New figures from Hinterland

Earlier this year I did a review of  Hinterland Miniatures.  These figures fit well with the colonial period  or VSF.   This link will take you to the March review:Hinterland Victorian figures.  Today I received an email from Jason Moses on his latest new releases.  The fighting ladies are based on Albert Rodia Victorian futuristic  illustrations.  Check out the photos.  Could be a great addition to your Victorian era army

Also let this slip by for the German forces.   The feared Panzerjagers.  Talk about a tough lot of soldiers.
