Gunners 28mm WWII Thread, Volksgrenadiers

Postby Gunner Dunbar » Sat Apr 25, 2015 12:21 pm

Hi guys

Some Warlord Games SS I have finished on commission, I have mixed feelings towards these figures, most of them are nice, proportions are good, but a couple of the poses are a bit funny, some have cartoonish faces, others are quite nice, and the one running with his rifle across his chest has the most absurd head I have seen on a 28mm figure, his helmet goes below his nose, there's no way he could see, but overall I think they are OK.

Hi guys

Have just finished making/paint 64 plastic Warlord German Grenadiers, a big job, around 65hrs work.

As far as the kit goes, I like them better then the metal Bolt action figs, they are better proportioned and the faces are less cartoony, due to them being plastic the detail isn't as crisp as the metals, but they are still pretty good, my only issues with them is they really could do with more arm options, they need a straight left and right carrying arm so you can pose them carrying weapons at the trail, and they need a pointing arm, it's pretty cliché but good for command poses, also they don't have any shoulder boards/straps, it would be interesting to see how the parts interchange with the other Warlord German plastic infantry kits, I have a project forming in the back of my mind, but that's for the distant future.

Hi guys, just finished a batch of WWII US GIs, I believe these are bolt action figures, not bad apart from a couple of cartoony faces, all comments welcome.

Hi guys

Finished this batch of 28mm FJs, wanted them to be suitable for any front, so added in some desert yellow helmets/pants, these are mostly Warlords plastic FJs, with 4 metals mixed in. I'm pretty impressed with this plastic set, they are very nice, however, I think they have used some parts from the Grenadiers set (the officers head) would have been nice if it was all new.

Really lovely work! I wish I could afford to get some figures painted up by you. (I might use your services for a figure or two down the line)

Hi guys

2 batches of Germans finished on commission, a mix of figures, Warlord, Victory force (without bases) and the odd Black tree design, of the 3 I like the BTD first then warlord then VF, Warlord would be the best if they got rid of the cartoony faces.

Hi guys

A batch of German and US Paras finished on commission, these are from offensive miniatures, the first time I have painted this companies figs, they are on the smaller end of the scale for 28mm, and wouldn't mix well with Warlord or Artizan, but would probably suit Perry's figs (though I have not seen Perry's WWII in the hand) just heard they are also on the smaller end, I like the US figs more than the Germans, they look more serious and realistic, but overall they are all OK.
