Wonderful work and well needed. I could see these two paired with the 2 running guys from Alpine for a whole gruppe attack ! J

Really nice, but what makes them specifically Wiking division?
SEP 10, 2017 - 10:05 PM
Nothing really. Standard later war uniforms and equipment for WSS troops. Just a sexy name to get ones' attention? J

I don't usually splash out on resin fugures due to the cost of them but I'm very tempted by these. I like the way that they're both looking to one side along with the animation. Very nice indeed. Generic SS figures in smocks are always useful, especially in the retreat gaiters for those of us who favour the late war period. I look forward to seeing the rest of their SS releases.

Thanks, the details are very nice. These look worth the price if it's the usual resin cost.

They look great, and that they're described as Viking Division is largely meaningless except perhaps to deflect criticism over the so-called glorification of Nazis. Viking was probably the least party-adherent division within the Waffen-SS and were known as serious front-line fighters first and foremost, largely without the taint that other divisions might have experienced. Years ago I attended a toy & hobby show as a retail presenter and was practically spat upon by a 60s-era peacenik who decided my display of military-themed kits was evil and called me a war-monger!

Taeuss.....obviously he was an educated moron!

Really nice poses. Good luck with these.

My guess would be that they are labeled as Wiking because Radek may have used images from KG Muhelenkampf, or from the newsreels from the era. That said, there is not a huge difference between SS uniform in Poland and SS in Normandy. -Conor
