Under Fire Miniatures
I have just painted up a batch of the Rhodesian African Rifles 20mm figures by Under Fire Miniatures. The figures are sculpted by Tony and are absolutely brilliant. Very accurate! I have put grass on the bases so I am going to call it the rainy season. Need to get some dry grasses for my bases! The next series of figure batches I am going to file down the rolled up sleeves and thus paint the majority of the figures with their sleeves rolled down.
The beauty of these figures is that they can be painted up as RhSAS or RR, RLI and probably dismounted Greys Scouts. They would also do for the BSAP Support Unit the ‘Black Boots’. In some cases you may have to remove the sleeping bags.
On external ops RhSAS armed with FN would carry sleeping bag in their large burgens. Burgens would be left in a laying up area and then they would move forward to their ambush positions or OPs etc in light order. Uniforms where the same colour as FRELIMO or ZANLA. Rhodesian camouflage was worn during the larger ops. Thus RhSAS can be produced from these figures.
