Description

G.I. (military)

G.I. is a noun used to describe the soldiers of the United States Army and airmen of the United States Army Air Forces—and for U.S. Marines and sailors—and also for general items of their equipment.[1] The term G.I. has been used as an initialism of “Government Issue” or “General Issue”, but it originally referred to “galvanized iron“, as used by the logistics services of the United States Armed Forces.[2] The letters “G.I.” were used to denote equipment made from galvanized iron, such as metal trash cans, in U.S. Army inventories and supply records.

    These model manage to have detail even at this scale! Very simple but necessary ground pounders. I will be getting many more packs of these to fill out my army.

  2. Dyke (verified owner)

    Fine detail and great value

  3. Charlie Doom (verified owner)

    These squads of G.I. I go well with G.I. II to create an accurate US infantry company with heavy weapons. G.I. I are the riflemen, G.I. II have the mortars, LMGs and command figures.

    The detail is there if you want to paint it, but once your eyes adjust and you learn the topography of the miniatures, I find the 3mm scale miniatures much faster and simpler to paint than larger scales. I can paint a 10-man squad in the span of 20 minutes.

    These models seem designed for an impressionistic painting approach over a highly detailed one. A few highlight colors over a dark base tone is enough to give character and pop the details. Wish you could post images to the reviews!
