From ReneV: 28mm WWII American Infantry Platoon & Sherman Tank (172 points)


From Rene:
I have outdone myself with yet another entry. This time the Infantry Platoon component of my US forces for Chain of Command.
The figures are a mix but mainly Wargames Factory plastics with the addition of a Renegade model. Sherman support option is from Warlord.


All in all a mediocre paintjob and I must admit that the pictures are taken a bit too close for comfort. They do look better in real life when viewed from playing distance.
The way I have painted these are not what you would call advertisement quality, but decent gaming quality which at the moment is enough for me so I can get troops on the table and play a game.
All in all they are a medic, a 3-man engineer team and Adjudant (more a game marker than a figure on the table hence the GW base) together with a Sherman M4 (75mm gun) and a large part of an infantry platoon.

I think you're being too hard on yourself Rene as these look very good. The infantry's uniforms look spot on and I particularly like the weathering on the Sherman. 

This platoon with it's armoured support will give Rene 172 points. Great job!

  1. I think you've down a good job on these Rene. As Curt says, don't be so hard on yourself.

  2. Those look very good. The tank is very nice too! I may have to try out the WF WW2 plastics and see how they compare with my warlord ones. The weapons look really good and I like your engineer team!

    I agree with Curt's comments- and looking good on the table is the best standard to apply to war-games figures that are to be played with.
    Cheers, PD

  4. Nice tidy force there Rene. The Wargames Factory plastics are better than I thought they would be in terms of poses and scale.

  7. I also fancy a spot of ww2 wargaming myself. As i am American i play the Americans, my brother plays the Germans, and all with my home made rule set. i also use single bases, and not the whole "three man rifle squad" thing. all my men have individual bases. would you recomend it? spot on job mate, if i don't say so myself
