Again it is Females (in the main) that I am seeking to kickstart for the period.

I am hoping to do a range of VBCW figures – that may have some use as partisan/ stoic defender types for imaginations versions of historic wars.

I aim to try and get a dozen or so figures as a start, that can be painted up to represent quite a few different sides in the conflict. if I was really successful then I could hope for a much larger range and some more special kickstarter exclusives.

I really need to do this around the same time as my other kickstarter, but It all depends on the interest generated.

Contact me if you have any real essentials that I have to include –

I was also thinking of dropping a few weird war figures in at the same time, would these type of figures as stretch goals make you less likely to support the range

I'd be interested in helping out / getting involved with this or your other venture.
I must be in an ethical mood today (just got a recasting thread removed from another forum) so once my paid membership is processed, I'll send you a PM (as opposed to just posting an email address here)

I'd love to see a group of female pilots ala The Blackhawks or the Russian Chickenhawks. Mix of pistols and smgs.

How about some unarmed civilian types such as school teacher & schoolgirls, housewives, Miss Marple types, etc? I was also thinking of a few of the female characters from Dad's Army, such as Mrs Pike, Mrs Fox, land army girl, etc

I can think that a graduate of Miss Jean Brodies class with optional rifle might be an interesting figure.

I think Foundry do some Dads Army types, but a land army girl might be an option.

I quite like the Pilots but think they may be too specific?

I was thinking of perhaps a Rat Pack or Dirtier Dozen (fatale femmes or Fox Force Five) of secret agent types as a stretch goal?

Or a Crossbow armed sniper girl?, or with silenced pistol and commando knife, or …?

But lots in overcoats, utility clothing, military jackets, as well for the historical aspect.

Couple of good female types with firearms in " The Eagle has landed.". I forget the actresses names, but one was on Upstairs/Downstairs…
