Comparison photo with modern militia men 1:72 scale

I've had the rule book for Force on Force for quite a while now though I haven't read through it. I went ahead an ordered myself a box of Caesar urban resisters in 1/72 scale and another box of modern IDF so they can fight each other to the death. 

The terrorists arrived first.

I was very pleasently surprised by how nice some of the details were such as the faces, some of the hands and clothes. To be honest, compared to our guys the weapons, however, are almost indescribable. I can recognize what they are, just. I don't know if it's something to do with how they're cast like a technical limitation on fine detail or the original sculpts. 

I never had any 1 to 72 scale figures so this was a great opportunity to compare them with my modern German infantryman. He's a little bit larger than those terrorists/freedom fighters and bulkier (but he's truer to scale if I am the judge of anything!). The details are more crisp for sure but I don't really know what he'd look like after being cast; I mean there might be some loss of crispness, I imagine. I think that our modern Bundeswehr is looking very good among his 20mm compatriots. 

I still don't know how to play the game but I feel a little more prepared. I don't have the right dice also.

I'm making more. Here are our 4 new friends. I can't wait to see how they turn out. Next session will be all about really refining the anatomical forms so I have a good base to work from.

This guy will be carrying a G36 with grenade launcher.

This guy will have an SAR-15 or a short M-16.

 This guy will have a G3

Another short M16 

This is the G36 for 3/5

The scale fits casting the minis are becoming round about 2% smaller. Some details are going lost, too. I have some Ceasar minis in my collection and they are top for plastic soldiers.
Keep on the nice work!
