Some figure modellers might think that this large-scale Warriors release looks familiar. That is because this bust was earlier available as a full figure.

I think that a bust version of the figure is a great idea in this scale as it is quite large and not everybody will have room to display the full figure. The bust form is a bit easier to manage.

Inside the box are eight beautifully sculpted resin parts by my favourite sculptor, John Rosengrant.

Test fitting of the parts showed me that this bust will go together well. Even though I have already done the full figure version of this Fallschirmjager, I am looking forward to assembling and painting this release as well.

Congratulations to the people at Warriors, and great work by Chris Mrosko for the box top photo. His work is inspiring! (Editor's note - Chris also submitted the painted bust that was used for this artwork as a Gallery in June)

Highly Recommended.
