interesting to make them as Sikhs but being able to use them for Italy also is a real bonus. better than using Normandy brits for italy.

Great idea. Didn’t realise this was an option with the new kits.

The head options for both the new 8th Army and the DAK kits are really good.

I had a nose at the 8th Army box in a store this week. It’s very cool that you get the various head options – you could get to a sizeable and diverse army just with multiples of the same box.

I really do like his choice to go for the Sikhs. It makes for more variety in general and is not something you typically see.

Really great idea swapping out those heads, that’ll definitely add some lovely variety to the table.

Best thing: all black hair! I laughed XD currently painting 50 americans in 1:72 and i was so happy when i noticed i wouldn’t have to paint much face. apply face colour > wash a lot > brush a bit > done. no hair no eyes just … done in 3 steps aaah so good.

Sounds like they are less finicky to build, that’s a plus.

I like seeing something different. These come with the kit, these Sikhs heads?

I think it’s great that there is an option on the sprues to make Sikhs.

The Sikhs are looking great, they’re one of the Commonwealth forces I’ve toyed with the idea of making (them and the West Africans in Burma).
But man, those mould lines!
