I finally got my orders in and i have ordered more models for the Taliban and i have got them in too here recently. What i got was models from Khursan ,MJ models plus ill will be showing the rest of the Flytraps Taliban support cell set, beside the excellent rifles so far the best sculpt of the Lee riflemen out their that i have seen for the Taliban,.Also in the piks are some Old glory Miltia with Stingers and a KHursan model of one.One of the  things that surprises me that no one makesis a  15mm Cold War USA and a Taliban Stinger MANPADS operator/gunner model.But the Good people at MJ figs makes the kewlest range of assecories   15 mm weapons modern and ww2 type and one thing i did find was the British MAnpAds blowpipe system.So it looks like i will be doing some converting some models.http://mjfigures.co.uk/product-category/15mm/15mm-accessories/

Starting a Taliban Force for 15mm Cold war gone Hot

As the title states i been workig on putting together a Insurgent/ Terrorist force for are are home brew Cold war game. Why is called a Homebrew because we are using 3 rules sets, FOW NAm, Team YAnkee and The Stopping the Red Tide rules.
 Since my options for Taliban figs are limited kinda. I decided to go with Fly trap Factory,http://www.flytrapfactory.com/
  Khursan minatures  http://khurasanminiatures.tripod.com/
  MJ figs  http://mjfigures.co.uk/
  So i have half assed worked the rules and force org. i loosely based them off of the NVA forces from the NAm intel boooks.
   So here is a few piks of the models i am currently basing, nxt i will post piks of the weapons teams and the basing and some of the rules we are using.As for points we kinda threw them out the door but may just end up using the NVA points  for them.
 
Khurasan  AK 47  TAliban

Khurasan Enfield BA riflemen

Squad leaders

Flytrap Suicide Bombers and Snipers

Fly trap Enfield riflemen
As for the moment the models in  the piks are khurasan and fly trap. Flytraps are the rounded bases FYI. both  companies scupts were excellent and a extra shout out to Khursan for the replacements for some of my peanut head USa weapon teams.My next post will also have the other 2 squads from MJ figs.  tanks for checking it out

Cold War Command Vehicle

I bought the BAnnons Boyz  Starter set and as a bonus the set come with a M113 hHQ objective.
  Since i was kinda liking the look  of the APC ,i went a ahead and bought the NAm undeployed version  as a HQ command Vehicle.
 With alittle converson work i have my Command APc for my MECh infan


try.
 As for the objective model i will be using it for a command for my 155  SP  guns.
  here is the piks of of the model blister contents and after piks of my conversion.
Overall i was happy with the model all of the contents were included and the sculpt was free bad flash,

Seal Team for TEam Yankee,Rebels Minis review US Special forces.

Well i Kinda gave up on the 28mm Models, i guess i couldnt get back into the scale.I think i got the 15mm bug worse than i thought.
  So switched over to 15mm Bolt action. Which was easy to because i already a decent amount of left over models from Flames of War. Here in the future i will post some piks of the forces.
 I also got a good deal on a indoor outdoor fake grass mat that is now the new grounfd for gaming table i got a good deal i think a 9x6 for 36 dollars at my local farm supply store.I think i looks great,especialy better than the old house carpet that i was using. But the price was rite. I garbage pick it from a friends house.So it didnt smell like Cat pee.
 Now n to what i have been currently working on. Since we were getting a little burned out.We decieded to start playing our House version of Team Yankee.
  So far i dont have alot but we got three players. Me USa Mech infantry,A Soviet Air assault player and a Insurgent,Militia, ISIS type of Force also. For them we are just going to be porting over alot of the VIetcong rules.
  Also Why House rule style.Alot of the rules and units not included in the TEam YAnkee rule will be ported over from other settings in particular the NAm rules alittle modded for example.Also for points it will be what me and fellow players call good enough ? look good too you agreement.So no points system for now.
  ere is one of my USa Platoons i been  fiddling with here lately is the USa special forces set from rebel mini.The rifles looked more like m16s than m5 or m 4 carbines
  http://www.rebelminis.com/15mm-modern-milita.html
  I bought the platoon pack heavy weapons and the Sniper pack.
    The Platoon packs has a assortment of weapons, Shot gun, Smg and rifles.Weapons pack have the At 4, Stinger and SAW. Sniper pack has the standerd Bolt action rifle and one of my favs the BArret 50 cal. and yes the Seal teams have been known to use the Stinger and At4
 As for rules i will just be porting the SEAL rules over from Brown Water NAvy.  But one of the kewl
things i will be doing here soon is buying 4 Loach/Little Bird Choppers for them as transport,Heck i may  even build 2 more little birds and turn them into gunships so the can hane their own dedicated Air support.
Sniper teams

Stinger At 4

Rifle Platoon with command and Saw
Overall the models from rebel were clean from excess flash, the mold lines were very little and also a good price.
Overall very good crisp looking sculpts i would recommend theese models for a gamer who i looking for a product like this for their games.Also scale up nice next to Peter pigs AK 47 range and Old Glory Command decision.
 TAnks for chexing this out.
