Sorry to hear about your financial troubles Ed, but I sure like what you've done with your 2 squads.

Every now and then I decide to do something with just the parts I have on hand, but then I get into it and end up buying more stuff.

Looking forward to seeing your good guys next.

Hey Ed, good to see your fallys again. The infantry platoon looks good too.

I've got about a platoons worth of russians, about 15 fallys, about 15 brit paras. An uncounted number of standard germans and americans, both probably in the 15 range.

We could all have worse and more expensive hobbies that this.....

They'll be on the way soon! I think I've finished up my FJ platoon. I reckon I'm still a few short for a regulation platoon, but I ran out of FJ boots. I may do one guy with mountain boots and maybe an overcoat. But, I'm pretty sure that by December of 1944 there were lots of German units that were a little short-handed!

For completed Good Guys, I have a full squad plus an officer. I think I'll be pulling them out of moth balls next. I doubt I'll really finish up a full US platoon any time soon, especially as US platoons were larger than German ones, having 3 squads of 12 instead of 3 squads of 9. That's 24 more figures to build! (Holy cow, what have I gotten myself into? Not to mention my unfinished US anti-tank gun!)

Simply fantastic Ed!

I'm of the same mind set - but I try to build squads though and not platoons... You've done an amazing job on these late war platoons though!

They deserve a chance to get out for a photo shoot - I agree completely with that! If I was in Minnesota I'd definitely try and arrange a photo shoot with you and your troops. I've got a squad or two of Soviets they can beat up on for sure!

Nice work!

Fred
