I was lucky enough to bags the Marines going into the Pacific project and I can tell you it has been a lot of fun experimenting to get the colours just right. A couple of days ago I finished the Marine Rifle Platoon for my Amphibious Tank Company.
I went for a sand camo on most of the helmets and used colours which can be found in the below video. Overall I had a lot of fun painting these guys they're great sculpts with a lot of character.
Now me being me I couldn't help but overdo it and if there's one thing I really like it's a painting challenge. I chipped the Marines landing craft and then went to town with the AK Interactive products and in the end I was very happy with the results.
My little painting guide for the LVT 4 -A:
There's still a bit more work to do and right now it's mostly crewmen and details like tracks and metal colours but in about a week or so most of this should be ready to hit the beach.
