Finished up the 12-man sprue of Perry plastic DAK figures. Nothing special here - just blocked painted, followed by Minwax Tudor Satin stain and sprayed with matte. Used Warlord Games 25mm rounds to match the rest of the figures for Western Desert Campaign.
Nice figures, as expected from Perry. As I didn't have the entire set, not sure how many more arm/weapon options may be included but the single sprue I had seemed to have only a few spares. That is, I would've liked to have more firing poses - particularly with rifles.
I do like the simplicity of these figures - all of the equipment worn on the rear are molded in one-piece, making it easy to attach to the figure.
Picture above shows a Perry figure with a Wargames Atlantic figure to the left and a Warlord Games (metal) to the right. The Perry figures is slightly smaller than the other two, but looks okay on the gaming table with them.
Thanks for stopping by and checking out this small project. Best wishes to you all.
Lovely work finishing the DAK off, Dean. I did buy the full pack but only used one batch of ten or twelve, as they are part of my Pulp Collection. From memory, they do not come with a huge number of firing poses.....ReplyDelete
Thanks a lot, Keith. Having only one sprue I had to choose between the AT rifle and MG 34 for the single prone firing position. Wish the other prone figure didn't have a rifle already molded to it. Otherwise great figures. Kindest regards, DeanDelete
Amazing. Even better based up.ReplyDelete
Thank you for your very kind words, Richard. Warm regards, DeanDelete
Quick and easy but nicely done Dean 👍ReplyDelete
Thanks, Matt. That's the nice thing about Khaki and OD uniforms, as well as having them look grungy. Kindest regards, DeanDelete
Beautiful work again Dean!ReplyDelete
Thank you very much, Michal. Nothing like the masterpieces you paint, but happy with how they turned out. Warmest regards, DeanDelete
SUperb paint job Dean, they look gorgeous!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the kind words, Phil. Warmest regards, DeanDelete
Very cool, the troops certainly look the part. I agree the size comparisons do not have a significant impact over the three ranges.ReplyDelete
Thanks a lot, Joe. Yes, once on the table any slight size differences between figures are hardly noticeable, if at all. Once the dice starts rolling, no one really cares about such things. Kindest regards, DeanDelete
They finished up very nicely!ReplyDelete
They are looking great Dean!ReplyDelete
The constant clogging of the airbrush is one reason why I have stopped airbrushing with acrylics. I mainly airbrush with lacquer paints now although I am wary of the toxicity of such paints. Lovely work on the soldiers by the way :)ReplyDelete
