Cowboys

These are 25mm cowboys from an unknown maker. The bases have " Hong Kong" stamped and I'm sure these are recasts. But of what, I don't know. I managed to buy packs in different colors, some in sober greys and brown but also a few in garish yellow, red and blue. Pretty cool poses!

1:72 Panzergrenadieres

Italeri reissue of ESCI's German Panzergrenadieres. This set has the same figires as ESCI's 1:32 release but with more poses. The set has a sapper with a mine, support weapons such as a bazooka, a heavy machinegun, mortars and a flamethrower. There are also three prone poses, a machinegunner and two riflemen. The figures look early war.

1:72 DAK from Caesar Miniatures


More WW2 German Afrika Korp infantry, this time from Taiwanese company Caesar Miniatures. This company makes really nice figures which are crisply sculpted, nicely posed and cleanly produced figures. Their 1:72 figures do not come in sprues and some sets have separate weapons and accessories.






These DAK troopers are very nicey done. I like the choice of poses as well as the detailing that just pops out. The level of detail is impressive, especially in this small scale.






Supreme Egyptians


A few of the figures in Supreme's Egyptian polybag. I didn't include the horses and chariot because the horse were recasts of the Italeri ones from their crusader and teutonic sets and looked off for these.





Goose Step 1-2!


The goose step is a special marching step performed on formal military parades and other ceremonies. While marching in parade formation, troops swing their legs in unison high off the ground, while keeping their legs straight and unbent. Originating in Prussian military drill in the mid-18th century, the step was called the Stechschritt (literally, "piercing step") or Stechmarsch.

The figures are largish 54mm ( almost 60mm really) recasts of a Marx Warriors of the World WW1 German soldier "Friedrich Baden."
