My order has finally arrived! A while ago when me and my friends Dave and Paul were looking to get into some Cold War gaming I went searching for suitable infantry figures and found these http://20thcenturywargames.blogspot.co.nz/2011/05/mystery-set.html
Apparently they were not available and not likely to be any time soon. And so, I went with these instead http://20thcenturywargames.blogspot.co.nz/2011/06/cold-war-british-infantry.html
Well, now I have the lot and can represent all manner of British Infantry from 1950-1990s. I didn't know about the Britain's Deetail figures at the time, but now I know that these were originally 1/32
Nicely detailed figures with very minimal flash
I've only done a couple of companies because I want to mix the figures with some Matchbox NATO paratroops, if I can get some...?
A couple of the figures have rank stripes on their sleeves and I may attempt to highlight these on a few of them later
I spent a lot of time trying to get the camouflage right, which was very difficult considering I spent half my adult life wearing the stuff!
The grenadier poses
A couple of pictures taken in brighter light to show you the DPM
All of them need to be touched up now around their bases, neck lines and berets but are more or less finished. I used only Vallejo paints for this project
These first few are, of course, Marines :)
