Here is a second section of Great War Germans which just happen to contain mainly figures from Great War Miniatures, along with a few more Renegade miniatures. While I really like the Great War mini’s proportions and load outs there are a few that had facial issues. These will be soon getting field dressings to cover up some of the casting issues. Maybe I am just spoiled by the normal insanely overpriced GW stuff I paint, but at least I never have to worry about important stuff like eye sockets or mouth lines not being properly there. I now understand why so many historical gamers don’t bother with eyes and a lot of facial details. It’s a shame, because other than that, the figures really are extremely nice.
This second section for my German force is a rifle section led by a “big man”. Also included is an even “bigger” man, both in size and rank, to marshal my Germans on the table.
It was brought to my attention as well, that the helmets do have covers on them… hmm, so hard to tell as there are no fabric lines or textures. At this point, I am just leaving them the grey helmet colour, even though it is historically inaccurate. Maybe at some point I will make it right, but at this point, I like the look better this way than one test figure I did with the cover painted up the right way. So, its a bit wrong, but too bad, they are mine :-)
One more section down, and my next section of Canadians is also nearing completion and should be sent in in a day or two. Then back to distractions, and trying to get a vehicle done for the next fortnight challenge.
Lovely work Byron! I have a couple units worth of these Renegade castings and I really like them. They're not as fine in detail as the Great War models (which are still my favourites) but I love their chunkiness and they are very easy to paint.
I'll make sure to point out the lack of helmet covers on these guys the next time we play. Its the least a friend can do. ;P
This rifle section of Landsers will give Byron 50 points. Great job!
