Here are two more squads and two more leaders for my early WWI German 28mm Army.
The figures are mainly Renegade figures, which are really nice for anyone that has not picked any up before. They have great detail and are generally pretty clean so there is very little work to do to prep them. They are also reasonably priced, and are now back in production.
My only complaint is that they are extremely chunky when matched up against any other 28mm figure. I would realistically call these guys 32mm not 28mm. This isn't a real issue though if you keep the models in each squad all from Renegade. When I do have to mix models into a squad, I recess these models into the bases as much as possible (dremel down 2mm) and mount the other models up on 1 - 2 mm plasti-card on top of the base so that they end up being the same height and it becomes way less noticeable.
Again though, the figures are very good, I like them and would buy more in a heart beat. It is just important to understand that they do not mix well with other figures out there.
Here is a unit of 9 riflemen with 2 having grenades to help out when counter assaulting the enemy. Also included is a leader to oversee the squad.
Also painted up is a second HMG squad and leader.
The figures are based with liquitex medium and bits of wood and metal sheeting. This is then painted up in browns and blacks and then a heavy coat of pigment powders are layered over everything.
From Curt:Beautiful work Byron! I've always admired your paint style - so nice, clean and well executed. Lovely stuff.
I thought I was a bit OCD, but dremeling down and building up your bases?! Wow, that is 'focused' (though, what am I saying, I seem to remember doing something similar in the past as well...) ;)
I totally agree with you Byron, the Renegade WWI range is wonderful. True, they are a bit tall and beefy, but they have a wonderful esthetic about them and are a pleasure to paint. I really like that prone MG-08 team behind the sandbags (sorry Greg). How did you do the sandbags Byron? They look brilliant.
85 points which allows you just enough to slip past fellow-Conscript Greg. Well done!
