20MM Revell British and TV crew

Hi,

I thought I would share a few pics today of my cheap and chearful Revell Modern British troops. They have painted up OK and I now have three companies of 8 figures and two HMG units. I also squeezed a command group out of the box but did use an Israeli officer on that stand (maybe he is on an exchange visit?).




The Brits are pictured next to an Under Fire Miniatuires rebel and a Britannia miniatures contractor, The Plastic Revell figures did feel small to paint but in the pics and certainly on the table it is hardly noticeable.

Grubby tanks are fast becoming my go to manufacturer for modern 20mm. I recently got an order which had taken a few days longer than expected and a free Land rover was inside! The customer service is amazing and very much appreciated. In the new year I intend to start a WW2 German army in 20mm and I will be using Grubby tanks for the transports and recce vehicles for sure.



The last pic is of the Grubby tanks TV crew-a must have so that I can record the exploits of my 20mm heroes! The crew are transported using a repainted toy of no brand , only"made in China" on it! 20P from a car boot sale....

Keep blogging Chaps, FV432 pics and WMIK pics incoming on the next post.

    1. Thanks AJ they were the cheapest way of starting an army for Able Archer but I have used them in skirmish games as well....very versatile.
