Modern U.S. Military figs

Post by ShockAndAwe on Sun Aug 30, 2009 1:25 am

U.S. Marine Infantry

Sporting the U.S. Marine Corp's woodland MARPAT and an M16A4 with an ACOG and AN/PEQ2, this Marine is ready for anything. He's wearing a Coyote Brown OTV which is more commonly found with USMC units in Iraq, while the MTV and SPC are more commonly found with USMC units in Afghanistan. He's also wearing a USMC LWH [Light Weight Helmet] (which fully replaced all PASGT helmets this year) with a nightvision mount, and ESS Nightvision profile goggles. The brown color in the MARPAT looks a little pinkish in these photos but it's really just solid brown.


Back view, showing the back of his USMC LWH (Light Weight Helmet) and his Coyote Brown CamelBak on the back of his OTV.


U.S. Army Infantry

Sporting the U.S. Army's Universal Camoflague Pattern (more commonly known as ACU) and an M4 with an ACOG and AN/PEQ2, this grunt is (also) ready for anything. He's wearing an OTV which can still be found in U.S. Army units in Iraq, but is no longer issued, although it seems that the newer IOTV is less comfortable. He's also wearing an ACH/MICH helmet with ESS goggles, and desert tan boots.


Back view, showing the back of the ACH/MICH helmet and the Camelbak hydration carrier on the back of the vest.


U.S. Army Rangers

Shown here are six members of the US Army's 75th Ranger Regiment. From left to right: Automatic Rifleman, US Army Combat Robotics Technician(embedded with the Ranger squad), Rifleman/Grenadier, Rifleman/Team Leader, Rifleman, and Designated Marksman.


U.S. Army Ranger Squad Leader

Front view, showing pouches on vest, M4A1, etc. Sorry about the weird shine near the guns scope, I was in a hurry to get the pics taken as, I was on my covered porch, with rain barely hitting me.


Back view, showing his hydration carrier, M67 frag, and flashbang.


U.S. Army Combat Robotics Technician

Front view. He controls the combat robot on the right. He was embedded in a Ranger unit as a sort of 'experiment' to see how the idea would perform; while adopting the style of the helmet and vest, he decieded to keep on his ACU blouse and desert tan boots.


Just a back view, not much but the hydration carrier.


U.S. Army Ranger Rifleman

Front view, showing his M4A1(with a EO Tech holosight and AN/PEQ2). Nightvision system on his ACH/MICH 2000 helmet, black velcro patches on it, and a brownish 'cateyes' band.


Back view, showing his radio, hydration carrier, M1911 pistol, M67 frag, and the two 'light up' panels(the light green squares) on his 'cateyes' band.


U.S. Army Ranger Designated Marksman

Front view, showing his SR-25 sniper weapon system, etc.


Back view showing M67 frag, hydration carrier, laser designator, etc.


U.S. Army Ranger Automatic Rifleman

Front view, showing his Mk 48 Mod 1(which sports a EO Tech holosight, a foregrip, bipod, and custom 200 rd box mag), two box mag pouches, nightvision, ESS goggles, etc.


Back view, showing three-day assualt pack and M67 frag.


U.S. Army Ranger Rifleman/Grenadier

Front view, showing his M4A1(which has a PVS-14, EO-Tech holosight, AN/PEQ-15, and M203 grenade launcher) and other front details.


Back view, M67 frag(not sure why he has it though, since he has an M203), flashbang, hydration carrier, pouch, etc.


U.S. AH-64D Apache Longbow Pilot

Yeah, dark pictures. While not 100% accurate I think its pretty good for a first time. The monocular display comes from the side on this fig while in real life it comes from the bottom side of the helmet and swivels upward, but that was hard to get based on the way minifigs are set up.


Back view showing a lot of his ACU flightsuit.


Side view, he carrys a combat knife.


Hope you liked them all.

Some of the mods are very rough, with their final paint job. It seems as though big blotches of the paint were left in certain spots, giving it that unfinished textured look. However, the detail, precision, and respect to the actual weapons and equipment is very, very strong. Furthermore, most of your camoflauges are just sexy, and I think you nailed the ACU on your Army soldier Wink .


Bravo! Now I can't wait to see something Clone Wars out of you Razz .

It's nice, the paint is very good except for the guns, which look all rough and old. Anyway, how did you do the camo? Stickers? Decals?

Pretty cool! I like the guns! Though the Military Infantry looks a bit odd, everything else is pretty well done!

Nice! Reminds me of JasBrick's work (except rougher that is).

I use sticker/decal paper. As for the roughness, some of it was intentional, as you won't find one weapon or piece of gear, thats been in desert combat, nice and clean. The paint jobs on the weapons were intentional, as soldiers spray paint their weapons "in the field", so the finish comes of in many spots do to the wear and tear of desert and urban combat.
