the starter box only had one sort of sprue, and a separate weapons sprue.

Yeah, that's how the soviet starter set is too. The second sprue is a different box.

The standard british infantry kit is pretty good. Like other kits it's only one kind of main sprue and a weapon sprue, but the main sprue only has one kneeling pose and the rest are upright.

I'm going to skip the Commando set because -as appears to be the case with some other factions- the only change from the main infantry srpue is that it has some different heads and a couple of different accessories. The bodies all look the same. It doesn't even have the skull caps (is that what they were called?) that were kind of the Commando signature.

For my veteran army I'll buy the Airborne kit as even though it has the same weapon sprue it at least has what I think is a completely different main sprue with different poses and outfits.

If any folks are looking for cheap alternate models, Black Tree Design is currently running a half-off price on all WW2 infantry packs for the next 2 days.

The figs are quite good and the range is reasonably deep as I think they were formerly the well-regarded Harlequin WW2 range.

Average sale price seems to be about $1.25 per fig!

I painted up a few of the Black Tree Soviet NKVD soldiers a couple years ago.

Cool find, the prone troops look tempting. They have some neat fantasy flavor pieces too, like a sacrificial altar and witch burning set, hah. Seems I'll have to browse this site some.

They do have some good oldhammer fantasy stuff. It's a combination of the old Harlequin Fantasy stuff and another brand whose name escapes me. Alot of it seems to be deliberately a similar style, and proportion to early 90's Warhammer.

They also used to have a few interesting sci-fi figs and some not-Squats (I've got a few painted up) but they appear to be out of production again.

I took advantage of this sale, got some mortar teams, hmg, prone figs and casualties for flavor...and a Hitler mini. Haha. Their fantasy range definitely has that classic vibe, it was like browsing a GW catalog from my childhood, so I picked up some models I thought looked really quirky. I couldn't pass on a giant frog who just ate somebody, c'mon now. ;D

Cool!

If anyone else orders, could they add this british flyers pack to their order for me?

No worries if not, I'm sure they'll have other sales later.

The sale at Black Tree is back on for about one day more.

I'm going to make a small order if anyone wants to share shipping costs.
