A few updates to my 15mm US moderns...been quite bust recently with uni work that haven't had the time to do any painting at all...but have recently just got a hell of a lot of coursework out of the way and fancied a bit of light relief until other deadlines start creeping up on me so I thought I'd crack on with these guys...

- Troops and vehicle crews from Peter Pig (the crews are converted)

Second attempt...KABOOM...building clear :)
The VC start appearing from behind the US troops...!

The rest of the buildings in the ville were cleared with grenades and knocking out enemy entry points...also the M48 destroyed another building containing an enemy entry point...
