15mm Modern US Marine Corpsman and Casualties plus Force on Force Rules....

....and why did I buy them?

15mm Peter Pig modern US marine corpsman plus assistance and marine casualty figures, there is one navy corpsman normally per marine platoon, also bought these rules that my brother funded with an amazon voucher at Christmas....I may have bitten off more than I can chew as I usually like my rules like me....simple but we'll give them a go anyway!

  1. This might sound weird, but I love those casualties.

  4. They look very good, particularly the chap holding up his plasma bag! Good luck with the rules, like you I find simple is best.

  5. They died a heroes death, they died to protect King Fran. It was a noble cause....

  6. Having some more in depth rules could be good as long as they don't drive you insane.

  7. Very nice set of figures and really nice painting too.

  8. There are a lot of favourable reviews on the web for FoF and I gather once you get the hang of the basics it plays pretty smoothly. A couple of the guys at Angus Wargames Club have used them and given them two thumbs up.

    And I'm sure your fine looking Corpsmen will only want to play under the best rules!

  9. You can never have enough rules mate.

  10. They are good rules mate. They're actually quite simple, but use some different mechanisms to traditional rules, which takes a little getting used to and that is what seems to put people off, but stick with it and I'm sure you'll be happy.

  11. Good choice of rules!
    I did paint some irregulars in January and will receive my own mob of US Army & Special Forces next week.

    Your USMC looks great. I hope your oppnent has enough irregulars. He will need a lot...

  13. That corpsman is going to have his work cut out for him.

  15. Nice looking casualties and medics

  16. Great job on those, Fran. It's nice to see Corpsmen on the field. If you get to the casualty within the 1st 15 minutes, the chance of survival goes way up.

  17. Poor dead guys... Their tiny families will be so devastated...

    ReplyDelete
  18. The picture with all the dead guys is kind of creepy and sad!

  19. Well painted, as always, Fran.

  20. The figures look Rey nice. However, the rules are best for small unit actions. We have played large and very large games with them and they break down after you get a few companies for each side. In fact, the Vietnam game I posted on my blog last summer was a game using these very same rules.

    But I am liking those figures.

    1. That is "really nice" ... Bloody autocorrect on the iPad just doesn't do what it should.

  21. Great figs. I got the force on force rules last week. I looked at the index and started reading the intro. It took about 5 miniutes before I said to myself, "Hmmm...I'm not really up for this. I wonder where my copy of Flying Lead is?"

    I think the older I get, the simpler I like my rules.

  22. They look very realistic, here's hoping they don't smell that way.

  23. Great painting! Seems to be a good figure set.

  24. Sweet!!!

    Although those are way to many casualties... Whoever commands hat outfir... His career hit a dead end! ;-)

  25. I thought it was Semper Fi, do or die. Not Semper Fi, do or get treated by Navy personnel.

  26. Hope to hear a review from ye of these rules in due course

    ReplyDelete
  27. Those are really cool in a macabre kind of way.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Why do those cute little dead bastards amuse me so?

    ReplyDelete
  29. I could imagine it's quite sad to paint casualties

    ReplyDelete
  30. I've been away. Did you make your own country yet? Did I miss it?

    I just came from Ray's page and saw he made all you guys, but asked him where he was?

    1. I was sipping tea with my feet up, watching Fran and the other dig a hole!

  31. Fran, these are very nice figures, and very useful with the FoF rulebook. About this one, in my local Club we have been playing with it since it was "Ambush Alley", and I can say you it is a very easy to lear and enjoyable rulebook with wich you can have a very realistic (and fun) game.

    Best regards.

  32. Great paint job. I hear you on the simple rules -- feel the same way myself.

  33. I know casualties happen, but it's a little scary to see the figures...

    ReplyDelete
  34. actually, you need more blood :D

  35. Stay in there soldier! It's nice to see that little touch here and there.

  36. Nice figs, look forward seeing them in action
