Solfig - French Legion Birhakeim

Posted by guilhem on 15 Jan 2012, 11:50

Solfig (retrokit France) available on Tracks and troops will release a new figures set in 1/72.
It 's about French legion in Africa during the WWII, more exactly in 1942 in Birhakeim.
I am the one who create the figures. But I am not a professionel , I let you tell me what you think about my work.
My plan is to create about 30 figures and the whole, and I can basically make 2 per week.

These look great, guilhem. I look forward to seeing these later in the year.

Solfig don't do 'big' sets - will these be released as a collection of small sets, or is that out of your control? (It's probably up to Solfig, I guess?)

Solfigs are available from Tracks and Troops, a shop that gives excellent service and has good prices.

I am agree with you PDA.
You prefer a big set who can be used for wargame.
I can explain your wishes.
Do you want a box like italeri with 50 soldiers?
With a lot of positions.
But if we do that the price will be more expensive like a italeri box.

Thanks PDA! :-D

@Guilhem A larger box would be easier, although I wouldn't mind buying smaller sets either.
