28mm PIRA ASU

Is it me or are 20mm figures gradually shrinking ? I suspect its my eyes! I've been thinking for a while now that any new projects will be getting done in 28mm, I've got a lot of 20's and I'll need to supplement as I go, but for new ventures it's gonna have to be 28. In keeping with this I found some usable figures for low level skirmish stuff in Ulster, they're from the "Geezers" range by Killer B Games, here's the link Killer B Games , these boys are sold as 1970's armed robbers but they'll be masquerading as members of a PIRA ASU. You don't obviously get a wide weapon selection and I've done a small conversion to the player in the middle who was holding a money bag. I chopped the whole hand off and added a new hand in the stop position with a little greenstuff. They're based on pennies and ready for paint. The initial opposition will be Gripping Beast/MOFO from the Falklands range. Dougie

  2. Very sinister! What rules are you looking at using for this project?

    1. Gaz, the main aspect I'm looking at for Operation Banner is the Security Forces role in South Armagh and as a result its very low level skirmish stuff. I've been adapting "Normandy Firefight", the first run through/playtest will be on the 31st at my club. Check out my previous updates in the Northern Ireland section of the blog, I'm now looking at doing this in 28mm though.

  3. A great start- really need one with a Thompson. Looking forward to seeing what you do with them.

    Cheers,

    1. Thanks Pete, I do need the thompson and some other weaponry, AR15s, possibly an M60 or even a Barrat light .50.
