    This thread is in answer to many questions and in an effort to simplify I’ve started this thread.

    The U.S. Marine “grunts” and U.S. Marine Raiders are based on the Marines w/Thompson m.g.'s from HBG’s U.S. Marines Set.

    The U.S. ParaMarine Raiders, also known as “Chutes”, are based on the Paratroopers from HBG’s U.S. Supplement Set.

    Questions and/or comments are requested. I hope you enjoy.

    WOW!!!  They look AMAZING!!  Thank you for sharing!

    ….now if only my set looked like that.

    Thanks Jeremy,

    Although I’ve never met or spoken with you I’ve heard your name here on this wonderful forum for quite a while. I trust it’s OK to use it.

    I couldn’t agree more concerning “Allworkandnoclay’s” painting talent. His work is simply Awesome.

    I have many, many ideas that I want to implement as Allwork’s time allows(and if I don’t go bankrupt, haha).

    I’d like to express a big THANK YOU towards you and FMG for all of your efforts in bringing all of us some wonderful new units for our gaming enjoyment. Keep the faith and fight the good fight for all of us.

    By the way, the next units to be painted are your FMG Italian Infantry. They’re almost done. I’ll let you know.

    Some excellent works of art you have Paul!  Must look grand in a gaming session.


  • Customizer

    Why thank you, “V”. I appreciate that. But there are a lot of A&A painters(such as yourself) with “works of art” as you say. I haven’t been very active here on A&A.org for a while and noticed that there were some new “areas”. Always good to hear from you, “V”.

    Guys,

    ––I recently received several U.S. Marine Stuart light and Sherman medium tanks that Will has modified/detailed and Lucas painted/decalled. I think that they both did a Great Job! Until I can find some time to take some additional pics myself,….I’ll share some that Lucas took.
    ----Let’s start out with the USMC Stuarts. Notice the blackish-green camo stripes on the overall o.d. green:

    Guys,

    ––Here’s another pic of the “Flamethrower” Shermans that Lucas took. This angle shows the 48-star flags on the rear decks used for national identity purposes well.

    Guys,

    ––Here are some pics of my F-4F Wildcats in three(3) different paint schemes:
    1.) U.S. Navy, early-war with red/white rudder stripes and red “dots” in the stars and white #s.
    2.) U.S. Navy, intermediate, with white #s.
    3.) U.S. Marine Corps, with black #s.
    ––The units themselves are from the A&A-Guadalcanal game and as although they are listed as “Hellcats”, I’m using them as “Wildcats” since they look much more like an F-4F than an F-6F. I will be buying my Hellcats from
    Field Marshal Games whenever they’re able to produce them. I remember seeing their excellent F-6F Hellcat sculpt a year or so ago.

    ––Lucas took these first pics as well as painting/decalling them. I think he did an Excellent Job! Enjoy.

    Damn, all these pics are amazing.

    Jluna and Others,

    @jluna1273:

    Damn, all these pics are amazing.

    ––Thanks for your compliment and let me add that I couldn’t agree more!  😄
    ----Let me say right now, that ALL of the talent that went into painting and decalling these U.S. Navy / Marine aircraft belongs to Lucas Hoffman, a.k.a. “LHoffman” here on A&A.Org. I think he does an exceptional job, myself. Usually about half of the units you’ll see our ‘gang’ complete will have been modified/detailed by Wil Tan before Lucas gets them for painting.
    ––My contribution to this huge project is to determine the units and paint schemes that I want, buy all of the supplies, etc., and then try to not go crazy with anticipation as they are shipped/modified/detailed/shipped/painted/decalled/and then shipped again. The “not going crazy” part is fairly difficult, at least for me, haha.  😄
    ----Our ‘gang’,…the**“WarMachine Team”**, has 3 (three) extremely talented guys working on the units themselves, just reference message #1 of this thread for more info.

    Guys,

    ––Here’s another pic that Lucas used as a reference in painting the Wildcats.

    Guys,

    ––All of the previous posts have dealt with Wildcats painted in the “U.S. Navy-early” scheme.
    ----Here are some pics of Wildcats in the “U.S. Navy-intermediate” scheme and “U.S. Marine Corps-Guadalcanal” scheme. These pics were also taken by Lucas.

    “Tall Paul”

    ----Hmmm, sorry guys. The site says my pics have the wrong type of file extension to be posted. I’ll get it figured out and post them soon. They are pics of Carriers, Battleships, Navy and Marine Wildcats all on the game board at Guadalcanal.


  • Customizer

    Pure awesome.  Heyo Tall - glad to see things are rolling.  I’m mobile at the moment so haven’t been able to do any painting…


  • Customizer

    V.I.P.-“V”,

    ––It’s always great to hear from you, and thanks for the compliments. The talents these guys prove with every unit certainly deserve the plaudits. And yes, I too am glad that we’re back to work producing some more stuff after a temporary intrusion of some of those 4-letter words,…like life, work, wife, etc.  😄

    ----“V”, I’ll catch up with you a little later, my friend.

    “Tall Paul”
