Hotspur 20mm figures - Operation Corporate - British

Hello! Well, I thought I would put up some images of what I am working on. This post is what the old Hotspur 20mm miniatures look like for their Operation Corporate (Falklands / Malvinas Conflict) in 1982. This unfinished figures grouped in what comes in each different pack. I thought it might be nice to see the different miniatures. I also found out this week that they are now available again through Stonewall Miniatures in the UK. This is a great news!
British Command: (note the figure in the back has a separate arm that has not been cut off the base and glued on to the body yet.)
British Infantry Firing: A nice selection of support weapons
British Infantry Advancing
Special Air Service: Just want you need to storm Pebble Island
Royal Marine Mountain and Arctic Warfarce Cadre: mostly armed with M16 rifles

Bought some packs from Stonewallfigures just to test the quality of the catings before launching into the range in a big way.

The figures arrived many weeks later. The order was incomplete and many figures were without barrels on their SLRs.

Cheers

Sorry to hear that, Mark.

Most of mine was from the old Hotspur days. But I had ordered some packs from Stonewall to flush out my forces. You could tell that they were old molds, but I didn't see too much problems.

I hope that you contacted Stonewall with your problems. And I would like to hear what actions that they took.

Sorry again,

Joe

Been in touch with Mark at Stonewall who has offered to make things right. Placing a second order - fingers crossed.

Cheers

Hopefully they will make good with that! Let me know how it goes as I have been thinking of order some IJA paratroopers for WWII some time later down the line, like next year or so.
