Awhile back I posted this MB toting a SOTW bazooka:

That Joe is an homage to the Geyperman Adventurer figs. It led me to think how an actual Geyperman fig would look with the weapon. This is the Commando figure. I've replaced his Sten with a Sterling (what the vintage box art shows him carrying) and gave him the SOTW bazooka, ammo vest and rounds. If there are any Iron Knight or Stuart tanks about, they had better be ready!

Thanks for the kind words! For those of you who have read Frederick Forsyth's "The Dogs of War", the figure's inspiration was bazooka expert "Tiny" Marc Vlaminck.
