Well, it depends....

I certainly respect the views of others. And I have memories of the Zvevda SYW Prussian grenadiers that are not pleasant.

But....for a unit I'd really like, I'd buy it if each figure came in 6 parts.

There is one strong argument in favour of multi-part sets: by slightly adjusting the arms, head etc, you get slightly different figures which adds to the realism.

For a change I agree, snap together maybe but having to assemble and glue is a No No

Re: Well, it depends....

I would like figures as they are now, but with extra heads included for those sets where a different bit of headgear would be helpful.

So WWII Germans wearing helmets and a few extra heads with caps, or WWII Americans with helmets but a few extra heads with Jeep caps.

I certainly don't want to have to glue heads on every figure in the box if not necessary.

And what about an entire set of germans with caps,nobody have done them!!!!

Re: Well, it depends....

Germans with caps
Preiser did/do them in 1/72nd scale. Like a lot of good stuff probably hard to get hold of now. Christian Florescu's site WWII Germans in 1/72 scale is the first place to go.

Preiser....not available here
By the way, how many of them?
It's a massive subject hardly covered...it's sad to see Afrika Korps soldiers painted feldgrau all around,so the demand exists

Would it be better to have a company like Caesar miniatures produce such products as they specialise in Third Reich subjects for continuity?
Strelet have produced very few Third Reich subjects - Police battalion (something that any third reich modeller needs for his Eastern front army) and the Stalingrad set come to mind.

As for separate heads no thank you.
