Some Flames of War Americans

A couple of pics of some painted figures I was able to purchase last summer now appearing on my blog:

Looks like a good purchase.

But please, tell me how you really feel about Battlefront. :lol

I find Battlefront minis to be very hit and miss. Their Polish Early War troops are some of the worst sculpts Ive seen in a long time but by comparison, the sculpts done on the more popular ranges (i.e the ranges that don't have new sculptors being trained on them) have got some really attractive detailing. Im happy to use Battlefront so long as the figures meet my expectations... and lets face it, we're all a bit spoilt these days with the quality we have on offer! LOL.

Still, when all is said and done, you got them at a very reasonable price eh? :good

Okay, since Garryowen asked...let me tell you what I think about Flames of War/Battlefront! :censored :bang :thumbs

In all seriousness, while they have brought a crap ton of folks into WWII gaming, their pricing can be hefty, and the whole concept of Germans fighting Germans in a tourney style atmosphere does nothing for me. But, these Vietnam figs are pretty nice, so I am happy.

It was a stupidly ridiculous price, about a dollar per figure including shipping. I am going to mount them on 15mm round bases (20mm for leader types and maybe 25mm for the couple of gun teams) and try a simpler version of LSB's basing. I love the look of the etched brass vegetation but will probably just do a sand and flock mixed base with a frond or two on them.
