Hi

This is for Hugh, now i've been quit open minded about the quality of mantic stuff but Hughs is intrested in using the corporation figures as proxys so without further ado

http://www.belloflostsouls.net/2012....22.html

Thats migin possibly the worst moulding since the cheap green plastic soldiers stuff from the pound shop.

There are better out there ........dont do it step away from the edge. biggrin

They look like there moulded from candle wax

Cheers Gerry. happy

The mantic corporation guys do look much better anatomically speaking.

And less detail is a bonus if you can only paint to my standard. tongue

so still hovering on the brink.

(Of course Airfix are going to release 1 /48 British for Afganistan...they are way down my list....but still ?)

Hi

Very nice but I think they may be a bit fragile, I checked the HLBSC site and they discontinued there modern range but are working on some ultra moderns, worth watching e-bay for some they were nice if I remeber correctly.

Oh the land rover looks the business.

Hi

You might be able to substitute the weapons for some from another manufacturer to make them more robust but that would increase th overall cost, better to try and get a deal on pig iron.

Had another look at pig iron.

The heavy infantry are nice.....but if i was to go down that road i would be as well getting Urban War Virdians.

Same as Tom uses.

Hmmmmn. wacko

a lot of options.....but still no cash dry .....so plenty of time to plan. wink

Hi

Not sure about scale I think they may be 28mm, frothers slagged off the painting for several weeks when they came out.

Just checked wiki there 28mm.

It might say 28mm, but it also says they are not the same as most 28-30mm figures on the market.

And that they scale well with 1/72 scale. i have seen them up close in Static Games....they would be to small compared to AT-43 miniatures.

Cheers though. ok

Frothers slag off everything...so no surprises there. tongue

The one with the blade is almost reminiscent of the UNA shock troopers.

Hi

Thats the best stuff yet from mantic in the scifi stuff but does look like an infinity knock-off only just not as dynamic as infinity.

@ Pavlov : About a quarter of the price of Infinity. cool

@ Zealyot : Aye, but more like Iron Man rather than a Fallschirmjager.

@Zellak: got to agree with ou there, just wondering how long it'll take for someone to put a couple of disks in the hands for iron man's repulsors and to mount a couple of the heavy weapons on the commander model to use as warmachine tongue
