Gothic Line Miniatures Afrika Korp and US Army Infantry review

I was very kindly supplied with some sample miniatures from the Gothic Line range to review, and here I'll be taking a look at some of the DAK and US Infantry figures.

The figures are incredibly well cast, with a tiny presence of mold lines and no more significant flash than this. and are ready to paint very quickly. The metal used is quite hard and takes primer well, and the detail is impressive. I found the figures were very easy to paint and accepted washes and layers well.

Scale wise they fit well with other ranges,  here's a pic of DAK soldier with one of my Winter Germans, and they scale very nicely together, mixing these into an existing force would present no issues.

The Gothic Line range has an intersting mix of models, including some Dutch infantry, and soon a Romanian range is being added too. Although not reviewwed here, one figure that does stand out for me is the figure firing his MP40 from the shoulder in the Panzergrenadier pack, he's actually holding it by the grip rather than the magazine as commonly seen on figures.

Overall, I'm very impressed with these, and will be looking forwards to the range developing.
