Personally I quite enjoyed putting together and painting Warlord's US Airborne. I like animated miniatures with dynamic poses.

Warlord if you like multi-pose options, conversion possibilities and flexibility with its plastic kit.

Offensive miniatures if you like "non-heroic scale" 28mm.

Artizan if you like metal "heroic scale" minis. The only drawback is that many of the helmets are rather plain and uncluttered.

I really like Artizan figs.

I ended up getting a platoon from Offensive miniatures.

The Perry Brothers have a great line of paratroopers. Offensive are alright but their proportions are wacky. The torsos are way too long for their smaller legs.

Not to mention the weapons are really poorly modelled.

BTW: Perry only do German paratroopers!

I went with Artizan some Crusade added in for my paras, I like how the bigger figures look and most of my W.W. II stuff is the same.

But wow, do those figures at Offensive Miniatures look good.

I haven't seen the Victory Force US Para figures, but I've seen their other stuff, I have a bunch of the Star Trek type figures, so I am sure they are very good.

Didn't know Perry had paras, I'll go look right now.
