15mm Israeli minis from Khurasan

December 27th, 2015

Khurasan are very pleased to release their latest range of Modern Middle East figurines, the infantry of the Israeli Defense Force. These models are suitable starting in the mid-90s, upon the adoption of the very baggy mitznefet helmet cover, which is intended to break up the regular curvature of the helmet. It is very commonly worn but not all soldiers use it all the time, so some models have been made without it.

Each figurine is provided with an optional backpack. The troops often leave their packs in the APC but they can often be seen wearing them — in Lebanon in 2006 they were frequently worn.

Three different sets are available. One set has the Tavor rifle, which has been used since the mid 2000s and has been increasingly widely adopted. Another has the M16 (usually very heavily rebuilt, often to resemble the US M4 version) to cover the army up to 2007 or so, but that rifle is still in frequent use. The third set has heavier weapons and includes four figurines with the Negev and one each with the Shipon and B-300 rocketlauncher.
