First USMC platoon finished!

I cracked ahead painting another 2 squads and a corpsman to complete the first platoon. Quite happy with how fast I've been able to paint these little guys, 10mm sure is a pleasure in that regards.

The whole platoon


At 12 men a squad, it's a lot of guys per squad. With 36 for a platoon they can also be fielded as 4 8-10 men squads when we need something other than marines.



After having tended to a wounded marine he's left with a mess of drenched bandages, the marine probably whisked away by a dustoff helicopter. The medic is a slightly converted ANZAC figure.

No. 3 squad


Some of the men in #3 squad. I particularly like the advancing marine cradling the M16 to his chest. A nice pose and very crisp sculpting.

On Patrol

Here #3 squad has moved out on patrol in single file. Since I have not painted a single NVA yet, they're safe so far. I'm going to pause painting USMC for now, waiting for Pendraken to release the helmeted LMG figure that Derek H has done as a conversion. Due in August I'm not going to bother with resculpting helmets for the machine gunners any further.

So next up I guess will be some NVA. Now to decide on the uniform colour. Anything from green to khaki to nearly buff is possible.

Very nice work. What brand do you use for the tufts of grass?
