First Look

DML lately has appeared to be cleaning out the "back room" on figures, and this set – with artwork by Ron Volstad dated 1993 – may be one of them. The set provides three German infantry men and one Polish officer prisoner.

The figures are all of the original DML style – each one consists of two legs, torso, arms and head rather than the more involved breakdown of the "Gen2" figures. The Germans all come with steel helmets and full kit (and three old one-piece Kar 98K rifles, not the new "WA" series ones) and etched brass slings for two of them.

The Pole comes with no kit whatsoever but can be immediately identified by his "Czapka" style hat.

Overall this is a nice set but does suffer in comparison to the "Gen2" ones.

Thanks to DML for the review sample.
