Found a little time during the week to finish the support units for my first re-worked para battalion. Based for CD3, most figures have had at least a head-swap. Over the summer holidays I plan to finish two more battalions plus a few extras to complete the regiment
Recon SMG and battalion HQ stands
Ammo porter platoon
Support company command stand. For some reason the red I used for their berets turned out a bit brighter than the last lot, so I might try and dull them down a bit at a later date
3" mortar platoon, back
The full support company: HQ, mortar, MMG, Engineer and PIAT stands. The entire battalion includes figures from Esci, Revell, Airfix, HaT and a couple of Hong Kong copies.
Talking to Dave earlier this evening, reminded me of a couple of pictures I took of his work in progress, last time I visited. These figures will form a US Ranger battalion for CD3, in game terms they have similar abilities to Royal Marines- note I said similar:)
Nicely detailed figures from Italieri
Keep you posted with any progress he makes; that's a hint for you to get busy Dave!
