Completed a platoon of heavy infantry from Pig Iron

Some months back, I discovered Pig Iron and their terrific line of science fiction figures and vehicles.  I had planned to build a platoon of these figures once the first few arrived and I painted them.  THEN, Pig Iron announced they were going out of business.  I ordered a bunch of their figures, only to find out that they were out of stock of many of those I needed and would not be producing more.  THEN, Pig Iron announced that they were being sold and that the figures would be available again.  They were made available again about two months ago.   I finished the last ten figures this evening and completed my platoon.

I have organized my platoon into three ten-figure squads, divided into two teams.  Each team has a heavy weapon, not unlike a BAR in a US WWII platoon.  In addition to the three squads, there is also a weapon squad and a platoon headquarters.

  1. Nice job Buck, the armor really looks good, especially the camouflage patterns
