Unboxing Wargames Atlantic's WW1 Germans

Turning Germans into Chinese

I recently started to build a WW2 Chinese army to Bolt Action and in the beginning of the war several Chinese units were equipped with German gear and using puttees on their legs. So these minis would be a good starting point for kitbashing and conversions. Let's see what the box contains and what is the quality of these minis...  

On Wargames Atlantic


A rather new player on the plastic miniatures market, but already produces six different ranges from Ancient to WW1 to sci-fi. I have several of their products and in general my experience is very positive. I really like, that they look for miniatures that are not yet available as plastics and go for it!

Contents of the WW1 German box


Box contains 5 identical sprues, that have a very decent amount
of options to build the models as early war or later (helmets). There's also plenty of weapon options.
 


Each sprue makes 6 models


First model built. Parts fir together very nicely and the pose 
looks good, dynamic and natural

Details in the miniatures are ok, but specially those details sculpted into the 
actual miniature body are not very sharp IMHO.

Conversions

Built Chinese elite troops with big swords.

Summary

  • First plastic WW1 Germans on the market, very good!
  • Miniatures are easy to put together and look good and natural
  • Level of detail and it's "crispiness" in the body of the miniature leaves room for improvement
  • All in all, I warmly recommend them
