Will you be providing an Iain (M) Banks style Knife mssile for this figure?

Have not update our Digital Sculpt section for awhile.  Here is the sample painted 3D prototype of our US HMG team...



Enjoy!

That would be interesting.  It must have been a real killer moving the .50 cal.

The .30 cal was bad enough! One guy would carry the tripod, one the gun and the rest the anmo or ammo cart.

Best to forget the mohawk hair cut. It was only done by a few pathfinder troopers.

Oh, I was going to paint him blue and give him a knife missile.

With the British, Soviet and American infantry sculpt done, this is the German one!





Enjoy!

After months of sculpting and amendments, we finally got our first batch of "Soldiers of WW2" completed!



Enjoy!

They look like statues.  What's the thinking behind this range?  I'll say again - the standard Rubicon plastic isn't well suited to figures.

Oh well. Rubicon look determined to go down this road. Attempts to nudge them to concentrate on the vehicles are unlikely to succeed. If they are a commercial success then Rubicon will be vindicated.

All will be revealed over time!

We have made a lot of progress with plastic figures.  The current releases are our first generation figures, more improved version coming mid-2018.

Don't think we can last too long if we are to focus just on 1/56 scale plastic vehicles.  As a company, we do need to diversify and to embrace a broader range of products.  This year being "Year of the Allies" for our 1/56 plastic vehicles, the other undisclosed (until now) company goal is to establish a foothold in other new ranges within 2017.

The need to diversify is understood.  I'm just not sure where this range fits in (I assume they're not aimed at the 1/35 market).  There are niche markets for figures like this in various scales; they used to be metal but now they're mostly resin.  But these don't seem to offer anything over existing models, except being plastic.
