A new plastic soldier manufacturing company called “The Plastic Soldier Company”

February 18, 2010

While browsing all my colleagues’ blogs on my Blogroll, Geordie’s Big Battles had a media release and URL that I’ve been looking for over the last couple of weeks. You see, Plastic Soldier Review had a newsflash on 9 Feb 2010 about a new toy soldier manufacturer and I’d been searching the web daily since then trying to find out more about them.

They’re simply called “The Plastic Soldier Company” and their first few releases will be of interest to anyone wargaming or modelling the WWII Eastern Front (OstFront) in 1/72 scale.

Here’s their website!

Their first two releases are WWII Russians in Summer uniform and WWII Late war German infantry 1943-1945. While there are plenty of the latter already, there aren’t so many of the former. It’ll be interesting to see what they are like.

    Looking like they have possibilities – the designer was on Benno’s forum last week and said they were ‘balanced’ sets with (at long last!) the right proportion of riflemen without the ‘exotic’ flame throwers, smg’s bazooks etc.
    They still need to get rid of the Napoleonic ‘standing, firing’ pose though which is useless and suicidal on the post 19th century battlefield

    Is there a radio operator?

    Nope. The designer says they will be done in a separate ‘support’ or ‘command’ set to follow. About time somebody followed this principle in plastic as the metal makers have always done it.
