Really nice
I have a box of the Americans and they are lovely figures with loads of choice when you are building them. Every thing you need in the box to make a Rapid fire Battalion, including heavy weapons. My only problem with them was that they are way bigger than all my other 20mm/1/72/1/76 scale figures and all the vehicle I have look to small. I never even built them as I would needed to have changed all my figures to suit. I think it would be great if you were just starting out in that scale but other wise a real pain.

Yes, they're a lot bigger than the soft plastic 1/72, but I couldn't resist. I'll mainly use them for infantry action, but in case I want to introduce some vehicles, what scale do you think it would be better to use?
Thanks for the compliments,

1/72 scale are the biggest of the three. But I think I have seen pictures with die cast corgi  (1/60 I think?) vehicles but I am not too sure.

Valiant

They could be both Valiant in nature and made by Valiant.  :)

The Valiant figures are really well suited to the dip.  In that scale, I usually use washes for shading anyway, so the dip is a quick shortcut, and they turn out well.
