Very nice figures. I had no interest in WW1 until I spotted the Tommys War figures and now suddenly have found myself looking for more. Have bought some beautiful figures from the Fusilier but they are also 1/32 or 54mm. As stand alones, the scale doesn´t matter too much, but I can see these in my collection soon! Cheers Alan & Darren.

Really nice figures. They'll look right at home in your Somme dio Al "Set up there Smith" -"But its all wet there Corp"- "So is all of bloody France. Shut up and get set up"

Hi Karl and Frank,

Thanks for looking in. My only grumble is the casting of the upper arms. There was quite a lot of overspill so cleaning them up was a pain and I ended up replacing one of the hands that got damaged in the process.

Gerard is working on a really neat WW1 Tommy at the moment (1/35 Scale) so keep an eye out there.

Now I have them built up, they pair up well in conversation.

I'll post a pic later.

Frank,

I've always had an interest in WW1. The Tommy's War figures look great for stand along works, but having started in 1/35 scale I prefer to stay there as it makes interchanging things much easier.

Cheers

Al

Hi folks,

These are the built figures. I think the interaction works well although I had though about giving them peaked caps?



Kark, the Somme Dio hasn't seen the light of day since before Christmas. Work and life interfering with my modelling time at the moment.

I did this Indian Officer though:



and these 2 might fit well here:



Cheers

I dont intend to make dios in 54mm/1-32 scale .... except small vignette type scenes maybe. Got the TW motorcycle and also the new trench section ... add a figure or two ... and viola, enough. Because all I got so far is in this scale, Im happey confining WW1 to 54mm.
