Here are some new pictures of my growing force of US troops for the Normandy skirmish campaign. They are 1/32 Conte Collectibles plastics, which are excellent mouldings, painted by me, and based on steel washers. The armour is Forces of Valour which I have repainted and added stowage etc to. The terrain is scratchbuilt by me. Hope you like 'em.

The GI's jackets are the tan coloured bomber style jackets they wore in Normandy before the issue of the green combat jackets. I use Vallejo US Tan as the base colour and then highlighted with a mix of GW Bleached Bone.

Incredible Tim, better than the German pictures (if that's possible!!). Awesome display, those GI's look 1000% times better than the factory painted Conte versions............
