From KevinS: 28mm WWI Early War German Officers (10 points)



From Kevin:
These two early First World War German staff officers present an interesting comparison - the corpulent Junker and his gaunt colleague - both in 28mm.  I'm not sure who the manufacturer is.  
I spent some time researching the color for the uniforms, consulting various Osprey publications and also Mollo, as well as scouring internet sources.  I ended up choosing a feldgrau that was on the grey rather than the green end of the spectrum.  
I wanted my early war Germans to have a different feel about them in comparison to the more greenish hues I'd used for the late war period.  I'll be describing the process in greater detail on my blog.

Great work Kevin! As I mentioned to you when we were chatting I think these are from the Renegade Great War range. I quite like the slim fellow. He looks as if he should have a cigarette holder and a well-placed duelling scar. And I quite like that captured British tank in the background as well! 

These two German officers will give Kevin 10 points. Very nice work.

  1. I like these very much. The skinny chap would make a good representation of the colonel in 'A Fistful of Dynamite'.

    Well done.

  2. Those sculpts are nice and your brushwork really brings them to life. That tank in the back ground is very cool!
