I wish they had released quality 28mm WWII infantry instead.

They look nice - depending on price I may pick up some additional vehicles for new projects but I already have a large commitment to Pendraken in 10mm. I just hope they support the line and don't stop with just the basic stuff.

Very nice, crisp looking examples there.  :)  However, the Pz IV in the link makes me think they modelled that casting based on the PSC model, i.e. the split crew commander’s hatch with skirts. Definitely photographic evidence to support such a choice, but it is still an uncommon one.

They look good. I’ve shed loads of 10mm stuff, so will be interested to see what size these are in comparison to other ranges, particularly Pendraken and Pithead.

Wot's that all about with their British Infantry?
The Jerry's (as usual) are fully catered for with rifles, smgs and anti tank weapons... our lads are all stuck with rifles?

They look good, but they do have excellent paint jobs!

Would have been nice to have a few options on the sprues, like PSC do. Its good the Stug has separate side skirts, but a short 75mm gun would have been a handy option (although I guess this is a later hull).

But the PzIV has the side skirts moulded on, which limits it a bit more.

But they are nice simple kits which will be quick to build, which is good for gaming models.

Will be good to see the sizes of these, so I can compare against the Pithead and Pendraken tanks I already have. They are pretty much the same price as existing metal ones - might have thought they would be a bit cheaper especially as only available in multipacks.

Fred, I agree on the skurtzen - would have been nice if separately molded for easy customizing.

Hey, the PDF painting guides (nice ones too) are available for each model when clicking (Quick Shop) on each model - the Pz VI H example -

Wow, that's some painting guide! Would work for much large scale tanks too I think.

Puts my spray in base colour, wash, dry brush method to shame...

The painting guides do look useful.

Ah, the 1/200 vs 10mm debate. I too have masses of Skytrex 1/200.  I reckon they are 8-9mm, and indeed I use the "oversize" Mainforce Miniatures" 1/300mm perfectly well with my armour.

I think 1/200 morphed into 10mm just as 25mm eventually spawned 28mm.

Unfortunately it is a case of Caveat Emptor!
