plastic toy soldier review

Eldar - Our Swede in Norway suggested that we make this site. GREAT IDEA. It's like having our own library. No chat - just the facts

Best buy...

...for 1/72 figures would be any hobby shop (Classic Toy Soldier, San Diego/Michigan Toy Soldier, Toy Soldier Company sites), much less Plastic Soldier Review of 1/72 Military figures. It gives good reviews and looks of a particular war and the figures available.

Generally BUM figures go pretty low in looks, but, low in costs (while a fancy set by Italarie got better poses but at a higher price).

Also if you do not mind doing some painting, the ninty-nine cent stores sell allot of blister packs of 1/72 WWII type figures, much less those, cake topping WWII ships (mush larger than the A&A units, but, tolerable, especially if using those Xeno/home made maps ). Yes suppliment those A&A mini sea fleets, thanks, Pellulo.

Other game parts that can be used...

...for A&A series, is the scaled 1/72 infantry from the Memior '44 games. The basic set is German & U.S.A. troopers, Eastern Soviet Foot, and, Pacific has Japanese Foot.

The armor is definitly too big, but, can be used as a graveyard for destroyed tanks, or, used as a unit to represent e.g. 5 regular A&A tanks. The Japanese tank, can be used, especially for N.Africa, for the Europe A&A game, the GE. & USA tanks are O.K., and, the T-34 stands out.

The guns can supplement the sets that used artillery, again can be used to represent, a multiple of guns/graveyard unit (the USA unit looks pretty plain, the others are definitly something different , to look at).

Thanks, Pellulo
