The figures are very well done. Crisp castings, little flash, nicely proportioned and animated. They are 14M on the Barrett Scale which makes them a little closer to old school 15mm than the creep towards 18mm.. And while I know that most of the line troops of the Black Brigade did not wear the long black coats, I am still going to paint them as such, because it looks cool!
I picked up the Skirmish Campaigns scenario book on the Black Brigade from Brigade Games. I doubt if I will use any of the scenarios as written as they often call for AT guns or tanks, and I do not want to delve that deeply into the period. I plan on a platoon of Germans, and that will give me games for four to six players as I will most likely use Nuts! for the rules, and a squad for each player is plenty. I have some buildings from Novus that will work nicely for rural Poland. I might pick up a tankette or a German light tank as well. Small project, easy to knock out!
