US Rangers
« on: June 02, 2014, 08:53:53 AM »
Gentlemen,
First Post..WGF plastics..oh dear be kind!
This time of the year when I usually start a small remembrance/ D-Day project and this time I will paint up a squad of WGF WW2 American Infantry.
Here my first figures:





Eventually
two MDF Higgins Boats will get my boys to Dog Sector/ Omaha Beach..
and maybe a Krautish MG42 nest as objective marker. Well, we will see.

Cheers

Welcome, SP! We have been waiting for you...

Cracking stuff mate. I am really tempted to buy a box of those WGF Americans right now...but I will be strong!

Hopefully you will like it here, I think the grass is greener over here personally.

Hopefully you will be posting some more ECW on this fine site too... :)

Cheers,

Westwaller.

Woah..THANKYOU gentlemen
For the warm welcome here  :)
I've had an account here under a different username ages ago but I suppose it has been deleted..I can't remember to have posted anything anyways. Anyway, here I am.
Finally found the place where some long lost friends have been hiding  ;D
Seems a nice enough place!

@gamerMac
The insignia are decals from Warlod and a royal pain to apply, they are sooo tiny.
I've ordered some from Great Escape Games, maybe they are a wee bit bigger..

@Westwaller
Nice seeing you again!!
Of course I will eventually torture you with ECW. But careful now, I turned my coat and am a Royalist!
For the time being I've got tons of WW2 and AWI though and if/ when Victrix release plastic WW1 I finally will be totally doomed..

@grant
-insert kissing/ hugging smiley-
Missed you and it hasn't been the same without you..

Cubster here too by any chance?

Cheers

Phenomenal paintwork.  No worries about WGF plastics - they turn out some very good stuff nowdays.  Pleasant start to a great thread.  Thanks.

Amazing painting. I have always liked your painting style from what I have seen on other forums, so it's good you've joined up here as well!  :D

Thanks for your kind words gentlemen, much appreciated!
Today I've returned to my ongoing Stalingrad project and finished the first 6th army Landsers  8). The Russians are nearly finished and it's time they get their fieldgrey adversaries..
But no worries, more D-Day stuff will follow soon!



Cheers
