Damned auto correct! "dis" was supposed to be dio and "tat" was "that" that somehow it couldn't auto-correct. What else the heck could tat be?

Early war German figures are so welcome as the alternatives are few and far between. Need to have more of the same for all of those early-war dis tat I have had planned waiting for the right figures!

Nice review Darren. I'll most likely pick up a couple of boxes of these as the poses lend themselves to all sorts of possibilities dioramawise once you start swapping torsoes,arms, weapons etc with extra sets. These appear to be in the same spirit as the Tristar figures (Mamaev Hill, The Barrage Wall etc)from some years ago in that they are in kinetic poses and would nicely portray movement in a firefight in either an urban or rural setting. The MG team would be ideal for running across a street while covering fire is laid down. I have to say MB are rapidly becoming my favourite figure manufacturer and I do build a lot of figures. They seem to put a lot of thought into their releases in that they can easily be used as a "unit" for a dio or split up and used for others. The cohesion of the set that links them all together is sadly lacking in other manufacturers.Dragon especially with 4 standing around Germans in different uniforms who don't really go together. I'm sorely tempted to change a dio I've been working towards just so I can use some of these.

Nice review, Squire. I would love to see them built up, as I could use a set for a diorama I am working on.
