Just drop me a message and we'll get them sorted.

For some on who is no expert in modern warfare, arn't EGP1 and EGP2 armed the same?

Egyptians (Waistcoat type)
EGP1   Advancing with AK47 (2 poses)
EGP2   Advancing with Kalashnikov


Quite right.

From memory i think the differnce was that EGP1 would be in the assault jerkin.  I will check with Leon.

In all seriousness could we include

Youths throwing stones/ petrol bombs
PLO type figures in headscarves. with assorted weapons.

I am thinking a single pack with say.  

Firing AK47  
Moving AK47  
Rifle
Rifle with spare RPG rounds x2
RPG

Perhaps they could be made as a half way to making the main masters. Ie before they are covered in  Army webbing. they could them be painted up as civies if needed

For Egypt 1973, your main AA systems are:
Sa-7 teams allocated at brigade and army level
ZSU-23-4
57mm S60
twin 23mm ZU-23-2
85mm KS12
100mm KS19

For other armies, the 14.5mm ZPU-1/2/4 AAHMG are probably more common than 12.7mm AAHMG, along with 37mm M39 AA.

Having said that, we need the 37mm M39 AA, 85mm AA and 12.7mm AAHMG for WW2 Russians, so making one would easily be converitble to the other, if not identical.

Sorry, Phil and I have no interest in a plethora of heavy kit/vehicles. Not in our paygrade/ figures brief. What we do know is that gamers do not like units off the table, so little demand for the SA2/3/6 that were the backbone of Arab AAA umbrella.  ZSU-23 is vunerable to small arms fire, nevermind the Centurions it will be sharing a table with.
 An estimated 4,000+ SA7 rockets were fired which suggests wide deployment at battalion level following the Soviet model.

Question remains, if Pendraken produce SA7team and Dshkm in  simpleAA mount, will the aveage gamer fighting a glorified skirmish, buy them?

Also the 4,000 odd fired had a very low kill ratio. Which suggests poor training/ineffective against fast jets. Is this reflected in rules?

Thanks again

I hope so.  We've been talking to our local council's Brexit transition team and the Crisis show would be a nightmare currently.  All of the stock needs to be exported/imported into Belgium, plus all of the stand equipment (racking/tills/display figures) has to be declared as non-sale items.  Then the same has to be done to leave Belgium after the show, with the possibility of them emptying the whole van at the side of the road to check it over.  We'd have to register in Belgium and pay someone to take care of our VAT payments there.  And finally all of us would need green cards and visas in order to travel there!

Sounds like a complete non-starter.

Isn't ExCeL currently serving the nation as Nightingale (London) plus mass vaccination centre.
It'll take a while to get that decommmed and ready for normal usage.


I believe they were planned to be there for at least a year.  So yes they ae unlikely to be closed on March 31st, They may be 'put in mothballs' if we ae over this spike by then, but i doubt they will be decommissioned fully until after the vaccine rollout is complete.  Due to the amount of effort to put them in in the first place. The government would be mad to close them completely until we have Covid fully under control.

I just wonder if they are paying for them or have requisitioned them as a national emergency.

Good to see that the lockdown hasn't reduced our ability for bad puns... 

They're on the schedule to be revamped a bit but we've still got the moulds here if you'd like some straightaway.  Just drop me a message and we'll get them sorted.

That gives Grumpy old man a 'ray' of hope
