I bought the Ranger box even though it has the same sprues as the regular infantry box because it has some additional pewter heads and equipment so I can create some variety. I also received a small package from Offensive Miniatures to fill out a couple of holes in my US Airborne troops. I really wish manufacturers would look at the actual weapon types that typical squad carries rather than go with the Hollywood version. I could field an entire squad of US Airborne troops with Thompson sub-machine guns and still have extras from Offensive Miniatures. I have started to update the lists on the blog with what I have added and what I'm working on now.
The new stuff on the shelf:
|There must be a ton of old VHS boxes in the UK. All my orders from Offensive Miniatures have come in one.|
|Two .30 cal MGs and two snipers|
|Three more Garands, three Carbines and two more Thompsons!|
|I have this pack already so I guess I can make some kind of little vignette with it.|
|I ordered a .50 cal MG and a .30 cal MG but I need another .30 cal MG so they can masquerade as a Armored Infantry platoon.|
