Hi all:

I purchased a nice older set of WW2 German Greatcoat infantry in 15mm Old Glory Command Decision from old stock found on eBay.

They were a tad too small for my use. Does anyone know of a manufacturer that makes WW2 German infantry in greatcoats and/or winter gear that is SLIGHTY LARGER than Old Glory 15mms.

Does anyone have any good size comparison photos to link to ?

thanks, Dan

I would say that the Peter Pig Germans in greatcoats are bigger and they are awesome. I have them and they scale out nicely to, say, the old Battlefront metals. If you check out their website, you can see the figures.

I think what you really want are the old Peter Pig Germans in greatcoats, from the early 2000s. They scale nicely enough that I've used them together on the same stand (and I avoid mixing manufacturers, usually).

Unfortunately, they are way out of print and the molds have been destroyed. And they only ever made 3 packs of them (rifles, LMGs and command). Very rare on EBay, and you'll have a to beat me to them.

Nope. They have a whole range and I own a bunch of them. They are on this page just under the SS infantry:

I never denied the existence of the new line, only that the old line (pictured in the link I provided) were a better fit with Old Glory figures.

Hi Dan
AB is my first choice and also go check out CP and go to the TDQ line where there are a few; better than none.

thanks Gus51RM AB, CP and TDQ are all great but they are just too big to fit in with my SHQ, Airfix and Matchbox figs…
