|28mm WW2 German Command and medical assortment in 28mm - figures from Warlord Games' "Bolt Action" range.|
|German senior officer, in fur-lined winter coat.|
|MP-40 slung over the shoulder.|
That said, there are such a dizzying array of "official" German uniforms that it would not surprise me to learn that this, in fact, some kind of "M41 Special Sheep-Leather" coat or whatever...
|Artillery spotter (or, could be another NCO if required). Most prone 28mm castings are huge waste of space, but this one isn't bad at all, I actually like it.|
|This NCO is serious...he has two helmets!|
I suppose I could have knocked the head off and swapped in another, but that seemed like bad luck...so instead, I developed a back story. This fellow is a veteran NCO, but a superstitious one - he keeps his "lucky" helmet - still painted yellow - that carried him from Africa out to the Eastern Front. Now that winter is here, he wears a white-washed herlmet, but keeps his good luck charm still with him, regardless of the extra weight. When the weather conditions change back to spring/summer, he'll put the yellow-coloured lid back on, but until then, he just has it with him, for good luck...
|Medic assisting a wounded comrade.|
|Really cool sculpt from Warlord.|
|Vignette from Warlord games - this was a "throw in" with one of their 28mm German winter bundle deals.|
|The sculpting here is really, really well done - on all of these miniatures, in fact.|
This figure was included as a bonus in my order, although I suspect that it is available for purchase somewhere in the rabbit maze that is Warlord's web shop.
I am really, really enjoying painting the 28mm metal WW2 figures from Warlord. The sculpts have a lot of character, and are a real treat to paint. I'm still quite a ways away from playing a game with them, but I'm getting closer! I will also be looking at some other metal castings to augment the collection - I have some figures from Offensive Miniatures and Artizan coming soon - and I may give Empress a try as well.
