|Both version of Col. Steiner side by side|
Even for me it's quite difficult to distinguish both figures but the bases are slightly different. Although I chose the same material I set the foliage slightly different to prove that's really two versions of the same miniatures. Anyway the figure itself is a very nice piece. Very good sculpting and a really crisp casting. Actually what I would expect from company that is on her way to claim a market-dominating role in our hobby.
As usual I employed Vallejo Model Colors as well as the Wargames Foundry skin sestet. Somehow I think the trousers and the cap should have been more bluish. Anyway I'm satisfied with my figure so I hope Curt is satisfied with his as well.
For those few who don't know the movie, here is the trailer:
Steiner is a wonderful figure and a great example of a 'Risk Taker' - thank you so much Stefan. At first glance I hadn't realized there were two renditions of the same figure, as your work was so good in duplicating them - wow. His face and flesh tones are superb and I like that you've given him black leather gloves which I remember clearly from the negotiation scene in the movie. Very, very nice.
I hope you have a great play of the scenario and that Steiner makes it through to his target, poor fellow. Hey, perhaps you can use both figures as a ruse de guerre against the Allies! Feel free to delay shipment if you wish. ;)
