Alan I have only just got around to reading this line of reviews. One of the things I like about these figures is the locating nipples that have been provided, and which take away a lot of the guesswork. Good review thank you.

Good review Al.
I haven't any NWM figures, but I do especially like the pose of this one. Can add a sense of drama in a scene.

Hi Darren,

Good point.

Hi Brad,

They certainly are innovative, best looking LRDG troops I've seen yet. Strangly the other two reviews passed pretty much without comment, but I suppose that shouldn't surprise one.

Thanks guys.

The limited number of replies can be a double edged sword in that you do not get feedback, it could however mean you have covered all of the areas that needed covering.

Hi Darren,

I see replies more as a boost to the maker, especially where British Stuff is concerned. Sort of encouragement, yes we like it can we have more or vise versa if that's the case.

All too often, no one says anything which isn't any encouragement to anyone

Figuers especially are a risky business, will they be liked, sell enough to make the effort/cost worthwhile, certainly this is so from from the AM point of view. What would you think if you released a product and silence prevailed?

My thoughts anyway.

Al

I see your point Alan and I cannot argue with that, fingers crossed more people reply.

I agree. Very effective pose. It's a pity the head is integral to the upper torso as with a helmet he'd be good as an Infantry NCO from Tunisia to Cassino
