A small unit of well-armed people: US Army Rangers

It seems like ages ago that I announced my intention to convert and paint a complete platoon from the 75th Ranger Regiment. 

After stalling for a long time, I decided to just finish what I had already started, so now I have a reinforced squad of three fireteams and a three man HQ section.

 These are all conversions of Vepa Miniatures' modern US Army series.

 I added silencers, modified the helmets, made radio sets, and carved holographic sights.

Have a good weekend!


  1. Those are really good.

    The bases are excellent too.

    Are the figures 1:72 scale ? Resin or metal ?

  2. Thanks!
    They are 1/72 and cast in lead.

  3. Outstanding work Ben!

    They really pop mate.

    1. Thank you! I was pleased with them, which is a good thing considering they only took me several months to finish!

  4. I wouldn't have it any other way!
    Thanks for looking :D

  5. Very nice figures.
    The camouflage jacket is very well done, bravo!

  6. Thanks!
    Getting a consistent pattern and colors was a challenge, but I'm happy with the result.

  7. Ben you've inspired me to attempt a Caesars plastic conversion (just a simple arm swap but I did pin it with a staple) and I'd have to say I'm very pleased with the results. Thanks for all the inspiration.
