US Paratrooper Snipers

Gradually I'm building an Arnhem army for Flames of War games. The XXX Corps tanks are in place, there are a few 82nd kicking about under a bed somewhere and now here are some snipers to help pin back any German counter attack. Next up field artillery.

Tiny Tigers

Ok they're 15mm so not that small but definitely midget like compared with the Warlord one finished a month or so ago. This was another airbrush experiment and as with all of these so far the result was not as intended. The reflective green pigment in particular isn't strong. Still they'll probably look fine enough on a table at a distance.

These are Plastic Soldier Company miniatures. I usually find these a bit smaller than their Battlefront compatriots but unlike the T 34s, STuGS and Shermans I don't have an equivalent Battlefront model to compare these with. So for my home battlefields at least this is the size Tigers are!

101st Test Pieces

Deploying swiftly to the aid of Jean and his comely comrade two Bolt Action U.S. paratroopers. As is ever the way with my collecting I have a horde of these waiting for some primer and paint. Maybe one day these two will be reinforced!
