I always liked the old Herald British infantry, but always wished they made WW2 figures with a proper enemy. I always used the Airfix Russians against my chaps.ReplyDelete
I must look out my Russians...Delete
When I was very young I was given a fort and some soldiers (like many of us I suspect), half of the soldiers were wearing redcoats and bearskins and the rest were the Herald khaki infantry.ReplyDelete
I was told that the redcoats were the British and the khaki soldiers were the Germans. Even at that early age I preferred the look of the khaki soldiers and played with a bias towards them.
Having said all that those grey soldiers look great, thanks for this post, I love the nostalgia.
The grey enemy should look fine. If any such Herald khaki infantry argued worry about being seen as turncoats, just tell them it's alll a training exercise uniform, Aggressor vs USA styleReplyDelete
They took to their new role with relish this morning.Delete
I have uploaded photos of the 1959 page of the Great Book of Britains to my blog, VaubantoMaginot.blogspot. Not an easy operation.ReplyDelete
I have abandoned the new blogger format as I can’t make any sense of how to post using it. I am sure it wasn’t an easy operation for you.Delete
