...and while I had those particular colours on the table

...I started a couple of Empress Miniatures US Rangers. They are all lovely little sculpts but the Ranger carrying a wounded comrade is a little 'tour de force' and the reason I bought several of the sets.  I think the British and American (MTP and OCP respectively) may differ in pattern and colour tone but on a 28-32mm miniature they look the same (IMHO and for my own convenience!). These two (three?) and several others will make up a small vignette.

WIP: White Dragon 32mm Miniatures Modern British troopers... three.

White Dragon Miniatures 32mm Modern British troopers (Afghanistan)...

..circa 2014. The first four are finished and based.

and they'd be good for near future and post apoc too!

MRZR-2 and US Rangers...

COMING SOON(ish) - more moderns; BRITS...

...this time! Standing about 32mm tall and immaculately cast in one piece in a very durable, quality resin with sharp, well-defined detail the miniatures would appear to be an accurate depiction of the present day, MTP clothed British soldier his equipment and weapons. I have no news of a release date as yet but I understand the range will be extensive with alternative helmets (eg Para helmets), poses, weapons and, in the future, allies, opfor and vehicles.
A 'gentleman' of my acquaintance (said 'gentleman' has also told me that 10% of sales will be donated to soldiers charities - a very magnanimous gesture by this former 'squaddie'!) has kindly sent me a few samples and so I have eight troopers on my painting desk seven of which are shown below...
