Barrett Scale: 28L.
Mixes best with: Several of the ranges out there...
Long Review: These figures are made specifically for the Stalingrad game that Amazon sells, along with the scenery and vehicles they also sell.
The figures in this particular pack make up a squad of German soldiers (2 SMGs, 1 MG and 7 riflemen). The two SMG guys and the MG gunner are individual sculpts, and the riflemen are all a single pose.
The sculpts are not bad, but the mould alignment is a little questionable (there are some pretty severe mould-lines, particularly around the boots and feet.
I must admit that these figures are a little disappointing. In today's market, a range of figures that restricts itself to a single pose of riflemen is a real oddity. The idea of cold-weather Germans and Russians is great, but as these figures are really thin by comparison to all the other ranges out there, they will not fit in well with many others. I also think that the rifles are too thin, and the tips of the barrels are somewhat fragile.
Commentary: Very limited figures and range.
Historical Accuracy: Four Average.
Pose Quality: Four Average.
