Excellent looking unit!

They would look great on any tabletop battlefield.

Very kind

Richard, how do you find the Warrior figures? Images are hard to find and l have read that they are on the large side but in your photos they look like they match quite well. For the price they are hard to beat.

I order direct, they do vary, some sculpts are God-awful, some are fine – the cavalry are superb IMHO :)

Richard, you certainly get the "thinking out of the box" award. I like a lot of the Force20 figs, especially the mounted Bedouin scout/warrior, for various scenarios but would never have considered using the Force20 OSS guy as an SCW guerilla! Do you use their Moroccan Mehalla figures in your games? The whole lot looks quite nice.

Two thumbs up!

I do own their mehalla, I painted them as a tribal Moroccans for my Rif War project.

To be honest i only bought the resistance set for one figure – a female radio operator (quite rare in 20mm), the rest joined the SCW militia, but i did swap SMGs out for rifles – quite rare during the SCW :)

The female radio operator is a wonderful figure… quite unique. She works well for WWII and many interwar scenarios. Would be great to see pics of your painted Mehalla.

There are some interesting figures in the Force20 diorama packs. The Royal Geographic Explorers (forerunners to LRDG) are unique and so are the Gangsters and Spies. The Gangsters and Spies figure with the mauser pistol and the country fellow loading the shotgun have many uses. I also really like the British SOE Advisor figure from the resistance fighters pack. (think I am going to use him in a scenario as a guide with some RM Commandos.) Although a different theater entirely, the Kachin Tribesmen are quite nice; although not nearly as versatile.
