Here are some pics of my 28mm Cold War British:

They are a mix of Mongrel Miniatures, Sloppy Jalopy, HLBS and an Arii Chieftain. The Scorpions/Scimitars have magnetized interchangeable gun barrels.
They are for my homebrew set of Cold War rules based loosely on Bolt Action.

Very nice, and at Saltau judging by the mud. Excellent work.

Nice, but in the lower phot the Chieftain track looks to be fitted far too low,

Tally Ho!

You are correct about the track. Unfortunately as the model is a remote control version it isn't too accurate but a reasonable approximation.

Very nice! It's interesting that the BAOR had almost the same camo in the 80s as the BEF in 1940.

Sorry to be a pain mate, but I've just noticed your mortar barrel and bipod and SF kit tripod should be black. Not that it really matters, only a spotter like myself would notice.

Really nice- 28mm is great for these old eyes!

@foxweasel: Thanks for the info, I can easily change that.

@GROSSMAN: Yes Private Jenkins is an accident waiting to happen.
