20mm Vietnam-era ANZAC platoon

I finally got round to ordering a pack of ANZACS from East Riding \Miniatures Platoon 20 range to finish off my ANZAC infantry for Force on Force.  There are four 10 man sections, each with an M60 or GPMG team, scout, and LAW AT weapon plus each man is armed with either an FN, M16 or Owen SMG.  The first three sections will form a platoon, along with the three man command team in front, while the fourth section will represent either a section from another platoon if needed.  There are also some extra RTO figures who can form spotter teams for artillery or air assets.

The entire force.


The command section.


The LAW AT and scout figures plus a prone figure that can represent a sniper or just a prone rifleman.


FN and M16 armed figures.


M60 and GPMG teams.


Slightly lower perspective - the view from the tabletop of the command team.


Similar perspective of the M60 team.


View of the unit from the rear.


Waiting on the painting table for me to spray are three Britannia Centurions, which I bought off Paul at the club, and assembled this week.


Then there are two 15mm Battlefront ANZAC Centurions, from Steve at the club.


And finally an M577 command vehicle.


Now all I need to complete my ANZACs are three M113s with Cadillac Gauge turrets and an M113 fire support vehicle.

As ever, thanks for looking.

  2. Thanks Will, I've got nothing arranged yet for after Christmas, so if you fancy a Vietnam game, I'm up for it. Any preference for rules?

    Cheers, Andy

    1. Thanks Jack. I took advantage when one of the guys at the club was selling off stuff he'd lost interest in or would never have time to complete. Gave me the chance to get a few projects of my own nearer to fruition.

      Cheers, Andy

  5. No probs I bought a load of JB Models from Caliver Books, if I remember correctly, they were 99p each, got some Saladins for Andreivia and some other bits and bobs. I haven't managed to get to the PO so will wait til after Christmas before I send it just in case it gets lost.
    Cheers
