US Infantry

Here we have 39 US Army soldiers painted in just under a week. Obviously speed painted and dipped but I think they look OK. I needed to get these done for an Italy 1943 camapign that my friend Tim and I will be starting soon. I really only need the weapon teams but I figured I might as well paint them all while I have the paint out.

This first group is the contents of the Crusader miniatures US Army box set. Twenty-four figures that i will use to fill out my platoon HQs and create a Company HQ.

Next is the .30 cal LMG teams.

And finally we have the 60mm mortar teams. With these done I now have almost a full strength US Infantry company - about 130 figures. All the figures are from Crusader and are very easy to paint. They are a great deal from Crusader Miniatures USA and if you are a memeber of the Old Glory Army you get an additional 40% off!

These figures are available from Crusader USA - http://crusaderminiaturesusa.com/index.php

They are manufactured in the US by Old Glory.

(Please don't look down on me for just indulging in GW - I simply haven't the disposable income to branch out at the moment!)

Admiral Drax,

These can be used for several different WW2 games. I am using them for my own rules that are inspired by 40K and Lord of the Rings.

No need to feel bad about liking GW here.
