There have been several recent 28mm releases catering for the ‘smaller’ nations/forces of World War Two and here’s another one, this time from Crusader Miniatures – Romanians.
We’ve been handed a sample pack of what will be on offer in this initial release of 16 figures, probably forming four packs.
All the models are wearing the distinctive Dutch M1928 helmet and summer field uniform. These neatly sculpted and well-cast figures are posed either standing still or ‘moving off’. They are mainly armed with what look like Mannlicher bolt action rifles, although one has a German MP40 and another an MP41. The four more heavily armed members of the squad are carrying Czech ZB vz. 26 medium machine guns.
These figures are most suitable for 1939 – 44 when the Romanians were fighting as part of the Axis powers, before they shifted their allegiance to the Soviets in 1944.
The figures would fit neatly with the 28mm Romanians by Empress Miniatures and/or Great Escape Games.
