He's got some really good stuff, but his prices for each figure range between 40 and $60 so to put a crew on a panther like that would be quite an expensive proposition. You would probably have the most expensive tank on the battlefield. But if you follow the link to the artist's site you'll find many, many pages of very cool stuff.

Yep, the old saw applies - Cheap & good are often mutually exclusive terms

Ordering something isnít exactly a point and click situation. I guess Iím supposed to email him with my request and then receive instructions for ordering? Itís tough being old and trying to be internet savvy.

They look fantastic. I wish somebody would make same quality figures of Soviet, US or British tank raiders.

Thanks,

I'm looking forward to this one, and I hope you'll snap a photo or two along the way as you do the build. Maybe a shot after everything is in primer and then more shots as each piece gets assembled and painted? I think that would be very valuable information for a lot of people. Whenever the question comes up, what's the thing you like the least about the hobby, figure painting is a quite common answer. Hopefully you'll be able to show us a trick or two that will make it easier.
