the assault group has entered the building!
I would like to say it right on the begining. I have nothing to do with
TAG at all, I've only ordered one order. But wow, I love them! They
mostly produce historical wargaming stuff that I don't play, but I'll
surely go back and buy some russians and all once I get around to gaming
chechen wars. Or something. I like those MVD russians with visors. And
the rest of the SWAT guys. The rest, you ask? Well, I got the best pack
Miniatures came as they always do, in a nice carboard box with some
filling to keep the minies safe. This is what was in the packet:
Oh, yeah, sorry for blurry pics again. I blame the enthusiasm this time!
If I go on to minies themselves, they're made somewhat basic, compared to, say Hasslefree minies, but we must keep in mind, they're also much cheaper. Some of the weapons seem a bit small, for example one of the DELTA guys...but most of the miniatures seem pretty good to me. Detail is decent, eyes on some of the faces are a bit "hidden", but that can probably be fixed with a basecoat. I've bought a great variety of different pacs, but If you'd buy from same range...say, 4 packs of SWAT guys, you'd notice that they got same bodies, yet there are not two that would be the same.
I've decided to make a purchase because now I have a decent number of survivors to support my gaming. I could also buy some of the marines or british soldiers for the army, but I will go with SAS guys I bought for now. Then I will either keep it that way or I will go with eureka's germans. Honestly, I think I'll just use SWAT for the "hard hitting" hunters.
The biggest gem in my order are the weapons. TAG sells them at 10 per pack, but Pete said I could mix as I'd want. I REALLY felt bad because I took horrible advantage over his kindness, but now I got such a great mixture of weapons that my survivors will acutally be able to find a 3D gun while searching the house. The downside of the idea is, that I need to get myself some furniture!
Well, thanks yet again for reading, I hope someone finds the short review useful. I will now go and base all the minies, diploma can wait. Then I will probably go make some sandbag emplacements and defenses so I can play "defend" scenario from NMRIH. With .50 cal emplacements. It doesn't get much cooler if you ask me!
oh and it's Lord Siwoc's birthday today!
