You guys have made me want to make some Uprising Action Figures now.
Larry made some MHI one's and I thought that looked fun. 
Now I could do my own.

Hmmm....

    What scale?  I could get you pointed in the right direction.

    I don't know.  What would be the best, most options?

    12 inch/ 1:6 - you can scrounge all manner of guys and gals, have unlimited clothing/uniform options - including medieval armor - and all manner of cool guns at 1:6 scale.  Drawbacks - unless you know the good online stores - which I do - figures CAN get expensive.  Also, they take up lots of space.

    4 inch / 1:18 - less expensive, and more dedicatedly "military" lines - far from the Barbie aisle for clothing - but catching up on 1:6 with the neat gear.  As well, check for the Captain America line of 4 inch figures, and some of the Marvels like Commander Steve Rogers and Winter Soldier and the Punisher.  Some of the one generation back Joes have interchangable heads (as well as the Marvel figures).  I also noticed that the Young Justice Black Canary handily packs a Steve Rogers Glock 23, and with a leather jacket, looks like a BA cyberpunk gal.  Few options for Uprising Britain "Knights."  Cheap kiosk store figures can be semi-melted and battered to make NEAT zombies.  Get some trigger time on your Mossberg and blow a few knockoffs around, and you've got figures with torn limbs, holes and scarred bodies with the right shot.
    Drawbacks - fewer chances for your "angels," uniform changes involve painting.  The newest lines of G.I. Joe have weird, erzatz guns, not like before where you had your choice of Benelli M-4's, Dragunovs, M-16/M203's, and Thompsons.

    Some galleries of my 1:6 figures - one for the SF series Outlanders, one for the Stony Man series of books, and Mack Bolan.

    (hope these are accessible to you all.)

    Of late, I've done a 1:18 Outlanders group, and a 1:18 Executioner.  Still working on an "idealized me" as well. Need to take photos of them.

    The MHI figures look cool--I could definatly find a place for them near the ammo shelf.

    Here are some Brits who have gone waaaaaaay overboard with the 1/6 action figures:  http://www.vonabt.co.uk/

    Points of Interest:  That SIG 556 is sporting a custom duracoat camo job done by Joe, aka GunDoc, of CrusderWeaponry.
    And that old man with the M-1A.  With a .338 Lapua rifle he does 1 hole groups at 880 yards.  After taking a couple of my handgun courses, he went down to GunSite for a little competition there - and Tore It Up.  He's a great shooter.

    That's Coyotesfan97. He was running his AUG for most of the course, but but borrowed Ogre's Sig for some drills that required shooting from the left side of cover.
