Saw this on the PMMS this morning:

With just a little tweaking and a new head, the Horrocks figure could also be made into a convincing Bradley.

Doesn't look like Horrocks at all. When I saw it on PMMS I thought why is Bradley wearing a beret?
The Churchill figure is a bit off too as the slightly stooping figure on the box is much more like him.

Good idea though and I will get these!

If he looked like Edward Fox it might go over better. . . . .

Edward Fox was a good Horrocks. Those of us who are pretty old may remember Brian Horrocks from his TV series. Yes, he presented a TV show about his various battles. This would be in the 50s, black and white. Charming man, very modest, much more likeable than Monty, who also had a series about his battles, every one of which very much reflected his own view of himself. Nobody could call him modest. (To my dad, who knew some of them, Slim was the best.)

I wonder if you could find those series now.

These figures look well animated except for Churchill being a bit too straight backed. I think this would be a real opportunity for some enterprising sculptor to make an aftermarket head set that looked a bit more like these folks than the plastic does.

Hey Taesung, you listening?

Cheers,

I don't think I've seen a picture of Monty with even a tea cup. For Monty, maybe even tea was too much of an intoxicant.

Churchill on the other hand.......

Why is Horrocks wearing the uniform of a war correspondent?
