Hi guys my name is John and im with a tiny site working on 15mm and 28mm miniatures for Weird Great War and adventure gaming. We previously put out a set of 15mm scale Neo German heavy infantry back in june and now we have finally finished our first batch of Heer infantry in 15mm for the same line. You can get a small look at a group of the bare metal troopers on the front page of our website Trench2114.com We are still working on painted versions. Each packet of ten comes with a officer and heavy weapons bearer for a low price with free shipping anywhere listed on our products page. I have been told they look like a cross between Bauhas and Death corps in 15mm which isnt a bad comparison in my book! If your interested check them out. Thanks again for looking guys!

I like the guild miners!
Very cool.

I have a question around the other figures though, it states:

This is a Blister containing 10-12 Panzer trooper heavy Infantry 15mm metal miniatures. Available now

10-12 figures?
Is it random then how many you get, or am I missing something as it seems a bit odd.

:)

Michael.

Yeah that should actually read 10 troopers. Sorry for the confusion. Thanks for the compliment on the Guild trooper as well! They are kinda unique sci fi!

Hey John, will you reissue those armoured vehicles you did show on here some months ago?

John Da law03 Jan 2013 5:10 a.m. PST

Hi Moqawama!

Yes it is scheduled to return soon! Our sculptor is finishing up a armored walker kit for us right now to see the light of day in february followed by the heavy tanks return :)

Really glad to see that these figures are still available. Have to order some!

Moqawama Inactive Member03 Jan 2013 6:01 a.m. PST

Glad to hear that John!

I missed them on their first outing due to an unlucky lack of funds, now I plan to make up for that buying at lease a platoon!


:D

Those are very cool! Is that a shovel in the hand of the heer officer? Your shipping rates seem too good to be true. Your main page says the rules are for 28mm but you're producing 15mm. Are you quitting 15 for 28 or simply producing both? Just placed an order too. Thanks.

Love this flag:

"Is that a shovel in the hand of the Heer officer?"

picture

During World War 1 shovels and other digging/entrenching implements often had their edges honed to a blade to be used as hatchets during close combat trench-raiding encounters.
picture

It testifies to the brutality of that conflict that some units were even issued maces and morningstars for melee combat; weapons which were last seen on the field of battles centuries ago, during the Middle Ages.

The picture of helmeted, gasmask-wearing infantrymen duking it out with axes and maces among clouds of phosgene and the burning wafts of flamethrowers "shortcircuited" in the collective consciousness as the embodiement of the sheer ferocity of the 'Great War'

John, are you going to try to release any of the other factions that you had planned for your Trench 2114 line?

John d law Inactive Member03 Jan 2013 10:40 a.m. PST

Hi guys!

Wargamer1972, yep that's a trench shovel in his hand :) there are rules for both 15mm and 28mm in the rules section. The mass combat rules at the lower end of the page are for 15's. For now we plan to stick with 15mm in the Trenchverse. There's too much stuff we want to make for other nations like the Royal Kingdom (Brits), Conglomerate (Russia), The Hegemony (Ottomans) and Free States (USA). To worry about 28's at this time :)

Morrigan,
Yes actually we are currently having a heavily armored walker sculpted for the Royal Kingdom faction, kinda the evolution of the old Mark tanks so the Neo Germans can get terrified again just like the originals did in 1916! Should be ready in February. That should be the next release.

Despite being much more in the "Near Future"-side of SF wargaming I have to state that your Iron Will troopers would be a great addition for those people seeking options for Gothicpunk/WH40K/DUNE 15mm wargaming.

So far the only troops with such a feel available were the Retained Knights and Muster Troops from Alternative Armies / 15mm co.uk and those power armour infantry from RAFM

Now we can add the Iron Will grenadiers…and hopefully other coming factions in your range would prove useful as well!

Great to hear the range is progressing, I'm happy with the quality of the minis I've bought from you so far.

Just wish you'd mould integral bases on the infantry.

Cheers,

Kev

Orion Republic and Mercantile Bond soldiers also could provide wonderful opponents for Iron Will troopers

Hey guys. I was lucky enough to receive some review samples from John.

Just put up a post on the Trench2114 Heer 15mm figures. As John said, these are cool alternate WWI figures with advanced weapons. I took a bunch of comparison shots. Enjoy.

Thanks again Tom for the review! I am very glad you like them :) More to follow soon!

Hi guys! Just a little FYI. We have restocked our 15mm Heer infantry and our now available again for anyone who has been waiting to grab sum. Also we received our first combat walker the other day and will be sending it off for casting, so orders will be up soon. Thanks guys!
