Yet more Yanks

More Yanks

About another weeks work.

Drivers and gun crew 
Mostly SHQ for vehicles already in Spain

Three Jeeps
We noticed during our last couple of NWE games most of my vehicles have crews, this looked a little odd when a static in HQs, etc, so I decided to paint a couple of Jeeps up sans crew
L-R old Skytrex, Fujimi, Matchbox
Yet another Matchbox M16 chassis (the last one  :D ) Totally rebuilt and repaired, new wheels, new armoured screen plus loads of random stowage; made to look like a troop transport 
Plastic driver, Raventhorpe .50cal gunner, seated figures by Britannia 

M3 lt tank
Built from the left-over parts of the PSC Honey spur
I fudged some of missing bits with plasticard and plasterscene, the 37mm barrel came off a Pak36

US medical teams
Blanket/stretcher team by Andy Grubb
Medic and casualty by Andy Grubb
Medics with casualty by Raventhorpe
Various infantry the ones in greatcoat are all Britannia, the rest Friend or Foe


  1. Nice work there Richard- a mixed bag of figures and vehicles but they'll fill out your collection nicely.



    1. Cheers Pete, i chose SHQ gunners and drivers because I knew they were small and should therefore fit into most vehicles (can`t do that with some ranges........). The foot figures in greatcoat were new to me, never seen those before, nice too. The medics and casualties are part of a general upgrade.

  2. love the blood bag medic guy. very cool.

    1. Thanks, I added the tube and propped the casualty up on a pack. the attending medic is separate, so can be used elsewhere is required :)

  3. Like these boys
    They are full of character
