"… these guys were part of the federal troops sent to Munich to fight against the Munich Soviet or Concil Republic in May 1919."

I only copy what the Company wrote my friend.
Do you visit the main page?
Do you like the figures?

I like them! They could be a faction in a Crimson Skies/ImagiNation….Toureristas, armed tourists. Just add some women , baggage and cameras.

Since Munich is the capital of Bavaria, I don't see the issue?

Very cool looking figures for a period that gets very little attention.

Fantastic! I've been tempted by this period for years. Great find. Thanks Armand!

Holy smokes!

Just sent off an email for a purchase. :-)

These are fantastic! Thank you for posting this. I've been hoping someone would make these figures for a long time!

I just emailed in my order. Hopefully, they continue to make figures for this range.

They need a pack of miniature steins and a few figures holding them to place around nearby field kitchens.

I agree with bj – definitely need steins and a few figures with steins for authenticity :)

That MG looks a bit pint-sized…

Great looking figures, are they in scale with Old Glory Great War figures which I am using for FreiKorps. Assorted communists too. Has anyone ordered from these guys before -- good service?

I will get me some. I do have to agree with ataulfo that these are not "Federal" troops but local Bavarian freikorps, no matter what the website says. Quote from Wikipedia, for what it is worth

The first challenge to the Weimar Republic came when a group of communists and anarchists took over the Bavarian government in Munich and declared the creation of the Bavarian Soviet Republic. The uprising was brutally attacked by Freikorps, which consisted mainly of ex-soldiers dismissed from the army and who were well-paid to put down forces of the Far Left. The Freikorps was an army outside the control of the government, but they were in close contact with their allies in the Reichswehr."

"Regular" freikorps look more like this

spontoon, the Schwarzlose may seem "a bit pint sized", but it is modeled rather accurately. Check out this modern footage of a privately owned example being fired on YouTube.
