Chiltern Miniatures

United Kingdom

German, as delivered
As Delivered

Barrett Scale: 30H.
Mixes best with: The figures don't match any other range I'm aware of, mainly because of the overly-large weapons.
Long Review: The two figures sent were both pre-undercoated, and showed no visible mould lines. They are cleanly sculpted, with no real problems I can see, although the one figure's MP40 barrel had broken off in the mail. The faces are very neat, and show loads of character. The clothing is also nicely bulked out, and the creases fall very convincingly.
Commentary: This range is, although nicely presented, the hardest one to use with any others, as the weapons are caricatures. If the weapons could be removed easily, I'd have no hesitation in getting more of these figures, but the visual difference between the Chiltern weapons and any other ranges makes it impossible to use them together with any other range.
Historical Accuracy: Four Good.
Pose Quality: Four Average
Sculpting: Four Average.
Casting: Three Average.
Sources: Two figures sent as samples. The broken barrel on the MP40 was probably caused in transit.
Sculptors: Unknown at present.
