This first lot include metal and plastic figures. Most of the plastic figures are conversions, basically head swaps, weapon swaps & one with a different arm.
|The Plastic Commandos|
|The closest bloke is a Plastic Soldier Company body with a head from HaT British Tank Riders set, plus a paper rifle strap was added.|
|The officer chappy with the Sten & binoculars is a new Airfix British figure with a head I chopped off some cheap Hong Kong minis I picked up on Trade Me- his arm, with Sten, was donated from another plastic figure.|
|The kneeling figure was from Italeri with a head replacement & a Sten replaced with a metal Sgts Mess rifle with paper rifle strap.|
|Italeri figure, no conversions here.|
|Figure on far left is Airfix with head swap.|
|Lovely metal minis from Wartime Miniatures. They were meant to have Tam-o-Shanters, but I just filed them down to make them look like berets.|
|The next few figures are from Battlefield/Blitz range of metal miniatures.|
|I really like the Bergen pack on this bloke, looks cool.|
I have some more Battlefield/Blitz figures yet to paint, plus Dan Dunbar is making me a section of commandos, plus I may lash out and buy the AB Commando section, and finally, I may do some more headswap conversions.
