Another Royal Marine almost finished. I've decided to stick with the shirt sleeve order for the WW2 troop. Some parts have been salvaged from the donor figure but I've also grafted a couple of minor details with green-stuff.
Nearly completed the line units now, and am beginning to think about the weapons platoon which ideally will include a prone Bren gunner and loader of some description, but I'd really like to do something quite different for this pair so it may take some more time and thought.

As you can see there is still a bit to be done on these. The officer figure will lose his base to keep the height consistent with the others. Eventually, I'd like to have two complete companies of RMC, for WW2, totalling sixteen figures.
The last couple of pictures show the work in progress on the French 75s which will certainly see use in several theatres of both wars.

Some of the gunners will end up in crews for WW2, as engineers, as cavalry, and some will lose their heads.

This figure is from the Revell ANZAC set which was given to me by Paul from Plastic Warriors Blog. I have used green-stuff to tidy up some areas, but no other custom additions as yet.

As with all buildings in the rules I use, it actually represents an urban area rather than just a single structure, and can therefore house an entire company of between three and five platoons, depending on the forces being used.Last one shows a view of the interior with 2nd floor platforms added. This one and several other buildings are earmarked for repainting in the not too distant future.

My mutants were heavily out-gunned but managed to win the second game quite convincingly.
Last picture is of the sump we were fighting over.

234/3 with the 75L24. No idea what brand it is, this is the only one of these I have.234/4s' equipped with the 75L46. I'm fairly certain these are Airfix kits which I've had for a very long time, and were among my earliest purchases when getting started in this hobby.

The full company. The paint work doesn't match up, and I may yet repaint these and many of my other vehicles, as I am considering using spray paint henceforth.
These are my only two kits of the late-war Hetzer. I got both of them in various states of disrepair from an online auction, and cleaned them up as best I could.

Gun crew and engineer platoon, with the usual mix of figures where possible. I have been experimenting with green stuff to try and make weapons slings, but their really not working out that flash.
