I had a chance to explore the newly released 28mm plastic Italian Infantry set from Wargames Atlantic. Very well executed and cleanly cast. For the full photo review follow this link link

A good review as usual, do you know how these would match the Perry Desert Rats?

Thank you for this. I have been trying to decide whether to grab a box set to compliment the Warlord Games miniatures I purchased a while back for Bolt Action.

Londonplod, they are just a tad "beefier" than Perrys, nothing like Warlord minis but just a tiny bit thicker. I would not hesitate to put them on the table with Perry Brothers stuff. I have the WA Prussian reservists serving in my 28mm Napoleonic army right beside Perry Brothers Prussian line infantry and there isn't an issue.

I appreciate the reviews. Does WA include assembly instructions? The Italians sport a lovely machine gun, the French have a choice of rifles depending on which war they're fighting. Is getting it right an exercise left for the student? Any chance you could post the instructions, if they exist?

I was comparing my older metal Warlord Italians to the new Wargames Atlantic (WGA) Italians and the WGA offering is quite a bit taller.

The Warlord soldier is standing tall and measures about 30mm bottom of his base to top of his helmet.

The WGA soldier is standing tall and measures about 35mm bottom of his base to top of his helmet.

thosmoss, no instructions to be found. In the case of the Italians there isn't a changeover in weapons (at least not visibly the difference in 6.5mm Carcano and 7.35mm just doesn't show at this scale). For the French the big issue would be to avoid the Chauchat in WW2 and the FM24/29 and submachineguns if you are portraying Great War soldiers

As always a good review Anton.

I would agree that they could work on the same table as Perry WW2 plastics but not kitbash too well together. The WGA Italians are more like the Warlord plastic Italians in size than any of the Perry WW2 plastics in my opinion.
