How do Schildkrot 40mm figures measure up?

Chatting to 42mm collector CT on my blog comments page, CT is exploring whether to use Schildkrot 40mm figures and how semi-flat they are.

By chance I have only one attractive Schildkrot figure and mould in my collection.

They are attractive figures, what I call semi-round or semi-flat and slender in stature compared to my 40mm semiround Prince August Holger Eriksonn mould Cowboys and Indians.

 

 

Compared to other 40 to 42  mm figures in my collection, they appear slender but the Schildkrot figures are an attractive but historically limited figure range. Fine for Little  Wars or Imagi-Nations type troops.

In my next blog post I will show my cheap plastic pound store 42mm figures compared to my few 42mm Irregular Miniatures metal figures.
