Normandy Firefight Yanks
As I'm missing Salute tomorrow, I thought I'd make up for it by adding some cheap(ish) figures to the 1/35th scale Normandy Firefight plastic pile. I'm sure I have some of these in the loft somewhere but, as they weren't expensive on Ebay, I thought I'd get some reinforcements to add to the existing collection.
This means that I now have the nucleus of a U.S. infantry squad, with at least three or four figures in prone, kneeling and standing poses plus some spare bits for less than twenty quid. This may sound like not very much for quite a lot.
However, it's at least comparable to the equivalent in 28mm or 1/48th scale lead, assuming you can get figures in all three poses or could be bothered to convert them. I think I prefer the plastic option, especially as I can do some judicious chopping and changing to squeeze a figure or two out of the box.
