HEROICS & ROS 1:300 Scale Figure Review

British Paratroops, 1:300 Miniatures HEROICS & ROS BR3

HEROICS & ROS 1:300 scale British Paratroops are sold in bags of 50 miniatures containing a mix of paratroopers armed with rifles, Sten SMGs, Bren LMGs, PIAT anti-tank projectors, 3" mortars, and radios. There are enough figures in the bag to recruit a paratroop platoon and a few elements of the HQ Company. The Jeep, Universal Carrier, and Tetrach Light Tank shown here are not included in the figure set, but they will be needed to recreate miniature Paratroop formations for wargames.

Evaluation

HEROICS & ROS figures are only 5.5 mm tall and surprisingly detailed. Personal weapons can be identified and the troops paint up well, despite their small size.

Many wargamers use 1:300 scale miniatures to play large battles on relatively small tables. Others maintain the recommended base sizes of their favourite rules system, but mount more figures on them to arrive at a 1:1 figure scale.

Using Micro Armour and infantry, every wargame stand can be a realistic miniature diorama. Stands may have printed labels on them to identify the infantry section, support weapon, or command element. Micro Armour miniature battles may even be played on Squad Leader map boards with large hexes.

Compatible with GHQ Micro Armour.

HEROICS & ROS 1:300 scale British Paratroops are small enough to play the Arnhem campaign on a ping-pong table.
