Évaluation

  • Choix de sujet excellent, infanterie autrichienne de la Première Guerre mondiale is unique in this scale.
  • Acceptable wargaming poses, the figurines may be used to raise infantry platoons et companies for Crossfire et similar rules systems.
  • Substandard casting quality. Obvious flash et mould lines need to be removed prior to painting. The editor used the Rai-Ro ZEP-70 heated spatula to blend mould lines into the surface of the model.
  • L'officier figurine is wearing the grey cylindrical képi reserved for generals et general staff officers. Le général peut être convertie en officier d'infanterie by replacing the peace-time képi avec a képi taken from one of the riflemen in the figurine set.
  • Some of the riflemen carry the mess kit attached to the outside of the knapsack, others don't.
  • The two kneeling riflemen have dropped the knapsack as is common in the combat zone. However, it's unlikely that they would have been permitted to discard the bayonet, entrenching tool et haversack as well.
  • The right leg of the standing rifleman looks like it is shattered at the knee, the folds in the trousers are obviously incorrect. Le fusilier avançant has a similar problem avec his left knee. It seems that the folds in some of the trousers were added as an afterthought, et engraved directly into the mould.
  • The standing rifleman wears his bayonet et entrenching tool on the left thigh, rather than behind the left hip. Clearly, that's silly et highly dangerous for the wearer; no soldier in his right mind would do a thing like that.
  • Le fusilier avançant has discarded the bayonet et entrenching tool. If this is a figurine designer's creative interpretation of campaign dress, it's the wrong approach.
  • Un des fusiliers avançant has a damaged blanket-roll around his knapsack. The same figurine pose next to it is ok.

  • Infanterie Hongroise, 1909–1915

The design et casting quality of this particular figurine set is below standard, but joueurs de guerre may want to recruit a few of these troops anyway.
