I don't think I'll bother with these, they seem way to small to fight against my WOTR army.

They do however seem to scale with, Foundry and the original BAM range (Hicks masterpieces), and do seem to be a good '1/56' size, unlike some 28mm which are more 1/48-ish 28mm ;)
Other ranges which these will fit include - TAG Japs  and hopefully Brigade Japs (which again are Hicks master pieces.
Commission Painting undertaken, PM or email me.

I have to admit to be being curious as to how they will compare with Japanese ranges out there... I know there are some quite tall Japanese folk, but this might be a case of all of them now being taller.

;)

Working on the basis that the Perry's can apparently do no wrong though, surely it is the already existing ranges that are incompatible with the new Perrys?

:D

Thanks Aly. I am definitely going to do one of those...  ;)

But maybe they do italian heads for conversion with DAK-Plastic. I think it will work...

NurgleHH,

I hardly believe that.
The Italian equipment was totally different from the German one.
So a LOT of conversions should be necessary.
Let apart the weapons themselves.

Anyway, I think you just have to wait.
When Warlord will issue the Italian army list for Bolt Action, plenty of plastic/metal/whatever Italian miniatures will be available! ;)

Ciao
Marco

I must say that I'm rather disappointed about the size. It's just a tad more than I think looks reasonable. But OK, I'll wait and see what the DAK are like. Price is probably going to win me over no matter what...

I find it all a bit peculiar though.

I think you know it better then me. But I think warlord will not make plastic italians. I think there are not enough customers for it, even if italy is a big market.
For me it is ok, I think metal is better than plastic. Maybe in some years the costs for plastic-modelling get down, because these 3D-printing-thing will be opened for a wider market. Like Laserprinters. Our first black and white-printer was 10 times expensiver than the color modell I use now.

Future will bring the answer...

Hearing is one thing, getting hot brass down your back is quite another. Don't try this at home, the Bren ejects downwards.

Still it looks cool.  :)

Ah, the joys of home printing. No doubt by then, the Canons and the Konicas of this world will have worked out that they should price the cartidges or the resin refill equivalents at approximately half the price or more of the printer itself and they will run out after you've printed two sprues.   :D
