20mm WW2 US Infantry platoon


You might have seen those in The Analogue Hobbies painting challenge a few weeks back but I'm currently working on a US WW2 force in 20mm scale. First up most of the infantry soon to be followed by support, halftracks, armour and some terrain and other bits and pieces.
While I've done WW2 armies in 15 en 28mm scale this 20mm scale got me excited again to do some WW2 stuff. It seems to have the best of both worlds. They have great detail and paint up nicely, don't take ages and there is a lot available in this scale in terms of figures, vehicles and terrain. They also look perfect to me on the size of boards we are gaming.
Except for some of the command figures, flamethrower, medic and one mortar team these are all AB figures.

  1. Great work Mike. I agree with your comments re 20mm scale figures. I'm really enjoying painting the 20mm moderns, figures. terrain and vehicles once again.

  2. Excellent work on the U.S. Infantry. What size base did you use to mount the figures on? Also I like the paint colors that you used on the infantry. What paints did you use if I may inquire.. Keep up the excellent work Mike.

First blockpainted with vallejo khaki ->strongtone wash-> 50/50 vallejo 826 (med brown) and 821->vallejo 821. Trousers are vallejo 826->strongtone wash ->826->mix in 873 (us field drab) for highlights. Webbing vallejo 886. Helmet Brown violet. Got a list of all steps and paints, let me know if you want it.

    2. Yes could you send me the steps and paints. Currently I'm using the Life Color U.S Army uniform paint set. After painting I when dip the figures with Vallejo miniature dip. Your colors looks closer to the real uniforms
      Thanks

  3. Great looking US troops, Mike; you've captured the "elusive" OD/khaki colors marvelously!

  4. Excellent work for sure! I've thought about 20mm WWII, but so far have managed to resist.

  5. I really like the work you have done with the U.S. jackets. They all look suitably faded and fatigued from exposure.

    Great work!

  6. Great work Mike! Nice to see 20mm minis being used in WW2. It's a bit surprising how uncommon they are considering the amount of kits available as scale models etc. for the scale.
