Freikorps Werdenfels

I noticed that Tsuba miniatures had released figures for Frikorps before I left on vacation, but other than admiring the figures, thought little of it.  Today I was browsing around the web, as one does, and noticed that there was more information out on them... hmm, the unit was from Bavaria, and further, was raised from Garmisch-Partenkirchen (then just Garmisch and Partenkirchen), which is one of the places where I stayed on vacation!

Aside from the pictured figures, there are two packs of riflemen, a heavy machine gun, and one of "specialists" which includes a medium machine gun, a standard, and a figure with a hunting horn, so you could easily build up a little force with the produced figures.

Anyway, these are great looking figures, and aside from their strictly historical uses, they would be excellent for a variety of interwar or pulp actions.  German volunters for a VBCW?  "Alpine" units in a 1930's general war?  Who can resist Paul Hicks figures in lederhosen?  And for € 7.50 not too expensive either.  If they sell well, there are plans for civilians too...
