I see there is a new box of British paras coming out, what do you think are the best sculptures out there today?

I think the Artizan are the best followed by the old Bolt Action sculpts by Paul Hicks. Warlord just announced a new plastic box which sculpting looks extremely mediocre in my opinion.

Artizan, by a mile!

I like the 1st Corps ones

Perrys made some excellent ones for Foundry. My favorite to this day.

Patrick R is quite right, the Foundry sculpts are beauties and size-wise fit nicely with Artizan. Sadly, as with all the Foundry WW2 ranges, incomplete, ie no heavy weapons.

Don't overlook Crusader miniatures Brit paras. I have a platoon of them and they're my favorite of the above selections.

Love the Warlord metals.
The casting is crisp and sharp, and they're refreshingly free of 28mm dwarfism.

If you like Artizan, I'd recommend having a look at Renegade as well – very similar style to Mark Owen's sculpts.
