Flags are transfers.  Company B I think.

These look really smart. I have just opened my TAG Marines which are of the same quality-they also arrived next day...how do companies do that??

Will the TAG marines be OK with the Somalia era pattern on them??

Thanks

Sorry - I don't know.

One of these figures is actually a conversion from a Marine.  Guy with the SAW.  Head swap and greenstuff knee pads.

The paintjob is really good. And I am going to steal that flag transfer idea.

But there is something about the massive weapons and ginormous hands on those TAG minis that is somewhat offputting.

Thanks chaps.

...I am going to steal that flag transfer idea.

By all means.  I borrowed the idea from Agis.   ::)  Link

...But there is something about the massive weapons and ginormous hands on those TAG minis that is somewhat offputting.

Are the hands too big for the bodies, or the bodies too small for the hands?   ???  ::)
It's just sculpting style.  And who else comes close to their range of Modern stuff?  (I must buy some of their African militia-types.)

Indeed. Those miniatures look so very good. But i am a big fan of TAG miniatures and, time & money permitting, would start a WW2 Burma project with miniatures from TAG. ;-)
