Next up is Dell, a female officer. In addition to the head swap, Foundry have made one other change to this conversion and it's an important one. Dell is firing her 9mm MP5KA5 Machine Pistol correctly, unlike Officer Lords, the figure she's based upon, who was firing it "gangsta-style" to one side. It's just a simple alteration but it's one that I approve of.
Standing a good bit taller than his colleagues is Bleach, who appears to have raided a military armoury and got himself a 5.56mm M249 Squad Automatic Weapon. SWAT Teams do not possess SAWs and have nothing heavier than Assault Rifles in their arsenal. Please take note, Foundry!
I have no complaints about the fourth figure in line. This is Dean, who is holding his 9mm Heckler and Koch MP5A Sub-Machine Gun at the shoulder. Most SWAT forces use the MP5A SMG as their primary weapon, although some forces replace it with the 5.56mm Colt Commando CAR15 Assault Rifle.
Last in line is Harris, another female officer, although it is hard to tell. This is my favourite figure out of this set, as she has been very cleverly converted by giving her an entry shield (entry shields are much larger than riot shields). I just love how she is resting the barrel of her 9mm Heckler and Koch MP5A SMG on the top lip of her shield for extra stability.
Leading this group at the far left of my two photos is the only unique figure in these two sets, i.e. he isn't a conversion of a figure from the first two sets. This is Sergeant Baker and he is a two-piece casting. His bullhorn is a separate component that had to be glued in place. He is not wearing his gasmask, presumably to make using the bullhorn that much easier. He holds a 12 gauge Ithaca Model 37 Pump-Action Shotgun in his right hand with the butt resting on his right hip. The shotgun has a small tactical torch fitted just beneath the barrel.
To his immediate left is Rosina, another female officer. She is equipped as standard and is a rather average figure. She's not badly sculpted but nothing about her is outstanding.
Next up is Scott. I dunno if that's his Christian name or surname. He carries a one-man ram (heavier ones require two men to use) used for breaking down doors. Rams are colloquially called "keys" by many teams. Replacing the SAW with a Ram is a good choice and more in keeping with a SWAT Team. So, another good conversion by Foundry and I'd nominate Scott as my favourite figure out of this set.
Taff is the fourth figure in line and she is yet another female officer but I wouldn't blame you if you made her male. I mentioned last time that female operatives are exceedingly rare in SWAT Teams and yet Foundry have made four in these two sets of ten. That's far too many! Taff is firing her 9mm MP5A SMG from the shoulder.
The final figure in this group is Beale and he is armed with a single round 37mm Grenade Launcher. Its most likely munitions are a plastic baton round, or a tear gas or smoke canister. It's an interesting choice of weapon but not out of place in a SWAT team.
You'll notice that I've painted these in the same colour schemes that I gave to SWAT Team Alpha and SWAT Team Takedown, featured last time. This means that I can combine all four sets to make a very large contigent of SWAT troopers.
If you order these sets from Foundry they retail at £10.00 per set for five figures. I must admit that I'm a big fan of Foundry's Street Violence range. Their figures are just perfect for using in a zombie apocalypse campaign.
