Imperial German Infantryman, Battle of Liege, August 1914

Germany invaded Belgium on August 4, 1914, intending to sweep through Belgium to France in a matter of days. The Belgian army offered fierce resistance from the network of fortresses in Namur, Antwerp, and especially Ličge. Combined with unexpected civilian resistance, the German advance was slowed, disrupting the flow of the Schlieffen Plan and very possibly saving Paris.

The CalTek 1/6 scale Imperial German Infantryman figure captures the German infantryman as he would have appeared in these earliest days of the war. The German soldier's distinctive feldgrau uniform, with its polished brass buttons and gleaming black Pickelhaube is an iconic image of the First World War.

Timewalker provided the background research and conceptual design on this figure, in collaboration with the National World War I Museum in Kansas City. The unsurpassed historical accuracy and meticulous detail you see on this figure are the result of hundreds of hours of in-depth study of original World War I artifacts. CalTek has gone to great lengths to reproduce original details never-before seen in one-sixth scale. From the detailed construction of the helmet, to the crowned buttons to the distinctive fabric of the tunic, this figure rivals the highest-end figures out there for overall style and detail.

LIMITED EDITION RELEASE: Each figure sold features a Numbered Certificate of Authenticity from the National World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial.

Watch Timewalker's own Steven Allen discuss the concept and research behind the Battle of Liege figure.

Imperial German Infantryman April 19, 2013
Reviewer: AL RYWALT from VIRGINIA BEACH, VA United States  
Steve and Margaret, you have both out done yourselves with this product!! the authenticity is amazing. You both know that I have collected the REAL thing for years and this is by far the BEST I have ever seen. The detail and workman ship is truly outstanding. With a little forgiveness for simple flaws, many of which I have encountered in the field, there is no better product out there. Kudos to you and your team. Looking forward to the next project,AL

Wow, this is by far the best figure yet January 14, 2013
Reviewer: Brent Conner from Crisfield, MD United States  
I had high expectations on this figure, but it surpassed what it would be like. Even if you are not interested in WWI figures, this will impress even the pickiest of those who collect figures. The price is lower than most other historical figures out there with VERY high quality and authenticity. I hope there will be more to follow soon.
  Well done Steve, Margaret and Cal-Tek. You have my business :)
