Armed Civilians Review

This is going to be my first real write up about figures and hopefully real useful information for those of interest, so bare with me.

Okay so I inquired around about these guys and no one seemed to be able to give me much on any details about them, so I ordered a set to see how they are for myself. I thought that they would become very useful in many gaming areas.

Cost; 11 British Pounds,  about $24 in US Dollars in all which included the shipping cost, for fifty figures (50), a nice deal there.

Shipping; Ten days from order to delivery, from the UK to the Midwest of the US. Nice and fast

Poses; Ten different poses, and it is a mix in the numbers of each that you may receive,
  • five (5) poses with AKs,
  • one (1) pose with rifle with sight,
  • one (1) pose with LMG,
  • one (1) pose with RPG,
  • one (1) pose with shoulder fire ground to air missile launcher
  • one (1) pose throwing Molotov Cocktail

Molding; Very little to no flash at all some lite molding lines but very easy to clean up, bottom of the bases may need some lite filing or sanding. The details are nice as well just hard to see in the photos

Comparison to other figures.

OG UK,   Splinter Light,   OG UK,   GZG,   OG UK

Game uses;
Post Apocalyptic Survivors/Gangs
Zombie Survivors
Street Gangs
Modern Pirates
Militias (from most anywhere around the world)

Future plans; Some head swaps and weapon swaps for a greater look in diversity. Will be getting heads for swapping out from Peter Pig http://www.peterpig.co.uk/ under Heads and Odds and weapons from MJ Miniatures http://mjfigures.co.uk/ in the 15mm range accessories. Green Stuff for adding pouches, nap sacks, bandoleers and bed rolls. These will be a later post so keep watching for them. .

Finial Note; I am very pleased with them and can't wait to get around to them and get them into the games
I would recommend them for anyone interested in gaming in the areas I have mentioned above.

I hope anyone interested in them will find my findings helpful


  1. Thanks for your review, I didn't know about these figures into you asked about them on TMP. I'll probably get a pack of these along with the 2 packs of African Militia/HQ heavy weapons.

    1. Thank you for your comment, I just so happen to trip over them myself, and thought they could be used in a wide range of things, I hope you will agree.
