All,

Ahh, finally stepping away from paratroopers for a bit, mixing in some good, old-fashioned U.S. dogfaces for a change, based for temperate climates such as Normandy, Dragoon, the pursuit across France, etc… And not just foot troops, I've got some armor and other stuff to show ya, too!

This force is about a 50/50 mix of stuff I bought and stuff I painted myself. Most of the really good looking stuff came from my buddy AJ, while the landing craft are very nicely done and came from a gentleman on Ebay. The rest is stuff I bought from another gentleman on Ebay at a very large discount; it was painted to a decent wargaming standard, but it didn't match the stuff I got from AJ, so I spray-painted over it and went to work trying to make it look like AJ's stuff.

The entire force, consisting of:
-A Commanding Officer
-An Executive Officer (XO)
-Five Rifle Platoons (three squads, a Platoon Commander -PC-, and a bazooka team)
-An MG Platoon (three MGs and a PC)
-A Mortar Platoon (three tubes and a PC)
-A light ATG Platoon (two M1 57mm guns and a PC)
-A heavy ATG Platoon (two M5 3" guns)
-An Artillery Platoon (two M1 105mm howitzers and an FO)
-An Anti-Aircraft Platoon (one quad-.50 cal HMG and one 37mm Bofors)

I also have some armor and landing craft to add to my already decent-sized collection of US armor:
-Another M3 Lee (I already have five)
-Two more M3 Gun Motor Carriages (GMCs) (I already had two)
-Three M5 Stuarts
-Three M8 GMCs
-Three Landing Craft Vehicle-Personnel (LCVPs)
-One Landing Craft Tank (LCT)
-A knocked out Sherman
-A knocked out Stuart

I really like the landing craft with troops. That is cool.

Jack,
This is my pick of the litter of the last three. Maybe it
is on account of all the variety of armor and OMG those magnificent
landing craft. Can't believe they even have troops and gunners. Strength wise, this is going to be one tough
unit to beat. Still liked the FJ and the red berets of
the Brit paras. Yeppers, you been busy. Almost forgot,
the artillery and AAA are great too. Don't want to take
anything away from the US airborne unit, but you well
know the good natured rivalry between "us and them". ;-)

Great work,

Sam

Nice work.

Now you're going to have to build some 1/100 planes to go with them. grin

Thanks guys, and yes, I love those LCVPs, they're too cool.

And YA, I don't think I'll get any C-47s, but I have been looking at purchasing some 1/100 gliders from Gaming Models.

Don't worry Sam, there are more 'legs' and more paratroopers on the way, I'm about halfway finished posting ;)

V/R,
Jack
