Well, Saturday was too busy to get anything done, and the time I had Sunday I spent painting instead of playing. I recently finally made a purchase of 15mm Peter Pig Modern USMC after online stalking them for over a year. As I've been very much into skirmish gaming lately, I bought enough of these little Piggy troops to make up four different skirmish forces of about a platoon each. They were easy to clean up and mount, so I primed them and painted up four test figures, one for each force, as each force will be in different uniform for different clime and/or era.
Here are the photos, I'd love to hear what you think.
Here's some closeups of each guy. I picked four guys out, but screwed up; I wanted to have all four guys in the same pose, but I did three of one pose and one of another. Having said that, they're all basic riflemen with M-16A4s (though I'll pass them off for M-16A2s for the Desert tri-color force).
Anyway, I used Khaki and Sand with Italian Dark Brown spots for the uniform, Dark Tan for the vest and gear, and Wood for the boots, goggles, and gloves.
Like I said, truly minor quibbles; I actually carved the SAW drum off and just painted those AT-4 guys up as riflemen, and the left-side holster doesn't draw any undue attention.
That's all for now, we'll see what this week brings, and then I'm out of town on business for the following two weeks. Please let me know what you think of these guys.
