@Bluefalcion- Entrenching tool was more useful than bayonet because bayonet would stuck in soldiers chest, while using entrench tool you hit soldier on a shoulder and paralize his hand.

Great that they're still showing masters. Hopefully one day (even if it's several years away) they will be in a position to produce new sets again...

It seems there are two sets represented here. Maybe a set of "hand-to-hand fighting on Corregidor, 1942" and a set of New Zealand Infantry WWII.

Hard to say, but I would buy both. I will buy WWII Pacific, but not Napoleonic (sorry to say, unless it was War of 1812, USA). I've got to trim back the spending somewhere!! ;-

Any ideas as to which nation these WSS figures belong to?

There is a size issue with the rifle that last Japanese figure is holding up like a barbel. Why so big and why hold it like that?

Just in case nobody noticed:

Strelets has announced another set of figures for the WoSS: WSS set 263 Spanish (pro-Bourbon) Infantry in Square.

Masters can be viewed here: http://pub33.bravenet.com/forum/static/ ... 2&cmd=show

I read that the Strelets-R storage unit was damaged but apparently the key people are still healthy and operating. I am praying for all the persons involved in that terrible war, on both sides, and far a peaceful end at the earliest moment.

For a change, I'm not really impressed with sculpting and poses of these:

Is that really how they held their muskets?

I am just glad Strelets is showing any sign of activity/operation at this point.

Firstly, I'm just pleased Strelets are still able to show masters and appear to have the ambition to continue as soon as they can again.

However, i would agree that this is not a set I'm as excited about. I like the poses, but basically this is a set of 2 poses with the slightest of variations. I think they could have halved the number of these poses and been a bit more imaginative in putting some others in. Surely a square would have had a few men firing in it?
