Not their best work by a long way. The poses look awkward, and the proportions are off. Might make a nice one-off squad in your army. Or you could buy a squad of DKoK.

Agree with the criticisms. However, if this is the first attempt of someone trying out something new - then said sculptor will do fine. The details of the models, guns and masks especially, are really good!

i agree that the poses are somewhat... odd.

but the entire coat, gun , mask thing going on are really cool.

Hope they make more of the faction, with a little more natural poses.

What is DKoK, btw?

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Am I the only one who finds this whole style a little strange?
Where GW or 3rd parties make obviously Nazi inspired models, and everyone sort of treats them with kid gloves.

It seems like there's since weird double standard where gamers treat it as "ok" if you play a Nazi inspired army but don't paint them as Nazis. But if somebody paints them add Nazis then they freak/get uncomfortable.

I'm not advocating for these armies. I think it's in poor taste to have Nazi inspired armies at all.

They're not Nazi inspired. Like the DkoK, they are based on WWI era Germans, not WWII.

so how about Roman inspired armies, and don't forget templar/crusader themed armies. there are plenty of army styles and themes around, of which the original uniform/style is linked to atrocities and shamefull parts of history.

I don't quite understand your reasoning. but to each their own tastes
