I reviewed all the miniatures last night and i think they are cracking! Mike has added some nice little touches like a scarf on one of the artillery crewman, the Boyes in a nice kneeling pose using a rock/rubble for the barrel and the 2 inch mortar in the prone position with the firer looking though...

This would be helpfull indeed. I am interested in doing some support items such as 2pdr and Bren carrier, but we will have to see how well this first release is received first. ;)

I am really, really hoping to have some pictures up by the end of the month for perusal (and review).

Title on their site is:

Australian Army (ANZAC)

The Slouch Hat thing is very true, but because it is such an iconic item, it seems to be the one "known" way to identify them. All "non" Australian producers of Australians have them in Slouch Hats.

They are a generous size, but having just done some size comparisons i would not say they are noticably different to AB proportions. The Brit Gun crew go well with SHQ 6 Pdr's. I do think the support weapons etc could be used with Valiant without much of a worry. I probably would not stand them side...

I played some Axis and Allies "War at Sea" a while ago. Now game aside, the scale of the ships (1/2400 i think) was quite good. I would be interested in Naval and WWI from that. :)

Well my knowledge on SYW is next to naught so i cannot comment on their historical accuracy. Having seen the range in the flesh, i can say they are nice looking miniatures. With 50 figures per pack and if Rivet counting is your thing then you are certainly not obliged to use the "Prussian Standard B...

Your referring to the current range? Feedback i get is they are the nicest figures on the market in that scale! :wink:

(You are talking about the Old Glory 15s "Age of Reason" range?)
