Footsore Miniatures & Games have replaced their lovely Sutton Hoo helmet with a modern version of military face mask as the first packs of their Moderns range arrive from North America and onto the UK site.

Modern British SBS // Footsore Moderns

We featured some of these in an interview with Tim on the Weekender a few weeks ago and if you haven't seen that then it's worth a watch to see where Tim has come from and also the depth of range that will be coming to our shores in the near future. There are five packs available now for modern warfare three combatants and two civilian packs covering a range of possibilities for your games.

The Special Boat Service is the special forces unit of the United Kingdom's Royal Navy. This pack of five figures represent SBS Operators in Syria although they can be used for many other theatres.  This pack includes helmeted heads as well as caps giving you the option to swap out depending on your warfighting needs. They are also accompanied by a dog vital for sniffing out IEDs for the elite force.

US Navy Seals // Footsore Moderns

The US Navy SEALs are the US Navy's special operations unit.  This pack of ten figures can be used in various theatres as well as used for other Special Operators, in full camouflage gear with a range of poses they are probably the quintessential special forces that come to mind for a lot of people and will find a home in many collections.

Boko Haram // Footsore Moderns

This pack of 11 figures represent fighters from the Islamic State in West Africa, known as Boko Haram. They are equipped with a range of weaponry from AK-47 rifles to a pair of RPG wielders and an infantry support machine gun they have the tools to bring terror to the tabletop.

One thing that strikes me are the poses of the figures. They aren't styled in the standard military poses that we would expect to see with trained fighters, instead we have fighters spraying gunfire above their heads as if over a wall or running from cover to cover. It's certainly evocative of the images we see on the news.

Modern War Correspondants // Footsore Moderns

These War Correspondents are here to cover the action. This set of seven figures were inspired by current and past War Correspondents that cover incidents throughout the world.  Perfect for any modern gaming table. They would make a fantastic objective scenario for your modern games or even an impediment to your forces as they get in the way trying to cover the action.
