Marauder Task Force WWII US Navy FMF Navy Corpsman Gear Designs Revealed

Heads Up! Marauder Gun-Runners has revealed the final Marauder Task Force WWII US Navy FMF Navy Corpsman Gear Designs! The pair of images was sent to backers via Kickstarter, but were also shared by our good friend Marauder Ruben on Instagram. Here’s the scoop from MJ – 

Here are the final sculpt designs for the MTF Navy Corpsman gear.  The sculpts are done and we will share prototype images soon (along with British, Russians and the Panzer Grenadier).    Yes, we know it is not historically accurate for British soldiers to carry a wounded Marine…but remember: it is YOUR MTF world and you can do WHATEVER you want!

It won’t be long before we’re able to add these awesome figures to our collections. Are you excited about these US Navy FMF Navy Corpsman Gear Designs? Sound off on Cobra Island Forums!
