Two is Better Than One

Post number two! This time it's my first section of British Infantry. These guys are in MTP, which puts them towards the later parts of Afghanistan, but it also allows them to be used for any ultra-modern, what-if scenarios. They will definitely be fighting the Taliban in Helmand province for the time being, though.

Also, if you guys want ORBAT's along with the minis when I post, just let me know.

But anyway, enough of me rambling, on to the good stuff!

 Full section of eight.

Alpha Team
Bravo Team.

Now on to the single figures.

"I'm ready for my close up, let's take it over here by the trees."

I pretty much followed Dougie's method of painting the figures, but I simplified it as I always do. I am providing you guys with the link to the post on the Skirmish Sangin Blog.

Here is the color template:

  1. Very nice looking figures!
    As an aside, I once knew a Gunnar Lopez at the Academy: might that be you?

  2. If you mean West Point, it is quite possible. Class of 2013?

    1. Yeah! This is Claywell. How have you been buddy? It's been years.

    2. Claywell!? Holy crap man, I have seen you since you left. I'm doing pretty well, living in DC now. How are you?
