Plastic Soldier Company 'Cross of Iron'

Here is the latest of my Plastic Soldier Company stuff that I have (slowly) churned out since Christmas. The plan is to use them with my Nuts! rules and upon reflection I suppose I should have based them separately, however, they wouldn't have looked as effective IMHO. 





The MG42 team with 1 in 1 tracer loaded, I try to make my troops look suitably grubby and 'battle-worn'.


The Soviet DP-28 troops, my only real criticism with the PSC figures are their similarity of poses across all ranges, which I suppose keeps costs down on moulds etc... 






...and now, following a couple of head swaps, we have Sgt Steiner and Cpl Kruger from the classic 'Cross of Iron' film. These figures aren't finished yet, but I thought it was high time I posted something constructive...


I wanted to give Steiner a smock and tried to mould one with some Green Stuff, but wasn't skilled enough, so he he had to keep his M43 tunic, as worn at the start of the film...




Private Maag calls for reinforcements... the bases are yet to be (very sparsely) flocked as I intend these troops to be used in an urban, multi-level setting - due primarily to my lack of board space - and the fact that 'Cross of Iron' is mainly mud, mud, mud...





'Demarcation! Steiner coming in! Demarcation! Steiner!' Love that film...

That's it for now - more to follow...eventually,

Monty

  7. Many thanks chaps, very nice of you, my problem is, it takes an age for me to actually get round to producing anything in sufficient numbers; too many distractions :)

  9. Outstanding work, Monty. Can't wait to see them in action. I especially like the detail on the ammunition - all those tracer rounds! These figs are all PSC? Think I'm going to go buy some now...

  10. Many thanks for your comments, lads - yes, Steven they are PSC; my good lady was good enough to get me the Russian heavy weapons set for Christmas which I shall be starting on soon and am eagerly awaiting the German equivalent which will hopefully be released in the not too distant future...
