I have decided to start another guard army and wanted them to have some pizzaz! The obvious way to go about this for me was to upgrade my guardsmen by ordering some head sprues from Pig Iron Productions.
Specifically I ordered these bad boys:
I wanted to give a brief review of the product in case people were on the fence about them. In short my review is get off the damn fence and buy them. They are great quality, perfectly sized for guard, and they are cheap, like i was prepared to pay about 3x what I payed for them. After shipping them all the way to texas they ended up costing $15.00 American Dollars total and were here within 2 weeks.
They did not have any flaws on them, no cracks or mold lines at all. The only beef I really had was that it is really hard to get the metal off the bottom of the helmet where it was attached to the sprue. It took a pair of diagonal cutters, a file, some time, and all of my cunning to remove a majority of it.
However, that being said, to me thats just part of the hobby so I wouldn't knock them for it. Below I have attached some pictures of some unpainted guardsmen and some painted guardsmen with the pig iron helmet sprue.
Also, disregard the paint scheme for now, I am trying to figure out what I want to do. Thanks, Jack
