Tony Reidy from Defiance Games kindly sent me a couple of test sprues (4 minis with lots of options) of his SciFi US Marines the other day. Well a few months ago actually... Since I am not really into Science Fiction too much I put them aside for a while. (To be honest I wasn't particularly thrilled by the sculpts and the helmets looked a little daft to me.) Anyways, today I finally gave them a go and I tried several head alternatives ending up with a Warlord WWII US plastic head. It was screaming 'Colonial Marines'!
Three more are on the workbench I might actually try to source some more Defiant marines to build a 8-10 men squad. And I still got this Tyranids army that has never been built, too. Hmmm..
There can be no doubt that the success of the attack on and stand against the enemy at St. Lambert sur Dives can largely be attributed to this officer’s coolness ... London Gazette, no.36812, 27 November 1944
