I would be interested to know if anyone has seen these "in the flesh" and can give an opinion as to their usefulness in wargames.
Thanks

What bothers me slightly about these is whether they are using Peter Dennis' artwork legally?

Major B, from what I read on the website, Peter Dennis is working with the company on this project.

For some odd reason, I really like these.

This is what Wargame Illustrated writes
"What we have here is something a bit radical. Peter Dennis has been working for a while on his ‘Paperboys' series of cut out and construct figures, from which you can form ranks of two dimensional wargames soldiers. Now with the help of Romanian company "World of Fun' (or simply Wofun) Peter has transformed his paperboys into plastic boys!"

I don't understand. Is there a reason to throw out speculation that they are being used illegally?

dbf167607 Jun 2020 3:56 p.m. PST

I think it's quite clear that Peter Dennis and Wofun are working together.

Looks like some of the figures,ACW/AWI, were done by a different illustrator.

I bought the Greek and Persians collection through the Kickstarter and bought more since. Needless to say, I like them. A friend of mine has bought quite a few 1815 French and they are very nice too.

Didn't back the KS, wanted to wait till they were in actual production before picking up their 18mm Naps and ACW. Glad to see they're fully up running, will start putting together an order.

Somewhere on the website which I can't find now there was a list of all the various armies they plan to create. Even the Balkan wars. Hope they do fantasy as as this would be great for hordes of the thing.

My grandson is interested in the American Civil War. He is seven and quite creative (aren't they all). He's watching Gettysburg and seems to understand what's going on. I got carried away and ordered him union and confederate army for him. He's got plastic odds and ends of my old air fixed stuff already but I wanna give him some good things to work with.

I got the Greek/ Persian 18mm Kickstarter. There were a lot of units and they look great. I have not played with them yet, but they would be a fine army to field. Only issue I had was cleaning the flashing on some units (they were mostly clean, but a few had extraneous pieces that were not fully cut away), and about three or four broke when taking them off the spruces (out of about a hundred) and a couple I broke wedging them into the very tight base slots.

All were easily remedied with super glue and you can't see the breaks (unless you are really looking and know what to look for).

Did they come with a rule book or are they suitable for any ?

cj177608 Jun 2020 9:31 a.m. PST

They can be used with any ruleset.

Here is an unboxing.

They look better with edges black

I am thinking I will use a black felt marker to run around the edges for the "more finished look."

They do not come with rules- just figures.

I am thinking that Don Featherstone's Horse and Musket rules in War-games would be perfect for the plastifigs ACW set.

Perhaps I can now fill a long standing dream of doing a "Charge" game once the plastifig Seven Years War figures come out.

There are rules by Andy Callhan included in some of the starter packs. PDFs available after you order.

They are advertising free PDF rules when you buy the big sets. I just bought the basic ECW set in 18mm. Waiting for its arrival in the next couple of weeks.

Raven Banner Games will be carrying the Peter Dennis lines. Taking pre-orders now.
