Zvezda Germans

Just like the Russians the Zvezda Art of tactic Germans have a limited range of poses, marching and firing with rifles and knelling with an SMG. The MMGs are excellent and fill a useful gap, though I would have preferred a loader rather than an observer.
In the background are my Pegasus German mortar teams that I upgraded at the same time. I also mixed in a couple of Fujimi figures (third row)

Very nice! I have a bunch of 1:72nd and they are all IMEX but I like Zvezda work better. Keep up the work!

The hard plastic is much better but the current infantry pack is limited in poses and the rifles are rather slim.

Will,

Unfortunately, Hoffman's "Army of the Blue King" only goes slightly beyond the WSS. I checked both OMM and Caliver and it seems that there is a book that only OMM list in stock specifically on the Bavarians in the WAS. It is:

1-49859 Manley, Stephen WAR OF AUSTRIAN SUCESSION:V9 Danish & German State 8.5x11, uniform details of line Infantry/Cavalry,Artillery/Support troops, b/w drawings for Denmark, Hanover, Bavaria, Paltinate, Saxony, and Hesse.1 vol, 44 pgs 2002 HOPEWELL, OMM PUBLISHING
NEW-softcover ......$12.00

Sorry I can't be of more assistance.

Bill

what do you use to base the individual figures

Conor, the bases are just thin card circles the same size as pennies 20mm diameter.
