Warriors USMC Conference Set 1
by Mark Bannerman
I have just received Warrior's latest figure release set containing
figures of two USMC in a command conference (WA 35566). The set depicts
two standing figures - one on a radio while the other is holding a set
of binoculars. The figures are cast in a crisp light yellow resin, and
each comes with separate arms, head, and rifle. Some clean up of flash
is required and resin plugs are conveniently located under the figures'
boots which is extremely helpful in minimizing the clean up process. There
are very few seam lines and removal of these is a cinch. The quality of
the sculpting is exceptional and the subject matter is well done.
I particularly like the attention to the folds in the trousers of the
radio operator. The head is nicely done with special attention to fine
detail on helmet cover. In particular, this figure has his heel dug in
the ground with his foot presumably resting on an object or just in a
very relaxed pose. A well detailed radio is included with this figure.
A bit of flash on the inner legs which is typical of the casting process.
The only drawback is that there is some clean up required on the back
left leg as a result of the casting process.
The second figure in the set is also very well done and I particular
like the realistic twist at the torso and again the special attention
to the folds in the trousers and shirt. This figure is holding a set of
binoculars which are molded into the hands and casted separately from
the arms. The head is very nicely done and has an air of deviance reminiscent
Very nice set and I look forward to seeing more of Bill Chillstrom's
Thanks to Bob Letterman for supplying the review samples
