Once again Airfix have provided a decent set of figures that are worth buying for a few reasons. First, if you want to build up a company size force for your tabletop wargames, then you simply can't beat the price. You can build up a decent rifle platoon for less than 10 bucks. Second, the detail is pretty good, and the most important part of any German figure, the german helmet, is depicted very accurately; they also have the classic Y shaped German straps as well as the bread box and shovel. Finally, you get a good variety of battle poses. These figures do have some minimal amounts of flash that needs to be removed but nothing to terrible. The uniforms they are wearing are perfect for a set of early war german infantry.
