Battle For Skira: USMC test figure, Marine with AT-4

Basicly this 20mm Stan Johannsen modern Marine with AT-4 was painted just to test the colours for woodland MarPat once again. Sure, there is probably a better way to paint it, but to me it looks alright and from distance the camo seems to be appropriate. It's going to blend in quite nicely on a woodland gaming table. Now it only needs to get a bit warmer outside so I can use my black undercoat spray can for more miniatures.

This figure looks just right! I know just how hard it is to paint cammo in this scale, well done sir.

your a bad bad man ;)

I've been a follower of ambush alley for a while but the conversions that your doing recently are fantastic!

I suppose I'll have to get my hands on a copy of this rule set once it comes out via osprey

job well done sir!

Hi mate.

I've a question about Skira. Is it Skira like Skira Island from Operation Flashpoint Dragon Rising, or is this just Skira (similar name)?
If you base it on a game, then please let me know by emailing me - thomaswargames[at]gmail[dot]com

I'm big fan of Flashpoint, and might have some interesting idea of using some conceptions from game in wargaming. More details on email if I'm right ;)

Tomasz, it is based upon the plot of the game. I have all maps and forces in a "walk through" guide, so for scenarios there will be plenty of material. I will only base smaller parts of my games on the original maps and forces though, as it would require too many units and terrain.

Sarge, I was thinking about exchange some ideas, but if you have all prepared - that's fine :)
