Crimean Turks from Uwe Wild (Fritz Figures)

Pictured above are several of the new Turkish Crimean figures available from Uwe Wild. Click on an image to see a larger version.

Many of the readers of this blog will be familiar with Uwe Wild and his various contributions to the hobby. For those who don’t recognize his name, check out his blog here:

One of Uwe’s recent projects has been to start manufacturing interesting subjects in 1/72 scale. His figures are metal, but for the most part are intended to fill the gaps in both plastic and metal lines. His first release includes a number of Turkish subjects for the Crimean war.

Pictured above are some of the infantry poses available, which include figures from the Anatolian elements of the Turkish army. Altogether there are 13 different infantry figures currently available, as well as some artillery. More figures for this topic are expected in 2011.

These are nice sculpts with good detail and useful poses. There has been some effort made to vary the heights of the different figures, but they average 22mm high at the eyes, and 24mm high to the top of the head. (Photo comparisons with plastic ranges will be posted later.)

Uwe is still working out the details of his range, including a brand name. For pricing and availability, it is best to contact him using the email address available on his blog.
