Awesome new figure set from Dragon

Post  Jenny Ryan on Wed Feb 18, 2009 3:52 am



The new Premium Edition item is an extensive set, including no less than four rubber rafts and two associated bridge systems. Linked together, they are able to span a small watercourse. The rafts are well defined, with lengths of string offered to add detail for the bindings. The bridge-ways and hand railings are also accurately depicted, complete with a delicate wood-grain texture. To populate this pontoon system, the set includes a total of 13 soldiers, of which four are infantrymen and nine are pioniers. Some of the latter also come with bonus hands that allow a handy change of pose. The comprehensive set is ideal for modelers wishing to render an early-war scene, perhaps in France or Russia. These all-conquering German soldiers are moving inexorably forward, with not even downed bridges able to slow their lightning advance!

I want it Very Happy

Johnny,

I love that display! Hopefully no harm came to the relic you used as a base (unless it is a copy of the relic in which case I want one cyclops )

Thanks a lot, sharkmouth. We used that relic like some others in our series of Historic Based Dioramas.

If you need such a relic (or others) let us know.

Best regards

Awsome " new " ? figure set from Dragon.

Post  G Cooper on Fri Feb 20, 2009 6:54 am

Well It's a good thing that they are going to be available, but these are not exactly new figures.
It is a set of two older figure sets with some new Gen2 update pieces.

The two sets are the "Whermacht infantry Barbarosa 41"



and "Large rubber dingy w/pioneers"


put together with multiple pontoons. It's still going to be a good set as the "Barbarosa" set is getting very hard to find and it is a really good set considering it's age.With the new Gen2 upgrades they should be really nice, but definatley not new.


And Jay: everthing on the internet shows the price is supposed to be right at $28 USD.If the importers don't ream us all on this it shouldn't be that bad. For 13 figures AND the boat stuff you get quite a lot. Even if you just want the figs thats only a little more than $2 each. Smile

Post  G Cooper on Fri Feb 20, 2009 7:43 am

No worries there, because I still think it will be a great set to get with all the Gen2 stuff to hang all over them Very Happy . I have always preffered the dio / vignettes that are NOT in action. There will be at least one hundred and one uses for these figgies and I will get at least one set. Cool






Oh, Almost forgot!

Oooohhhhhhh I'm a lumberjack and that's ok

Didn't notice this.

Post  G Cooper on Fri Feb 20, 2009 9:56 am

Maybe it's the beer or the whishey, but I hadn't noticed till just right now that I got a promotion from being "new" to the rank of seasoned veteran Cool . Well with a promotion like that I think I deserve a beer Very Happy

Maybe I should send the Supreme Commander some M&Ms to say thank you for the promotion. Wink

Dragon have been re hashing some old figure sets into Premium releases of late which is a good thing IMO.The bonus of being newish to the hobby is that I have not bought these figures yet or the re hashed Fallschirmjager Premium set thats just been released.I can imagine that most of the seasoned modellers might not appreciate these releases but I do. Very Happy Looking forward to more!

Cheers
