It is a militia:
Definition: The term militia is commonly used today to refer to a military force composed of ordinary citizens to provide defense, emergency law enforcement, or paramilitary service, in times of emergency without being paid a regular salary or committed to a fixed term of service
Thus this equals MILITIA
Combined with the original references: Blackhawk Down, The Wild Geese, Shoot 'Em Up, Children of Men, Resident Evil
Which are mostly militias, and military organizations.
The though of combing the 2 ideas of ZBL, NFAC, is folly. ZBL is a specialization, while NFAC is a broad category, the miniatures in my mind are destined to be armed with a variety of Assault Rifles, and outdated machine guns, and maybe some pistols.
The idea of a militia that would fight off Delta Force or fight in a civil war being armed with pipes, and actually the chainsaw is ridiculus.
The idea that a sprue that has 80% combining with a sprue that has 13% that is based on a completlly diffrent idea is also ridiculus, what in the hell is a near future armed civilian/militia man going to do with a chainsaw? nothing. And this sprue is the 80%, not ZPL. No combining. The majority of people who bought this sprue also would have had a choice to buy ZPL. They didn't.
no they should not be combined. Ever. Different ideas, diffrent variety of weapons, different types of people. I think it was created by someone who wanted thier sprue to be fast tracked. Personal opinion of course.
And Civilians are Militias. Thats what Militias are, Armed Civilians.
In the description it mentions irregular civilian forces in almost any 3rd world
country, which is MILITIA. Not rioter throwing a rock at police. That is not an armed civilian, that is not a revolutionary, that is not civil war. That is a riot. Not part of the description of this sprue.
And I will continue spitting this if anyone wants to hijack this sprue.
