So I got the Wargames Atlantic kit of their Ooh Rah infantry, and I wanted to examine the kit, see how it matched up with other Death Fields ( the product line the Ooh Rah belong to), and how the parts line up with other models and the Stargrave line.

First, I am not a fan of the Ooh Rah kit. On their own, the figures look nice, though I am not a fan of the garters on the figures pants. I was told they were tie down straps or a harness, but nothing on the figure indicates that. They look like garters or the tops of fisherman boots.

The kit comes with 6 guys on a sprue with a variety of weapons, and 4 different types of heads, and that is about it. No bits to really kit out your guys.

When compared with other Death Fields, the Ooh Rah guys are smaller, but I will say that I used two figures and one was taller than the other. That being said, the Ooh Rah guys, especially their arms, are slimmer than the Bulldog and Raumjager.

What this means is that if you put Ooh Rah arms on a Bulldog, they do not look right. Ditto in my opinion if you put them on a Stargrave figure. Looks like these Marines need to do some push ups.

Unlike the Bulldog and Raumjager, the Ooh Rah comes in a monobody. I was hoping to be able to swap the chest with the Bulldog and leave behind the legs, but nope,not possible. I could try cutting the figure up, but, is the work worth it considering how the arms look?

I did put Stargrave arms on an Ooh Rah body, and it looks alot better.

The Ooh Rah heads look great on all the pics.

So all in all, I give the Ooh Rah kit a B--. Great on their own if you are ok with the legs, not great if you want to swap parts or want figures that look good scalewise in a group.

Various figures: Ooh Rah, Bulldog, Raumjager, Ooh Rah with Stargrave arms, Bulldog with Ooh Rah arms, Stargrave with Ooh Rah arms and head, Stargrave with Ooh Rah head.
