MTSC PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT: Andrea Miniature's WWII Range "Eisernes Kreuk" Update

Andrea Miniatures is expanding their new range of WWII character figures released under the banner Eisernes Kreuk (Iron Cross). Andrea has stated they are committed to release accurate scale renditions of real combatants using period footage, photographs and documents showing original uniforms and equipment and a complex process using advanced modeling techniques including 3D and casting technology. The first two figures were released in two popular scales, 1/35th (54mm) for armor modelers and 1/16th (120mm) for figure modelers. Both kits are cast in both resin and metal, and include scenic base. Beginning with the third release Andrea has added two more popular scales in 1/48th and 1/72nd to the range.

  1. I understand that you as a retailer can only sell what manufacturers offer but the constant stream of Nazi soldiers has become offensive.These soldiers were the cutting edge of a genocidal regime, yet here we are saying "forget that, they were good soldiers and wore nice uniforms" Andrea in particular seems to have no moral compass. I have Andrea kits and paints but there are enough other companies to supply my needs and I think I can't buy any more of their products. I have done business with you in the past and will likely continue to, but I am offended today and wonder that you're not.

  2. I respect the time you took to offer this opinion and I also respect your opinion itself. We have always looked at what we offer from our manufactures from a historical perspective. World War II and Germans in particular continue to be the most popular subjects for miniatures. We hope we don't offend anyone but we also don't make judgements on historical figures and miniatures that people choose to buy and sell. Yes the Nazi's were evil, the most evil of all but throughout history there are countless examples of such evil much of it done in the name of good. Thankfully we live in a country where we are free to express our views, be offended by others and have the right to purchase what we choose and ignore what we find offensive.

    In defense of Andrea...they have been in business for decades and have offered figures as diverse as the Wonderful World range to Santa Claus and countless historical figures from throughout time. This new range may be offensive to some but who is to say they won't do a range of Allies next. Every conflict has two sides and they have always offered a fair and balanced catalog of both good and evil.
