WWII U.S. Marines

Brian and Robert over on Facebook guessed it, so I thought I would give you a little more details.  We are in fact working on a few WWII U.S. Marines.  I'm excited to see the finished product, and I hope that the market can support them in Injection Molded Plastic.... fingers crossed.

My Great Uncle was a rifleman in the 2nd Marine Division, and the stories he told have always stuck with me.  Tinian, Tarawa, Okinawa, and Saipan (He always said Saipan was the worst).

So, here we go with a set meant to give respect to him and the guys that were by his side. 

You can see the work in progress in the post below, but here you can see the direction that I and the sculptor have agreed upon for this pose, and the whole set in general.

Again, this set is a ways off, and our main focus right now is to finally bring the Union Infantry to reality, but as you can see, we are also looking to the future.  If you have any questions, shoot me an email.

I'd say give me a call, but working a full-time job and living with a potty training 3-year-old, I just don't have a lot of time these days to chat on the phone. 

Rock on!

I was hoping the new set would be American Vietnam figures. A little dissapointed but you can never have enough WW2 Marines. I'll buy em.

The guys at FIGARTI did a fine set of Marines in metal for their Khe Sanh series. Maybe they would sell the rights to redo in plastic...?
