37 figures in 8 poses...is that similar to their other Ww2 sets?

Maybe there is a structure or a heavy weapon or a pack animal inside to account for the loss of 3 figs.

If the figures in the pic is in the same high level as MARS Cossack an interesting set.

Bluefalchion: New level 37/8 ?
Paul: Past was 40/8

Less figures and as a compensation for a higher price, I think. :eh:

Fewer figures because the ski figures use more plastic and take up more sprue space than a standard figures. So in other words it is just as I predicted.

I don't now, I would like to like them. Some poses are ok but I'm not a fan of figures in really big warm and covering winter clothes /snow parkas. Realistic yes, but all look the same: finns, germans, russians. The one firing Lahti LMG would have been awesome, but he has very long right leg or big knee, plus VERY thick skis. Skis can be removed, but the leg is more difficult.

I have good hopes for finns in summer dress though! No snow parkas and no skiis!

Mars new WWII Finns are available for roughly 2 weeks by now.
Anyone received them in the meantime and could possibly comment on the actual size & general quality?
The completely unusable looking skis & Panzerschreck aside, I could utilize a few of the figures.

Is this set by mars? It’s on the vk site.
If so: I’m seriously considering to get me this set (although I may have said that before).

Painted up, the 1/32nd versions (same poses as the 1/72nd ones) look fine

Thanks.
Nonetheless: those soviet assault troops are popular these days. Zvezda is gonna make them too in future!
