How strange, yes he does appear to be wearing boots!

These mini-sets from Zvezda are usually nicely composed, but I have mixed feelings about them. Useable for specialists, but I'd rather see Zvezda bringing out some more of their 'proper sized' sets...maybe one day??

The next 2 AoT sets are available now.
6174 - British Headquarters 1940 BEF (see above)
6277 - M-72 soviet WWII motorbike with sidecar & 2 riders

I'm particularly curious about the US figures that are apparently being released soon. ;-) :yeah:

Seems like the DP has no ammo :)

Curious if they forgot to put it on the gun for the photo, or it's missing from the kit, but if I had to guess it's the former.

This seems to be a first look on the upcoming zvezda US Infantry. 5 figures in 4 Poses, all are advancing and include an officer and a bazooka.

I bought their set of Samurai archer one Samurai archer bow got broken so the plastic on weapon is delicate and easy to break...Beside that figures have great detail...

Looks very nice, but compared to existing sets, what does it bring? The minisets are way over-priced

And I must say, I find the poses very stiff. Not as good as other minisets. And not as good as existing ones.

Well, its true that the standard infantry of the respective AoT ranges are not the most attractive ones.
However, in case of this new range of US figures, I hope for more useful sets in the style of previous AoT topics (Wehrmacht & Red Army): D-Day landing scenes, sappers, medics, commanders, support weapons (MGs, mortars, sniper, AT-action), paratroopers, light & medium artillery, AT & AA guns... possibly winter troops... ;-)

The grease gun guy is of no use at all, not the least realistic at several levels, the rest are useable ,but no better than figures already available, but, if it leads to more figures on an expanded range, then great.

I have to agree with comments above, as some of the poses are poor and the detail isn't that good. It looks like Zvezda is taking steps backward.....which is sad given how good many of their sets are

Too few, too expensive, too uninteresting... hardly only good for it's own game. Come on Zvezda, come back to the old days of 50 lively figures in a box!
