Regroup squad by derbz Regroup squad by derbz
Based on US marines during the heavy fighting in the Pacific Islands in 1944 against Japan. Quite happy with the colours on this one

Watercolors, inks, pen.

1944 fighting in the Pacific was brutal and the number of casulties and civilian deaths were very high.


This is an amazing representation of that with the explosion and the radio and the trenches. But I guess the Thompson could kick off a few rounds...

Overall, I like this, a lot :D

Thank you JP, yes the Island hopping campaigns were particularly brutal, in stark contrast to the tropical paradises that many of the islands were
