The Infantry:
Freikorp 15s

First Glance: Based on what I have seen, the Freikorp range is a bit of a mixed bag, ranging from mediocre to good. The top two figures shown here are pretty nice, while the next two - Spanish and French - are merely average. One durability question - the ankles do look a bit thin to me. Mine will never see a gaming table, but your hopefully will, so make your own judgment!

Anatomy: I have to confess the top figure looks out of proportion to me, but I honestly can’t say why. Maybe I need more sleep. But comparing any two body parts yields good proportions. No ham hands or pumpkin heads, no dwarven legs or linebacker shoulders. Many of the feet are very undersized, but a little flocking can cover a multitude of sins!

The Finer Things: The detail on this figure is quite good. The straps and equipment are all well done, easy to pick out, even in the moderate contrast sculpting style. I’m not sure about the details on the pack, though. There seems to have been quite a variety of pack styles used in any case.

Second Chances: Based on the one figure, I’d be inclined to think fairly well of the range. But based on a few of the others, I might rethink. None of them are bad, but they lack the overall solid impression of the first figure.

I’m not very familiar with the Freikorp line, but based on these samples, I’d put them in my “try before you buy” category. Get samples or pictures before you spend your hard earned ducks.
