I set to do this project with the best figs, buildings and rules I could. I was pretty keen on it for a while, but I decided that recent fighting isn't as fun as distant battles - I'd hate to run a game with a guest only to discover that they had friends or family involved in the war.  

So the thrust of our historical skirmish gaming efforts will concentrate on "long ago" fights in Afghanistan, and with figs twice as tall! ________________________________________________________________________

1. 86 Figures

  • British infantry from The Assault Group – TAG - [40 figs],
  • two TAG Afghan RPG dioramas [6 figs, pits to hide in]
  • ISIS / Taliban [[40] from Empress minis.


The Assault Group, aka "TAG"
BAB-006 Afghans w' RPG7 Diorama [3 figs w'foxhole emplacement]
BAB-006 Afghans w' RPG7 Diorama [3 figs w'foxhole emplacement]

BRT-004 Fusiliers w' Cockade [8 figs]
BRT-006 Marine Commandos with Beret [8 figs]]
BRT-007 British Infantry - Black Watch Command [in Bonnet w' Plume] [8 figs]
BRT-008 British Infantry - Black Watch Squad [in Bonnet w' Plume] [8 figs]
BRT-009 British Infantry - Black Watch Squad [in Bonnet w' Plume, shirt sleeves] [8 figs]
All have varied poses.
Packs run $10 / each, so $70 of TAG figs
Total is 24 Black Watch, 8 Marines, 8 Fusiliers, 6 Afghans

I think Brits would be a great platoon to add to an allied scenario. I picked out guys who are not in full combat gear but have the bonnets and berets, just for that purpose. I was going to have them on a civil affairs mission and need to get rescued.

Empress Miniatures
Modern Combat line, Taliban HERE and Insurgents HERE

2xTAL1, 2xTAL2, TAL3, TAL4, TAL5, INS1, INS2, INS3, 4 FIGS ea = 40 figs
These are $13 a pack [yep, $3.33 a fig], so $130 of figs.











These are amazing figs – I shouldn’t be allowed to look at the page, it makes me want to buy their entire Spanish Civil War line...
