I finished some more marines.

Platoon command


A forward artillery observer


And a sniper


The radio operators are from Empress and the rest are from Gringos. The Gringo Marines are a bit more chunky in their proportions and a bit taller. But I don't think it is a problem once they are painted. There are some great poses in the Gringo range. But I think I like the proportions on the Empress ones a bit better.

Looking at the pictures it dawns on me that I have not painted their boots. That will be rectified.

Doc: I made some 'Jungle'* and you are at least partly to blame.
 :D

Slightly 'cartoony' jungle, but jungle, nonetheless....

Very nice indeed ! I am mixing gringos 40 and Empress marines ,too . works quite well and gives you even more diversity in your units.

While I am still waiting for the next batch of NVA I have been building some more Jungle and I got this guy of eBay and grimed it up a bit and added a flight stand. My Marines will now ride in style.

I made it myself out of an acrylic rod. Glued to a wooden base covered in plants.

Perhaps, but they have just arrived at the paint desk yesterday and folishly have their backs to the crossbowmen who are veterans of my paintdesk, they have been waiting to be finished for about 6 months.
