Warriors has four diverse new releases that will appeal to figure modellers, dioramists and armour enthusiasts.

35490 - US Infantry Advancing

This set comprises two figures cast in 14 pieces of pale yellow resin. The torso and both legs of each figure are cleverly cast as one piece each.

These US Infantry are posed in an action setting. Both are sprinting and one unfortunate seems to have been just shot in the head. Expressions, poses and the drape of the uniforms are as good as we expect from Warriors.

Locating pins are included to assist the correct alignment of heads and arms to the bodies.

Weapons are cast on multiple attachment points, so care will be required when removing these.


35491 - German Reconnaissance Troops

This set comprises two figures cast in 10 pieces of pale yellow resin. The torso and both legs of each figure are also cast as one piece each.

These German figures are in a relaxed pose.

Locating pins are included to assist the correct alignnment of arms to the bodies.

Another nice release.


35492 - Luftwaffe StuG Crew

This three-man crew is dressed in an interesting selection of tropical gear. All the figures are full, including legs and feet. The commander is peering into the distance, while two other crew members are seated on the vehicle.

The three figures comprise 12 parts in pale yellow resin. Locating pins are included to assist the correct alignment of heads and arms to the bodies.

Although Warriors has designated these figures as "StuG" crew, they could also be used in other vehicles such as Semoventes..

These figures are a little different to the usual Wehrmacht or SS crews, and will be a welcome addition to a range of kits.



35503 - Human Skeleton

Wow! This skeleton figure is made up of 22 delicate parts which do a remarkable job of depicting the full human bone structure in miniature.

This figure has many possible applications, ranging from a medical diorama aid, to a participant in a supernatural scene, to a skeleton in a military situation.

The parts are beautifully cast by Gordon Stronach.

The box art is pictured at the top of the page.

All of these new figure sets are Recommended.
