three different leader types in the range, but the third was too heavily armed in my opinion to really fit in with the HQ, so he got posted with the lascannon fellows. The organisation is based entirely on figure availability and resulted in these 6-man squads (5 troopers + missile launcher).

More pictures of these figures.

Notes

The captain's second plasma pistol is costed as an extra close combat weapon, because that's what the game effect is.

As this list utilizes all the Cobalt Mercenary figures that I have, there's not much flexibility in it. The terminators are probably extragavant in a 1,000 point list and you could split the Land Speeders into two squadrons easily, but that's about it. Frankly, there are too many heavy weapons and too few basic troopers.

I do have an APC in a color scheme that generally fits these guys. That could be fielded as a Rhino for some additional mobility.
