I have been using Playmobil castles, buildings, ships and other accessories for wargaming props since the 1970s. But as much as I love their highly realistic inanimate items, their figures are just too ‘toy-ish’ for gaming alongside traditional toy soldiers. You’ll find other posts on this blog featuring Playmobil castles and buildings with toy soldiers (like this one), but I stumbled on these amazing links to some videos featuring full battle scenes using the Playmobil figures – some of them hand-painted! Stop-motion is a painstaking and time-sucking process. Hats off to these dedicated Playmobil fans.
