To the left of him is Tweedy, a female operative, who is armed with the 9mm Heckler and Koch MP5KA5 Machine Pistol. She also has a .45 Springfield Bureau Pistol in a holster on her right hip.
The big guy in the centre of the group is Bone (stupid name!), who is armed with the 5.56mm M249 Squad Automatic Weapon, which, as I have commented on before, would never be issued to any SWAT Team or police force. This is a weapon for military operations and would only be issued to military personnel.
Next in line is Del'Orto, who is supposed to be female but who could be mistaken for a short male. She is armed with a 10mm Heckler and Koch MP5/10A3 Sub-Machine Gun, which is standard issue amongst FBI SWAT teams and is a slightly larger calibre than normal SWAT Teams' 9mm MP5A SMGs. His back-up weapon is the .45 Springfield Bureau Pistol.
The final figure in this group is Roddy, and he too, is armed with the MP5/10A3 SMG and .45 Springfield Bureau Pistol. He is posed in a firing position.
If you like the previous Foundry SWAT Teams that I've reviewed recently, you'll surely like these. Of course, there's no reason why you couldn't paint them all in the same uniform colours to make a very large force of 25 figures (26 if you include Sergeant Hall). I just wanted to do something different with set SV056 SWAT Team Shadow, which is why I decided to paint them up as FBI HRT operatives. This set retails for £10.00 for all five figures.
I was asked recently how many police figures I own and I wasn't too sure but I knew it was more than 100. So I counted them all and the total came to 160. Here is the breakdown -
U.K. and U.S. Detectives = 48
U.K. Street Cops = 15
U.S. Street Cops = 32
SWAT Troopers = 48
HRT Troopers = 17
That's more than enough for my needs but I wouldn't bet against me adding to those numbers!
