Having said consolidation is needed....  Rolling Eyes  Rolling Eyes
I was a out shopping for booster seat for my Grandson when I saw these in the local Bernardo's . Spent a £10 -mainly for the Rhino ( now have 3 -will have a go a "pimping" one up for the Dragonians.)

This chap has got good articulation- comes with a nice  Brodie in good condition- I can either swap his head out or give him a good scrub.He has had some interesting cosmetics tried out on him I think Laughing
Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 10 IMG-0818

This chap is a mid 90's mam- nice Uni  looks quite minty- he is however a limited articulation figure- so will swap him out for a fully articulated one. Will have to do some research and see If I can reunite the webbing that would of come with the set.
Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 10 IMG-0819

The "dolly" has reasonable articulation. I have a spare female head from Dal so will experiment to see if I can make up a workable figure.

I also have my family out looking  for me - got this set of kit from my Daughter-in-laws father- only MAM but hey that Mythical Charity shop VAM find is out here I'm sure .. lol!
If any MAM fans see anything on their hit list see anything they fancy let me know.(Ackie88 has already dibbed the purple mug, numb(?)-chucks, silver daggers, axe, knee pads  & pistol with scope)

Thanks to Ackie 88 generosity and expert e-baying , The Munrovian Mortar Raid section got a new member . I managed to find a webbing set so decided to set him up as an attached Engineer.  
I also came upon a MAM jacket ( one of the best imo ) - so fixed up the Mortar raid commander with it.

Hi guys
remember this fella- part of Charity (Barnado's) pick-up.
Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 10 IMG-0818

He had some cosmetic work done on him - I reckon by a girl- could he be "brought back ?"

So a dolop of Zit cream and a couple pof days in the weak watery winter UK sunshine... and

Just needs  quick hair touch up to correct a couple of paint rubs and I reckon he is ready to join the ranks . IMO one of the better MAM head sculpts

You’ve done some magic cosmetic work on his face Gunner and once you’ve given his hair a quick touch up to correct a couple of paint rubs then as you type he’ll be ready to join the ranks Wink. You think his head sculpt is one of the better MAM head sculpts for me I think he looks to young in my opinion but every one has their favourite head sculpts at the end of the day Very Happy. If you want to know what figure set he’s originally from well he’s originally from a set called action man mission altitude

PostSubject: Battle Force Squad Reorting for duty- Can you help kit them out?   Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 10 Icon_minitimeSun Mar 24, 2019 10:58 am

Hi folks

As you know I started my foray into this hobby back in 2016. I was only going to fix up my childhood guys and I was definitely a VAM man.

I started looking again at MAM as a homage to the figures my two boys had back in the mid 90's.
Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 10 IMG_2219

As is usual a few started to turn up in the Job lots I was hoovering up for e-bay in my 'starter' enthusiasm. Also well meaning friends started the - "I found these in a junk shop and thought of you"- soon I had may of our chunky friends .

The thing that I like is the VAM military and, along with SKJ, the uniformity of building squads with similar Uniforms- something I never seemed to do back in  the day.Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 10 Fullsizeoutput-347

The key thing I never got with MAM ,was all the skating/ barbie legs/lack of articulation/windsufring etc -but then I wasn't a 8 year old kid in the 90's lol! .

There have been a few what imo ~I would call decent military lines and Battle Force is one. So with my new streamlined kit I've been able to fix up a squad to join the Munrovian ranks.

Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 10 Fullsizeoutput-1bae

I'm using fully articulated figures - A figure called Cammo Attack ? I think for the Squadies,
Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 10 Fullsizeoutput-1bba

and one of the better figures re head size for taking VAM caps and Berets, the NCO and Officer .

Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 10 Fullsizeoutput-1bb1
Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 10 Fullsizeoutput-1bb7

I've used a MAM version of the high top boot that looks quite military and given them all Cotswold OG belts.

I'd like to give the Squadies the original webbing that came with these sets. Could you do one of either:

1. Look out for them on your e-bay sweeps and drop me a line
or
2. have a look in your spares boxes to see if you have any surplus to requirements ?

Thanks for looking guys
Gunner

Hi guys

Here they are

I have updated the officer with some classic VAM kit- The wooly pully and Officers hat. I'm going for a homage to the classic VAM look but updated.

I've used various bits of MAM and Non MAM kit I have collected to kit them out. I'm using a paper fasteners as an Ersatz cap badge ( Thanks Steve aka SKJ  for the inspiration) until I can sort out a Munrovian Cap badge & Shoulder patch.

I really enjoyed looking through your Battle force group you’ve put together though various bits of MAM and Non MAM kit you have collected to kit them out. It’s nice to see the Battle force group out on their Inaugural patrol.

Thanks for sharing your latest kitbashed group.

....I don't think my 8 year old self would have thought much of MAM in any decade! lol! lol!

But..You, Mr Munro are a miracle worker! Insert as many 'Silk purse from a sow's ear' platitudes in here as you want. You've done what most would have said was impossible. You've created a very authentic looking, uniformly, militaristic, platoon of MAM 'troops'! cheers cheers

Looking at these guys I can almost bring myself to believe that when they start tree hugging it's to take cover from enemy fire and not to stage a protest about saving the rain forest! lol!
