Despite what war movies might purport to show, the majority of a soldier's time is not spent in frontline combat. Dragon's latest 1/35 scale figure set is thus an accurate portrayal of a war scene, for it shows German soldiers performing various mundane but nevertheless essential activities. Buckling up a belt, adjusting a chin strap, taking off a tunic or putting on personal gear are pretty ordinary events, but these are exactly the kind of things these five figures are doing. While perhaps not as dramatic as firing a weapon or performing a bayonet charge, these kinds of actions are certain to lend an air of authenticity to a modeler's dioram a.
The German figures represent the early-war period, suitable for any European theater in 1940-41. Each figure is masterfully molded and anatomically accurate. The faces are carefully sculpted, as are their everyday actions. They wear a variety of uniforms, including three Wehrmacht soldiers dressed in typical M1935 field gray tunics, trousers and leather boots. Meanwhile, one figure is kitted out as a Panzer crewman, while the final one would suit a Sturmartillerie unit. Modelers are always clamoring for more figures to populate their dioramas and vignettes, and they don't come any more practical than this! With its credible and lifelike poses, this set will find multiple uses in many dioramas to come.
