I am looking forward for this set! I hope they are similar sized to great war miniatures.

Definitely getting a set myself. Even if they don't quite fit with my Great War Miniatures, they'll be ideal for conversions.

I'll admit - that pic has dulled my excitement somewhat. Something about those shoulders just doesn't feel right...

Like those.
Agee with some of the shoulder/arm joins looking a bit chunky but still nice figs.

They are nice, but the helmets don`t look very good.

The German WW1 helmet seems to be really difficult to sculpt. A lot of figures from different manufacturers have problems with these.

Didn't notice it at first either... should be pretty easy to shave a few mm on them though :?

The latest, with chunky arms, image of the WWI Germans-still very tempted.

I noticed on their website that these are paints of the 3D prints, not the final plastic sprues. So they may not be quite as chunky. Just going to have to wait n see.

Ahh, well spotted I hope you're right-I should really read what they say rather than just look at the pictures.

That gas mask doesn't quite fit right on the figure.  I think that helmet appears too small for the WW 1 Stahlhelm (which had a fuller silhouette than the WW 2 helmet and a more protruding "bill").

Well, the Wargames Atlantic Germans are on pre-order (release date June) Here's a link to the blog with pictures and a comparison shot-some of the issues raised (shoulders Gas Masks) still seem to be evident but what the heck I getting a box, perhaps two..https://wargamesatlantic.com/products/german-infantry-1916-1918?variant=31552407404642
