Just a few steps and a few sweeps of the tail, and 25 good men were dead.
26 men were wounded, and evacuated soon after attack was driven off.
The commander visits the troops. Lending a word of praise or encouragement.
The Monster was played by a vinyl Godzilla that I have had for about ten years. The troops were mostly from first series WWII era Tim Mee 60mm American troops. Others, like the flamethrower men were last series Tim Mee troops with Cold War era weapons, including M14's. Other troops included figures from Lido, and a few from Marx, in 60mm and 54mm too. The battle took place in my backyard. With the drought in California, I have let most of the lawn burn off. The resulting terrain is sandy with a few scrub plants.
