Next in line for my fourth post in as many days, my 15mm Peter Pig Modern Marines for the desert, wearing their distinctive Marine Pattern camouflage and Coyote Brown body armor and gear. These are also 23 figures, so as to match up with their temperate and arctic counterparts. Let’s take a look.
The whole force, once again four five-man teams and a three-man command element of platoon commander, radioman, and Corpsman. Rather than four five-man teams, I’d rather have gone six -four man teams, but I didn’t have enough SAWs and M-203s…
Well, thus concludes another blogpost here at blackhawkhet, I hope you enjoyed it. I’m pretty happy with the camo; it’s not perfect, but overall it turned out pretty well, and it looks good on the table.

Right now there’s nothing else to talk about for Vietnam, still a lot of work to do. I’ve got a few odds and ends to finish here (troops and vehicles), I’ve got more gear (troops, vehicles, and terrain) on the way, I’ve got to finish the other seven terrain tiles, and I need to write up the ten scenarios. Sorry, but it’s gonna be awhile.
