They look excellent, and at that price point, they're perfect for augmenting anybody's army.

You know, you are missing out on an HUGE market of 25mm (1/72) figures market. These Americans and the previously released Germans in 15mm should be produced in 25mm (1/72) scale. Check out the statistics on plasticsoldierreview.com for how the 25mm figure market has grown substantially in the last several years (http://www.plasticsoldierreview.com/Sho ... aspx?id=27) with between 80 to 147 NEW sets being produced each year for the past decade.

Interest is high and the market is obviously being able to make it profitable for these companies to keep tooling and producing so many new sets.

Just sayin'.

wmers, you have a good point, however that would pitch WGF against some very experienced and established competition. Right now, plastic in 15mm is just starting out, and directly feeds into Flames of War, Battlegroup Kursk and other popular rulesets. Flames of War in particular is massive on the tournament scene.

I don't think 25mm is a big market in the US, and no I am not saying that we lead the world and decide what is to be produced. I agree with mrinku, 15mm is huge, and the amount of things available for that scale, even such 28mm rule sets such as Bolt Action and Chain of Command are very easily adapted to 15mm. In fact CoC is perfect for the 15mm scale without any changes at all.

Well, the same argument applies to 1/72/25mm as far as using 28mm rulesets. ALL WW2 rules fudge ground scale against figure scale, otherwise it'd be 6mm playing on basketball courts.

There is a case for 1/72 hard plastic, since fewer manufacturers are doing that than the old standard polythene, but that's not saying much. The vehicle market is saturated in that scale, while their main 15mm competitor (Plastic Soldier Company) is anly a few years old and are still filling their range. Battlefront have started, but are only roughly where WGF are in terms of infantry, though they have a few vehicles.

BF also have the handicap (which also applies to Warlord 28mm plastics) of having a large pre-existing range of metal already sculpted in the old more chunky style. WGF have realistic proportions straight out of the gate, so can potentially corner the market for players who prefer that (which would be a sizable chunk of the WW2 gamers, I'm guessing). And WGF also has no previous stock of resin and metal kits to shift or production lines to replace.
