First castings from the Master mould
Various Rifle section figures, will choose 9 of these to go into the pack








Two of the Officer/NCO figures from the pack, the third with a M1 carbine with folding stock is done just no room in the mould for it.



The BAR team



Production moulds will be run up over January. .30 cal bipod version in the works.

And they actually have necks too!
(these are fine-looking sculpts)

Lovely bubbly! You'll have to excuse my ignorance of nomenclature but is this the D Day uniform or the later one?

Leon,
Beautiful and tempting! You beat AB to the punch, as if he would have made American Para's years ago I wouldn't be gaming WW II in 15mm now, and sold off most of my 20mm unpainted stuff a few years ago.

Frothers Did It And Ran Away its the later uniform, US paras were requipped when they got back from D-Day operations with the new M43 uniform so this would have been the one worn for Market Garden, Bulge and Rhine Crossing.

VonBlucher well one of the nice things about WW2 in 20mm is you can always go for skirmish games.
Did them as there seemed to be a gap in the ranges out there, if a maker already makes a range in the M42 a bit much to ask them to do a M43 range as well.

Those are excellent Leon!

Great job Leon. Please keep the first kneeling figure; he'll be a great extra crewman for Chain of Command games. All of my WW2 are 20mm. More, more I'm never satisfied!

Wonderful

Excellent figures. I like all of them. Again, tho', I have to suggest a few prone figures.

LeonAdler Sponsoring Member of TMP01 Jan 2018 10:08 a.m. PST

Love to add prone figs but will depend entirely on sales justifying the design work.

Leon:

Excellent figures

Certainly are! 2018 Adler will be the 20mm project along with AB, very timely thumbs up

Cheers,

Where do I send money?

' keep the first kneeling figure; he'll be a great extra crewman'

That one is probably going into the rifle grenade figure pack, should be easy enough to remove the grenade I think.

George Buzby, when they up and running they will be up on the website and announced on here.

Great work.
As usual Leon.

genew49 Supporting Member of TMP02 Jan 2018 2:28 p.m. PST

A rifle grenade pack would be great. I don't think removing the grenade will be an issue. After all i once cut the head off of an Airfix zoo bear and put it onto an Airfix astronaut's body. Voila, Space Bear! Of course my eyesight was much better 50+ years ago.
