I picked up a couple of packs of Brigade Games WW2 USMC raiders from North Star Figures some time ago when they were blowing them out. I figured I can always make use of special forces types – if not in a more conventional war game, surely in some smaller scale skirmish or role-playing game (possibly involving over-the-top pulp adventure or otherworldly baddies). I’d need a few more riflemen to make a smallish force to take on my Japanese.

Marine raiders from Brigade Games.
I suppose if I had six more riflemen I could do a small force with a small head quarters of two, and three squads of 6 men… but for now this force is as complete as I need it to be and I have no desire to go tracking down more marines for it at present…
Headquarters – Lieutenant and Sergeant
Actually now that I think about it, it may have been two packs of 4 marine raiders and a pack of 6 marines with BARs and Rifles...?

Japanese...? Probably...? Or maybe French...
