Wot! First generation Germans but no Infantry Combat Group! Ronnie

 Working on these chaps today. Added a couple of bazookas with very simple conversions. Figures based and minimal paint added followed by gloss varnish.

  1. Nice to see these 'golden oldies' still marching on (plus a bit more!).

  2. Excellent simple bazooka conversions. Lovely box too. .
    This is the one figure I have missing from my US Marines version 1 so thankfully I have some bazookas in my Pound Store Plastic mini US Infantry / US Marines version 2 clones.

    1. Basic but effective, Airfix conversions for the 2020s. I am getting out the used biro pen tube soon to make some mortars...

  3. The nostalgia value to these figures is enormous for those gaming in the late 1960s and early 70s.

    1. The great pull of the nostalgia ocean affects us all.

  4. Utterly fabulous, Alan. Even gloss varnish! You spoil me.

  5. The Infantry Combat Group box art is also wonderfully nostalgic - "when the British infantryman wore an immaculately knotted tie for battle". Can't now remember whether such is replicated on the figures!

    1. I’ve never noticed that beg. Glad to see standards being maintained!

    2. Indeed. Reminds me of my tie in the cadets many moons ago.

  6. Nice. I remember buying and playing with the '80s versions of these as a child, with no idea of wargaming at the time - just building simple dioramas and fooling around. I wish I'd done more.

    1. Sounds a great way to use Airfix, no reason not to use them now...

  7. Absolutely lovely. If I were to ever game WWII I would do it with glossy 1/72 figures, preferably Airfix.

  8. The only way is Airfix. *
    * other scales, materials and companies are available.
