15mm Modern Israeli Defence Forces IDF from....

.........Khurasan Miniatures.



15mm Modern Israelis wearing the mitznefet helmet cover (the purpose of the helmet cover is to break up the distinctive outline of a helmeted head and aid with camouflage). There is little known on the make up of a Israeli platoon but eventually after much searching and asking I settled on 3 squads of 12 made up of 4 fire teams each plus a platoon leader.


There were some normal helmeted figures but they didn't look right and their heads were quite small (in my opinion).



Khurasan promise some armor in the near future, QRF do some but I have had some bad experiences with their mold lines so I might wait!



They carry a mixture of M-16's, Tavors, Negev LMG's and Shipon anti tank weapons!


Will there be support weapons, forgot to ask!

  1. Fran - given their tininess @ 15mm that is a superb finish and basing on them. They look ready to kick some Hamas butt! Nice work.

  7. Well done! Kol haKavod! They look great. I think someone else has a Merkava in 15mm. But I really like Khurasan's figures. I probably would be tempted to wait too.

  12. I remember the days, not so long ago, when serving military was obligatory in my country as it still is in Israel, although it wasn't two but just a year long and it didn't count for women too like in Israel
