We are continuing to expand our forces for Ambush Alley. My recent work has been painting Marine forces for An Nasiriyah in 2003. Here are a few of the vehicles from this weekend’s work:

Everything that I’ve read and seen have most of the softskins, troop carriers and logistics for the 2nd Marine Division in 2003 in Woodland Camouflage. The speed of the deployment meant there was little time to repaint vehicles. Most Marines would have been wearing MOPP gear as well, which was also in the same pattern. One exception is most helmets had Desert covers.

You’ve probably already looked at the USMC’s photo archive on the DoD website, but if you haven’t it’s worth a look. There are some great pics there of “the march up” which really show the mixture of old and new paint and uniforms.
