Our first wave of Romanians consists of two 10-man rifle squads and a 4-man command squad. They are compatible size wise with Artizan, Bad Squiddo, Crusader, Warlord. Sculpted by Alan Marsh.

Nice.

The photography of your minis is fantastic. They all look great, and the scenes are very believable. Well done!

These look great. Would these do for late war eastern front?

That's something different.

They fought well. No one could have held the German flank outside of Stalingrad any better with what they had under similar conditions.

Nice to see a new range. What LMG are they carrying? Any chance of seeing some bare metal pics?

It's a ZB30. And, LostPict, they are perfect for the Eastern Front. They are also perfect for fighting following the Romanian switch to the Allied side in August '44.

There are 4 waves of Romanians to come and this is the first. Next wave in July/August, followed by further waves in the winter.

Comparison for size:

Very nice. An interesting choice of kit to use with Romanians. Czech, German, French, captured Soviet and home produced. I am not sure what the plans are for the range, but it may be worth knowing that Gothic Line Miniatures do separate heads with mountain troops berets and the pointy Romanian fur hat.

We'll end up doing around 70 different figures!

Pizzagrenadier24 Jun 2017 7:21 a.m. PST

Good to hear Stuart! Love the zb 30. I like how I'll be able to run these against both Soviets and Germans.

Thanks for releasing these!

Both of the squads pictured seem to come with a Panzerfaust wielding fellow, which would suggest that they are intended for quite late war. When did the Romanians receive those weapons first?

Stuart at Great Escape Games Sponsoring Member of TMP24 Jun 2017 7:58 a.m. PST

1943 for the faust.

Here's a sneak peak of a figure from the next wave:

Nice!

GoodOldRebel26 Jun 2017 3:01 p.m. PST

Stunning! That's another Chain of Command platoon then! Any chance of some late war Hungarians?

Personal logo HidaSeku Supporting Member of TMP26 Jun 2017 3:33 p.m. PST

That sneak peak looks fantastic! Wow!

Stuart at Great Escape Games Sponsoring Member of TMP26 Jun 2017 5:47 p.m. PST

There may be a chance, Rebel, but after the 2nd, 3rd and 4th waves of Romanians!

Thanks for all your kind words, folks!

Well done for this product, a much neglected subject.

Bindon Blood23 Jul 2017 5:45 a.m. PST

lovely looking figures, any chance of a pack of 3 or 4 infantrymen with rifles for those who might want to set their Romanians in 1942 and don't need the faust?
