[COMMERCIAL] Empress Miniatures Cold War Range. BAOR AA teams.
« on: September 24, 2020, 07:54:01 AM »
We are today releasing a new 28mm moderns range which is Cold War figures and vehicles for the late 1970's and early 1980's.
First releases are five packs of British Army Of the Rhine - BAOR- figures which include 12 armed with SLR and an L16 81mm mortar crew and a GPMG fixed mount crew.

These packs will be added to and more are currently being sculpted.

Moving on the range will cover more troops for this particular 'conflict' armed with more SLR, GPMG, BRENs, Karl Gustav, Command, 2" mortar, as lots more.

It will also include vehicle crews to go with our large range of British vehicles for the period and we have a 1/50 scale Chieftain just about to go into moulds. 

The range will move onto include other areas of conflict at the time such as the Falklands War.

It will also include a range of Soviet Paratroops in a few months and we have a great many vehicles for that as well.

Worth checking out is Underfire Miniatures who also have Soviet and other troops from the same sculptor that work.

Enough chatter here are the first figures to be released.

They do look good, perfect for Cold Wars that have gone hot and Winter of 79 as well as Twilight 2000  :)

Yes to all of that.  :D
"Peace" is that brief, glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading.

Nope MkV helmet but without hessian scrim as per NI and elsewhere. Para helmets and berets would be nice as well but I just assumed you would be adding those for the South Atlantic.

Got you.

Probably the odd figure depending on his job. ie gate guard.

As a major range release ie Northern Ireland, its not planned. We could do a head sprue.

Your wish is our command.

Also check the beret head sprues in the Ultra Modern Brits room as they will work. I plan to try a few ASAP.

What he said.

Do the figures have separate or integrated heads?

Nice set of figures, I will get an order off.

Thanks.

For the less knowledgeable (like me), can we have a brief description of the kit they are wearing?

Thanks.
