10mm American Paratroopers

I've been working on a regiment of American paratroopers for an Eve of D-day game I'm doing at Fall-In using our "Look, Sarge, No Charts: WWII" rules. The figures are a mix of GFI/Minifigs and Pendraken. Each full stand equals a platoon, and half sized stands are sections or HQ's. Below are some photos of one of the battalions.
As always, click on any picture to see it larger.

Uncharted Seas Orc Flagship and Admiral

Just finished my Orc Flagship 'The Screaming Goblin' for Uncharted Seas. I modified the standard model by adding Wargames Factory round shields to the sides and a WF ancients banner to the stern. I also added a Games Workshop Goblin head to the top of the mast.

I also painted a 28mm Black Scorpion Miniatures' "Orc Admiral" figure to represent the Orc commander in our games. We play mostly multi-player Uncharted Seas games, and I'll place this figure in front of the player who is taking the role of the commander of the Orcs' side. I plan to also do a Dwarven counterpart to represent their commander.
