Iranian M113s - WIP - part II


My headless Iranians are no longer! The Peter Pig order arrived promptly as always and I set about added the American M1 helmets, which I think are my best option.

I got the green stuff out and added quite a few scarfs, these probably have a proper name but are prevalent in most pictures and videos of the period.

Some minor stowage work as well, usual random tarpaulin sheets and on one some make shift sandbag protection .


It's been quite a bit of work, but I think the end result will be worth it, am really liking the look of these. 

I do have the figures for a Pasdaran and a regular Infantry battalion now, but they will have to wait a bit for commission work.

That's these for now, they will migrate into a building batch ready for priming .

That hits the spot. looks good. I don't know what the headbands are called, but I have seen them listed by what they say... like, they are known by the message on them or something. It is a very confusing piece of kit, without an equivalent in Western military doctrine. But the overloaded M113s look great.

I love Peter Pigs heads. Without them I would have absolutely no chance of doing my French Indochina War stuff without bankrupting myself and my family buying figures that I could just chop the heads off!

These look great mate!
