Hi Ultravilliansmurf I have finished my first batch of twelve figures from this set, they went together easily and are in general nicely detailed. I have only used sidearms and rifles as my figures are for interwar use (1932) so no Brens or SMGs...



More on them here...

Hopefully the drought of rifle arms can be sorted out by mixing in arms from other sets. However from the WWI German set I have from Wargames Atlantic - they don't seem to scale well with other manufacturer's plastic kits.

These figures have arms that are quite chunky. At best they'd work with Warlord's range - if you work on covering up the joins. I'd bought the Wargames Atlantic figures hoping they'd work with my Perry stuff (based on all the folk saying how small these models were supposed to be). However they're well on the Heroic scale if anyone's curious.

Great Escape Games recently showed off a plastic Wild West gunslinger set that could maybe be mixed in with these figures for variety too - if you say buy single sprues from Ebay.

Wargames Atlantic's said that they have more WWII sets coming. We'll have to see how they handle their second Partisan set. Particularly if its more male figures - so the parts can be interchanged - or if its a female set. It may wind up being that their sets exist in their own ecosystem as far as parts interchanging goes due to their weird proportions.

Great work!  Those figs look really nice.

Oddly enough (I'm a former tanker), I like the stacks of tank hulls behind them, too... :)

This is my plan, both to "civilianize" the weapon options and Americanize the fashion somewhat...

So has anyone assembled any yet?

I used some of these for Volkssturm and Arrow Cross militia, I will post them when painted in a thread.
