28mm WW2 British/Canadian Para Comparison

I finished up a few more WW2 British/Canadian Paras over the weekend and got to thinking maybe I should do a comparison of some of the figures from different manufacturers in the collection…

Represented here are:

(I have differentiated between “older” and “newer” West Wind Productions figures as there is a significant difference in the older Berlin or Bust figures and the newer Separate Head System figures… though, I’m not sure these “newer” paras I have from them were S.H.S. figures pre se. I think they may have been added to the Berlin or Bust line around the time the newer S.H.S. stuff came out…)

(Remember: click on the pictures for a bigger version):

Stuff from all of the ranges, Standing (From left to right): Artizan, West Wind (newer), West Wind (older), Black Tree Design, Bolt Action, Crusader, Foundry

Sten Guns (From left to right): Crusader, Foundry, West Wind (older), Artizan

  1. Thanks for this - great painting and nice to see how compatible the different ranges are. Been thinking about an Arnhem campaign myself...
