Looking good!
Alas my set is on the to do list,although I am painting up the metal mini's from the expansion's when the project I'm working on gets to much.

The smle sniper rifle & the De Lisle silenced carbine are a nice touch although I'm not sure about the radio.

One complaint is with the expansion's is you get 4 head's with each expansion,
The operation torchlight ex has 4 heads whereing mk2 helmet's with camo but you need 6 to use the all the cards.
The guards of facility 9 have 4 heads wearing gas masks and you need 5!.

Great project Anton!

Looking forward to your painting progress (and btw, the figs here look good as you've assembled them – with nice, fluid motion captured).

Thanks guys!

I'm at a bit of a crossroads as far as painting goes. Commandos and SAS both dressed a great deal alike (and apparently had very few regulations when on actual operations) the difference being mostly in camo pattern and the color of the beret. I have a box of European Partisans that I also plan on adding to the mix. I have to hope that one of the future expansions provides the characters from 'Allo 'Allo!

The Germans will be easier

Great figures. As airborne, in WWII they wore the Denison smock and maroon beret. The white and then sand beret belongs at their founding and post war.

They also have paratrooper helmets.

Nice review of the release here also, which shows just what comes in the box, still on its sprue
