I need to man a US Gunboat/3rd Class Cruiser of the 1890', and would like to have the ship's company in the early version of the Dixie Cup Hat

Old Glory does a landing party for Vera Cruz – but they are carrying rifles. I like to find some figures for deck gun crews, bridge crews, etc

I have used figures in the past from Old Glory's Boxer Range – but would like some different figures more "American" looking

Woo Hoo! I've been looking for some WW2 sailors without guns for some time.

Anyone do them in 15mm?

Roughriderfan, do you have any photos of your gunboat?

Katnmoose: Do you see little 'zzz' by his nick? Tends to suggest he's not been seen in these parts for a long time. ;->=

Scott: Have this naggin' feeling I've seen something apropos, but not coming up with sources. Sorry!

@TheBeast: the "ZZZ" icon shows up if you haven't been on in something like 6 months, so it's possible he will show back up and answer. But you are right, he hasn't been on the boards since 2012.

@ScottWashburn: QRF does a Naval Landing Party in their Spanish-American War sets, plus US Marines.

Otherwise, I think you need to raid the various Boxer Rebellion ranges.

I think I may have been on QRF's site recently, so may have been that 'brain-itch' I had.



Edit: And I know other people have a life, but six months without posting IS a long damn for me. ;->=
