Every now and then a set of figures will come out that just blow you away - you have to have them. This is one of those occasions.

Warriors' 1/35 scale USMC Stretcher Team is a big set, with five figures and a base depicting a group of Marines in the Pacific trying their best to get a wounded buddy to medical help.

Inside the box are one base and a hefty bag of thirty five resin parts - wow! That is a lot of work, but well worth the effort. There will be a bit of cleaning up of parts but nothing too difficult. However, some time and care will be required to make sure all the parts are associated with the appropriate figures, and that they are all correctly aligned with each other.

It might have been nice if each figure was packed in a separate bag but, hey, its no big deal.

One aspect that really impressed me was the facial expressions. They are very convincing.

I highly recommend this set to all, and I am looking forward to future releases from Warriors.

Highly Recommended.

Thanks to VLS for the review samples
