Very very cool. And the guy in figure set with the wrench looks like Pete Thownsend

Hlaven Supporting Member of TMP05 Oct 2016 8:42 a.m. PST

Sorry. Pete Townsend.

Hlaven Supporting Member of TMP05 Oct 2016 8:44 a.m. PST

Pete Townshend. More coffee please.

Nice figures, perfect for the Kelly's Heroes scenario in Wargames Illustrated 291, called "Bank Heist."

It doesn't get much cooler than this. I've been wanting to run a campaign doing a different WW2 film each meeting. These are perfect.

I remember seeing info on gaming Kelly's Heroes on the FOW site:

Also, somebody did a series of scenarios, maybe even a campaign, of the movie much like what was done with the Band of Brothers series. Arc Of Fire sticks in my head but I'm not sure that is correct.

If only in 15mm.

A full Kelly's Heroes campaign was done based on the NUTS! game system, but you can use the scenarios with any rules you like:

One of my favourite characters in that movie was Mulligan (played by Telly Savalas' brother.

SBminis-
Sorry if I was giving credit to someone else mistakenly. I saw your post above and it did not look familiar to me. I recall people posting scenarios, characteristics, etc. for Kelly's Heroes (& Rat Patrol) here on TMP several years ago. My recollection of the formatting was different than your post so I was thinking it was another, different collection.

Only $80 USD+shipping for all 8 figures and the tank.

Glad you like them too my good friend!. (smile)

Where's Crapgame?

Jeffers18 Jun 2018 8:57 a.m. PST

Isn't the figure at top right Crapgame?

I'd love to see an expansion set based on Moriarty's post war career as captain of the Pacific Princess…

I should get out more.

Fred Cartwright18 Jun 2018 10:51 a.m. PST

Isn't the figure at top right Crapgame?

Yes I think you are right. From top left, German Tiger commander, Little Joe, Crapgame, Moriarity, Kelly, Big Joe, Oddball, Turk. Plenty of characters left for another set!

Legion 418 Jun 2018 2:51 p.m. PST

Sound right to me ! Woof Woof !
