Giant robots? Not so much. Rather tall Germans and Russians? Yes and I suppose I can always keep the giant robots as a reserve option.  :)

You’re right though, I should go with this one as eventually I’ll want a Scorpion too and it will  be nice for them to match. Probably fit better with my 1/48 Chieftains too, not that they are likely to appear together.

Having put the 1/50 and 1/48 versions together there is not much in it TBH.

Crap hats and Para helmets yes.

Some of the recce infantry were issued with Para helmets as it was easier to wear in vehicles.

Nathan has a new order just left with the update stock on BAOR etc. Not these of course.  ;)

The pack of blokes with the Sterling SMGs look very nicely done.

Thanks. I suspect the purists will whinge as there were very few Sterlings within an infantry unit but we felt the need. The figures do work for specials such as RSM, CO etc. Although they were not issued them either.

The pack we expect some comments about are the prone figures but having looked at training films of the period it brings it home how much time soldiers spend prone.

Credit Carlos with this film.

Now onto Paras.

Sterlings are useful and appreciated for.
 
a) Sappers, RAME, RMP (with head swaps) and all sorts of odds and sods and hangers on that can still be incorporated into a platoon plus sized game.

b) 1960s infantry where use of the Sterling by JNCOs seems to have been much more of a thing, at least  period photos seem to suggest as much. Shave off the right trouser pocket, remove the sleeve pocket on the jacket, paint green and there you have it. Chaps to defend Berlin in 1961 or repelling Jack Lynch’s mooted invasion by the Irish Army of Norn Irn in 1968.* I have a second platoon’s worth so converted.




* The aptly named Exercise/ Operation Armageddon. Look it up. Utterly bizarre and suicidal for the Irish Army, had it taken place but good gaming fodder, the Irish even get Comet tanks.

Another beautiful looking range Paul ... and you’ve tipped me over the edge on this one.

Going to put an order in today, starting with some minis, while I drool over the vehicle pictures for a little longer - thinking of using them for a Twilight 2K sort of game

Corgi did a Bedford TM in 1/50. Truck bed is way too long but a bit of surgery to the chassis and some plastic card should fix that.
