Alan, I'm not sure about 1/35, but if 54mm scale is good enough than I'd recomend Tommy's War figures... check out their releases in our news section: link.

Well there are the ICM ones which only half decent:)

Masterclub recently brought out a Lewis Gun Team I don't have it but if it's anything like their German WW1 figures it'll be excellent they look a bit static. Hopefully they'll expand the range


Model Cellar
are showing their British figures as unavailable at present.

there was a company called Japanese Armor King which did a lot of WW1 figures but it seems to have gone bust

Alan

I bought the ICM figures when they came out (they are 5 years old at least) and though they are still in the stash unmade they dont look too bad. They are not up to resin standards of course but they are half decent plastic figures. Maybe not to modern DML or Miniart standards but a very long way ahead of Tamiya or Italeri. New heads and maybe SMLE's and they would look quite nice.

HI Mario,

Thanks I' d seen the Tommy's War figs, and very neat they are too, don't have the poses I'm looking for.

Hi Pat,

The Model Ceallar figs look look like possibilities.

Hi Jason,

Again thanks, wrong type of pose.

Thanks a lot folks.

Al
