Warriors USMC Conference Set 2
by Mark Bannerman
The latest two-figure set has just arrived and serves as a compliment
to set Warriors WA35566 USMC Command Conference Set 1.
The set depicts a USMC standing officer with his arms on his hips and
the other figure down on one knee studying a map. Both figures are cast
in a vanilla colored resin, and each figure comes with separate arms,
head, and rifle. Some minor clean up of flash is required. In fact, the
flash is so light it can be quickly removed with the rub of an old toothbrush.
A little more vigorous clean-up will be required on the standing figures
left leg with a spot of sand paper.
The detail on both of figures is typical of Warriors and the clothing
is very well done. I like the small attention to detail such as the rolled
up trousers on the kneeling figure. The kneeling figure‚s head is
quite animated and full of character which should really bring the figure
alive. I can visualize many conversion possibilities for either of these
figures by only modifying the arms.
This is another offering by one of my favorite sculptors – Bill
Chilstrom - and I always enjoy his figures. Yet again, a very appealing
offering for both the novice and experienced painter alike.
Thanks to Bob Letterman for supplying the review samples
