As the title says, today I'm bringing you the oposing forces to my Spanish ISAF soldiers. All of them are from Empress. Superbly sculpted, I have tried to make them justice.
You will see I have used a limited palette. This is made on purpose, as Afghan people don't tend to wear a great variety of colours on their clothes, nor gaudy designs (but for special occasions or celebrations, which, of course, is not the case). So you will see the classic shalwar kameez, some vests and a few military clothes, taken from the ANA, Western forces or who knows where from.
OK, now the pics!
|Mortar team. Dreadful indeed|
|Cavalry to the rescue!|
|Shooter and spotter|
And a variety of Afghan guys with a combination of weapons:
And a final group shot:
|Demonstration at the local town hall|
As I have not still read any rules for gaming with these people, I was not sure of how many models was I going to need, but I guess these will be more than enough for a start. You can see they are heavily armoured and have a large variety of weapons. I hope this will give me different options for a number of scenarios. I also have a couple of vehicles (one per side), I'll try to show them as soon as I can.
I'm using the Skirmish Sangin ruleset, so I'll let you know when I read the book and begin to plan some action. Hope it is anytime soon!
