Marauder Gun Runners did a kickstart for WW2 1/18 scale figures back in July 2018 time. It achieved funding for German infantry early & late war. German infantry with green camo top. US infantry early & late war. British infantry, Russian infantry & Japanese infantry. exclusive figures: windbreaker native american. Classic Green toy soldier. Various solid one colour black/grey/red German infantry. US Japanese american infantryman. I went ALL IN so would receive one of each figure, plus choose 70+ of what ever I fancied.
They did not achieve all fund levels, gutted as missed out on: German Africa corp, desert SAS (dam dam dam!!), US Para & German Para (dam dam!!).
Various customisation on figures mostly shoulder patches/rank/medals etc added.
Received figures about Sept 2019, and I slowly sorted them all out, and decided “build” for each figure. NOTE: each figure comes with an array of equipment so you have plenty of customisation opportunities. Well head aches tbh deciding what to build.
Brits: decided to go royal marine commando’s plus a few western Europe SAS.
Russian: painted shoulder tabs & added rank myself. Also painted officers hat & added stars to infantry helmets.
First two pics good example of customising options, Painted an Italian camo inspired top for these officers.
1/18 scale stuff taken up so much time over last 6mnths, fun but need a change, back to 1/6 projects I’ve put to one side.
