These are some of the best sculpts I've seen in 30+ years in the hobby.

Anatomy is spot on and the figures convey a real sense of movement and urgency.

The sculpting / molding is clever with very thin seam lines that are easily removed.

There is no annoying seam over the top of the Helmet which is always difficult to remove while keeping the correct shape.

Weapons are in scale but sturdy: no bent barrels.

Prep time was minimal. Three of the figures had separate M-16's (one with separate arm) but it only took a few swipes with a needle file and two spots of CA to attach.

Service was excellent: from date of order to across the pond in 8 days. Packaging was extreme with each figure in a zip-lock bag overwrapped in bubble wrap.

Highly recommended!

Beautiful figures, but I wonder how long before they add to the range. I see no M60, no M79 and no VC or NVA.

Very nice looking figures.

How do they scale to West Wind, Baker Company, and TAG?

Nick: the range just launched and they will be adding more.

VCarter: I only have Empress for comparison and they mix well.

NNascati, you could do a lot worse than to use the Empress 60s and M79s: link

This range is not only growing, but the sculpts are of a very high standard and seem to get better with each release.

Movement and animation are the key to these figures.
Brilliant poses and sculpts, the figures paint easily because of the attention to detail. My collection is building up into a magnificent set of figures
