Thanks guys, am not doing nearly as much painting as I want to be ... seem to be endlessly doing pretty well everything else ..but ! :|

..Now back to doing items for website pics ! .. Have had a second request to make up some palm-tree forests terrain too.

And am just about to have a few 'new' projects come to their culmination point ...

I've got an ever-extending wish-list of things to do 'next' .. I guess don't we all ! ... One thing at a time is the way forward !

Finally got something finished !

Here is painted-up US Marine 'M14' Rifle Platoon . Was painting up a 'platoon' for the website "new release" pic.

Hahaha ! Just after completing these guys, a discussion with a wargaming mate convinced me to add a 60mm mortar team to the Platoon pack.
... So's I am now doing up a 60mm mortar team, to complete the 'rifle platoon', while I now paint up a Support Platoon.

Oh ya, there you go! I really encourage manufacturers to set up their packs according to how the unit ran. If you're doing a platoon, make sure you have the support there and not just the riflemen. Marine field setups are notoriously scattershot, but you read often enough about the sorry dogs that had to hump the 90mm RRs, rocket launchers, or drag the 60mm mortars around the field on sweeps that it makes it worthwhile putting them for completeness. And you won't have to worry about setting up a new code or mould just for a support pack, which often get much fewer orders. As they say "if they have it, they will find a use for it..."

Those troops look great Jimmi! can't wait to get them in hand to do dual duty as jarheads and early 173rd!

Hi Darby ,
Yes, I am chuffed the 60mm mortar is 'in' . The intention was for the pack to be a bit 'freestanding'.
I reckon the 60mm mortar proves handy on the tabletop.
The 'HQ' pack is intended as a 'combat support' pack of support attachments to Company-plus level,
minesweepers, M20's, 81mm mortars, sniper team, 106mm RCL, extra medic and wounded, dog team, FO,
plus a tripod .50cal which is always better to have and not need than need and not have.

Hi Jimmi - great Marines! I still have a couple of boxes of Pegasus Marines to paint too. :blowup

Did you make that rocky outcrop in your earlier post? I have been wondering about how to do stuff like that.
