I did mention in my intro post this morning that today's flight would be joined by our heroic(ally insane) Captain.
Curt did ask me to hold off on posting this until later, so that other entries could take priority. However, as my brush-slaves seem to be holding out until the last minute to submit their draft posts, I'm posting it now while it's quiet...
These five frogmen depict members of the Spezialisierte Einsatzkräfte Marine (SEK M) a German special forces unit which focuses on maritime operations.
The 28mm figures are from Lead Adventure Miniatures. They're bit off-the-beaten-path, but I thought they would be fun to do. While the sculpts themselves are fantastic, the only thing I find a bit odd about them is how they're armed. I believe units of this type are typically utilized for close-in assaults, ship-boarding, hostage rescues, stuff like that, so I think it would more likely that they would be armed with compact MP5 SMGs, or shortened HK416s, rather than the relatively hulking G36 seen here. Who knows, perhaps they are landing on some foreign shore where they may have to stand-off at medium range.
Excellent work Curt. I particularly like the water effect on the bases - you can almost hear the waves gently lapping the seashore. Great work on the black frogsuits and on the goggles.
