These are just great  8)

And in fact, with a headswap to some with GI pots and/or berets on, they would do almost perfectly as Dutch infantry in the early nineties. The webbing is a bit off and the Sterling needs swapping out for an UZI (don't know what to do with the marksman rifle though), but other than that, they're perfect!

I've always wanted to recreate this short period of time in which we were still using old weapons and helmets, but were already fielding newer uniforms and webbing; the change from a large conscript army to a small professional one. It lasted only a couple of years (so would be of no interest whatsoever for any sculptor) but it was the time I walked in those boots, so of special interest to myself...  :D
Miniatures you say? Well I too, like to live dangerously...

Last pack and all 20 together....





I've had a blast painting these but I'm unlikely to do anything with them so if anybody is interested feel free to make me an offer  ;)

They look cracking (as per). 

Any idea how they scale with Crooked Dice and other ranges?

Cheers

Nothing to hand to do a comparison shot but, as far as CD goes, pretty well, especially with any of their Mark Evans sculpts.

Cheers - I guess I'll have to order a couple of packs  lol

If nothing else they can be TA/reservists with deep reserve kit for my twilight 2k game
