Here my finished WGF plastic Rangers:

The rifle slings are Plasticard and most of the kit is from Warlord/Bolt Action.

Not a WWII gamer, but had to comment - they are exceptionally good! :o

This is great work, and the best I've seen done with Wargames Factory's WWII stuff!

I really like the idea of a paratrooper as an objective marker for a Ranger force.

Good show all round.

Wow! First of all... cracking paintjob. Really nice.

What really astonished me is the quality of the miniatures. WF finally created something that suprised me in a positive way. Nice!

You mention that most of the kit is by Warlord. Does that include weapons or what exactly did you replace from the kit these figures come with? I can see at least the bazooka is not part of the WF box.

Thanks for your comments gentlemen!

@grendal
Uniform GW Zandri Dust
Webbing and kit Karak Stone
Helmet Vallejo Brown Violet
Trousers (pants) Brown Violet/ Iraqi Sand

@Remington
Weapons are WGF other than the Bazooka
All backpacks, most ammo pouches and entrenching tools and some arms are BA.

All figure have some little conversions to make them look less 'stiff'.
The WW2 Americans are imho still their best release yet and together with some Warlord GI bits they've turned out to be a nice little outfit indeed.
The uniform jacket is still too long though.
But I might convert my other box all into 101st Airborne ;-)

Cheers
