All these figures are all from "Offensive Miniatures": http://www.offensiveminiatures.com/
from their "Near Future" range. I can't really comment on the customer service as I bought them off e-bay (at half price).
The first Photo shows what I assume to be the Command Team (as they're not wearing helmets), but they are missing one other who appears in a later photo.
|Sniper, plus observer (female !)|
The chap I bought them from on e-bay had obviously done this, as I had the extra two figures when they arrived (plus an extra two terrorists!)
I would say that all but one of the terrorists in "the deal" are ideally suited as suvivors for a zombie campaign.
From "Offensive Minis" web site the figures appear to be very diminuative, but this is an illusion caused, I suspect, from their fine sculpted proportions. They really do fit in well with other miniiatures, from various manufacturers; on the web site gallery there is a comparison of figure sizes too.
|Three squaddies, only slightly out of focus !|
All the figures in this set are armed identically, (for the most part) with a side-arm and what looks to me like an MP5, but I'm willing to stand corrected!
Some of the officer/negotiator types have only the sidearm, whilt the sniper has a sniper's rifle (surprisingly enough), though I couldn't possible tell you what it would be, but I can tell that it's a sniper rifle because it has a telescopic sight !(The sum of my modern sniping knowledge has now been passed on).
|Final squaddies, no idea what the third from left is holding.|
As can been seen from the photgraphs, headgear is fairly varied; though the standard Kevlar helmet is much in evidence, there are also gas-masks and caps present, and the female observer is without headgear, as are one or two others.
There is a large amount of detail on the figures, which is great if you enjoy that sort of thing (I don't), but I refuse to even try to put the lettering of "POLICE" on the panel allowed for on the figures (approximately 4.5mm x 1.5mm), even "SWAT", attractive as it may seem with two less letters is well beyond my capabilities. Should I ever get around to it, I may well copy "Lucky Joes" excellent SWAT teams and his use of transfer lettering, after all we can't all be Vampifan with his superhuman eyesight !
This photo shows the building I've used as a backdrop .
I've had this building for maybe 20 years now and I haven't a clue about where it came from, who made it or anything else about it!
The building is made from very thin card and was probably assembled by me, (though I can't remember doing that either) and to the best of my memory I've never used it on a wargames table
Finally a group shot of the whole ensemble.
I was initially undecided as to what colour scheme to go with; blue would clash with (though possibly also compliment) the police, ditto green and the army. So I settled on this bluey, green grey, which coincidentally is the colour scheme used by the SWAT types on the TV program "Flashpoint"
"Offensive Minis" also do a great bunch of rioters and riot police too, available as two seperate deals or one big deal, with the added incentive of a free news crew (something I haven't got - yet), I'll have to wait a while to get those though as I'm not buying any more figures until my current lead mountain becomes a hillock !
That's all for now, comments, as always, are welcomed and appreciated.
