Bolt Action: "The Big Red 1" Infantry section 1

I'd like to share with you all my most recent hobby obsession, my US army GI's for Bolt Action. As a 25/28mm system, Bolt Action has been growing in popularity for some time now and is currently well supported with army lists, supplements and fluffy theater books. Even nicer is the sheer choice of models/model companies to select from when piecing together your WW2 army of choice. Sure Warlord Games' model range is very good, but I quite like to spread the love around a bit to keep the variety of sculpts interesting.

Fist up is an infantry section made from Warlord Games' plastic US GI's. I've thrown in some separate heads from Westwind Productions for flavour. I was quite taken by the service record of the US 1st Infantry Division aka "the big red 1" and so I've decided to represent some fictitious units from that division.
