Soldiers wanted....

I'm lookig for some soldiers, mainly german , in size 1:25 ,to use in my small dioramas.
I ordered some from Moduni, but they was not painted....so as long as I'm colourblind and not very good in painting....I was wandering if anybody knew about some painted soldiers in 1:25.

Sorry Josve,You can forgott about it . Maybe only Verlinen has one soldier- GI in 1-24 who`s painted ( for sure is on photo) but it`s all.
I`ve got big collection 1-25 (24) resin figures , painted by me.
I don`t like to paint figures but....what to do?
Next month,i promise to update my web site with some new figures.
Some unpainted of them You can see at my post Armor Diorama.

Thanks for yor answer!
So I just have to go for it then :) and try to paint them as good as I can....


What kind of paint do you use? Your soldiers look fantastic!
I'm not sure where to get the right paint and colours, any tips?

Hi again guys!
The painting of the figures goes really well , thanks to Piterpanzer!
But I'm now in search for more figures. I checked out the Miniforma site and was in contact with the guy who runs it, but he's too pricy for me.....
He asks 12,50 euro for one single unmounted figure.....and with the amount of different soldiers I was looking for I came over 600 euros, and thats pure madness!!

So now I'm looking for other places that sells figures.
I already have 2 sets of the 4 panzer soldiers from Moduni.
If anybody knows where to get miniatures ( 7cm/ 1:25) I would be glad to know!

Hi Josve !
I thing it`s good price for figure. If i give my figures to one man ,who makes for me resin copies i pay a little less,but if i would like to sale i have to put the same price.On E bay You can buy figures at similar price.
Loot at this figures from Modelcellar please . It costs more 50$ with shipping.

I know that around 10-12 euros each figure is a common price, so I can't buy as many figures as I wanted. it still seems a bit pricy for me anyway :)
So I just have to buy fewer......

O`k Joerg,i understand economic side but for me tanks exist with figures on diorama.

Here all is in action for me.
Without figures You can built battlefield the day after or garage for tanks.The most important You should enjoy Your hobby!!!

I was in contact with the guy who runs the Miniforma site, and he should send me his katalougue with more figures.So I'm going to order 5-6 soldiers from him when the katalougue arrives.
The problem all over is the 1:25 size, in 1:35/1:32 there are plenty of models to choose from at a much lower price.

My ideas for small dioramas would not be complete without soldiers around.
So for my future builds I might try the 1:32 or 1:35 size.
But first I have to finish the builds I have waiting.....and they are in 1:16 and 1:25.

I haven't bought anything from Miniforma yet, but I'm waiting for the catalougue. I think I will go for some US soldiers and some german soldiers from the D11-W winter tarnazug serie.
The US soldiers will go along with the Ford GPA Jeep I'm building
And the German soldiers in winterdress will go with my next build that is the Kubelwagen in a small winter diorama I have some ideas for :)

From Moduni I have bought 2 sets of the 1:25 soldiers.
