Italeri 1/56 WW II Germans

Postby Captain Darling » Mon May 09, 2016 9:39 am

I bought up some Italeri 28mm WW II German plastic figures to create a skirmish force for some Two Fat Lardies rules I have. from what I have read on the net these are actually warlord figures.

Each box which creates 12 multi pose figures and includes a decent brush and a small vallejo German Fieldgrey paint pot. These figures take more time to prepare fpr paint tah one pice metal figures but I think its worth it. Every figure can be different.

I already have some Brits, Yanks and Soviets in this scale painted up so once I get these all done I'll be ready to game!

I've painted these to what I call gaming level so not quite up to the standard of my VSF figures.

Here's the first batch of 12!

They are nice figures (and early war Germans certainly do look smart), and your "tabletop" standard work on them is excellent.

It would be interesting to compare the price per figure difference between the Italeri 12 pack & the standard box of 30 marketed as Warlord Games' Blitzkrieg German Infantry.

Hey Oozeboss thanks for your comment a quick google search got the Warlord 30 figure box at around Aust$50 plus shipping and the Italeri 12 figure box with a paint pot and brush at Aust$20 - $25 plus shipping...

I picked up several of the Italeri boxes at Aust$18 a box including shipping so with the brushes and paint it was cheaper way for me...
