Nice to see some models with the old M14. The first Rifle I was issued waaaay back in my long passed distant youth … old fart

Anyone see these compared to other ranges?

They look a little stubby for 28mm figures in the picture.

I don't currently have a comparison picture, but the squares in the pic (including grey surround) are 30mm. They're just chunky 28s.

The M-14s seem stubby too. An M-14 is comparable in length to an M-1 rifle. Those look the size of M-1 carbines.

I noticed that as well, but I thought it was just the angle of the pics and my eye is still recovering from surgery … frown My perception may have been wrong … I can't even paint my minis until the other eye gets "fixed" …

An average human is around 7.5 'heads' tall.

Unless it's due to some camera angle distortion, these look to be around 5 heads tall, which is the ratio of a typical 3-4 year old.

I was hoping it was just bad picture as well.

BTW Captain Gamma – I get a timeout on the link.

The photo makes them look stubby. Here's a photo from Wargames Illustrated positive mention of the figures@

They also look better on the website.
