Folks,

I know of 3 manufacturers of figs that could be used:

1 – Copplestone for Warlord era troops in Peaked Cap and Fur Hats
2 – Brigade Games for German trained troops in the German Helmet
3 – Reiver Castings for a variety of helmet and cap styles

So, two questions:

A – Am I missing anyone? (I know about Pulp Figures to supplement Copplestone.. )

B – Do Reiver Casting figures fit with either the Copplestone or Brigade Games figs? Copplestone is missing LMGs and Brigade games is missing Support weapons (HMG, etc. ). I could go all Reiver Castings but the online pics of the sculpts are sort of.. meh.

Any ideas?

Thanks!
Ed

that's about it. I freely mix copplestone & Brigade figs. No idea about reiver

Warlord games is good for obscure tanks & I use their EW Germans with slight modifications for heavy weapons like 37mm AT guns and 82mm mortars. (Cut off the gas masks and use a knife to to turn their boots into puttees)

Repurposing Copplestone and Brigade are your best options for Nationalist troops. Communist forces, nothing comes to mind.

Thanks!

Have gotten interested in the Sino-Japanese fighting as of late, but the figure choices are a bit frustrating right now! Was really hoping someone could comment on the Reiver Casting figs that had seen them in person, or that I'd missed someone's offerings…

Thanks!

Pulp Figures had some figures for the warlord era. Although currently under re-design, the old line is available from Crucible Crush:

@bogdanwaz – yep, knew about those and am looking forward to the Pulp Figures resculpt of the range (whenever Bob gets to it…)

I'd love to see Pulp or Copplestone release an LMG pack to make them a little more usable for WW2 proper!

Thanks!
