thanks fellas,

I read a post about putting a wire through the in side of the boot just by the heel.

Didn't have any wire so used a bamboo skewer instead. The thing about VAM vs say a Dragon figure is the boot can be quite loose and the trousers are often "un-bloused" , so for  couple of the older lads with dodgy rivets a bit of electrical tape did the trick.

Note to self - remember groups of more than three VAM take ages to set up lol!

Love it! Great action shots of the guys running across the lawn! I've used sawn off metal tent pegs op the trouser leg to get similar shots in the past. Fantastic work!
