Haven’t had a chance to paint my new figures yet (need to replace a few of my Vallejo colors and mediums when I get a chance), but here’s a photo of the 4 guys I built up as private military contractors.
The second guy from the left is a SAW conversion. I wanted to see how the SAW looked in a more conventional form factor, so I cut off the right arm, removed the grenade launcher, shortened the sound suppressor attached to the barrel, and shaved a few other places down a little bit. I used one of the normal rifle-carrying right arms as a replacement, shaving off everything except a portion of the shoulder stock. It’s a bit on the chunky side, which kind of works because it looks like one of those gonzo fully automatic shotguns.
I gave them ball caps and carbines. No real reason other than it looks different from the fully helmeted marines with full-length rifles. I haven’t decided what color to paint them yet, but I’m leaning towards either gray or OD for the clothing and black for the armor and webbing.
