Next up, Lt. Winters gets a Radio Operator, to keep in touch with Command. I had to replace the barrel on the Carbine, as it was about ready to break off anyway. A bit of fine brass wire, and a bit of Super Glue to mock up a muzzle, and we're done. Also added a nylon paint brush bristle for the radio antenna!
And just to recap, here's a "group shot" for this round - 12 models for a grand total of 60 pts.
You did a cracking job on these Kevin! I think you really nailed the colour tone for the uniforms on these American paratroopers - very clean paintwork and great contrasts which makes them 'pop' in the photos.
That Lt. Winters figure is an amazing sculpt (Hicks' skills in capturing the face of Lewis is astonishing) and you've done him great justice. Too bad about about their choice to go with the dog-tag base - pretty schmaltzy if you ask me.
I like the last shot of your force-to-date. What are you thinking of painting for opponents? Fallshirmjaegers? Garden variety Heer troops?
Again, great work Kevin!
