Re: orion

yes great sets for 1939/40 tank crews lrdg/sas it should be as box art shows paddy mayne and i think reg seekings of the sas. i know why alan has reservations sten guns. but anything new at moment is most welcome.

Re: orion

Polish tank crew and LRDG, a big yes!!! But what about US marines (Vietnam war) and may be some Australian troops (Vietnam war). This would be a surprise for sure!!! Orion is one of my favourite figure makers, one way or another...

Re: orion

Well not only sten guns were not used - also bren and so much rifles… LRDG need more firepower like Thompson with drum magazine, trophy mp40’s, Lewis guns…

Here is a good article regarding the equipment and weapons of LRDG:

From the other side the tank crew men are great! Orion is the unique form depicting those brave men who served their metal horses. 😊

Kind regards,
