B Company, 1st Battalion, 7th Cavalry

The rest of B Company from the 1st Battalion, 7th Cavalry in the famous Battle of Landing Zone X-Ray.  These guys are Command Decision Miniatures and are fairly easy to paint.

A couple things will restate that I dislike about them:  They are wearing Marine Kit even though they are advertised as Army.  Also not a huge variety of poses either, but they will def do.

I like how their bases turned out to look like mud with the obligatory ant hills!  These guys are based for a number of different rules sets to include Vietnam Crossfire and Cold War Commander.  I am planning on playing a large Cold War Commander LZ X Ray battle sometime soon....  Currently I have 1 Battalion of NVA complete, and 1 US Aero Rifle Company complete!  2 NVA Regular Battalions to go and 2.5 US Companies to go.
That NCO is yelling "quit talkin' and start shootin!"

Bases look outstanding!  The troops...not quite as much so.


Tomorrow I will post their infamous enemy...the venerable People's 33d Infantry Regiment!!!


  1. Very good paint paint job. I look forward to seeing some Battle Reports for the LZ Xray Battle.

    1. Thanks, Austin. I have to quit making excuses and just push on with the 33rd NVA Regiment. Once done, you'll have your battle reports!!

    1. Thanks, Gowan, just wait until you see them on the table with all of the foliage and extras. They'll look even better. Just toss aside the fact that I'll be using paper helicopters and jets...

  3. Great work Steven, roll on the NVA!
