Lovely, full of character.

They are indeed, I got them a month ago and painted them up to basic wargaming standard, just waiting for a day to finish off the second unit and command for photographing..
They're already seen action on the field of battle for our H'ford VBCW event.
Excellent service from Empress to boot.

Very cool figs indeed! I would even use some of those for WW1 (GASP!) But I really would, might need just a tiny bit of converting, but I doubt any one I game with would care at all

I already have more naval landing parties than I can ever use, but these do look to good pass up. I just ordered the Warlord set.
I like the pose of the Lewis gun being held by bipod. Nice to have ammo carrier too.

Bob – these fit in nicely with the Warlord ones, and yes the Lewis gunner is a gem.

Ceterman – yes it has crossed my brain cell that these would be suitable for WW1 and RCW interventionists (e.g. Riga)

Just need some with Cutlasses and Pistols (yes, when they boarded the Altmark, they took cutlasses with them! Apparently it was the last time on record) and a set with Lanchesters and you have all options covered.

I have no use for these beautiful figures, yet I want them!

hurrahbro, I was thinking the same about cutlass and SMG, but Lanchesters were not used until 1941. For inter war, VBCW, and early WW2, perhaps tommy gun would be better. This in keeping with the time frame of Lewis, instead of Bren in service.

No Thompsons for the RN, they were in short supply until 1941 for the British Army.

Wouldn't a pack with Lanchesters and Brens extend their use through to the end of WW2?
