The typical local Taliban militia will wear a Shalwar Kameez, and some type of headdress as a turban, or Khapul. Sometimes they wear just this, or a combat jacket or vest or chest rig over top of the shalwar kameez (Enduring Freedom FoF: Osprey publishing).
I really had neglected the accuracy of my modern bad guys until recently. I took a mix of the urban resistors, chechens, and a few Mars figures and converted them to better poses as well as added Khapuls and Shalwar Kameezes from air drying clay (with wood glue reinforcement of course). I then painted them in the common colors I see in other people's armies.
|I love how the Chechen set turned out.|
|I realize now that hatlessness is forbidden by the Taliban. They are only a few of the figures though and I may fix them later on.|
|The two on the left have M81, and the other has a flora pattern combat vests.|
|These are some of my favorite. The Khapul on the lead figure came out the best.|
|A bad thing to see.|
|An old Mars (actually made from chopped up ESCI I think) figure as compared to the Orion Chechen: thank goodness for modern mold making...|
|The whole force. I plan to use the more "western" looking guys as foreign fighters; that way they will be suitable for Afghan, Iraqi, and a countless number of "Arab spring" countries.|
