Mike Owen of Artizan Design is adding to his WW2 US Infantry range. The latest figures are for later war units, 1944 onwards.

These are nice figures, as usual.

It seems to me that there is a glut of late war Americans on the market. We really need early war figures for Singapore, the Philippines, Wake Island, etc.

I agree with surdu2005.

I have some of what I think are older Cobblestone miniatures. US Marines which I use for Interwar, and or early WW2 (before Guadalcanal) with older WW1 stile helmuts, and campaign hats (smokey the bear style). They have rifles, older style Thompson SMGs, shotguns, bolt action rifles, a few BAR, and Lewis guns, with an older watercooled HMG on tripod. I can't seem to load a picture right now. You could probably paint some with blue dungerees, and white leggings for sailors if you were so inclined. Mine are all painted older Khaki uniform colors.
You may see them at Hurricon in September, if you're there, for a game I am running set in China.

SGT Yuengling, I think those are from Bob Murch's Pulp Figures range of Americans. He did an range for "Sand Pebbles" type scenarios.

Nice. I need some more figures to use with my ones in greatcoats, although a few scarves added with green stuff might be needed.

Thanks, I wasn't sure. They are very nice for early war Marines for what Surdu2005 had mentioned.

I have those figures, SGT Yeungling. There really are only two packs in that line with the tin hats that will work. I would like to see a little more variety and additional subjects, like Philippine Scouts, an AT gun and crew, cavalry, naval shore personnel, etc.
