As well as the they're Pith Helmets, the guys at MaxMini were good enough to send me a sample of their brand new Greatcoat legs - and as with the heads they are excellent!
There are three variant sculpts, one running and one kneeling as shown below, and one standing still, cast in resin. There was almost no flash to be removed on any of the legs, with what little there was limited to easy to remove mould lines away from detail (a failing of so many bits GW and otherwise).
The sculpts are incredibly crisp, and there is a real feeling of motion in the way the cloth falls and the legs are posed. They are not overloaded with detail, around the top which is nice as it keeps them uncluttered and allows us as modellerd to better fit them in with whatever it is we're trying to achieve. However, what is there is stonking, right down to the hobnail boots.
The legs match up perfectly with GW heroic scaled Guardsmen (read Cadians), finally giving us a descent and cost effective Greatcoat option that is'nt DKoK expensive (though we're still awaiting cost) or cheap - for a reason - Wargames Factory plastics. You could build DKoK type Guardsmen with them of course - or you could do as I'm doing...
They make for an excellent Greatcoated Dress uniformed trooper look, I'm yet to decide on how to paint these chaps who I'll be using in my Mordian Charity Army Build as Carapace Armoured Veterans - update with painted pictures once I've made my mind up!
My only possible critism of these excellent parts, is that the feet are perhaps a little more for heroic scaled models, though its not particularly noticeable - and if you were so inclined this would be something which could easily be altered.
Keep an eye on MaxMini's website for release details in the near future!
