That's the boy.

They come from the IM catalogue. It's what you pay for shipping if
you order direct from Irregular to the US.

Well, I would imaging Mr. Kovel buys in bulk at trade prices and 
gets them shipped by surface, or some such. Price for one Infantry
stand would be 15p + at least 25% and then convert into $, which
would come to about 30 cents.

Tim Jones compared them to Copelands vehicle and I must say I don't
seem to be as impressed with these as the rest of the world. For a
start they strike me as well oversize, and I don't like the surface
detailing. It does not seem to represent anything obvious, it's 
just irritating clutter. I have a few companies of CMD APCs and I
spent a certain amount of time filling in the surface detail with
miliput, because I thought it detracted from the miniature.
