Review Type: FirstLook
Advantages: Crisp and bubble free casting. Highly convincing poses
Recommendation: Highly Recommended



Having used Art of War figures in the past I knew what to expect from this new set of figures. I have experienced varying quality of figure, in the variety of scales I build in, and I have come to respect several companies as being the “Premier League” so to speak when it comes to figures, and I would assert that Paul Quaek and the Art of War are certainly setting the pace in 48th. (Minially also produce some of the nicest 1:16th scale figures I have ever seen as well)

I am by no means one of the masters when it comes to painting figures, so I; like many other modellers I am sure, rely on good sculpts and poses to bring a figure to life. All three of the figures contained in this set (Russian Tank Crew; Winter WWII) are naturally posed and will look very much at home on either the Tamiya or the Hobby Boss KV’s or T-34’s.

There is a high level of intricate detail realised throughout all of the figures, with all of the uniform detail being represented as well each figure possessing a convincing facial expression.

In summary, I would rate this as a top rate set of figures, as they will add a considerable amount of character to a model or diorama. Superbly sculpted and cast to perfection, it is quite difficult to find any fault in the figures, and thus they come very highly recommended indeed.

Thanks to Paul from artOFwar for the review sample
