German Schutztruppe Command

German Schutztruppe Command

These are simply outstanding, finely detailed and well researched. Except that the rifle barrels are fragile and sometimes break off, I would not hesitate to give these a fifth star. They are very accurate as to the 1896 khaki Shutztruppe uniform. If I could put in a plug for mounted Shutztruppe please (and possibly others for variety in their corduroy waffenrock with swedish cuffs or kord litewka uniforms with field caps), I would be an eager purchaser of these as well. The site Colonial German Uniforms UK is probably well known to Askari miniatures, but it offers unparallelled documentation for the material culture of the Shutztruppe and the uniforms and equipment used in SW Africa. Congratulations on this extremely fine product line!...

Hereros

Hereros

These are outstanding figures, a superb addition to a very dynamic and exiting line. They are finely detailed and appropriately dressed and accoutered to represent the Herero people of 1904 as they battled the colonial German forces in SW Africa. The only reason I do not rate them with 5 stars is that the tips of the rifles, as with other figures in this line, sometimes arrive snapped off as they are very fragile. This can be fixed with glue but is the one aspect of these castings that I hope can be improved. I would like to put in a strong plus for mounted Herero (and Nama!) forces, as well as noncombatant Hereros, some of whom (especially women) could be wearing traditional dress. Kudos on an excellent product that fills a vital niche for this period!...

Tuaregs mounted on camels

Tuaregs mounted on camels

Just purchased 96 tuaregs on camels for an ancient army. The figures arrived in record time and were totally without flash. They look great, are compatible in size with my other ancient armies and are exactly what I wanted. Not only that they are waaay cheaper than comparable camel troops from any other company. Very well done - hope more Ancient players spot your product - the Tuareg army is viable from 600AD to 1200AD so can fight Mongols, Arabs, or any number of other horse based armies....
