I finished a couple of German LMG teams (in ca 1943-44 style) during an otherwise slow hobby period. They are Warlord Games plastics with parts from several of their different kits, including some metal heads. With camo covers on the helmets and other bits they are a bit more varied and more interesting to paint than the regular Blitzkrieg Germans in the basic box (and I have quite a few of those painted up already anyway). I always prefer painting metal figures over plastics, but must admit that the end result often looks just as good. Some details are definitely better in plastic. In this case the weapons, the mg:s themselves. They cant really be sculpted as thinly in metal.
