Hello peeps
Who makes the nicest 1/300 scale WW1 infantry? I need some geezers on the march, slung rifles. Also cavalry, also marching?

Many thanks in advance

John

Irregular have a nice range, not sure if the poses fit what you want though

What country and what period of the war are you interested in?

Thanks for the help,
Heroics and Ros, but their site says, 'British infantry' and has 'no image avaliable' which is no use to me.
Baccus, I used to work a stand at the UK shows, and think Mr Baccus is a bit of a tit, and wont give him my money.
Irregular, I'll go look, cheers.
Country, and period, Sorry, should've said, German, and British, tin hats, picklehaubs, don't really cars at 1/300.
Thanks again, I tried to find some using google image, but came up blank, this is annoying me!

OK, Irregular, lovely range, but no marching figures, or cavalry with slung lances, etc, but great figures, and nice 'route of march' wagons, gunteams, etc, I may well use some of these. thank you David Manley.

Irregular has marching German figures in their field caps. I will have to check for the British. It isn't that obvious at 1/300 ;-) If by 'slung lances' you mean pointing straight up then there are some German cavalry with this option. I don't think the Uhlanen are from memory. The Indian cavalry have slung lances but I haven't seen the BEF early war. I went with cavalry without lances as they are a pain in storage/transport.

The Irregular Miniatures BEF only have cavalry armed with swords. GWG09 are the German Kuirassier cavalry with slung lances. GWG14 are marching figures with field caps.

For British cavalry with lances, try using Irregular Miniatures Russian Lancers GWR10.
