Thanks! We've had a good time with them so far. When I get a minute I want to paint up a batch in blue & white.

Will you be doing Black Flag rebels to oppose them in Indochina?

Yes paint them in blue and white.

I love this new line from Askari!! I want to paint up both early and late war uniforms, I've already got some of both in Dixon.

Nick, great question. That would be awesome if Al made Black Flag and Chinese troops to go with this range.

I do like your Australian range except for a couple of the sculpts with sten guns, and the bush hat pinned on the right like a German.

@Wargamer Blue--

I think you mean the NCO with the Stirling gun?

That's been mentioned before. I've decided to keep it in the catalog in case someone wants it for post-war operations but it's an option otherwise. I don't include it unless someone requests it.

Regarding the hat: you got me on that one! There is one figure with a right side pin-up--the assistant on the Boys team. I'll have to fix that. My bad--don't blame the sculptor.

A little background on Australian headgear: When doing the research, I found the hat pinned up and sometimes with additional decoration only worn on parade. In the field most pictures show the helmet. The Aussies weren't stupid. When I did see the hat, it was unpinned (down) on both sides. The better, I suppose, to shade one from the sun. And most of the hats I saw worn were in the jungle.

Again, thanks for the note. No one commented on that before.

They are a great range. I was going to get some for Australian Militia in New Guinea. The only thing that stopped me buying was those few oddities.
