NEW RANGE: Romanians for WW2

Already leaked in a couple of forums and finally ready for release is a complete new range!

Subject is the Romanian Army of World War Two.

The miniatures of the first sets are intended for the earlier part of the fightings on the Eastern Front, i.e. the years 1941 and 1942, when Romania formed a substantial part of the Axis' forces during Unternehmen Barbarossa. The miniatures are depicting soldiers in summer dress. Some of the most noticeable battles these miniatures would be suitable for surely are the Siege of Odessa (1941), the Siege of Sevastopol (1941-1942) and the opening stages of the Battle of Stalingrad (1942-1943).

All the sculpting work (miniatures + weapon masters) was done by Kosta Heristanidis. The master of the PPSh-41 SMG is used under licence from Kosta, while the master of the MP 40 SMG is used with kind permission of Eureka Miniatures.
If you are looking for opponents for the Romanians, have a look at Eureka Miniatures Soviet. The range is also sculpted by Kosta and a perfect match for our Romanians!

Moulding and casting of the masters was done by Eureka Miniatures in Australia, while the production moulds and castings are done by Hagen Miniatures in Germany. 

The painted examples were painted by maestro Andrew Taylor (who already painted all the German Revolution and China Town sets).
