Gripping Beast Turks/Brits
« on: February 25, 2009, 09:55:59 PM »
The boys at GB have shown some upcoming releases of their Brits and Turks. There is some lovely poses designed by Soapy in this crowd (just scroll down a tad):

Releases are scheduled for the end of March.

Great stuff.  The new Warhammer The Great War supplement Over the Top is including basic Turk lists so timing is very good.

I was thinking of combining these with some Musketeer figures for ECW3.
Also the separate head- sets with Brodie helmets seem nice.
Perhaps suitable for converting Anglian models?

Soapy also just sculpted a really nice figure towards the "combat stress" appeal which I think we should all buy as its a good cause and I am sure going to be in the greater scheme of things relatively inexpensive as its something easy to add to an order.
You can get it from Figures in Comfort and Gripping Beast in a couple of weeks time and speaking with GB we may also add it as an item.

All proceeds go to the Combat Stress charity and there are more in the series. If this duplicates a topic else where, my apologises but I really like the pose. its on the GB site.
Kind regards

That's okay SM to add your voice here. We all are looking forward to seeing the mini that Soapy has designed, plus futher additions to the cause by other designers as well.

It will be a good thing for you to market this in your shop as well.

The Brodie heads work a treat with the anglian minis I used some with assaulto troops and also a couple on Musketeer IWI figures for variety

The Wolseley heads fit nicely on Great War Miniatures early war Brit bodies too.

The whole Woodbine separate heads thing is an absolute godsend. I can only hope they do more and more of them. Simply great for conversions.
