    I’ve been looking to add to my Eureka 20mm Australians to use not only as Aussies but also as British for Burma. Eureka do Australians in slouch hats (bush hats) and steel helmets and I’ve wanted to add more figures in helmets, so I was really pleased when AB produced a range of British in tropical uniforms suitable for the mediterranean and for the Far East.

    As always these are lovely figures.

    The figures are not a perfect match for the Eureka figures who suffer from large heads and stockier proportions. It’s not a deal breaker but there is a noticeable difference when you compare them side by side.

    Lovely painting and basing on some of the best figures out there. To me AB Figures always look in proportion, without the big heads and hands often seen with other ranges.

    They are superb. Really want to do forces for Burma – listing to the audio version of Burma ‘44 by James Holland at the moment.

    Very nice.  I too am looking forward to doing some (more) CoC in Burma.  Have you tried the Pyawbwe campaign?

    Thanks Mark. No, I haven’t tried that yet although I think I have a copy somewhere. Next I think we might try the Opium Hill campaign that Mark Backhouse wrote for WSS magazine. It’s set in Singapore so for that I would actually use my early war figures in shorts and khaki drill.
