|With the old breed|
Totally frickin cool, a real mythological figure for me. I'm not even worthy to paint it!
I will give it a go though.
|Good night Chesty, wherever you are.|

Chesty is a Veteran Colonel so 165 points alone! (How many points is three Navy Crosses by 1943?)
Maybe I should squeeze in a tank! How about a 'Satan' M3 for 135?
As far as the "Armies of the United States"" go they look pretty good with extra MMG's as a standard feature of the US Infantry. Marines get extra BAR's and pistols. Actually pretty stoked that they even included the LVT's at all, but they have most of the versions accounted for.
Missing were rifle grenades, bummer, they're handy.
Osprey illos are always top notch and reasonably correct as well.;-)
The anecdotal info is good stuff and not just old hat. Plus there is info on tons of old stuff you'll recognise from FoW and suddenly need to model in 28mm!
Anyway, had a quick look at the rules and we've got a few players ready to go or warming up, expect more soon.
