Reviews by Rob Haelterman

The Lamercraft “Kampfruppe 76” range is a small, though very beautiful range of white metal figures sculpted by Tony Boustead. They are definitely 1/76 and therefore difficult to mix with 1/72 figures, although here and there some might be just a tad larger. Packing is a plastic bag with zipper inside a sturdy transparent plastic box. The box contains a picture, as those below. Most figures are one piece, although some have separate items, like arms. All poses are very realistic. No decals are provided. Added to the series of figures Lamercraft also offers resin ammunition sets.

Kit LC0002 - German staff officers (5 figures)Field marshal and senior (staff) officers

lamercraft/LC0002.jpg

Description:
One/two piece metal figures.
Lively expression, realistic poses and very nice detail (like various insignia on the uniform). Minor amounts of flash need to be cleaned up. The poses are well suited for any scene where a staff meeting takes place. The detail is so fine, that you can even judge the rank of the figures from their shoulder-boards.
You have
- 1 figure in greatcoat, hands behind his back. This is the one that Lamercraft depicts as a General / Field Marshal. It could serve for any rank between major and field marshal
- 1 figure in greatcoat pointing, with separate arm (which in my specimen was included twice). It could serve for any rank between major and field marshal
- 1 figure in greatcoat holding binoculars. Subaltern.
- 1 figure in field tunic and breeches, hands behind his back, holding a map case. Subaltern.
- 1 figure in field tunic and breeches, holding a briefcase, and looking at his watch. Subaltern.
All figures wear the officers belt with clawed buckle. The field uniforms are of the early war type, but as officers tended to keep these longer, they can perfectly serve for any period of the war.


Kit LC0003 - Waffen-SS Soldiers (4 figures) Mixed uniforms. Suitable for all fronts 1944-45

Kit LC0004 - Jabo lookouts (5 figures)Mixed Waffen-SS and Heer. Seated and standing . Suitable for all fronts 1943-45

lamercraft/LC0004.jpg

Description:
One piece metal figures.
Lively expression, realistic poses and very nice detail (like various insignia on the uniform). Minor amounts of flash need to be cleaned up. The poses are well suited for any scene where infantry is seated on an AFV or Panzer and looking out for allied fighter-bombers. Some figures are relaxed, others worried, and one shouting out in fear. Due to the choice of uniforms, and the location of the eagle insignia, two figures are Wehrmacht, and three Waffen-SS, of which one in camouflage smock.


LC0005 US Tank crew set (5 figures)Mixed uniforms. Standing, one having a pee. Suitable for Ardennes or Italy winter 1944-45.

Kit LC0006 - British tankers burying a comrade (5 figures + grave) Mix of denim overalls, battle dress and a padre in battle dress. Suitable for north west Europe or Italy 1943-45

Kit LC0007 - Waffen-SS Tank crew (5 figures) Standing and sitting. Mixture of panzercombi and shirt sleeves. Suitable for spring and summer 1943-44 especially Kursk.

lamercraft/LC0007.jpg

Description:
One piece metal figures.
Lively expression, realistic poses and very nice detail (like various insignia on the uniform). Some flash and moulding “carrots” need to be cleaned up. The figures are in relaxed poses. What cannot be seen easily is that the sitting figures hold a canteen and cook put respectively, and that the upright figure, drinking, has partially undone his coverall, hanging on his waist, showing the SS shirt with sleeve-eagle.


Kit LC0008 - SS Execution Set - SS executing Soviet POW's. Discretion advised

Kit LC0009 - British tankers prisoner set. (5 figures) British tankers in denim and Waffen-SS prisoners. Suitable for NW Europe or Italy.

lamercraft/LC0009.jpg

Description:
One/two piece metal figures.
Lively expression, realistic poses and very nice detail (like various insignia on the uniform). Some flash need to be cleaned up. I can only trust Lamercraft on the correctness of the British figure, but they look good. Both have separate arm(s). Two of the German figures are in Field Tunic, with the eagle on the left sleeve. The other has either a very long smock and belt, or a short (standard) smock over a longer piece of unidentified garment. Although the picture (figure on the left) shows it painted as one item, this seems doubtful, as the smocks I have seen have no lower pockets and are shorter. My best guess is that the lower garment is a “Kharkov” Parka, as it has no visible zipper.


Kit LC0010 - Waffen SS tank crew (7 half figures) Black uniforms. Suitable for all periods 1940-45.

Kit LC0011 - M4 carbines set 5 basic, 10 variants with laser pointers, optics, including 5 with 203 launchers.

Kit LC0013 - Panzer grenadiers with wounded. (5 figures) “Kharkov suits” suitable for winter 1942-43.

lamercraft/LC0013.jpg

Description:
One/two piece metal figures.
Lively expression, realistic poses and very nice detail (like various insignia on the uniform and vivid facial expression). Some flash need to be cleaned up. All figures are wearing the typical mouse grey “Kharkov” parka, typical for the Waffen-SS. One has a helmet cover, two are bare headed. One is tending a heavily wounded comrade, but is probably not a medic, as he is only holding a canteen.

lamercraft/LC0019.jpg
