Terry Taliban

I got the last of my Taliban insurgents done this weekend. A lot of them have combat jackets and ammunition pouches, so they aren't your local Fighting Age Males, unemployed after the harvest and given 200 bucks and an AK to go shoot at the feringhees. These chaps are more Tier 1 insurgents. Some more local force insurgents are something to get when I can afford to buy some more.

But here they are:
Courier, mobile observer, suicide bomber or just a civilian? Who knows?
A pair of suicide bombers
Sniper and SA7 launcher
Heavy machine gun team
Recoilless rifle team
Fighters and leaders
Here's the complete force:

6x 4 man fire teams each with two rifle, one LMG and one man with either a UGL or RPG plus 5 leaders. All supported by a recoilless rifle, HMG, SA7, sniper and 2 suicide bombers. I could give them technicals, but I don't think they were much in evidence in the Panjwayi district while the Canadians were there. All are Elheim Figures.

Not a bad little force to start, if somewhat outgunned by all the LAVs!

I'm being quite pleased with how this building that I made for my 28mm NW Frontier stuff looks beside my 20mm Taliban.


  1. Good stuff, James. They look great. Very clever of you to repurpose your Colonial scenery for Afghanistan. Good economy of effort.
    All you need now is a set of rules. Hope Fighting Season comes out soon.

    1. Oh I still need lots of terrain! Fields, compounds, finish the ditches and grape hits....
