Very nice work.

You should have swapped the officer and the RTO round for the photograph from behind ^__^.

Thank you kindly Mr Hicks, you keep making them and I'll keep buying them (inc late WW2 Brits...)

Cheers chaps for the encouraging comments, please point out anything that looks totally wrong, I generally miss something and need all the help I can get...

Here you go...



The more I read about the potential size of a USMC platoon the more it takes on the size of an entire RLI Commando (other project in 20mm), and they had an MAG for every fourth man.
I'm definitely going to need more riflemen. So far I have five M60's, each of which needs a loader and another bod carrying more ammo; my vote is for a pack of grunts with M16s humping extra ammo cans like the Thompson carrying chap in pack NAM6 (who I don't have so far, as it would mean another 3 x M60).

If you check the M16 packs there are figures with M60 ammo wrapped round them dotted about.

Oh and more Brit WW2 just about to be released.  ;)
