I have tried Kossak Miniatures 3D-prints

 In the past my goal as a collector of figures was, to get all figures ever produced in 1/72 scale. The big challenge so far was to lay my hands on old German figures from the period of 1900-1930.

Now with the 3D-technology it even became worse:-) At first I was not happy with 3D products, they broke too easy. I have made first test-buyings from Ebay or Etsy. Also my friend Michael printed some for me. 

In the meantime there is better resin available and the figures usually survive my clumsy hands:-)

Following several figure groups on facebook, I saw all the new figures from Kossak miniatures. I thought interesting subjects, but printing myself was a desaster. So I was surprised to see the seller forge city on Etsy. He is offering printed figures in cooperation with Kossak. 

I thought, I give it a try and ordered around 150 figures. They arrived with just six broken muskets which are easy to glue and of which I got the promise of replacements with my next order which will for sure be come soon. 

See here some photos of what I am working on these days. The first order I have focused on Russian troops in Potemkin uniform. I like this one, already have several sets from Leonids range at Hagen Miniatures as well as more poses that Leonid sold directly.

Here we have the first set of Russian Artillery in Potemkin uniform.

Still many Infantry and Jägers to paint

The next order will got for the 1799 Russian army:-)
