Xan--

Very cool metal guys. Especially the DAK. You should make some in greatcoats and helmets in action. I have seen war footage of that setup, but have never seen it modeled in 1/72 scale or 20mm.

Well made figures.
:yeah:

But why always man in combat? Each big or small plastic manufacturer do exactly that.

There are so many options:
- A soldier sit and check his footsore he get. beside lay his boots.
- A soldier who is doing the clip to get his helmet off. With both hands.
-A soldier who is leaning at the wall, tree or what else. A figure with his body in an angle. Smoking a
cigar.
- A soldier who do the toilet in the nature. Verlinden do one figure but in 1/35.
- Russian tank woman.
- A man riding a cicle without wheels to produce the power for the radio, radio operator.
- refugees, woman, old, child, fat people ...

At some point you're right.

First of all, our figures are made to be sold in the market respectively to wargames standards as well as customer's preferences. But we don't dismiss opinions like yours and to tell you truth in the past, former Fantassin and Warmodelling had some soviet female soldiers references for instance radio operators, nurses, snipers, tank commander and traffic controllers as well.
All I have to say to you is that they will be released again as soon as I can.

and secondly, according to "causal" poses, I have to say that I did a lot of them in the past, both Napoleonic and WWII figures, and of course, they will be done in the future too.

Finally, thank you very much for your opinion and I hope that I have answered your questions and doubts.

Yes, of course.

Thank you very much for your question.
