Re: New British Masters

The masters are all on Benno’s, albeit pictures not that great.

Re: New British Masters

I will give bennos a check out been a long time since I have been online as it has all been very quiet for obvious reasons

Re: New British Masters

Dear Allan,

There are also photos of the figs on Plastic Soldier Review, in the 'awaiting review' section.

They look good to me and I am pleased to have a set of each on the way to me (they have made land-fall with my 'local' supplier in Adelaide and will be shipped across to me soon).

Some people will be upset or unimpressed about the presence of a figure in the forage cap, but I embrace such variety as I am always happy to have flexibility with figures. Such figures provide options 'as is' or for conversions and have come in very, very handy for me.

Kind regards,

Re: New British Masters

yes just seen the new Nap British infantry on PSR, and i do like the figures in forage caps, very useful for conversions, hopefully this year will see release of the WSS sets sculpted by poor Anton
cheers Old John

Re: New British Masters

While I get what you mean about having variety, problem is those forage caps on British infantry who are in the midst of battle, would not have a forage cap on them. It is as alien as if you were to put a viking helmet on them!!

I have some boxes on the way also and look forward to painting them up. Only issue I can see via PSR preview pics is the quality of how the detail has come through & also seem to be a lot of flash and messy edges. Thats a couple steps back from what Strelets were producing. However I guess with all that is happening with the war, a bit of quality suffering is not surprising. Loss of equipment, skilled workers etc probably taken a toll understandably. Am just glad they are released along with more restocks.
