More pound store plastic warrior packaging

Combat Mission 100 soldiers, 36mm height, bought online for a couple of  pounds. The header art gives some idea that modern troops, possibly British or American are inside. Close to green and tan, Two Colour armies in one bag.

Some very familiar poses amongst these 36mm figures. Combat Mission.

Some very familiar poses here, having been converting my Poundland sourced versions of these twelve poses of 36mm figures over the last few weeks.

One difference in this Combat Mission 100 Soldiers bag is the mixture of green and pale red figures, which are almost tan brown colour compared to the Poundland deeper red version. This gives effectively two small armies or units in one bag, the familiar modern “toy army men” green and tan colours, rather than one colour army / soldiers per tub in Poundland.

The Combat Mission packaging is a little different from the Poundland tubs and certainly different from the stylish mixed colour figure box of Retro Toys “WW2 soldiers”, attractive packaging but not so many figures for more money!   https://poundstoreplasticwarriors.wordpress.com/2017/10/26/retro-packaging/

The Combat Mission header is something fairly standard, found on previous lucky seaside hauls of 54mm figures.

Fun Toys! Quite bright but simple packaging from JaRu c. 2006 for these 54mm modern TimMee style Troops. Painted in toy soldier fashion, these modern weapons give this a Steampunk VSF look.j

Meanwhile, back at the painting bench, more 36mm pound store conversions underway …

Hello I'm Mark Mr MIN, Man of TIN. Based in S.W. Britain, I'm a lifelong collector of "tiny men" and old toy soldiers, whether tin, lead or childhood vintage 1960s and 1970s plastic figures. I randomly collect all scales and periods and "imagi-nations" as well as lead civilians, farm and zoo animals. I enjoy the paint possibilities of cheap poundstore plastic figures as much as the patina of vintage metal figures. Befuddled by the maths of complex boardgames and wargames, I prefer the small scale skirmish simplicity of very early Donald Featherstone rules. To relax, I usually play solo games, often using hex boards. Gaming takes second place to making or convert my own gaming figures from polymer clay (Fimo), home-cast metal figures of many scales or plastic paint conversions. I also collect and game with vintage Peter Laing 15mm metal figures, wishing like many others that I had bought more in the 1980s ...
