I´ve done these because of the multitude of reference photos available in the IDFs photo stream on flickr. And because no-one I´m aware of had them available in their modern gear with the TAR-Assault Rifle and Negev SAW when I started this. So this was one of the few opportunities to create something unique with many reference pics. You can see that the mostly white figures in front are older and the cork-mounted figs are recent additions to the projects, overall better looking and more refined.
Well, in the meantime there has been a release of 20mm Wartime IDF figures with exactly the same kit:

Here´s the backside:
I´m a bit dissatisfied with the grey putty as it doesn´t turn out very well on pics. I´m probably going for a mix of silver-grey and white as in the one vest above, which seems to be much better for contrast.
M16 Guerillas are still WIP, I´ll be posting updates as I progress!
