Latest Additions: TGM WW1

It's been quite a while since I posted about any new additions to my own collection. By way of making up for the fact, this will be the first of a series of posts highlighting a number of new figures and vehicles acquired over the past few months

First up, four figures released by Thomas Gunn Miniatures as part of their new First World War series

These two Stormtroopers have been designed to accompany the very first figure released by TG as part of this series, namely the flamethrower figure. They have changed the way they have painted the helmet, making the colours much more subdued. Nevertheless, style and size wise they go quite well together and they also sit alongside my K&C stormtroopers pretty well

I particularly like the early sub-machine gun [Bergmann MP18] and the improvised club carried by these two troopers

Accompanying these intrepid assault troops into battle is the light machine gun team featured in the following photographs

As you can just about see from the photos the base of the machine gunner is somewhat 'bent' meaning that he doesn't lie perfectly flat on the ground. I don't know whether this is a common fault or not but it doesn't detract from the piece all that much and as part of a large diorama it really isn't all that noticeable

The figures are well posed, nicely detailed and pretty well painted. All in all, well worth the money it cost to buy them. I can't wait to see the German tank that TGM have in the pipeline

Happy hunting!
