Folks,
can anyone suggest a range of figures 25mm 'scale' of Americans with M1 helmets/ALICE/MOLLE kit.
I'm looking for figures to butcher that will match in with the old West End Games Star Wars range to produce Scarif rebels.

Cheers
AJT

Jungle rot is the old London War Room figures. As a bonus most of the figures come with separate heads.

The Battle Honors are more like 25mm than 28mm.

Two 1/72 plastic models that you can look at are on the Plastic Soldier Review site.

Killer B Games do American soldiers in 1956 webbing with M1 helmets and M14s.

Recreational Conflict stock them in the U.S.

I second VCarter's recommendation of Jungle Rot Vietnam miniatures. I own some and they are true 25mm, and will fit nicely with West End games Star Wars line of miniatures (which I also own). Hey, that gives me a great idea!

Captain Gamma, thanks for the Killer B link. First I've heard of them.
28mm?

Captain Gamma23 Jun 2017 2:05 p.m. PST

Troopwo, yes they are 28mm.

Yes on the Battle Honors they are true 25mm for the Americans. The VC/NVA are even smaller.

If you want some really nice figures, check out Eureka's kriegspiel(sp) range.

There are Japanese, Austrian, and a aggressor force armed with AK's and the like.

The Vietnam ANZAC line is also true 25mm.

Others in their modern line are closer to 28mm.
