The Prussians are Coming!
Finally, after a month, I've finished my Prussian Seebattalion for China 1900 and/or Great War on Mars.
Miniatures by Old Glory, painted by yr. humble correspondent. Overall, I like the newer OG castings - apparently the older lines are less satisfactory amongst some painters, but this lot suits me fine.
My only quibble with these minis is the black shoulder belts - they are essentially non-existant on the casting. Maybe it's due to there not being many good photos of the backs of the belt gear, in which case the sculptor should have been told to make a guess or go with what evidence there is (perhaps go with what the rest of Europe was doing?).
Regarding the line itself - it desperately needs to be expanded. How about some Seebattalion maxim gunners?
Overall: 4.5 out of 5
Here they are, pictured with the Panzerkampdreifuss Storch.
Now I need some Martian Askaris for the Kaiser to call his own.
