A look at True North Miniatures Hungarians
As promised, here is some pictures of TNMs Hungarian range.
Note that I don’t have access to my old photo setup so the image quality is a bit low.
First of is the AT Gun crew pack, 3 poses, 4 of each.
These models are used in the heavy weapons pack too, as crew for the mortar and HMG with tripod.
They poses are a bit static but I’ll probably use a few of them since the add some variation to the limited range of Battlefronts Finnish crewmen.
Panzerfaust and Panzershrek equipped infantry, 4 poses, 3 of each.
Until Battlefront releases their new PS/PF finns I’ll use these (and Legions East) for my finns. The fausts are a bit puny and they are all equipped with backpacks and puttees and some of the helmets are a bit iffy, but those problems shouldn’t be that hard to fix, though it would probably be easier to convert BF germans…
The command kit, 3, poses, 4 of each.
A bit more poses would have been nice for the command stands.
But now I have radio-operators enough for a lot of observers at least…
The heavy weapons pack consisted of the above three quite nice (except for the mold separation) guys carrying an MG, and a few other guys detailed below.
There where three different laying poses in the Heavy Weapons pack, one nice thing is that the MG loaders ammo belt is quite long and so thin that you can actually route it to the MG and cut it so that it matches up properly, nice touch.
On the other hand I can’t distinguish the AT gun from the MG…
Here is the weapons included in the pack, the mortar (x2 in the pack) is a bit interesting since it is 4 part! A bit overkill in 15mm scale. The MG with tripod is not that nice though.
The crewmen included for these are the same as the AT gun crew above.
Some riflemen, the are 8 different poses, 3 of each in the riflemen pack, this is the nicest pack IMHO, nicely detailed and varied and dynamic poses.
Some of them suffer a bit from unaligned mold lines but they aren’t that bad.
The usual problem compared to the Battlefront finns are that they are equipped with backpacks and puttees.
I’ll probably snip of he packs on some of them and green-stuffing boots for them but it’s probably to much work for all of them.
The last 4 riflemen poses, nice and dynamic.
