At last, a day off! Seemed like a good morning to paint up another sample 40mm 3d printed resin figure from Chris Parker's Day of Battle web store.
The figure came with seperate arms and a choice of 2 heads. Again its a close match in size and bulk with Sash & Sabre 40's and thus compatible with a number of 40mm companies' figures.
The arms had a sort of ball joint so it was possible to insert them into the socket in the shoulder and rotate them into various positions. A rather innovative design I thought.
The figure comes without a base, as usual, so I glued him onto my standard single figure washer base.
Given the quality, I'd recommend them based on that, but when you consider the price as well I would definitely buy more, (and some canoes!) if I were to return to Last of the Mohicans inspired wargaming.
Note: It seems I relied on memories of how expensive 40mm miniatures seemed 15 years ago when I was buying tem, I failed to check current prices and the difference bewteen metal and 3d printed seems to be minimal.
***** 5 Stars on this range.
Coming soon(ish): some sample medieval Scots being quietly mugged and forced to serve in the 16thC (because I'm not replacing my antique 25mm Scots), and a big, burley, wild looking, guy with a huge axe. (!?)
Coming before that: A wargame! What sort? Well, we'll see!
Looks like he means business! Very effective figure.ReplyDelete
You wouldn't really want to see him bursting out of the woods and coming for you.Delete
Diorama quality figure.ReplyDelete
Excellent looking figure.ReplyDelete
He looks the business Ross.ReplyDelete
All the best. Aly
Hard to mistake him for a freindly courier.Delete
A very nice looking figure, great job on him. I like the idea of the ball joint on the arms and I pity the poor knight that is about to be split in twain by the big axe wielding ruffian!ReplyDelete
He's very agile....Delete
uh oh! Forget the sword; Sir Knight better grab a slingshot.ReplyDelete
I think he's going for the duck and dodge gambit.Delete
it might be muted in color, but the completed figure makes quite an impression!ReplyDelete
