I'm currently working on a (small) cold war imagi-nation force…

I plan to use TY British infantry:
– The Mech Platoon box includes FAL/SLR, MAG/GPMG and LAW (I don't need the Carl G's)
– Milan teams are available as singles from BF…

I've got 2 problems though:
- I'd like the option of fielding 1 or 2 SF GPMG but those only come with the company box (wich is way more minis that I need and money that I want to spend)…
- I'd like to field M1 mortars (the US WW2 kind) but have a British CW crew for it. The FV432 box allows to build 4 vehicles, either the APC, the mortar carrier or the Swingfire ATGM carrier. As such it comes 4 (resin I assume) mortar crew. But I don't need a FV432 (imagi-nation, remember?), not to mention 4 of these…

I assume that most FV432 kits ends up built as APC, and that most people have plenty of those mortar crew just laying around… Would someone care to sell me a couple?

SF GPMG is a tougher one as I assume that people that have them probably use them…

I'll pay for postage, obviously (I'm in Belgium, so European seller are probably my best bet)…

Anyway… If you can help me: tybritishmortarcrew@gmail.com

Good tip, thanks…

I can see the SF GPMG, but no 81mm mortar crew… Only the 2" guy in the platoon HQ. Am I missing something?

He does the FV432 mortar. I thought he did the Briish infantry mortar too. Send him an email, he's very amenable. I'm sure he could sort you out some British mortars. He does them for Dutch and Canadians. Maybe use the forward observers pack for mortar crews, and he'll probably sell you some of the 432 mortar crew with bomb as extras. Alternatively use the Canadian crew and do head swops.
