Here come the Marines WIP

Re-enforcements for the beleaguered defenders of Peking in 1900 (last year of the 19th Century).  While the Marines in Peking were armed with 6mm Winchester-Lee's, 1st Marine regiment relief troops were armed with .30 Krag-Jorgensens while the ships detachments were still armed with the old .45-70 Trapdoor about a headache for the quartermaster (page 158 The Marines, by the Marine Corps Heritage Foundation).  These men represent the ships detachments, hence their makeshift equipment, and armed with Trapdoors (or in a pinch the straight pull Winchester-Lees's if the scenario calls for them).
