USA for LCW via NZ - part 2

As mentioned in a post last month (link) I had decided to focus on the seven largely painted figures first.  Following some repair work and some tidying up of paintwork, here they are.
The dynamic poses and light kit suggest that they have just burst forth from their APC/helicopter/Other Ranks Mess.....

I recognise this chap from the Tamiya Vietnam-era 107mm mortar set.

So that was the easy bit.  For the next batch I have to tackle painting US Woodland camo from scratch....

Very smart, hope they have got the same level of malaise as in 'Buffalo Soldiers'... must get my remaining figures painted.

Cheers,

Pete.

Neat. But maybe they are not bursting forth, merely being chased by some girls, or Arabs or muggers...

They're probably still off their faces on the varnish fumes...

Maybe that's why they don't have much kit? I expect the Soviet paras in the next box pinched it all...

They are looking very refreshed Tim. Hardly a pimple among them.

I especially like the fellow on the left in the top and middle picture, it looks like he's bending over to spew while running. I've seen that happen during fire and movement drills. Or maybe it was booze at the Other Ranks mess the night before.
