Bolt Action Yanks 
I've really enjoyed painting up the Artizan late war US infantry, even though it's taken far longer than I would have liked, so I thought I'd add a few extra bits to round things off. I've realised that I needed a couple of additional riflemen if I wanted to go mid/late war, so have added a pair to fill in the gaps. This will allow me to lose a BAR gunner from each squad but keep to the textbook twelve figures.
I also neglected to paint up a rather splendid rifle armed sergeant figure, so he's been added to the extras as a potential squad leader, along with a second M1 carbine armed junior officer. The other figures are a three man crew for a Warlord Games 57mm M1 anti-tank gun that I found on Ebay, adding some much needed punch to the reinforced platoon. I'll paint this lot up alongside the AFV's and softskins.
