Plastic Soldier Russians

Having ad a chance to look at these in the flesh I thought I would make quick mention of them.

Plastic Soldier are a new British company that has advertised heavily despite not having a product of it's own to actually sell for several months. But now they finally have got their first set out in two scales 1:72nd 20mm and 1:56th 28mm.

Now in terms of value for money, they are a most respectable 57 figures for £18.50 in 28mm or £10.00 in 20mm, there is almost no assembly which is a mixed blessing, and does mean some rather flat poses, but these will take very little time to prepare compared say to Valiant 20mm or Bolt Action 28mm plastics.

I'm not a huge fan of the support equipment being a separate set, but it is a valid practical concern, and personally i have a stack of spare 20mm Russian machine guns and mortars.

So maybe soon you'll see a few of these filter through my blog, rather than the ubiquitous Germans. Russians are almost as good an eBay seller anyway.
