US Marines in the Pacific
These little guys got to the quarter final of the Steve Dean painting competition before getting beaten, and I put together this painting guide a little while back for anyone that's interested. Looking back at them now, I would have added some more colour to the piece, the sage green and ash greys do make for a 'dull' paint job. I had intended to add small empty cartridge cases and a discarded radio but ran out of time at the er, time. When I placed the all elements on the base there wasn't enough room for a scratch built radio, but I could have added the shell cases to give some extra colour.
Nice little figures from The Assault Group, I think they have lots of character, although there was some detail loss/ casting imperfection around the legs of the guy on his knees. Click the image to open it in a larger frame.
