Thanks.

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

Thanks.

Bit of minor surgery, filing off sleeve pocket and the right thigh pocket and with a solid green paint job you could probably get away with a fair proxy of the 1960 pattern combat suit, allowing you to do the 1960s as well.

I reckon you’ll sell quite a few of those bare helmets. If they fit Paul’s WW2 Brits in windproofs they’ll be useful for Korea. In fact they’ll allow for a lot of conversions.

Oh good idea, it totally slipped my mind.  :o

Excellent, especially the respirators.

Actually respirator heads for a number of your existing heads would be nice for those venturing into Zona Alfa etc.

Still waiting for Crooked Dice to restock their SAS respirator heads...

I had a play with some of our modern heads sets for Fusiliers and Scots troops.

Are Para/RM helmets on the way?
And one more request;
Cold War Gurkhas please!
In fact if you wanted to do a whole Konfrontasi / Operation Claret range of tropical pattern troops I wouldn’t complain. The VN RAR could be repurposed but would need L7 to replace the M60s (not sure how different the uniforms would look).

Para uniforms are different to infantry so we will do Paras as complete figures at some point.

Why reinvent the wheel when there’s already a suitable range in existence? Oh and the webbing is quite different too.

Oh not worried, I thought as much all along just wanted to give the chap a clue that what he wants already exists.  :)

Now you said Soviet Paras but for nostalgia’s sake and memories of warm afternoons spent in stuffy huts watching training films, trying to stay awake then surely you want something more like the ‘enemy’ in this.

Maybe Polish paras?  ;)
