aka "MARSOC" or Force Recon Very Happy

Here is a very little project that I started a few days ago. These are various Caesar figures that have undergone some serious surgery Very Happy Most of the boonies came from the Bundeswehr set, and the baseball caps came from one of the new "sportsmen" sets by Caesar.
The M4s got a lengthened barrel and are now M16A4s, I made a designated marksman with an SR-25, as well as an MGL140. I also decided that Caesar's "SAWs" are actually Mk48 MGs. Which makes the longer barrel accurate as well as gives the squad a NICE extra punch on the wargame table.

Enjoy my project ADD Mr. Green

I used an old base from a Caesar figure, cut it into thin strips, the carved out the raised part then stuck it on with super glue. A couple of them look a bit oversize, but I like the way they look.

Lets see some on those Italian special forces you showed a while back eh? Very Happy
