I have never been shy about my enthusiasm for plastic figures. They are cheaper, lighter, and can be better detailed and more accurately sculpted than metal miniatures. In addition they are more easily modified or repaired. Over the past few years the quality of the plastic soldier industry has gone from strength to strength, with this latest issue from Wargames Atlantic it may be approaching it's apogee, they are simply superb. Cast in a medium gray firm plastic and showing excellent detail, no flash and only the faintest of mold-lines these castings represent the state of the art in modern polystyrene molding. In addition the detail is spot-on and posing of the miniatures is natural and dynamic. Move over Perry boys, Wargames Atlantic has arrived in the big league!
An absolutely smashing set of minis. My only concern (and it is a small one) is that with only four basic poses it could be a fair bit of work to avoid same-looking figures ( and I will admit that is an issue that troubles me FAR more than most folks). Crisp detail, characterful faces, excellent proportions and posing and a very good price all contribute to making this a must-have for any gamer considering Napoleonic British in 28mm.
Very, Very Highly Recommended!
