Hi Waleed, well, toy soldiers are only "toys". I'm sure you could and I know many, many other people who have built some of the better figure kits, especially those produced by Dragon, and painted them into masterpieces at a fraction of the cost of these sets.
1/35th modeling is so
much more accurate that there really is no contest. The joy of toy soldiers comes from the display and the ability to put together an "army" with no effort, but at great expense. I have in my closets enough fantastic 1/35th kits that will never be built, even if I took the rest of my life doing it.
On the other hand, I have a King and Country Roman Army and Fort that I can display in a couple of hours--the company's Romans are really some of the best on the market, very well painted and in great poses. You won't find any plastic 1/35th Roman infantry on the market. I also have a Conte Viking Long-ship that is incredible.
I've bought a few of these German sets, they're great to look at in my cabinet, but in no way comparable to real models.
I suppose this makes me sound a bit lazy, but I grew up in the 50's and my fondest memories are of playing with toy soldiers that nowadays would be scorned for their lack of authenticity. It's all in the imagination, I suppose!
David (P.S. I hate to turn this into a commercial, but, if anyone in the US wants to take some of my 1/35th, 1/350th, 1/700th or 1/400th kits off of my hands, please do PM me. I promise you a better deal than on other sites! Any 1/35th kit I have, I will sell for, at most, $30--shipping included and after-market details included where I have them! Sorry I am, indeed, that shipping costs prevent me from making the same promise to those outside the US.!!!! )
