What was happened with 7th figure from TQD-BR7 ?

What was happened with 7th figure from TQD-BR7 ?

Postby TommyGn » 07 Aug 2013

Some time ago I saw that initially set of british Mediterranean infantry has 7 soldiers. So what was happened with 7th figure [charging with bayonet :duel: ] from set TQD-BR7 1941-43 MED THEATRE BRITISH INFANTRY ??? I like it very much. :clap:
I sometime not happy with poses mixed in TQD british sets. It is in TQD-BR7 too. I don’t like that together are soldiers in long trousers and jackets and one pose in shorts and shirt. For me it look like rather as soldiers from different units.
I hope, that this 7th soldier was removed, because there were too many figures in set [most of them have till 5]. So maybe You could remove both these guys in shorts and add to them another three Tommies in shorts, and do next sets. I think it cold be nice strength up for desert sets from WarTime.

PS
I just bought my first four sets of british and I'm really impressive :wave:

Hi Tommy

Glad you were happy with the figures you bought always nice to hear :grin:

To be honest this is a set I wasn't happy with the mix of trousers and shorts in the one set but as far as I am aware it as always been a six figure set, so I tended to use the guys wearing shorts as random variants with this set

I have decided to change TQD-BR07 to a five figure set with them all wearing trousers and sell the two guys in shorts as a new two figure set TQD-BR8 making them available on their own for now

Thanks for the feedback

Thank You. BR8 will very worth to buy, but maybe its good moment to expand it to 4-5 figures with more poses, if old sculptor is available. :hello:

OK BR8 is officially on site. So maybe 3 more desert Tommies as BR9 :wave:
There is in my opinion, another reason to split old BR7. Boys in short look very fighting :duel: , and in trousers rather marching or patroling. And most of all this excellent 7th figures was unemployed.
So I think I buy BR8 at least twice :grin: . And BR7 too. ;)

Hi Guys

Glad you like the re-working of the sets

It would be nice to add some reinforcements to the med theatre British but I know Tony is tied up at present and once he is free he is going to be working on our current Fall of Berlin group build but once that is sorted out it's definatly a possibility

Would anybody be interested in a future group build featuring med/desert theatre british and their adversaries ?

More thread necromancy! Sorry, I was going to just add a new topic asking my question, but it seemed sort of relevant to add it here....

Just wondering if there was any further developments in adding to the Med/Desert Brits line at all? A couple more in shorts, perhaps, or the addition of a Boys AT rifle or other support weapons...

Yes it is something I would like to do.

Unfortunately I have been tied up with 28mm projects lately, maybe later this year if Tony is available to do them.

I think that now is good time to release more desert Tommies, because btg Tobruk has been printed.
As I said: maybe 3 more desert Tommies as BR9 :wave: - in atacking poses similar to BR8. I think that Bren gunner with section will be fine choice. There is no such like it.
