Anyone fancying a little "Blackhawk Down?" If so, you've got to pick these troops up from Jimmi at Flashpoint Minis. It's a great pack, with twenty-one figures in nine different poses! I painted them up as outlandishly as I could stand, with a wild mix of lots of bright colors with various pieces of camouflage uniform items. There are some really good poses, very dynamic and realistic, and the figures are robust, sizing up with Battlefront. The troops have great weapons, easily recognizable and relevant to the period, though there's a couple miscasts, and I would have loved to have seen the G-3 in addition to the AKs, RPDs, RPGs, and M-16s. Now, having said that about the miscasts, I want to point out I picked these up from Scale Creep Minis, when Mark was holding a sale in order to clear out some old inventory. My point is two-fold: one, I've spoken to Jimmi, and part of the clearing out old inventory is that he's really working hard on quality control in order to ensure all the sculpts are 100%, and two, even with a slim RPG rocket and a couple missing AK front sight posts, I'm happy to have the troops in my inventory, might even pick up some more. So let's get to them!
I highly recommend the figures for Somalia and other African 15mm gaming, they're very well representative (in my opinion) and easily recognizable.
