Were there any particular playsets that you really wanted when you were younger?
Paradropping first into the new thread (Sorry for keeping on posting this, I will make a new video once I get back to my home country)
>>9475713Some new pic for you: recent purchase
>>9475731It's from the army Jumbo Pack, it's got your generic British paratroopers with 2 German poses in classic Green and Tan, featuring the uncommon tan tent, 2 tan tanks, tan jeep, tan barbed wires and sandbag emplacement. The greens are mirrored except for the tent, which is perfect because I have already bought one :) (solo green tent on the Internet)
>>9475738Was pleasantly shocked to find these at the mall, as I expect the shitty army men from experience
>>9475741here is the Tan camp unpacked, what made it worth it for me
>>9475747It's fun to set up the tanks and jeep in convoy
>>9475759The whole bag unpacked. Quite decent and large for less than $20. Like I said I have more toys at home, and enough to make a mass Green paradrop (~8 troopers)
>>9475738Nice to see that old Centurion tank model still kicking around. Some larger, silver versions were among the first army men tanks I ever owned, standing in as a generic tank for all sides (flag stickers on top rear of the hull differentiated them). Their three-piece design made them fun to destroy: with the classic Patton tank of Timmee fame you can only blow the turret off really, and sometimes not even that.
>>9474712One Christmas while were living oversaes I got pic related from grandma who was staying with us for the holidays - don't think I asked for it or even knew it existed prior, but I was certainly thrilled and a great many conflicts featured that glorious flattop. Mine was the Canadian version, the only differences being the flag on the island and CAF markings on the two jets, which I believe I still have somewhere. Sadly I made the tough decision to discard the carrier rather than having it make one last trans-Atlantic crossing with us back Canada which I've come to regret immensely, though by that point it was in pretty bad shape.
>>9476274Still have what remains of the pilots and aircrew (the blue guys in pic), they were more fragile than most of my other army men and several broke over the years.
>>9476278>Still have what remains of the pilots and aircrewYay!
>>9476996They haven't seen much action since the scrapping of their floating home, they're slightly smaller than the average army men and are very specialized, limited to airbases and the like. I did get myself another carrier from a garage sale, though it's much smaller, missing its island and more suited to micro machines.
>>9485127A few threads back an anon identified them as Marx West Point Cadets, didn't think to check that until now but they're actually Marx Dress Marines; mine are KOs I got years ago, can't remember where anymore but probably a dollar store.
>>9486371They look awesome, knockoffs are underrated
>>9476264>Centurion tankI bought 10 of them greens in January
>>9494467to match with a soldier platoon
>>9474712First time posting.I found some canadian dudes at the dollar store and got curious enough to paint one.i like them.
>>9495010>canadianThey're Highlanders. Brilliant paint job
>>9495630Canada has Highlander regiments.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canadian-Scottish_regiment
>>9495648Known, but these are specifically molds from the British Eighth Army which served in Africa by Matchbox
>>9497641True, though they can still stand in for Canadian soldiers.
>>9498104Agreed. Same kit and Canadian troops also have bagpipes.
>>9498152These other 8th Army soldiers in tan have always served as my Canadians, first got them over 25 years ago now, damn I'm getting old heh.
>>9476274I still see them occasionally in wally worlds. Someone is still making them.
>>9498259Interesting, it's a Timmee product and they're still going strong but I haven't seen them selling the carrier in a long time.
Just finished a post on some background for my imaginary 19th century army men world, covering major nations, important units, and flags: https://www.atthequeenscommand.com/imagi-nation-pelia-part-1/
>>9476274I would be tempted to get one as substitute for the USS Flagg. Put it as backround prop or far away shots from a plane or helicopter.
>>9522556info on that artillery piece?
Heh, forgot I did this a few years ago.
>>9474712I cant afford best quality, but i like my soldiers as they are. They are brave men. I have a notebook, and make up characters for them and write name/rank under their feet, and even their role but just in the notebook pretending it's enlistment information and documentation.
>>9549407And again, i screw up imgposting.
