US Heavy Weapons Platoon

Hello All

So my third platoon for Colours 2013 painting challenge is now behind me, I went for a smaller platoon so I ended up doing a Heavy Weapons Platoon.
I mostly used the same painting style as I used on the infantry, but I did try out a few new things (mainly on the scarfs and gloves). I'm not 100% happy with the results and I won't be doing this on any of the other infantry.
This platoon gives me a lot of options within the list. I think most of the time it'll be combat attached out to the two infantry platoons to give them 5 bazookas each and 2 HMG's each. But I have also thought about the idea that when defending against infantry of only attaching out the Bazookas and using the HMG's as my ambush platoon.
Normally I would worry about the idea if the infantry had any tank support but with two platoons of Tank Destroyers in the list I have the possibility of 3 ambushes in one turn, 2 that will focus on tanks and the HMG's to focus on the infantry.
So three platoons down 6 more to go, and 31 days left as I write this...... better get my paint on! Next up some Heavy Artillery.

As always thanks for reading and until next time



  1. Very nice looking units...and pictures!

  2. Nice pictures of very well painted miniatures!

  3. I like your large tufts of dried grass, it does indeed look like the tundra in winter.

  4. Thanks for the kind words guys.

    Finished the next platoon today to hopefully they'll be posted up soon, also only 5 platoons left, starting to feel like I can get this done on time.

    Thanks Ben
