I use irregulars miniatures 6mm SF infantry bases, these are the ones
in the DS2 book. Irregular have an amazingly good mail order
service and the infantry are very cheap for large forces
They are a bit low on detail but at that scale you can paint
them as anything you like - the same figues can look like
light power armour or kakhi fatigues. They do an alien range
now and there are bases of 4 and two figures and various
GMS and ASW options.

Their address is in any UK WG mag or from Tom Gravolds
excellent suppliers list.

This can be augmented with expensive and baroque GW junk if required

I used to be in the SFSFW but I lapsed, there was a lot of in-fighting
going on and it was incredibly badly organised, you would subscribe and
all you heard when joining was getting your mags in a brown envelope
weeks later, no welcome letter or society details - nothing. I didn't
what my membership number was (required to get discounts) until I
it was on the address label of the envelope.

I get a lot more quality stuff a lot more regularly here. AFAIK
the SFSFW www home page (access from the UFT  stills holds relevant
information, I'd give it a try and make up your own mind.

Ah Evesham - I used to live down the road in Cheltenham.
I've spent many a day on the Avon.
