I'm not sure why I chose Iraqis, but I had fun anyway.
Aside from the one experimental figure directly below in the fancy new urban camo, the figures are painted in the US designed desert tiger stripe which in my opinion is beautiful, yes I'm a hopeless, unapologetic geek who gets excited about camouflage patterns.

|The desert tiger stripe|
|I love this pose but the picture went fuzzy. Honestly, this helmet is really cool: unfortunately, some of use think this looks normal... I rest my case.|
|The US team supervisor, I believe they did this for a while and are still using this method. hopefully on a level more successful than in Afghanistan...|
|The whole team.|
Gowan, the Soviet Reunion is at hand!!!
This game was held sometime over the last weekend.
On the first day of WW3 a USMC expeditionary force is holding onto a farm near a highway. A highly motivated (read threatened to the edge of their lives if they fail) Russian motor platoon with an accompanying T-72 is ordered to take the farm and proceed to a large highway which naturally is of great strategic value.
|The USMC command and support section on the field. Their HQ is here on the far side of the highway, the farm is about two (real life) feet to the forward.|
|One of three fireteams commissioned to hold the farm area as long as possible.|
|Meanwhile Soviet production quality and planning are epitomized in the breakdown of a T-72 and traffic jam.|
|At the same time, whats left of a LAV-25 platoon rush down the highway to the weak spot.|
|The first Soviet units appear on the horizon.|
|just as the two LAVs enter the AO|
|To make a long story short, the Javelin team takes out the T-72 and the LAVs target the BTRs, their traditional role.|
|One BTR breaks free of the carnage in the field and attacks the fireteam in the farm yard. It is soon flanked and destroyed by one of the LAVs.|
The battered USMC unit is replaced by a Army platoon on day two.
The Soviets are forced to try again. This time the lineup includes three T-72s and another Motor platoon. All is not lost for the Army though, there will be an unpleasant surprise for the Soviet company commander today.
|The T-72s quickly skirt the wooded hill and drive full force on the farm.|
Whoosh!!! A javelin ATGM hits the T-72 sending the turret to shreds!
|The team HQ set up by a fine dragon HMMWV|
|The fury of Russia!!!|
|A smoke barrage slams the highway area.|
|A dramatic shot.|
|Again, to make a somewhat long story short, the US's nasty surprise arrives on the scene, utterly smashing any hope of the second wave of Russian empire building.|
