Weíve had a couple of setbacks which has delayed us, hopefully we will get on top of these problems quickly so it shouldnít be too long now.


Here is some more eye candy to enjoy.

You would swear you are looking at 54mm figures, not 28mm !

Excellent work. Very nice harmonious proportions. The MG 08 is also the right size. Great faces and also nice that the sergeant wears a peaked cap. Bushy moustaches included  :o. I would prefer helmets or spiked helmets for the gunners, but that is no criticism.
I am especially looking forward to the French :)

Beautiful sculpts.
Is there any chance of a moving HMG crew with two men carrying the gun on its mount ?

Your painting technique makes me curious.
Would you mind explaining it a little bit . Do you use white primer?

I use mr surface grey primer.


I mostly use acrylic  from a mixture of manufactures I do use enamels and oils but mostly for a wood affect
I start with the face and once I get this right I block out the main colours of the uniform
Then pick out the belts and do the highlights Not much more to it than that if you have a look at the images below I think you’ll get the jist of what it is I’m trying to say

These truly are magnificent. Best WWI release I've seen in ages and ages.

Hoping to see some Sturmtruppen eventually!

I canít see why we wouldnít do some Sturmtruppen , but I must get the basics released first .

Hereís another French figure which Iím quite pleased with.
