My heart was set on the old Foundry paras but I suspect I’ll need to go bigger if I use those heads, so probably the Artizan range.

The metal British Paratroop Section from Warlord may be of use.
They have the later model stens with the foregrip, No4 Mk1 Enfields etc. Could remove the 37 patt waterbottle and replace with something more 44 patern'ish.

I have the old Paul Hicks sculpted Warlord paras and they are very petite. I suspect they would look like melon heads with these added. Have WG released something newer in metal? You are right about the Artizan chaps though, wrong model Sten. Quite bizarre really.

Dare I suggest WG's plastic Brit Paras?  Those heads might look OK on them.  Not sure about the Sten model on them - I'm not at my wargame building, but the Enfields are def No. 4s.

Good point, they would look a bit 'bobble-head'.

Here's a couple of plastic WG WW2 Marine bodies with EM heads, from the Ultra Moderns range. Sort of look ok...

That's a cracking conversion on those Warlord Games Marines, Ash!

We have just released a 28mm head sprue with the WW2 MKII Para helmet.
Cool, now they will go nicely with the WW1 13 pounder when it turns up...

As an update we are working through the Soviet Paras and just about to start some SAS/ SBS. These will work for Europe and the Falklands.

Hopefully plus hooded smocks and eclectic belt kit.
I see having another go at painting DPM somewhere in my future...
