Great War German Infantry

I've had Too Fat Lardie's Through the Mud and the Blood for a while now and haven't done much more than a few test games using my WW2 minis. I've really been too busy with all my WW2 stuff to really consider starting another army in another period.

I've been toying with the idea of using Pendraken 10mm but I'm just not sold on the idea... yet. At that scale I'd have to go 4-5 per base and I'd really like to keep it 1:1 if possible. S0 when I saw these in the local games shop I just had to grab a box. $8 for a box of 48 miniatures isn't too shabby and the mix of poses is pretty good and the inclusion of specialist such as flame throwers and a MMG means that you can get a good platoon out of a box. The only complain I have with these is that the plastic is just a little too soft, but then again I was expecting that.

I'll give these a coat of paint and see how they come up before I make any decisions about buying more or not. I also notice that Rich at Too Fat Lardies has just ordered some of the Pendraken so I'll wait and see what magic he can do with those.
