Modern Americans in NBCD Gear

A few more Americans in Nuclear Biological Chemical Defence gear…

(Remember: click on the pictures for a bigger version):

I don’t know if you can see them there (because they’re so well camouflaged!), but there’s four Americans in NBCD gear from The Assault Group in this picture. I picked up this pack to add to the ones I already have to fill out a squad of sorts. I love (LOVE) that you can order a single pack direct from the Assault Group and not have to pay an astronomical amount of postage.

Here’s the whole squad together….

The plan is to use them in Savage Worlds RPG/Skirmish games – zombie games or post-apocalyptic or other disasters where Biological or Chemical agents or contamination may be… I have a very specific scenario in mind for them first, but I don’t want to give anything away lest any of my players figure it out…

I’m awfully tempted to pick up a few more (that’s the truly eveil part of being able to order any number… is you can just order one or two or three packs and “hey it’s only ONE pack, right…?” and then you order a few more…)… or perhaps I should pick up a pack of Copplestone Castings Bio-Chem Squad for some (rather heavily armed!) CDC specialists.

Coming soon on Tim’s Miniature Wargaming Blog:

Oh, so much fun on the workbench these days… Maybe it’s time to clear it off and start fresh… the same old WW2 British Paras and Soviets are there (plus a few new ones that just arrived… West Winds was having a sale… curse them…) and a pile of Great War cavalry all based and primed and ready to go (shall I start with the Germans…? or the colourful Frenchies?)… Ancient Greek… assorted Modern–ish stuff… yadda-yadda same old stuff, who knows which I’ll do next…!?  


  1. These are nicely done. Need to order 50 of them for a project I want to do for the winter.

    1. Thanks!

      Wow!? 50!? What madness have YOU got planned!?

    2. If you're looking for a little more variety Eureka Miniatures does 1980s Americans and Soviets in NBCD suits. From what I understand they are somewhat smaller than the Assault Group stuff. There's some great pictures of them painted up fabulously and in ACTION over at Fawcett Avenue Conscripts.
