1st Squad Done

It's slow going on the figure painting front. However, I'm happy to say that the first squad of my 101st Airborne platoon project is now done.

Here is the machine gun section.

And the rifle section.

I was digging around the internet for some 506 Parachute Infantry Regiment photos (the unit featured in the HBO series, Band of Brothers) and found a number of good ones. Here is a shot of some paratroopers in their C-47 transport heading over the channel the night before D-Day.

The 506th did a lot of fighting in and around Carentan. Here is a shot in the city after its liberation.

One final shot of the rifle section.

'Til next time.


  1. Amazing paint job. And of course you had to put them beside your gorgeous buildings.

  2. Brilliant work on these. And the town just looks absolutely fantastic

  3. Will we be seeing any of those lovely french dames in your game? They appear to have perfect 28mm proportions.

  4. Bob,
