Wow that figure looks fantastic! Another useful addition to the NATO Afghan scene by Airborne Miniatures. Nice boxart with the multicam ACU. Be sure to write up a review Mario!

Yeah, I like this set very much and I hope we'll see a review of those here soon. I'm a bit puzzled with Macieks head sculpts though... I think most of his latest SF figures all have moustaches.

To be fair, the "Taliban" does not look Afghan... he's more Caucasian, than anything. Maybe it's the hair color, the skin color, maybe it's the beard's style, maybe it's that he looks quite well-fed, but the guy looks rather like a hippie from Woodstock, and not a lean, mean fighter from the Afghan mountains who have been fighting foreign armies since the time of Alexander the Great.

I think this is a fine pair of figures, the SF guy does have a moustache but this sort of thing is very common. Although I would have preffered a beard! The prisoner could easily be a foreign fighter, you could easily pose the pair on pre-deployment training.

These figures are a product of Airborne Miniatures. You can ask about selling the Taliban separately on their website:

Maciek, the owner, is a great guy and I'm sure you will come to an agreement.
