As of yesterday lunch-time, my modern warfare miniatures have I ordered from The Assault Group arrived for Force on Force. I spent the subsequent afternoon painting (assembling took around half an hour - they are single piece metal models, and just needed basing which took 30mins for all 16 models, then a few more for the M60 Insurgent team).
The models I ordered:
- 8 British Army soldiers (two sets of 4, one platoon command, and 4 standard soldiers)
- 8 Afghan/Taliban Insurgents (two sets of 4 again, but great variety, none are the exact same model)
- One 3-man M60 Afghan/Taliban Insurgent TeamI have painted 2 British Soliders in Desert camo already, and 3 insurgents (I painted these more quickly; as it's a simpler colour scheme). So far results are very good and I'm very pleased.
However, on Friday I returned home to find a 1:55 scale model Chinook helicopter to go with the Modern Minis had arrived before the actual minis themselves.
