Anyhow, I have been busy doing WWII stuff. I know this year was supposed to be all about the War of Spanish Succession but my opponent said I was painting faster than he, so I thought I'd do some WWII to slow me down.
I've also discovered the game Battlegroup from Iron Fist Publishing and, for the time being, this will be the WWII rules that I intend to use.
So... I painted some Germans and some British infantry recently. Being 1/72 scale that are easy. I've painted about 90 odd figures in the past couple of weeks. I started with painting some Valiant Germans. Great figures but I'm just not certain about the scale. It's all wrong. They are too big for 1/72 - 20mm and too small for 25mm (or 28mm). But they look great and the price is also very attractive.
Here they are:
I then decided to paint up some Zvezda Germans. These also look great and they're very detailed for their size but they seem a bit delicate for gaming purposes. Also, I'm not very keen on the MG34 pose. In fact the poses, over all are pretty limited.
And I also did a platoon of Brits by Plastic Soldier Company. These are really nice. The right scale, solid plastic and with a good range of poses. They also go well with metal AB 20mm which I'll be using for heavy weapons and other stuff. Actually the command stand below are AB 20's. I'm very tempted to forgo the plastic Krauts I've painted so far and just use AB.
Keep in mind that these pics are only a few of the actual figures that I've painted recently.
