I traded away a bunch of plastic GW stuff to Nedoreth and the Teenage Visigoth and a pile of goodies arrived from the latter the other day – including some WW2 marines and Japanese and Diggers and Great War Tropical British… it was like Xmas… only waaaaaaaaay better! So of course I painted up the lot that would be the least use to me right now… THE MARINES!
(Remember: click on the pictures for a bigger version)
These Jar-heads hail from Battle Honors. (I think… loose figures received in a trade…)
They’ll certainly see some action against my Japanese Infantry at some point. I got some more Japanese infantry in this lot… unfortunately the look like children next to the ones I already have… well… maybe more like scrawny teenagers… whatever… I ain’t fussy!
This SS flame-thrower guy is definitely from Battle Honors. They were in a Battle Honors package! He’ll be seeing some action on the East Front pretty soon. One of the players in my East Front Campaign was asking if he could have a flame-thrower. I said “no”… but it got me thinking… “Hmmmmmmm… Flame-throwers…”
Be careful what you wish for, because it might just show up in your game… on the OTHER side!! (MWA-HA-HA-Ha-Ha-ha-ha… ha… ha… ha..!).

More Russians and Germans, Likely.
