These guys are the start of my modern/ultra-modern Skirmish collection and I will most likely play FUBAR among other games with them.
I really like the Rebel minis troopers! I also have PRC troops (by accident, believe it or not), Russian Spetnaz, and Fedayeen and Insurgent troops (who I will paint up as the 'daesh' right after I buy the new Khurasan Kurdish PKK forces!!!)
Painting the ACU was a pain and unfortunately you can't see the fine detail in most of the pictures. I used a piece of spongy foam to make the tan/gray pixels on the US camouflage. The black ink gives them a very dirty, weathered look which I like anyways. Some were dry-brushed with buff afterwards. Some were not. Still have 2 squads and the command group to finish.
|My favorite pic out of all of them!|
|3 US troops on "overwatch" scanning for the enemy. Building is Crescent Root 15mm|
|Building is from the Battlefront Desert Building set.|
|US Javelin gunner preparing to lay the hurt down on some "red force" armor!|
|Red forces - "Name-istan" troops. Generic Middle Eastern Regulars. Iraqi, Iranian, Syrian, Egyptian. You name it! These are from the Khurasan Syrian forces collection.|
That's all for now. Napoleonic French Battalion in the works, followed by more Middle Eastern Regulars, Modern US Troopers, and Cold War US! A most ambitious spring ahead of me!
