Frank Ziegler Miniatures - The better Ultima Ratio in 1/72

Posted by Koppi on 29 Apr 2017, 06:58

Today I want to show you Frank Zieglers renaissance miniatures in comparison with the new releases of the company Ultima Ratio UR 007 and UR 008.
I know Frank Ziegler personally and I like his sculpts.
I hope that my report will make his range more prominently.
Have fun with the pictures.

Koppi thanks for this post.

More people should follow your example:

pay some special attention more often to the independent, small sculptors and producers.
Instead of directing all the attention on plastics from the well known big companies.


Those big companies need our attention too, I think nobody gets rich by producing scale figures. But the small companies working in metal and resin need our attention (and wallets) even more.

Hear, hear! Couldn't agree more with this. The output of the big companies is fine when you need large numbers of figures at a reasonable price. But it is the figures and models of those smaller producers, often on exotic and unique topics, which make our hobby really come to life. I have just received a parcel with some of the fine stuff made in resin by Phersu - none of this would be available in plastic from any of the big players.

Thanks a lot for your replies. Today there are so much small companies, we should support. O.k. for Wargamers plastic figures are great, because they are cheap. But for diorama builders the output of smaller companies is so much better: More poses, more epochs, more variety.
I really like them.
