Sojers German squad & Vickers Team on the move

In the last post I showed the first German figure that I painted & based from the Sojers range, now I have the rest of the squad finished. These are a fine range of figures- I wish they did more- I highly recommend them. I purchased mine from the Hobby Den in Ireland, but you could get them direct from Thoroughbred in the US . I found them to be relatively easy to paint, although Germans seem to have more fiddly pieces of equipment in different colours compared with the British, plus the camo gear.
My next German squad on the painting desk is from AB, some of the best figures out there, although this lot are showing some signs of age due to mould slippage (I assume).

Enjoy the "Sojers":


















I have also finished a British Vickers Team on the move, another entry for the 30mm base group build on The Guild. These chaps are from the Kelly's Heroes range of 20mm figures produced by Grubby Tanks. These figures are a bit chunkier than AB and most plastics, and not as chunky as Britannia Miniatures - Kelly's Heroes tend to mix in quite well with most figures though (my opinion of course).

  1. Great looking Kruats JS, the camo is perfect, looks like a nice range, but I have all the Huns I need, the vickers team is cool to.

    1. Thanks Dan, glad you like them. I'm starting out again with Germans, the plastics I had before I gave to a friend of mine (apart from the FJs), so I will be slowly building up a force based on an Infantry Division list in Battlegroup Overlord.

    1. Thanks Alan.
      Yes, the Kelly's Heroes figures paint up quite well, I think I have a few still to paint in the stash.

  9. Exquisite is the word that matches best with this body of work. I see it and it makes me long to get out my Brits and Huns and re-do the lot. Old story...too much stuff, too little time but it's a real pleasure to see examples of your gear to day-dream over.

    1. Thanks mate, very generous comments indeed.
      It seems I've become more of a painter and collector these days, not many games get played...probably because I'm just too knackered from work etc. to organise them (plus it's hard to find people who are keen to learn the rules and paint/collect figures). I do admire your set-up with sand table and a bunch of keen mates to have battles with- have fun :)
