Valiant Miniatures - 25mm British Tommies 1944/45

This is Valiant's first release into the plastics arena, and a very good set they have produced, however, as with all Valiant figures, the issue is the size of the figures, too big to blend seamlessly into 20mm ranges and too small for the newer 28mm ranges.

The set contains 68 figures where some of the figures are multi-pose, allowing for the selection of separate arms to hold a variety of weapons and accessories.

Additionally separate heads, back packs, spare weapons, and other valuable items of equipment are liberally included on each frame. See contents list below....

The figures are constructed in good, useful wargame poses and there are enough figures and weapons in this box to recruit a complete infantry battalion, and supporting elements for RAPID FIRE! wargames.

Note that the figures are not the usual chunky fellows and may appear to be thin but are actually correctly proportioned.
