Hello Kekso

no problem.. for me it is only possible to let them be produced in white metal .. because i talked to Andreas (Linear-A) about the cost for a Set of figures in Plastik... and these are very high..

For Civilians there already exists a Set from Germania and one from me.. which is not officially at Hagens.. :oops: :oops:

As the demand was high for a bayonet, so have we now added it.
Together with another pose, we know that he needs a shave before he could join the army so it will be done in the coming days.

@Michel Great figures, but not any time period we will go into at the moment.


Here is a print from the fantasy segment of our figures:

Another morning, time to rush to work!

What do people think about making this same pose but with slightly variations in the movement and different faces, just to get more dynamic when using many of the same figure?
Would that be something worth for us to put time in, or is it better that we put the time in a totally different pose?

The inniskilling kneeling is a fantastic masterpiece, ideal to create a square, with some variations (perhaps no hat or bandaged head), and of course with bayonet in the musket. For the Inniskilling running man, imho, I think the both ways (slight variations or differents poses running) are fine. It will depend of the diorama or scenary.

I agree with Pedro. slight variations are enough. Personally, i don't like running poses because they rarely did, so looks awkward in a diorama. If you could make them stand firm like that or slightly advancing, that would make them more useful, either in line or in square. At Waterloo, the allies hardly moved from their position until the end of the day, so most poses should truly be rather static, but in combat poses (firing, loading etc.)
It would even be more brilliant if you could compare the poses to the existing ones from other manufacturers such as Strelets and Revell. The latter have already done good poses for a square formation, but they could use more diversity. I noticed from my last order that your 1/72 figures (23,5mm), fit perfectly with the Revell figures. Oh, did i mentiion that your figurers are a dream come true? absolutly top notch!

On your webpage it says
"... since this is still a hobby of ours"

Well, I'm not sure this looks like a hobby anymore. Keep up with excellent work. BTW: I've placed an order recently and I'm very excited to see your figures IRL.

Last month has the release of new figures been a bit chaotic, so for this month has we decided in addition to all the random releases so will we also try and release one new German and one new American WW2 soldier every day!
(this will only be updated on the facebook page)

So stay tune for today's release!

I have always disliked the poses of WWII Wermacht men throwing a stick grenade with the right hand while holding a rifle in the left, as it took two hands to arm the grenade and that would mean the soldier picked up the rifle after activating the grenade but before throwing it, surely a senseless and dangerous act. It looks like you have left the left hand empty here, so I feel it is a much more realistic configuration.

Not so easy to give you a like.
A like for quality, detail of the figure.
This kind of poses are more or less in the huge amount of WWII plastic figure boxes or resin, white metal sets.

My hope was more wounded, fallen soldier like in your superb ACW range.

Or a female Russian tank crew. Who not simply standing. They do something, like cleaning the gun or cooking tea or something like that.

Or partisans, the Warsaw uprising, young people, boys with a mix of civil clothes and German army uniform. under a German steel helmet that is too big for the running boy.

As an example:
I use a boy from an Noch civil railway people set and put him a German field cap on top.
You can do that for sure so much better.

A camera team (Kriegsberichterstatter) would be very nice too.
