The Great War in 10mm


Hi

I have been interested in the Great War for many years as certainly goes back to the early  1970s when I had Airfix armies.  In 1978  I collected and painted Peter Laing 15mm armies for the period.

I do now have quiet a few 28mm figures for both the early war years as well as for later trench games. 

But recently I have been basing up some 10mm figures as well as adding a few 12mm kalistra Germans. Which is kind of full circle as they are at least as big, if not bigger, than the Peter Laing ones I had all those years ago.

Anyway here are a few photos of some of my Russians and Germans.



A Kallistra German MG next to a Pendraken one.




The Kallistra Germans are bigger than Pendrakens Russians side by side. On the table the size difference is less noticeable.

These are great! Lots of times in more recent years, I've wished the old Peter Laings were still available as he offered an extensive range of late 19th century and WWI-era figures. Your own look so nice that I might just have to have a go at the Eastern Front ca. 1914 before long myself

Best Regards,

I bet you were inspired to use those Peter Laing figures by Stuart Asquiths WW1 article in "Battle" magazine back in 1976 I think.

Hi Paul

You are spot on.

Lovely little figures, I'm a fan of 10mm too. Great looking bases

How do the Kallistra compare with Peter Laings, please? I, too, have a Peter Laing WW1 collection that I've long wanted to expand.

Excellent job, love the painting work and the bases...
