North American Combine Infantry WIP

To end week three of Ogre miniatures here are the 6mm Combine infantry figures I've based.  I need to texture the bases next, and then I'll be another step closer to completing the miniatures I need to run the games of Ogre at Blast-Tastic! in October as announced here.  I guess that makes that official then.  You heard it here first.

Each base of three figures counts as a platoon, and I have based some figures as one's and two's for casualty accounting.  The above represents three Company's worth of men.  This is equivalent to a Battalion sized formation, and as I have the same number again this means I'm fielding what can be called a short infantry Regiment.

I haven't a clue what to call my new Regiment, so any suggestions for a name will be considered.  Perhaps I need two names, one for each Battalion as the US Army names its infantry formations differently to British conventions.  I shall have to go away and do some research.


  1. 6th Infantry Bn - "The Pink Panthers"

    1. That would make them in Air Cav parlance part of a HK team.

    1. Certainly better than "Yellow Peril", which I use to use.

  3. How are you going to texture your stands? I've got a whole bunch of PanEuro infantry that I need to mount on pennies and get painted up, but I'm not sure what to use to cover the bases.

    1. I will do them like I did my Pan Euro infantry; Milliput fillet covered with texture paint. Texture pain is just paint with sand in it that gives a rough surface when applied. See here:

    2. I use washers and magnets on each of my 400+ infantry, Combine and Paneurpoean. You can spray paint the washers with green fleck paint to make it look like undergrowth. I like using washers because of three reasons. First, you can see the terrain beneath the squads. Two, you can remove and arrange infantry according to their tactical situation. Third, they are inexpensive.

    3. You're a more patient modeller than I to magnetize 6mm infantry. I'd take my hat off to you if I was wearing one. ;-)
