Review by Wargames, Soldiers & Strategy Magazine
Wargames, Soldiers & Strategy is bi-monthly, historical wargaming magazine focused on having fun, regardless of experience, background, or interests. Each issue contains a mix of general articles and those focused around a particular theme.
Their review of the Imperial German Army Infantry packs (IAG01-03) is below;
In the latter half of the nineteenth century, books such as The battle of Dorking and Invasion 1910 captured the public’s imagination. In them, Britain had been invaded by a hostile power. Off the back of his recent kickstarter, Unfeasibly Miniatures are now releasing miniatures for this ‘invasion fiction’, ‘what if’ period. The first release is Germans on 1890-1908 uniforms. This is still the period of colourful uniforms, so these Germans will be in Prussian Blue, not the Grey Green ‘nettle’ colour of the Great War.
The models are sculptured accurately in firing and advancing poses. both the detail and the casting are very good with minimal flash. Size wise, the models are in the middle of 28mm, so they should fit in with most ranges. British figures for the same period are next. These will be a must for lovers of VSF and ‘what of’ Victorian gaming and will also have a use for more traditional players looking for Germans of this period.
