Thanks guys. :)

Great figures Karl! That last photo btw, what headsculpt did you use?
Thats a good question, bought it several months ago at eBay, as far as I can remember it was listet as "custom head". I have a look around if I am able to find the head again, Ill post you the link.

You really went out there to produce these guys. A great group.

Karl that's a good looking group of Tangos you've got there. For a little variety have you considered maybe adding a female fighter or maybe an Arab Mujahideen volunteer? Some of your guys could pass for Arab fighters but none of them have any articles of clothing or gear that obviously marks them as Arab fighters. It's just a thought but perhaps you might want to consider adding a shemagh or a head band with Arabic script or some other identifying item to one of your guys. If this sounds like something that might interest you then you can find some good information concerning Arab and volunteers of other ethnicities and mercenaries in Chechnya on these pages:

Thanks for the suggestions and links, yes those were some ideas I had in my mind, I made an female resister for the first chechen war inspired by the one santopapa has made: http://www.onesixthwarriors.com/for...irst-chechen-war-chechen-fighters-grozny.html
Sadly the Sarah Connor head is the only head I know of that has those "eastern facial features". For headbands my painting / writing skills for arabic letters / words are way to bad and maybe the result would be that there would be an manual how to build a fridge instead of the meaning allah is the greatest or holy war etc. ;) So I tried to make them look as much as chechen as possible. Would be cool if some company would take the subject of Opposing Forces like 21st Century did for example.

If you can get a hold of HT The Boss head sculpt, you can make a White Tights figure off of it. It fits the description of the Baltic snipers said to have fought in Chechnya. I considered it before (being blonde that is), as the features are perfect for a female fighter (i.e. stone-faced, hardy, among other adjectives) compared to most of the female head sculpts out there.

EDIT: monkeydepot has one available right now
