Default The Marines Have Landed!

Hi All,

What do think of this for the Marine full squad?

It's very good, except for the fact the kneeling fellow looks like he's grabbing his buddy's kneecap. The fact the other guy is looking down in the that general direction makes it look like he's wondering why. You may want to adjust that arm just a touch, or alter the way the hand is posed.

LOL just doesn't come close... thyat's the hardest I've laughed at a post in quite awhile. You are RIGHT. It looks like the poiint man is just coming out of the gay closet and is buddy is wondering why. Too funny.

What did you think of the background color?

Best,
Mark

My first thought was that he had swung his hand back to chuck a grenade, but now I figure he's signalling something to the rest of the squad. It does look like he's giving his buddy a friendly pat though.

About the color...well this is off the cuff but maybe it's a bit too...blue? I mean you could go all out and put an anchor on it too but...

"NEVER leave me, Chad!"

I like the background color, but a darker shade of the same hue would bring out the foreground figures better.

Hi,

I had thought that a gold globe and anchor might look nice.

Do you all think 2 or 3 firepower would be better?

Best,
Mark

I would have the Marines have the same firepower as reg Army, but be better in a melee. But that's just me and my VCR talking.

The anchor could be cool Or having the figures in a more aggressive fighting stance, maybe.

I'm not sure about the gold globe because uniforms might get lost against it. With proper shading, it might work though. The anchor sounds like a better idea to me.

I think a firepower of 2 is good. 3 is a bit high, considering a 12.7mm cannon team only has 4. Maybe a moral of 6, like the SMCs? Them US Marines are tough SOBs, ya know.

Hi Guys,

Big debate over at Consimworld about this. You might want to join in. Thing was... The Marines had 3 fireteams vice the Army's two per squad. I'm leaning toward three, but we have to playtest it.

By the way. Anyone up for a playtest weekend. I live 45 south of Roanoke. We could all get together for a weekend. The food and beer is on me. There's plenty of room at my house.

Best,
Mark
