I paint mostly 20mm figs and wargame IABSM meaning sections of 8-10 men. From a gaming/painting perspective, I know that USA para obviously look different from regular infantry. Did Glider infantry have unique uniforms? Can I get away with simply using regular GIs and saying they look like Glider Infantry?

Thanks, Dan

At the time of D Day the glider infantry were dressed as line infantry. As time passed they seemed to dress more like airborne troops.

I just use regular GIs as glider troops.
