Quality and Manufacturers

Spent the day flashing and basing 50 figures, quite a bit more were done when you count the ones not flashed. Funny how the quality of figures changes from company to company. One group of 17 are German infantry that are to be painted as German military police and at least 1 in every single blister pack (4 packs in all) had a chunk of the rubber mold wedged in a crevice on the figure as well as super heavy flash- just poor poor quality in the production end. The sculpts and poses of the figures are very nice but the quality of the product left some to be desired.

Then there were 30 “Black Brunswhickers,” a Napoleanic regiment. I had seen these figures at Historicon but had not bought from the company as I currently had no real interest in the periods that their lines are in. Nice clean figures with little flash- just a joy to clean. The poses were  were fairly uniform for the rankers (you expect them to be in packed regiments for this period so standard poses are to be expected) however the command figures were  very nice. I particularly liked the drummers and look forward to painting them when I get to that part of the contract.
