|The hut is from Italeri, it was quite easy to put together. The bamboo tree is from Pegasus and the low bushes are from Gale Force Nine. The mat is from CigarBox. I might give it a little spray!|

|I went for quite a bright green for the camouflage on the helmet. Maybe too bright for some but I quite like it. The old Citadel Goblin Green, a great colour. Washed with Citadel Athenian Camoshade.|

|Squad 1 (Eureka). The squad is made up of a LMG team with 3 crew and 9 riflemen as well as a Corporal. I need to get some 1/72 Japanese banners from somewhere.|

|The Warmodelling Japanese were much better quality than their USMC counterparts. They are quite similarly equipped but the WM are a little bulkier. I do like both but favour the Eureka.|
|I did like the WM LMG better so used him in the Eureka team.|

Great work John - more Pacific WW2 goodness. It's neat to see these figures from Eureka - I had no idea they even offered them. I find Eureka has so many wonderful figures, but their kafka-esque web site often makes it impossible to find them, or even figure out they are there in the first place. Also good to see the Warmodelling sculpts improved for the Japanese. And the lighter green is excellent for the camouflage - I take the same approach. Sometimes having the colour "pop" oddly reinforces its camouflage purpose.
That terrain is looking really sharp too - well done! That is another 112 points for you...
