Some of the pics I found are conflicting as to whether the Rangers wore the famous "chocolate chip" kevlar helmet covers. Many of the personal snapshots that are available online show the now-famous 3 Color DCU. However I wanted an excuse to paint choco-chip camo so I went ahead and did it. Since there isn't much chocolate chip, I'll try and use these guys for my Afghan and Iraq actions as well.
He turned out out OK so I'm going to paint up a few squads of his buddies and game some parts of the battle. Next up - Delta Force. Can I do these legendary warriors justice? We'll see.

|The helmet turned out awesome!|
|Random "technical" in the background. Gonna make a recoiless rifle out of a pen...|
