Being a plane guy I surprised myself by buying a figure to go with my 1/32 Italeri Mirage 111C. I spotted it on another web site I won’t mention in these hallowed halls. It’s a 1/32 French fighter pilot circa the 1960’s modelled in a pose climbing out of the cockpit. From Reedoak Models. Their sculpting looks exceptional on the web so will be curious to see what it looks like in the resin. 

God knows how I will paint it :unsure:

Saw these nice metal figures,so thought why not,From the Warlord figures in the Black Powder range,twelve 28mm Colonial Regiment mixed figures and twelve 28mm HighLanders,all figures are nicely sculptured and the sword hilt on the Scots is a real treat.

Warlord figures

Looking forward to seeing them being painted in a WIP, always nice to see how others execute their projects.

Nice figures Jim, whoever sculpts them  knows his/her human anatomy unlike some of their other sculptors. Looking forward to seeing them progress.

Excellent choices Jim. The latest(UK) issue of Wargames Illustrated has a sprue of 10 Imperial Romans as a giveaway. Might be worth a look.

Here's the alpine figure! It is a great sculpt! The detail is exquisite.

It comes in a really nice package, foam protect the top and bottom from damage.

Backed this on Kickstarter... Arrived way ahead of the actual game. This is truly a God compared to your typical tabletop miniature. Not sure what to do with it - put it into storage after shocking swmbo.

 

That's not me nor my picture, just scraped from one of the gen-con blogs. This thing is really that huge. Weight is about 5 kg. Oh my... I can feel the insanity creeping around the corners of my brains!

Better be quick... Prices are already 2 to 3 times above Kickstarter with the usual auction portals. Which had a hefty 150$ Pricetag.

 

To be honest, I don't know if I want to keep it. It is huge, I wanted it, quality is good, but the sculpt does not exactly feel right to me. As I said - it was put in storage. Won't become any cheaper any time soon.

Love flicking through this thread. Thanks to all the contributors. Am always one for a bit of nostalgia. Me and my mates used to love playing with soldiers when we were lads. I still have all mine from the 70s.

Id love to have had the amount of choice available now, back then. Used to just have Airfix and then Matchbox. Then I remember coming across some Atlantic figures, Indian regiment used to be a favourite. As a result I still buy random packets of 1/72 scale.

Recently got these Finnish WW2 figures.
