Send three and fourpence ...

Some further Funny Little Wars recruits arrived in this morning's post (the first of several tranches I hope to receive this week!) and they have joined the ranks of my US Marines.


I now have 22 US Marines ... which is enough figures to form a full-size Funny Little Wars Battalion/Regiment (the two terms are interchangeable in Funny Little Wars) or a small two-Battalion/Regiment-strong Brigade for half-size Funny Little Wars battles.


I have several more 'units' on order, including some Black Watch and Seaforth Highlanders (the latter being in campaign rather than parade dress), members of an English Line Infantry Regiment (the Yorks and Lancs), and some Guards (Welsh Guards to be precise).

Rest assured, as and when they arrive, they will be featured on a blog entry.

  1. They look wonderful man! I always find that the US Marines No. 1 Uniform looking really smart and awesome!

  2. Jiaqi Lim,

    It is a very smart uniform (and very nice figures) ... although I do prefer the full-dress uniform worn by the UK's Guards regiments.

    All the best,

    Bob

  3. That is indeed another epic choice for best full-dress uniforms.

  4. Jiaqi Lim,

    The full-dress Guards uniform is not the easiest uniform to wear. In particular, the bearskin, which can become very heavy when wet and has a tendency to move/tilt if it is not a good fit.

    All the best,

    Bob

  5. All things that glimmer in gold, don't always seem to be really comfortable. But I get your point ;)

    Nevertheless, Great paintjob on these guys and the Full dress UK Guards!

  6. Jiaqi Lim,

    Ceremonial uniform is often very uncomfortable to wear, but like the paint jobs on the figures, it can look very impressive!

    All the best,

    Bob
