I sat myself down and finished painting the rest of the minis from the 02 Hundred Hours Starter Box, they really are some very good stuff that properly captures the "bored sentry" about to be surprised by the "dashing lads of the SAS".

Nice. Much nicer than I could have done.

Those look great!

Very nicely done. You Sir, are not a clumsy painter. I wouldn't change the heads of the guys with eye wear. They look fine just the way they are. For the record, I like the chunkiness of Dixon figures!

They look great – especially like the Feldgendarmes!

Nice work!

Nice looking figures, but if these are suppose to be British Commandos, they should have green berets on, the maroon ones were for the Paratroopers.

Lookin' great Anton! (you're a wiz with painting hair too)

Thanks for the kind words everyone

I don't do WW2 generally so I was going with what I had found re: the SAS. With all the spare heads I momentarily thought of using magnets and swapping the heads off (you will notice that I dodged the question and used the knitted caps for most of the minis). My main area of interest is Sicily/Italy/southern France so I am open to help with who wore what hat (I am likely to be buying the expansion boxes so will have other minis to paint in different color berets)

SAS berets are beige, paratroopers maroon, Royal marine & army commandos green

Now I'm thinking that I should magnetize the heads and swap them out as needed for the mission. Either that or switch them all to the service neutral knit cap. Berets always struck me as particularly unsuited for combat.

Looking great!

Stick with knit caps. I wouldn't want anything colourful attracting the eye of a sentry behind enemy lines even if it is 0200!
