Well my copy turned up yesterday, and ive been furiously painting today to get the germans done. Got to say im impressed with the sculpts, and also the finish on the figures out of the box. Despite being described as undercoated, i was extremly dubious, and thought id have to spray all of them before painting - however im pleased to report that the basecoat is really good - taking an ink wash very well with no further preperation. My first german mech was given a black citadel ink wash, then drybrushed - its given it a lot more depth. Ill post some pics soon.
A little disspointed by the lack of ammo pouches/ grenades ect on the figures ect... will have to find some other 28mm figures that do these as seperates - since they would add an extra level of detail on these otherwise goergous figures.
Overall though, wow - easily the best AEww2 infantry figures available i just hope that the game sells well enough so that the follow up sets see the light of day - i just think that FFG needs to do some more scenarios, free stuff online to keep the game alive between releases, and keep gamers interested... its the first few months that make or break this kind of game !
