'The yanks are coming'

Some time ago I posted this picture.. a box with a range of 20mm US equipment that my son Nick had accumulated in preparation for a US army for Rapid Fire. Our interest in that rules set waned after a decade of play, and Nick moved on to Ancients and HotT. The figures stayed with me. The success Nick G and I found in playing Spearhead in 20mm has meant that i have renovated Russian, British and German armies over the past two years, and now it's the turn of the Americans.

Tonight I finished basing the infantry, three battalions worth.

I also gave the figures a wash with Citadel 'Nuln Oil' to give the figures a little more depth. I think that Nick did a pretty reasonable paint job so there seemed to be no need to do any repainting.

The mortars and HMG didn't really need rebasing, so there's a regiment ready for the table.


  1. I love all your army collections. Just such great stuff!

  2. They have turned out really well! i am a big fan of the GW washes as they can really make a paint job pop.
