MiniArt has released another nice set of five figures, this time portraing a sentry and a medic from the US 101st Airborne Division tending to three German prisoners. As usual, the sculpting of these figures is really nice which will make painting and detailing very straightforward.
These figures will make a nice vignette of their own straight out of the box, or become part of a larger diorama scene combined with other figures, vehicles and perhaps a structure for a backdrop. The only down side to this set is the lack of markings for the uniforms as either decals or rub-on transfers to complete the scene as depicted.
Get yourself a set of these figures and tell a story in your next project.
My sincere thanks to MRC for this review sample.
