So I decided to revisit my Swat team, got rid of the old Eureka Swat team and invested in a beautifully sculpted TAG (The Assault Group) Swat team, I did this for a few reasons, the first of which was that I can see myself getting into some modern hostage rescue action, and Eureka's range just wasn't big enough, not enough specialists not enough variety, this was my first and main reason.
The second reason was that the Eureka range looked so so, the poses were not dynamic enough and a little repetative, overall a very average looking five figures, not what I had in mind, they were more of an impulse buy, having not even researched the subject.
Once I had a chance to look into, who made Swat miniatures there was hardly a choice to make, TAG Swat looked every bit as badass as you would expect Swat to be, Tactical Vests, Balaclavas, wide range of weaponary, Mp5's, M4 Carbines, Shotguns and Pistols, great sculpts with a variety of poses, can't recommend TAG Swat enough, great minis with badass attitudes.
I have a second Swat group ready for deployment but I am unsure as to whether to paint them a different colour uniform, or should I keep them the same and go for the uniformed look ? what do you guys think ?
