Some Assembly required (part one)

At Warfare I bought three Crossover Miniatures figures from (I think) Pendraken. The first figure completed (nearly) is their Super Soldier.

 The Patriot was an attempt by a British television company to produce a Costumed Hero series for the American market. Utilising a mixture of Canadian and American actors (and some dodgy accented British actors).

The patriot was the story of an American covert military unit, lead by the titular "Patriot" in his not very covert costume, in their operations against all manner of enemies.

By reusing story lines, locations and in some cases parallel filming, the series was produced cheaply even though there was a lot of European location work. Unfortunately it was not very successful, being shown only once in the US.
