Ramcke Brigade, Libya 1942













FJ NCO











FJ MG42 Gunner









FJ MG42 Assistant











FJ carrying Ammo Drum cans












This is based on Ron Volsted's artwork of Dragon Ramcke Brigade 1/35th figures which tempted me to do a kitbash project of his artwork.

I have meaning to post my completed 1/6th Ramcke Brigade figures group for a couple of years! I completed my Ramcke Brigade project about 2/3 years ago and hadn't any time to post photos of my Ramcke FJs.

Hope you all like it!

Cheers

Niall

GREAT GROUP!...
I'm really glad you're posting your groups of Volstad-inspired troopers....
They really tie-in well together, give a great cross section of the specific type of trooper...
AND....you've REALLY captured the look and feel of his artwork in 3-D 1/6 scale!

Arbomambo,

Thanks mate.

I'm a great fan of your 1/6th figures. Very very good and I've downloaded almost all of your figures into my hard drive.

I plan to do some more Volstad kitbashing group in nearest future.

Also I'm currently working on Normandy FJs walking to battlefront (non-volstad but Tiger Calico inspired troopers).

So watch out for new post in nearest future.

Mega cheers!

This is GREAT!! I really love what you've done here. As Bruce has stated, each soldat stands on his own and together they really are fantastic to look at. Rich with detail too. I have an affinity for simple figures but when lots of equipment is used, it should look like this. Well done and congrats. I 'd add those to my collection any day. You've done Volstad proud.

I also love this topic as well. More MTO Fallchirmjagers!

Arbomambo, Tiger Calico, Drummerboy and others

THANKS MATE!

I'm great fan of Arbomambo, Tiger Calico, 1stlooney and Boot25.

I'd rate Sixth Army Group the BEST WW2 forum!

Mega thanks again for your postive comments. I will be posting more volsted artwork inspired 1/6th figures later on.

Cheers!

Really, really well done! As others have posted, great use of details, and making each figure a little bit individual. I was able to score several Leopold's myself at a sale and used them as a basis for a squad of MTO paratroopers myself although probably no where near as good as yours. Please feel free to post more if you want as they are a pleasure to look at.
