good poses; minimal cleanup required.
With 1/48 scale beginning to establish itself as a serious option
for armour modelling, it was inevitable that some serious figure
sets would start to appear to accompany the models.
Judging by what can be seen in this
new release, the Art of War range of figures will be a very welcome
addition to this market. Considering the fact that there are already
a few sets available from this company, I hope that they will have a
positive enough response to the range to inspire AOW to continue to
release figures in this scale.
The sculpting of the figures is excellent, and the poses equally
well articulated. As you can see from the accompanying images, there
is very little clean-up required with the resin parts, and they fit
very well together, with only the minimal amount of filler needed in
assembling them. Cast in very high quality resin, there are
virtually no air bubbles to contend with, as a matter of fact I

Unfortunately my figure painting
abilities are not going to win me any Euro Militaire accolades, as

hands of an average figure modeller, this set of figures will add to
any German tank you decide to use them with.
Personally I rate this set very highly and would recommend them
without any reservation to anyone.
