The bottom of the coat of the figure at the rear really helps to give the feeling of a figure in the cold trudging their way back to Germany as the war turns against them. Excellent looking set of figures in progress well done.

This would go really well with the kit I have in my stash by DML of sentries in Wachtmantel. I definitely want this!

WOW! This company becomes better and better. Great ideas and their figure sets are small vignettes or dios of their own

For me one of the top 3 plastic figure manufacturer on the market...

(others are MiniArt and DML)

Nice poses in this set, they look good. Not sure about the chap carrying the ammo box in his hands, rubbing his hands together might be better.

They look good though.

Good looking set! Two cents on the chap holding the ammo can...

Notice there's one on his back... methinks there's a bit of strap making needed so that the boxes are actually slung over his shoulders.

The center guy with the ammo can (not the one pointed out by Alan McNeilly) has his arms resting on the box but with no visible means of suspension - he is not actually carrying the box, neither is it attached to anything. Maybe he also needs a second box slung from the first and over the shoulder with a strap.

Masterbox are really pushing the boat out on these latest releases.

These actually look like resin figures from that first photo!

Great looking set, very realistic! Kind of reminds me of the movie Stalingrad, towards the end. Looking forward to its release!

All I can say is that it's hard not to have faith in this company. I really like these figures as well and will add them soon pending there release. It's really nice to see figures sets like this that work as well in stand alone projects as they do with larger dioramas.
