US assault landing teams

Post by Richard B. »

Bought two packs from Tony at Raventhorpe by mistake - D`oh! :oops:

Read "LCVP boat teams" as naval crew, when in fact they are assault infantry boat teams - D`oh!

Anyway 30 figs all together, I decided to paint them up anyway as regular leg infantry and a bunker assault platoon -

I think that is a wargaming Freudian slip. You subconsciously wanted them anyway and you fooled yourself into ordering them. :-)
Very nice.

Sounds like the problem to me :lol: :lol: :lol:
What's the point of doing one period, when you can do them all.......... In life most people specialise so gradually they know more and more about less and less so eventually they know everything about nothing. I work on a broad front so eventually I'll know nothing about everything.

The mix of kit is interesting - satchel charges, bangalors, pole charge - even a guy carrying a jerry can of fuel :lol:

The moving .30 cal and mortar teams are also nicely done :D
