PostSubject: ERF.. 'English Resistance Fighter' ...aka as 'Running with the Clivvers'   Thu Nov 24, 2016 8:09 am

I was just whizzing around the forum and read Clivvers post on the English Resistance Fighters ERF, because old AH didn't go East after all but he focussed on nipping over the Channel first to make sure our trains ran on time..

http://actionmanmobileops.forumotion.co.uk/t7832-october-2016-french-resistance-fighter

So I suggest we do a thread on what the ERF uniform would have been... I'll get some of mine up tonight!!

Good idea Clivvers!! Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

Nice one Slack, thanks for bringing this to the table cheers

I'm looking forward to seeing what you and other members can come up with. I will have a go a designing a simple logo/patch for the ERF team. I'm thinking of a mix of vam, MAM or DID type items that other members can easily mix together to make their own ERF.

I'm off to see what i can come up with kitmix wise, but i don't have any flat caps or bowler hats for the "What if in WWII" thread Wink

Here's a fantasy 'English Resistance Fighter' unit patch that i quicky put together this afternoon. I wanted to keep it very simple so it could print out ok in different sizes.

The three strike arrows represent Scotland, Ireland and Wales, the main triangle patch shape represents England, so all regions are combined into one 'English Resistance Fighter' force..

English Resistance Fighters (ERF) or British Resistance Fighters (BRF) 1944 - 1950.

Clever stuff Clive! Very Happy

Quick question, are we looking for a certain style? or are we thinking a sort of everyday look of the 1940's?

Slack,

I can visualise some ERF members wearing black wooly rolled up beanies like the commando style ones, most folks have them in their collections, also standard black Action Man boots, duffle coats, black (FRF) and blue polar adventurer sweaters, plus MAM basic green 'crew neck' jerseys might be a good start, i hope that helps with the kitmixing to start with.

Midnight approaches on Upper Slack Street at the German Checkpoint into the Occupied Quarter...
and the ERF is ready to settle some scores and send a message to the German High Command...

"ERF Till Victory!"

Blimming excellent!!! They are tops Slack and with a daring night time raid in progress!!!!  cheers  cheers  cheers

They really do look like what i have in my minds eye as how the English Restistance Fighters (ERF) would have looked looked if the enemy had invaded and taken over England, in WWII: These are the brave 'Tommy Englander Boys' who won't accept the take over of "Old Blighty" by the enemy, and at all costs will do anything and everything to defeat the enemy. These scenes remind me of 'The Victor Book for Boys' and the likes, it would have made a cool story in it. I love the lighting effects you've employed and your photography is expertly done as usual! Very Happy

I've not started my ERF team yet..
