From ChrisP: 15mm WWII American Infantry 104th 'The Timberwolves' (80 points)


From Chris:
Some 15mm US from Battlefront miniatures. Seeing Michael F's Big Red One reminded me just how bad my old US stuff looked. So, I put it all into the Simple Green (paint stripper) and I have decided to repaint it all! 
I have managed to get the first few units done.
We have a Company HQ, comprised of a Company Commander, 2iC and two Bazooka teams. I have chosen to represent the 104th Infantry Division, the Timberwolves, so like Michael has, I have been adding a company patch to their shoulders. Although, my phone camera is maybe a bit too bad to do it!

Next we have a Combat Engineer platoon (see top image), made up of 7 Engineer rifle teams and 4 Bazooka teams. I have used some Battlefront obstacles to remind me that they are engineers, they are clearing an anti-tank obstacle or some such.
Pretty simple paint scheme and basing, but I am really happy with how they came out. I think a comparison between old/new will have to come with the next update....

That is a great redux of an old force - I look forward to the before and after shots.

These Timberwolves will give Chris 80 points.
