Action Force moved swiftly to retake Ascendancy Island, and this time the operation went like clockwork. Q Force, the naval element, reconnoitred Ascendancy Island, capturing a Red Shadow. Space Force satellites observed the Baron's movements. SAS Force parachuted secretly behind the Red Shadow defensive lines, ready to attack from the rear when the moment came.
I've used Peter Pig WWII British 14th
Army figures with sten guns and tommy guns for my SAS Force soldiers, the original heads
swapped for British commando stocking cap heads. These match the SAS
force action figures fairly well, "Quickfire" having been
equipped with a Thompson SMG. The 14th army figures
are carrying plenty of equipment which compares well with the action
figures and ties in with their appearance in the Battle Action Force
comics. Some of the SAS action figures were finished in a grey
and black camouflage pattern, others were all in black. For the
moment I've opted for the all-black colour scheme, I don't know how
well the grey and black pattern would show up at 15mm scale but I
might experiment with the next batch to see what result I get.
