Another member of the USMC Recon squad by Empress miniatures. Armed with an M14 if I am not mistaken.
A few month back Empress miniatures released a 6 figure USMC Recon pack. I just started painting these. I thought it might be difficult to paint the camouflage uniform, but i think i found a way to paint it quite easily and quickly. It took me about 1 hour to finish this miniature.
The Marine is armed with an M16 and a sawn of shotgun.
I painted the uniform like I do all my marines. You can see the stages here.
After that I used Vallejo sky grey again to ad the camp stripes:
Then I added dark brown ( Snakebite leather ) and bright green ( Warp lightning) on the sky grey patches.
The rest was done as in above mentioned link described. Now just the the missing 5 figures to do.
Here are a few group shots of the last US Marines I finished.
Here is a RPG gunner for my NVA force. Nice is that he has a secondary arm sculpted on . This helps with the rules I play ( Danger Close Version 2). You can read more about the rules here.
As you can see here the model has a big pack of rocket grenades on the back. He really looks the business.
