This is the first section of my second Platoon of the US troops I am painting up. Also painted were the Platoon Sergeant and the Platoon Command stand. I miscounted and need to add another member to the squad so photographed the section leader twice. ( I really like the talk to the hand pose)
The Sergeant is also one of my most favourite figures that Westwind produce but added length to the shirt to make it a jacket. For some reason I keep calling him Sergeant Rock but know its the wrong War.

The Section comprises seven Westwind figures and two from TAG. The Command group are from FOA who are a little bit larger than TAG and much bigger than the Westwind figures. Some of the Westwind figures look like they are meant to be Marines but I'm not going to worry about it.

I thought that this would be a good time to show the Mutt Pencil sharpener which I am thinking of turning into an Armoured version.


Since an influx of spam keeps appearing here I now have to moderate comments. I hope that does not put off genuine commentators. However I still cannot reply to comments for some reason so hope you don't think I am being rude.
