Hey guys, first post here.
I've recently unearthed a pile of 6 pack troopers I've had in the basement as I've finally carved out a private space in the house out of the way of my wife but where I can set up a little diorama.
I've been looking at Marauder Inc guns to give them some more realistic hardware, but is it possible to throw the flak vests and/or harnasses over my Cobra night watch troopers? The Marauder figures look to be slightly taller than these old 3" 3/4rs figures.. but it would help a lot to make these guys look better, and I'm not really looking to shell out a hundred bucks to replace them with 25th anni or 30th anni troopers.. besides, the rest of my library is predominantly vintage. (and my Viper Pit and Crimson guards look much better detailled than these Night Watch guys)
Also, would Marauder helmets fit, say, my Mamba pilot? I've lost his helmet.
Anyway, let me know if that would work to jazz these guys up. And if I can get pointed to any similar pics of vests on older figures? Thanks!

Your best bet is to hit this guy up for his black DG Cobra troopers and then put the Marauders vests on them.
Those 25th troopers are so out of date and pale in comparison to the newer builds.

Well, any new troopers will be significantly more expensive, ie, rather than $5 per trooper for holster rig+vest and pouches, I'm looking at about $10-15 per trooper for 15th anni, and $20+ for POC troopers. And then the style will jar against my vintage figures as well.
