Commandos Compared

Here's some of my latest efforts with WW2 late war British commandos.
For those of you interested in getting some of them I hope the photos provide a useful comparison with regards to scale and style.


From left to right: Wartime Miniatures; AB Miniatures; Elhiem & Elhiem

Same figures back on

L to R: AB; Wartime; Elhiem. Taken under artifcial light

More Work in Progress. On left, Wartime, on right, AB.

A book I'm reading for painting motivation/research.

Here's an update on that Stuart that's on the painting desk:




Next post I will let you know about some cool new toys that the postman delivered......

    1. G'day Dux. thanks for you kind words- yes 20mm for my WW2 stuff, the only 28mm figures I have are Arthurians.

  3. The commandos are cracking, Sarge. So much nicer in 20mm than the 28mm Warlord commandos I put on my blog last week. Lovely.

    1. Thanks mate.
      For lifelike sculpting I recommend AB, but for value for money & reliable quality- Wartime Miniatures, which are cast in Australia.

  5. Wow, hard to believe those are 20mm! Good to see some guys in the leather jerkins as well for variety.

    1. They sure are :)
      Yes there seems to be quite a bit of pictorial evidence to show the jerkin was widespread in its use, but you don't see many figures sculpted with them.
