Marine HMGs

   Got some more brush time in lately. This installment is the HMG platoon for my US Marines. Armed with the M1917 water-cooled .30 caliber machinegun, these bad boys would keep firing as long as you had ammo. Never jammed, which was nice in a jungle when the Japanese were banzai charging you, I imagine.

   I have some new tufts I used in these bases, too. I like them for tall tropical island bushes/grass. Anyway, the project moves forward apace. Which feels good.

   I'm also working on some more 15mm sci-fi guys for the star viking multi-species force and some more 15mm Spanish Civil War, specifically the AT guns and Brixia mortars for infantry support. I'll share photos of the sci-fi progress tomorrow, but it may be a few days before I have the SCW requetes ready for photos.

 Why the delay? Well, I have to go to Austin tomorrow to watch the USA Eagles whup up on Rugby Brasil. So I got that going for me.

Very nice - are they PeterPig figures?

Great looking units...and beautiful bases!

Yes, so far all of my Marines are Peter Pig except for the F4U Corsair and a couple of LVT(4) Amtraks that I have not totally decided I like. They are Battlefront's and they have some problems with the tracks. I am going to order some of the War Dog teams, an assault platoon, some 37mm AT guns, and a few other pieces from Battlefront over the next few months to finish off what I need.

Thanks Phil. I put a little more effort into the bases this time, and I really like how they have been coming out.
