Whose make are the Imperial German figures? I recently painted up a group of Armies in Plastic's Imperial Germans at the request of my Grandson (we do war games). The Germans are the Blue Army and the Brits are the Red Army.

Sergei1877 - they are 28mm conversions. They represent the 5th company of the 3rd battalion of German Marines in China 1914.
I recently bought Hessian infantry at a scale of 28 mm for the period of the US War of Independence. I want to try to do it. I’ll post a photo, if interested
