New 28mm early ww1 range(Steve Barber Models)
« on: August 20, 2018, 07:04:21 PM »
Steve Barber Models has released several miniatures based on the first year of the conflict.

https://www.stevebarbermodels.com/107--world-war-one

There are a variety of new poses that differ from other manufacturers.
Also including head packs with 12 individual heads in each that can be used for conversion.
So far there are for French infantry in kepi and Zouaves.

I've used them to convert GWM French which imo fit perfectly. Scale wise they are compatible with GWM and Mutton Chop.

Most of the miniatures come with heads unattached to allow for greater variety.

Released so far:

I have ordered some of the Zouaves, Germans and head packs and they are a joy to paint.

GWM French with head from Steve Barber head pack:



Prone German infantryman:



Some of the upcoming sculpts that are waiting for casting:

Based on the painting "Goodbye Old Friend":

Prone Zouave firing from behind cover:

And there are more to come.



He keeps adding updated on his facebook site on the process of the range.

Very nice. I like the last sculpt of the chap practicing his ventriloquist skills in a quite moment before battle.  ;)
I am going to build a big wargames army, a big beautiful wargames army, and Mexico is going to pay for it.

Congrats on having Steve commission your work! I wish you all the best for your project. My project is having Steve sculpt miniatures for the Hungarian Up-Rising and First Italian War of Unification 1848-49.

All the best,

Helen

Thank you Helen.  Steve has done a wonderful job on your ranges. Lots of variety in units and nice uniforms. The Hungarian command group in particular attracted my attention. Its a very interesting period that I have not seen done before.
Best of luck to Your project as well.

Thanks very much,however, alot of the kudos must go the Geoff and Ed whom have participated in commissioning a number of miniatures some of which are awaiting to be released. I've came in early last year when Geoff was starting both campaigns. I'm just fleshing out the ranges starting with Hungary and Austria and eventually Italy.

I love the General Bem vignette. One of my favourite commissions.

All the best,

Helen

Steve has just finished sculpting a new Zouave trumpeteer:




- Update on German Hussars:
Seperate arms for the Hussar are considered so that gamers can decide if they want them holding lance, sword or carbine. In that case 2-3 variants of each option will be provided over time.

Thank you Helen.

Last post was removed so I repost it again.

Decided to use this thread for future released and development.

Among the newest releases are a Vignette of a British cavalryman mourning his dying horse:





And a kneeling French officer trying to lure the enemy out using his kepi:




Recently finished sculpts awaiting release includes:

German Hussars charging. Two variants with separate heads:




Separate heads will have two variants, one revealing the totenkopf and one full cover.
With and without facial hair.
Two arm variants(lance and sword) provided. Two of each for variety.

And this French officer urging his men on for a brave (even if futile) charge:





There are further more sculpts being worked on now and planned ahead. Advancing and skirmishing poses for UK(first), Germany and France.
