Default Iraq figures from Master Box

Shalom.

For you modellers of the Middle East wars there is good news. Master Box has just released two sets of figures for the Iraq war. Iraq 1 is four figures of US troops http://www.mbltd.info/3575.htm Iraq 2 is four Iraq insurgents but one of those figures is a non-combatant boy. http://www.mbltd.info/3576.htm

The Iraq 2 set figures could be used as Hamas or Hezbollah figures.

Master Box also recently released a North African Commonwealth Tank Crew set of figures that has a camel and an Arab camel rider. that camel and rider is well worth the price of the entire figure set. It is WW2 after Montgomery took command as he is in the set too. http://www.mbltd.info/3564.htm

Cheers from Peter

More insurgents are always welcome, of course. Now if we could just get some modern soldiers sitting on top of tanks and APCs, I'd be delighted.

That looks more like Palestinians than Iraqis. :) I like the tank and camel rider!

I've been away for a while due to health issues and was also trying to recover from death in the family.

You're right that those figures do look more like Palestinians. I need to get a set of them for a couple of diorams/vignettes I want to create.

Master Box is really great at creating figures sets in eras that modellers want. They have released a number of Vietnam Era figure sets that look really good.

If you email Master Box with a wish list of figures they will respond to you via email and possibly produce such figures if there is enough interest.

Do troops still ride on tanks in modern armies?

Cheers

Sad to hear about that, death in the family is always hell to deal with.

Yes, modern troops ride in tanks but IFV's are battle taxis, the Russians excel at it although Israelis and Americans have the edge in technology as such.

Asians have good IFV's also.
