Size comparison !

Here is a comparison of the 4 main manufactures for which I have figures.

From left to right we have Plastic Warlords, Metal Warlords. Perry plastic and Black tree design.

You see that while the other three are quite similar in size and thickness of arms/legs/heads Perry's are more thin (perhaps more anatomically accurate) and seems smaller than the others...

German Late War Infantry

Here are my first two platoons of German for late war. They are two squads with a mix of Assault Rifles and rifles. Each squad has a sergeant and a LMG. I also have an officer with a man for the platoon command. The miniatures are Black tree design and I really like them: very good detail and poses variation: out of 15 or more men just one or two repeated figures...
Till now I used them mostly for volksgrenadiers in support of my Fallschirmjagers and in general they performed very well... I hope in the future to use them in more glorious roles such as sturmpionieers.

The last items (e.g. the officer and most of the rifle armed men) were painted using the speed painting technique used in the warlord website to paint the russians. I really like the overall effect.

First rats from the desert !

These are my first rats !
I am quite happy of the final result but I overall don't like so much the Perry's plastics since they are too small compared to the other minis I have... not yet fully sure if I will complete such project or freeze it !

I am particularly proud of the arty observer that I modified from the standing radio operator !

The only pity i s the poor quality of the photo I did... maybe Santa Claus will bring me a good camera !
