Does anyone have any Resistant Roosters/Historifigs Soviet naval infantry? If so would you recommend them? Failing that, if anyone has any of their WW2 line? I'm looking for good Soviet 15mm naval infantry and I'm in the US so not interested in UK makers. Thanks in advance.

Historifigs is in Wisconsin.

Right I know. Just wondering if anyone has these and likes them or has recommendations for better soviet naval infantry in 15mm. I wanted to avoid UK recommendations if possible.

I have a small number of Historifigs 15mm Russian infantry-- not naval infantry, though. These were (I think) branded as Bloodaxe minis; a little chunky, but I found that they looked OK next to Old Glory figs.

I think these are different figs but I am not totally sure.

I never cared for the RR miniatures. But that's just my opinion. I have the Peter Pig ones and quite like them. While this is a UK company they are distributed in the US by Brookhurst Hobbies and they keep a good stock on hand. Assuming it is availability and shipping costs from the UK that concerns you.

Is Historifigs really still trading? I and a couple of colleagues have all tried contacting / ordering from and had no response.

I've had prompt service for orders only a few months ago. Winter weather in Wisconsin may be an issue.

Brookhurst was updating their online inventory for PP recently. They only had a small % of their PP stock listed online. I recommend you get the Range/pack #s you want from the PP site and email Brookhurst to see what they have on hand. They filled 90+% of my last order and received it in < 7 days.

I order from Peter Pig directly. It is only way to make sure you get everything you order. Brookhurst was always out of stuff. I highly recommend Peter Pig for quality and service. I have been ordering from them pretty regularly and it usually takes about two weeks to get you stuff. Martin and Nigel are the best! I have Historfigs as well and they are nice figures. They do run a little big. Out of the two I definitely would take Peter Pig over Historfigs.

Khanscom, I have tried a couple of times, and so have some friends, over the last year or so without success. Can you give an email address for Scruby/Historifigs that you know works. It may just be that they don't want the hassle of sending to the UK.

I have resistant rooster Finns and Japanese inf. They are "okay" once painted. Certainly not my first choice but will do in a pinch. Peter pig is better and service is fast but postage to the US is a killer. I ordered $60 USD of stuff and postage was $40. USD If the infantry is all.you need I would go with resistant rooster. If you need alot of stuff go peter pig.

Cheers

Joe

I think I have some of their Soviets in greatcoats, because they made mortar crews and PP didn't. I swapped out their heads for PP ones so they fit in a bit better, but they're still noticeably taller and thinner than the PP.
