This is the first in a two part set, and if this is anything to go by then we are in for a treat.

The set comprises three well sculpted figures all hunched down and running like mad to get into the action and put down some heavy fire. The uniforms are for the Pacific, but with a little modification you could place them in Normandy.

Inside the box are sixteeen resin pieces. Care will be needed when cleaning the parts up.

The only surprise was the fact that the heavy weapons are not in the box. I later found out that the figures are designed to be used with the separately available Academy Heavy MG set. A note on the box somewhere to advise the buyer would have been welcome.

Apart from that minor omission, this is an excellent set. Keep up the great work Warriors.

Highly Recommended.

Thanks to VLS for the review samples
