Here are some examples of how I have applied these labels to the bases of my newly finished US Parachute Rifle Company.
|HQ Unit / Second in Command Carbine Team - HQ Unit|
The label includes a coloured block with platoon number or abbreviation (such as 1 for first Platoon or MG for Machine Gun Platoon or AA for Anti Aircraft) then a team description. The final box identifies which section or squad the unit belongs to within the platoon.
|Second Platoon / Commanding Officer Rifle-MG Team / HQ Unit|
|1st Platoon / Rifle-MG Team / Squad 1|
The finished labels are clear to read and the different coloured platoon markers makes identification easy without being too intrusive.
What do you think? I'd love to know how you deal with the issue of identification when the models are on the battlefield.
