Some changes to the production miniatures.

Looking around the web, the most common suggestions, complaints, what have you, is that the figure appears top heavy. Rightfully so, this is caused by the legs not being true to scale and the shoulders being too wide.

The arms and shoulders need to clear the chest projections so that you can pose the figure, I can however make some changes to the arms and changes to the legs so that the figure has a much more “correct” form.

After polling my project supporters, there was a strong consensus that we use the more “correctly” scaled miniature for the final production models.

I would like to extend a heart-felt thank you to all the supporters that have graciously given to make this project a reality.

Although we have met and exceeded to project goal, I would like to encourage you to take part in the project. The cost to manufacture the prototypes and make the molds has still not been fully paid for. The project will need to reach roughly $7300.00 to be in the black and completely self-supporting.

If you have been on the fence, I hope you view the new more correctly scaled miniatures with favor and help fully fund the project.
Thank you for looking and for your support!

I hope you enjoy the changes.
All the best!

New plastic minis!

Metal minis


  1. Well I already rather liked them, but the subtle rescale made them even better. Excellent work!

  2. Wow, that does up the ante on them! Fantastic now.

    So hard to resist now...

  3. Okay, now you've got me. Are these going to be metal, resin, or plastic?

  4. They are metal...

    Plastic would require 60k+ start-up costs and resin creates all kinds of issues when doing large production as well as extra cost.

  5. Not to be a complete pain in the butt, but any chance that components will be available individually or could be swapped? I really like the Kriegsmarine bodies, but prefer the Sturmtruppen heads. Any chance that kind of preference could be accommodated?

  6. Thats a great question... I was just answering that same question on another forum :)

    I intend on making 5 pack heads available when I do the accessory kits so you can customize without purchasing a full mini... this will also include the non-helmet heads. I just need to work a few more up so you don't have a clone army.

  7. You now I really liked them before the change, but I do think that the new proportions look better :)

  8. Man I wish i could afford some of these works of yours, especially the crusader design but sadly to poor to get such things cept parts to convert and what not. maybe someday. tho these troop ones I could maybe afford =D

  9. Looking good. You changed precisely what I did not like about them. I cant wait for the Soviets now. Although I do wish there was a Sino split in the soviet faction.
