Recommended brand/kit

Recommended Posts

I'm just beginning to start painting figures. I have avoided it up until now and stuck to armour, but fancy a change. I'm particularly interested in British WW2 figures.

 

I usually stick to Tamiya and always find their kits to be great quality, but I'm not sure about figures. Could anyone recommend a brand, or maybe even a set, which would be a good starting point?

 

I'm looking for something not too expensive, about £10ish I suppose, but high mould quality.

Why not have a look at Masterbox. They mostly focus on American, German and Russian troops, but do have two or three pretty good sets depicting WW2 Brits and the figures are cheap enough.

How about this set?

With the same caveat, I'd suggest having a look at the sets by Mini Art such as this one;

In both cases I'd recommend replacing several of the heads, if not all, by aftermarket heads from Hornet.

Great! Thanks.

 

I've not heard of either of those makes. The MiniArt look particularly detailed and have a great range on their site:

I'll certain be picking some up :yes:

Goods luck with whichever figures you choose to have a go at. 

I've a project in mind for those MiniArt Royal Engineers and the NW Europe Tank Riders, but need to finish off a couple of different dioramas first.
