New figure set from Dragon

Post  Jenny Ryan on Thu Jan 22, 2009 10:44 am

DR 6491 1/35 "Hunting the Partisans" Yugoslavia 1943


Dragon’s latest 1/35 scale figure set is a novel one featuring Axis soldiers fighting Yugoslav Partisans. In the box there are three German soldiers from Prinz Eugen, a mountain division that spent the war campaigning against guerillas in the Balkans. The fourth soldier is an Italian, meaning this set offers tremendous versatility to modelers. Each figure is vividly sculpted in combat poses, and they display an assortment of uniforms and weapons. The centerpiece of the set is a machinegun team shooting from a makeshift firing point. Of interest is that the machinegun team members are provided with two sets of legs! This means they can be posed on either sloped or flat terrain. A ‘plastic rock’ that the prone soldier is leaning on is also contained in the set. True to reality, the German soldiers carry a variety of weapons as this ad hoc formation does battle in the mountainous terrain of Yugoslavia some time in 1943. With its German-Italian combination, this valuable set allows figure modelers to depict a theater of WWII that doesn’t receive the attention it merits.

Is that a Gen 2 or a Gen 1 set? And, more importantly, is the plastic rock slide molded? Wink

Well since the blurb the comany wrote does not mention Gen 2 it would be Gen 1.

Jenny-
Well, my avatar must look pretty close, because I get the "Shaggy" nickname alot. Maybe I should stop eating Scooby Snaks and saying "Zoinks" all the time Laughing
And nobody said if the rock was slide molded or not...

That is a cool looking set. I am hoping to try and start painting a few plastic figures myself.

Joe, I've been using and converting DML figures for some time now and they really lend themselves to conversions. I usually switch the heads, re-sculpt the hands, and add equipment straps, but IMHO for the money they can't be beat.
BTW I'll probably buy this set for the Italian alone.
