--Does anyone have any decent photos of the D-Boys when they were involved in Operation Gothic Serpent?
I'm going to bash a figure but want to make it as realistic as possible - I've seen photos in which some guys were wearing tan boots and others were they appear to be wearing Danner types.
Any help much appreciated
Have you seen the film BLACK HAWK DOWN?
Have you seen the BHD inspired figures by DAM?
I'm not a well versed military expert like some of the guys here, but it all depends on the operator load out/preferences.
AFAIK, there is no 1000% accurate without any exception must be true answer short of a real life DELTA operator stating what was used in the field during that period.
All the various figures we've seen throughout the years is a depiction based on research, but there is no absolute anally correct version.
As of late, I've seen some members come off hung up on the whole it must be accurate damn it approach and perhaps losing sight of just customizing/kit bashing it to the best of their abilities and then post/share and take it from their.
Any figure we customize/kit bash can always be revised and never set in stone.
Just my $.02.
I have a fair number of 1:6 DELTA operators wearing black and tan boots based on their load out variances.
My rule of thumb is this. If the operators are geared up for a "direct action", then black danner boots.
If they're out in the desert field doing recon or trying to blend in with the natives so to speak, then tan color boots.
It's not the most accurate or precise rule of thumb, but it works for me.
