A Call To Arms: British Infantry of the 1970's are just that.
So what do you get? Four identical sprues each with 8 unique figures for a total of 32 men. These are divvied up into:
4 macho officer types firing pistol
4 very macho Charlie G No.1s standing firing
4 patrolling GPMG No.1s
20 assorted riflemen with SLRs in five poses
This is essentially a platoon in a box with some left overs. You know, I really like these plastic squaddies.There's a lot of potential here with just the odd headswop. Plus, these figures are simply reduced versions of Britains 54mm SuperDeetail Paratroopers which were first launched in 1978 and of course because of that they have the bang on feel of the 70's, Life on Mars and a streets of Ulster thing going on for them.
Rather than repeating others, here are links to Paul's excellent PlasticWarriors blog which shows these Toms painted as Falklands era Scots Guards and Argentine 602 Commando Company. And of course the ever interesting Bennos Figure Forum shows their compatibility with Matchbox/Revell's plastic British Paratroopers (Falklands War).
A box of each of these plastics plus some TQD-MF1 SAS Commandos from C-P Models, and you can start your own Winter of '79 shooting war.
