Great stuff, as always! Can’t wait to see WWI Americans (for ’20s pulp horror gaming mostly, but I think I could enjoy WWI historical gaming too), and I agree completely with the others about tanks.
This kit is really begging to be kitbashed into some sort of dystopian steampunk/dieselpunk sci-fi thing (there’s something thoroughly dystopian about the whole era, really, but the aesthetics for these figures – the gas masks, etc. – really fit in!)
I like the way Kevin thinks, regarding the ‘Land that Time Forgot’ scenario – come to think of it, Reaper’s got some great plastic dinosaurs, cavemen, and even a few megafauna, not to mention the usual assortment of fantasy monsters and Cthulhu beasties, which would fit right into a lost-world/Hollow Earth type of setting. The Frostgrave “Tribals” plastic minis kit would fit the setting as well.
Tanks? Maybe we need some U-boats and Zeppelins, too, to transport our hapless band of German adventurers into the savage and forbidden lost worlds of K’n-Yan, red-litten Yoth, and the eternally benighted pits of N’Kai beneath the Vaults of Zin…. The accursed serpent-men of Valusia, the spiders of Leng, and the abominable Sagoths are waiting!
Anyway, as historical figures alone, these are fantastic, and the dioramas are very well-done, it’s strangely powerful how they really capture the emotion of each subject!
