|Long Review:|| I bought two groups of figures from this range (the price I got was so good)- Fallschirmjäger and British Paratroops- to fill gaps in my collection.
While these figures are cheap and cheerful, the standard of sculpting shows the apparent age of the figures. The style, while reasonably clean, is a little off anatomically. Some of the Fallschirmjägerfigures appear a little distorted, with a few sporting short legs, and the heads on some figures appear a little small. I've also noticed that some figures have small areas that are not as cleanly sculpted as others- the surface has an almost melted look to it.
|Commentary:||I would place these towards the bottom of my personal list of favourites, because the style of sculpting is very rough, more suited to the 80's than the present.|
|Historical Accuracy:||Not bad, maybe a little mixed interms of strict accuracy, but the overall look is OK.|
|Sculpting:||Average. There is a mix of neat and soft sculpting- almost as if the masters had been exposed to high heat.|
|Casting:||Not bad. The metal is a lot harder than many others I've worked with, so it takes a fair amount of effort to clean the sometimes abundant mould lines and occasional sprues.|
|Sources:||I sent off a request for samples, and received 1 sample figure. While waiting for the delivery, I saw a sale on end-of-stock clearance by an alternate trader. I then purchased several packs from this alternate trader before the arrival of the sample figure.|
