Last week I ordered 3 AQOTMF sets and when they arrived one of them was the wrong item! I had ordered

US004 US Command Squad.

US012  Mobile Artillery Tanks.

And US002 Forlorn Hope Team.

However the Forlorn Hope Team turned up as a Rough Rider Squad, I contacted the seller and they organized for the right models to be sent out (which would have turned up the next day if royal mail read the address right!). Instead the models turned up yesterday afternoon!

As you can see, you get 9 models (3 of each pose). All of the models have a small tab on their feet (which needs to be removed), and as far as I can tell the rope from the model goes between the legs of the one above.  The models are equipped with dynamite for taking down tripods at close range. In game terms they are an add-on for a unit of “dough boys”. And you really don’t need to buy more than 1 or 2 packs, as they are only used to represent a “Forlorn Hope” attack and then are removed from play (a one shot attack)

The US002 Forlorn Hope Team costs £7.25 ($10.00), so about 80p ($1.11) a figure.

Northstar have now listed the Land Ironclad as out of stock on their website, so has it become a limited edition? only time will tell………………….
