Galaxy Troops


 Many groups working together in harmony.


 Creating a life on a strange and distant planet.


Some can't even breathe the same air.

All work together towards the same goal.

Keep the galaxy safe from invasion.

Strangers in a Strange Land


 Combine a few of the new Tim Mee sets together and you have a pretty good playset.

A green space army in a strange planet.

 Plenty of equipment.

Strange plants.

Important gear to guard.

Jeeps, Cannons and Terrain


 Cannon on a small ramp for extended firing range.  This terrain system works very well with the Combat Patrol toys.


I like that the terrain is so durable.

The jeep and cannon drive over the hump well.

The driver figures fit well inside too.

All in all a great group of new stuff from Tim Mee.

Cannon and Drivers


Two figures from the previous set, with the rubber raft.  They don't fit well behind the steering wheel until you clip a tiny bit from the heel and behind of the soldier.

  Combat Patrol from Tim Mee in blue and gray.  For those alternate history American Civil War games.

 Then they fit just fine in the driver seat.  The front and rear passenger requires no modification.


I use the gray jeep for the US Navy.

I think it looks great with two blue figures in it.

Then we have a little terrain piece as a gun emplacement for maximum elevation and range!

Jeep and Cannon



 Thank you Jeff Imel for this great set!


 One of the many things I love about Tim Mee is the new production of old item, not only in the old colors, but the new colors of plastic.


 The good old jeep and cannon set in blue!


My plan is to use the blue ones for the US Air Force.

  A great little set up!

Raft and Boat

This is a great new BMC set, in blue.  I use blue as Naval landing parties.

 It comes with a bunch of seated guys. 

 The prone guys fit well in the raft.


 Ready to spring up when close to shore.


 Seated guys fit well on the boat from the new Terrain Set.

So a landing of ships boat and rubber raft.

Figures fit nicely in the rather flat bottomed boat.

More Blue Man Group


 Recast Marx figures, as good as the originals, but in blue!


 At first glance this guy looks like he has a walkie-talkie but he is actually carrying a .30 caliber machine gun on his shoulder.  They are heavy.  The other guy has the early style US flamethrower.


Firing from the hip, I like this dramatic pose.  The other guy is the ammo bearer for the machine gunner.

Marx did a couple versions of the radio handset in one had and pistol in the other, this is one of them!  The other guy couching behind cover waiting to move up.

Reloading a new clip into his M-1 rifle.  Leading the charge!

Keep low and try to look inconspicuous.  I love the detail on the bottom of prone figures.


 Waving the troops forward in the attack!

BMC Troops in Blue



 BMC US soldiers in blue, in 1/32nd scale, thanks Jeff Imel for the troops!

Being blue, I use them as a Naval Landing Party.   

The parachute guy can be a naval flyer jumping out of his shot down plane, or maybe a SEAL infiltrating the enemy lines.

This guy is supposed to be gathering in his parachute.  Out of context an odd pose.

Rubber raft with two rowers.  I love rubber rafts.  I even had a real one as a teenager.

This is a nice big flat raft, with ammo boxes and packs on the floor.  A good model.  Very useful set.

Parts for the rowboat.


 They fit together easily.

Rowboat is big enough for a number of 54mm troops, pirates, or others.

Nice oars.


Pull up to the hill and drop off your treasure.  Tim Mee Battle Terrain.
