Warriors has released the first in a new series of figures designed to compliment Tamiya's new 1/48 scale armour kits.



Warriors set 48001 - Tiger I Crew comprises one full figure and three partial figures. The four figures are broken down into a total of eleven resin parts. Casting is as crisp and impressive as we have come to expect from Warriors, and sculpting is very nicely done even in this smaller scale. The figures appear to be suited for cooler weather.

Although the figures are specifically labeled as a Tiger crew, they would be equally at home in almost any 1/48 scale German armoured vehicle. Indeed, the poses are quite generic, offering maximum versatility.

This is a very welcome release from Warriors. Considering the quality and ease of construction of Tamiya's new 1/48 scale armour and vehicles, I fervently hope that these are just the first of a large and long running series of quarter inch scale crew and accessories!


Thanks to VLS for the review samples
