My project, for the time being, will be to build a full strength U.S. Army company. For now I will focus on the actual "man" aspect of it, as I need time to find appropriate 3/4 ton trucks and model jeeps. As I already have the 106mm recoilless rifles from the "Mars," (really, they are low quality conversions illegally using ESCI figs), mujaheddin set.
The guys I have ordered are from Pegasus and ESCI, duh, the only two plastic sets of Vietnam War Americans. THESE FIGURE PICTURES ARE FROM Plastic Soldier Review, JUST TO AVOID STEALING THEIR PICTURES.
|All very nice poses|
|All but the kneeling MG will be used I suppose.|
|OK, one of each dumb pose so these don't hurt too bad.|
|These ESCI guys aren't too bad, I only ordered one set, mainly for the M-60s, and M-79 GLs.|
ALSO FROM PSR
What can I say? All but pose five in row one, and the wounded guy can be useful. Although my unit will represent one after the m-16 was standard issue, I plan to use the carbines and M-14s as S. Vietnamese
According to Eleven-Bravo wargaming site, which is not working for me right now, I need (from my count), about
23 M-79 GLs
3 90mm RR
2 106mm RR
1x 2/12 ton
3x 3/4 ton
and a ton of radios.
I ordered 5 sets of Pegasus and 1 set of ESCI, so I should have
116 useful riflemen
31 useful M-60s
I already have
2 or 3x Caesar WW2 shoulder fired RRs
Plus, there are several other less useful poses in the sets I can use for conversions etc.

Thanks for reading, I will keep you updated.
