Looks great. One of the few times when the striations work in your favor. I’ve looked at them in some depth and spoken to several people who own them. Should I ever decide to get one, I think the resin ones are worth the extra money.
I still have to get my Elegoo resin printer up and running. Simply because I need to wait until warmer weather so that I can use it in the garage and not subject family and pets to the resin fumes!

I guess these are mid to late 60s so over 50 years old. I am going to do a paint refurb to freshen up the figures and get them back on the table.

I am going to add a couple of Der Kreigspieler standard bearers and SHQ figures to bring the unit up 24 figures.

Thanks all. Bear in mind the this is just the first print using the defaults straight out of the box. The machine was only 250 USD, and I'm not planning print anything but buildings and scatter terrain, so expect it's going to pay for itself in pretty short order given that filament runs about $20/kilo. I'm thinking the worst case scenario is that I brush on some "Mr Surfacer" as needed before painting.

Got them off ebay for 20 quid. I was the only bidder.

I have posted on FB.

A few commented that I should leave as is. I guess that is the difference between collectors and gamers. The value for me is playing with them and not sticking them in a glass case.
