Some parts of the armor may seem somewhat bulky,... but the real problem is as likely to be the reverse; The models looking unusually tall and thin next to 'heroic' 28mm. example putting almost any 1/48 historicals next to the plastic Imperial guardsmen. Despite being a smaller scale, and.. shorter, the GW figure still manages to look chunky by comparison.
Granted Panzer, but unless Im mistaken, practically if not all of GW's 40K Imperials, maybe all factions in fact, were done in "Heroic" 28mm scale.
And another thought that came to mind while looking at the D F trooper, even kind of gave a 'chuckle' but forgot to mention this: What? Do I hear.. an "Eldar-ish" soldier speaking?
Yep.. he went there.
I always did wonder whatever happened to all of the Eldar after they left Middle Earth. Lets face it, a few "dozen' 1000 year summers in the "Undying Lands" and ya gotta at least be curious as to whats out there amongst the stars.
But seriously, I can easily over look that 'taller, thinner' point as its simply because its another race all together. Granted, 'we're still gonna need some kind of Great Coat Light Infantry (minus the "great coat" of course) and thats "lite" infantry so theres going to have to be a balance between 'body armor' and making them look as it they could move faster. After all we arer talking the 'day to day' soldiers, not the "Shock" troops.
